FOG:R for FOG:A/W players

Has anyone put together a set of notes on "this is what you need to know to play FOG:R if you already play FOG: A/W"? Just hoping to save a little time, here. Thanks!

I believe that Essex may have just released a Catalan Company FOG starter set, they probably have appropriate cav figures.

If you haven't checked out Splintered Light minis, take a look at the webpage. It is great, very nice pictures, and they are an interesting collection. A lot of more fantasy-related pieces, and very nice sculptures for the new book. The owner also does terrific painting work--he painted some of my c...

Los Angeles-Area-FoG

Are there any wargaming clubs playing FoG in the LA area? A friend of mine just moved out, and now that his chosen game (Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures) has been cancelled, he is looking around. I would love to get him involved.

Thanks,

Jim.

Rather too late with that comment to influence I'm afraid - we've nearly finished the eastern lists. And of course, they do include a Khmer and Champa list. Wow, I have to read all the way to the end to get to the punchline--just returned from Angkor Wat, would be disappointed if this weren't the c...

WE are still fielding "Starter Armies". We didn't like the lack of room on a 4 by 6 foot table. We now use a 4 by 8 table. It's the size we have been using for over 30 years. We do like to use 9 or 10 pieces of terain....Well 8 or 9 is safer to say. About half the time, terrain pieces number 9 and ...

Who are you going to play? Are you principally looking to play club or private games or are you planning to enter open competitions? If the former then what do your prospective opponents use? Kevin This is a very good point--if you want to primarily play with club-friends, and they all play ancient...

Ruler/Measurement Tools/Thingies

Hi, I am a new player, and one of the people teaching me the game has a set of measurement tools that I would like to find a set of. They are used in the drawings in the rulebook--pages 62-63, for example--and are basically metal tubes cut to varying lengths (my opponent has 2,3,4,5 and 6 inch) with...

Hey, folks, be nice. Lance taught me the game last week (unless there is another Lance from Atlanta), so I can attest to the fact that he is a terrific member of the community. We all just have different ways of voicing our opinions, I am sure no ill will is meant. No discouraging the newbies by hav...

Painting Services

Can anyone recommend good painting services? I am new to historical minis, have exactly none, and there don't seem to be many full armies going by way of ebay. Thanks very much for your help! I am in the US, by the way.

Jim.

PS--And I should say, I can't paint, not even a little.

Basic Book Recommendation

Hi, just started playing, with a "gaming" background as opposed to a "military history" background. I enjoy reading history (even have a degree in economic history), so this seems like a good place for me. Can someone suggest a few basic military history books that deal with armies that have been "F...

This is a great idea. Coming at this game as a complete beginner--never played non-hex-map miniatures before, though have done a fair share of the hex-map variety--getting a grip on all the variety is a trick. I am sure it is easy for those coming from a DBx background, but for the rest of us... Loc...
