Getting Great at FoW - Part 3

Mastering FoW - Hi everyone, I thought I would display my arrogance finally and talk about being 'great' at FoW. Am I 'great'? No, am I better than I was this time last year definitely - and over the course of the tournaments and games I've played I've developed a few insights into getting really good at this game. The areas I think you need to master are 'lists' , 'rules' and 'Implementation'. So here's another trio of articles exploring these.

Implementation - so what do I mean by this? Well I'm going to sound like a broken record, but you need to play games. But I'm going to change this slightly, you have got to play games out of your comfort zone. What do I mean by that? Well I do not think to be really good you can play the same way repetitively.

Vietnam US Infantry Company

Hello All

The last leg of my US leg infantry (pun of sorts intended) is finished! I will admit I was struggling to find the time to paint them up so I sent them over to our own Matt (Papa Bear) so I could finally start playing some games!
Matt painted the models while I did all the basing as I wanted to make sure it matched the Helicopters I had already done.

T-34 Tankovy Company (SBX29) - Review

Hi all

I picked up a couple of the new T-34 Tankovy Company (SBX29) boxsets over the weekend. I wanted to see how the first Battlefront plastic and resin kits went together, something I think we'll see more of in the future.

Lets see whats in the box.

German Greatcoat Infantry (GE862) - Review

Hi folks, Matt here.

I wanted share with you all my latest painting project (early war German infantry - Barbarossa style!) that I'm working on for a certain upcoming tournament in January and thought, whilst I'm at it why not do a little review on the all new German Greatcoats (GE862) at the same time!? Two birds, one stone and all that jazz!
Do not be fooled by the Late war symbol being shown on the packaging... These models are all for early war (along with the rest of the German greatcoat range). I have since ordered another 'infantrie platoon' and the rest of the options to build my 1550 points army for next year. For reviewing purposes I shall stick to focusing on the contents inside of the infantry blister GE862.

M48A3 Patton (VUSBX05)

Hi All

Continuing with my Vietnam US army I have added a couple of Patton Tanks and man these bad boys are massive!
These are the last models I needed to do, bar the two infantry platoons (which Matt is painting up for me) for my first US infantry list. So once I get them back off Matt expect a few Nam AAR's as I bought a fully painted North Vietnamese army a few months ago.

Lists
It is important to realise that there are better lists than others, but bringing a good 'net' list  will not mean you auto win.
