Re: Demo game at Advance the Colors September 14th

I am using 1812 lists for Russians vs French.. Though I fudged the list a bit for the learning game.. Roughly 950 points aside.. Each person will be running a division or so.. I got it listed as 6 players, but I can take up to 8. Basically each side will have 3 infantry divisions and a cavalry divis...

Re: QRS

I agree, I am putting on a 6 player game at Advance the Colors next month and all I have is the QRS from the yahoo group.. Though useful for a player who knows the rules.. It looks very scary to a new player.

Bought some Russians at a flea market

I bought 2 big lots of Russians at the flea market at Historicon from two different people.. I got them base ready to go.. Several of the units I thought had really dark green uniforms.. They now look black/blue:-/ They are old minifigs it looks like.. I remember reading something about a German leg...

Re: 800 or 1000

Each round you score points, I don't think I have seen a tie and the end of a 3 round tourney.. 6 games over 3 days would not happen at a normal Con.. That's the IWF.. Basically at 3 day Con.. You will have one day for FOgA, next FOGR.. Then a day for FOGN.. That way you do not dillute your.players.

Re: 800 or 1000

I have no issue playing 3.5-4 hrs rounds.. That is a normal tourney round game.. The issue was 6 games.. For me 3-4 games for a tourney is what I can handle.. 650 points like I said would be a good way to introduce people into the game.. Or if you were short on Time.. Like Thursdays at Historicon. 3...

Re: 800 or 1000

If I want a quick playing set of rules, I play DBA or big battle DBA... I also have a Napoelonic version of them:) When I want a more serious game, I play FOG.

Re: 800 or 1000

All the ancient tournies that I have ever been in over the last 14yrs are 3.5 hour rounds.. That's with the FOG games and DBM.. At the IWF in 2009 they had 6 games over 3 days.. 2 each day.. A little too much for me, but it had to.be worth while for everyone traveling from all over the world to play...

Re: 800 or 1000

Having played in FOG:A tourneys at 900.points and FOG:R at 800 points, 3.5 hrs works fine up get a battle settled.. For FOG:N.. 1000 points is too much and 650 is too small. I like 850-900 points.. Though the 650 would be good for a beginners tourney. 2 hour rounds maybe.

Re: Historicon July 20-21

Alas, I now cannot come.. Because some crackheads broke into my house and stole my tv and xbox among other things.. I am now spending money on an alarm system, instead of coming out on vacation. :(

Re: What do you think about this list for Russian Inf Corps?

Going by the list, up to 1 mixed divison may be usded which may contain up to 8 bases of dragoons and up to 6 bases of light cavalry.. All mixed and Infantry divisions MUST contain 3 Inf and 1 artillery unit... I didn't realize I could make a cav div out of my infantry list... I'll tinker with it so...
