Flames of Construction

After a very long break, since my false start with Flames of War I have finally gotten back to it. The main trigger for this was Sam asking for a tutorial game, something I couldnt facilitate as I had never played; but we bashed through a few basics together to try and get a feel for it. Long story short I found myself fully enthused for the game, but realised; I have a force but no appropriate terrain. Thus I began to make

It has real windows

a nice lawn and hedgerow

and it even lights up!

Boom one down, just 6 months of building and Ill have a village. Ok so that wont happen, but Im think farm house to begin with (it has a non descript look for versatility); so a few sheds and that will be structures for now. Im also knocking together wood land, hedgerows, roads and some boggy ground. So soon my welsh guards will have some rural Europe to fight over in my own home.


  1. Weird, I've been hankering for a game recently (well, of anything really, but FOW specifically) and there you go and start playing it again :)

  2. Perfect timing then. We will have to figure out a date, I know your availability can be tricky; as can mine. If we are to play at HA then Wednesdays have become my plausible night, if you wanted to play at my place then I can be more flexible on which night; but need to get a bit further with my terrain projects.

  3. For some reason your updates dont show up on my dashboard?? Happens with a few peoples. Anywho altho I cant get involved in another system I will take notice of this as if one day i do decide to do another system this one interests me most.

    Your gonna get a lot of building materials next week (xmas boxes!)

  4. More FOW toys were on my list to Santa, so hopefully Ill get more than just building materials.

    Ive only just started playing it myself, but it seems a very fun game; with loads of possible builds are varied tactics.
