Hey All.

I recently played my first game of Flames of War and have a couple of observations. Confused

WARNING! All opinions are of the scribe and may be offensive to some readers...

- The minis look great - a bit crowded - but good visual appeal at arms length.
- There is a major flaw in gameplay. A player moves then fires all his units without any part on the Defender. This leads to some very weird results. As a defender, you set-up a reasonable defense and the attacker drives up and shoots you in the flank while your troops sit and read the newspaper...there is no opportunity...none...
- The rules on saves are a bit strange...Ive hit you, and your herringbone twill gives you a 50% chance of shrugging off the 7.62mm round. Rolling Eyes
- The rules on troop experience affecting their status as targets are slick. Good idea! Idea

Anyone else have any feedback?

Troy
