Status Report (August 5, 2012)

I've been getting the hang of Force on Force over the past few days. So far I've learned the basics of infantry combat, but since I don't really have too many armored vehicles, it might be a while before I can do some mechanized combat and see what that's all about.
Brody came over last night and we did a 15-minute or so skirmish between some 9 or so Cold War U.S. Infantry and I used 9 random figures I grabbed out of the bin just for the game.
He and I both enjoy the game quite a bit.
Now here comes the part where I always seem to fail: making up my mind.
Iran-Iraq War: Bloody, long, trench warfare, hundreds of casualties or the India-Pakistan Wars: Swift, short, lots of mechanized warfare, blitzkrieg-like tactics and medium to high casualties.Then there's the Yugoslav Wars: Long, mobile, bloody, fought in a series, a little more recent.
I'll make up my mind soon, maybe with a little help from Brody.
Stay tuned!


  1. Enjoy the process! I spent a month or so trying to decide a theater for shipwreck! before choosing Libya 1985. Forces have been ordered so now I'm just trying to work out campaign details.

    1. Sounds like you and I have similar dilemmas.

  2. I'm starting to get used to FoF now too. The other day after a brake from playing, I came back and played for a while, after a few minutes realized I didn't have the book with me and was playing by memory!
    Iran Iraq sounds like it would be cool. I'm actually in the process of making Saddam era Republican Guard.

    1. I look forward to seeing that Republican Guard in action.
