I am really interested in ordering some Hex and Counter games. I do not own any Compass Games and these are the ones that look the best to me:
La Bataille de France, 1940
A las Barricadas!
Steel Wolves: The German Submarine Campaign Against Allied Shipping – Vol 1
Red Star/White Eagle: The Russo-Polish War, 1920 – Designer Signature Edition
Raiders of the Deep: U-boats of the Great War, 1914-18
I’m always interested in submarine games and I love early WWII French stuff as well as more overlooked/unknown conflicts.
Ran into a couple of guys in my FLGS store today and talked about playing some non-GW things. I thought I would list them out here, if anyone else might be interested. Its easier to link a blog post, rather than post a bunch of links in Facebook.
- Flames of War
I REALLY dig this game. It has probably been my favorite to play out of everything I have ever played. It is 15mm WWII that plays on a 4X6 table with a lot of terrain. I really like the rules and the combined arms aspect of it. If someone wanted to try and get it going in the area I would dedicate myself to a weekly game.
2. Team Yankee
Basically the cold war version of Flames of War. Emphasis is more on Tanks, helicopters and jets. I have actually bought in, with a French force for Free Nations.
3. L’Art de la Guerre
I am more attracted to this because of its competitive scene. It is a detailed ruleset and the worldwide competition is fierce. I have 2 armies for this and would love to play it regularly. I even bought a mat for it.
4. Bolt Action
Have a few people with rules and armies in the area but we haven’t got together to play. I’d love to play and collect 28mm WWII. I also the like the turn/dice mechanic. Myself have a large, painted Russian force.
That is all I talked about in the shop today. Remember Malifaux is getting off the ground locally, and all the other rulebooks/armies I own are for another post.
This is a small sample of my backlog of games. These are the ones I have made significant progress in but haven’t touched them for YEARS. South Park is the most recent, I haven’t played it in about a month. I think the best thing to start over, this is the order I think I want to go in:
