A couple of months ago, I accidentally found that people on 4Chan made their own custom Flames of War (FoW) unit cards http://i.4pcdn.org/tg/1488032870114.png - judging after the parameters, this unit card has been created on the purpouse to mock Phil Yates, one of the game designers.

While indeed the 4th Edition has a number of mistakes, mostly the lack of M24 Chaffee light tanks, M18 Hellcat tank destroyers, StuH42 self-propelled guns, and JS-3 heavy tanks in the current rulebook, I believe that the Kak cultists have gone too far in mudslinging Battlefront Miniatures.

The only good thing is that the Kakistani provided a picture, which makes a fine base for custom FoW cards. Above you can see my own one, derived from the original. The parameter explanation is below:

1) Motivation Hero 2+ means that the Team Pussycat passes morale tests on rolling 2,3,4,5 or 6 on a standard 6-wall die (d6);

2) Skill Veteran 3+ indicates they succeed in attack rolls on rolling 3,4,5 or 6 on d6. Except assaulting - they only fail on rolling 1;

3) Is Hit on Cautious 5+ means that your opponent must roll 5 or 6 on d6 when attacking Team Pussycat in the open ground within the 16 inches/40 cm range. Further range and terrain obstacles give cumulative penalties to hit them;

4) Save Infantry 3+ indicates that the Team Pussycat player has to roll 3,4,5 or 6 on d6 to avoid killing the team;

5) Tactical, Terrain Dash, Cross Country, and Road Dash = how far can you move Team Pussycat during your turn;

6) Cross AUTO = Team Pussycat crosses terrain obstacles automatically (without the need to roll for crossing)

7) Weapon bar = indicates the firing range, rate of fire (ROF = the amount of dice you roll when firing), anti-tank value and the firepower (on a roll 2,3,4,5 or 6 Team Pussycat destroys their enemy).


Flames of War belongs to Battlefront Miniatures

alitta2I don't know this card game, but it looks fun that I have imagined how one would look like with the  Ugandan Expandables  :D

Platoon would be composed of:
- Steven Senegal
- Van Dammage
- Commando Jesus
- Ebola Hunter
- Bruce U (U is standing for Uganda)
- Rambo Quebecois (he's presented here)
- Segwanye (he's presented along with Ebola Hunter and Commando Jesus here)

TeeJay87Flames of War is more complicated that cards - you also have to use figurines (tanks, infantry teams, guns, aircraft and so on) for playing; the cards are only to provide unit stats.

There's a good explanatory video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWryJ4zxq6o :

- 4:30 the British player's force, composed mostly of infantry (figurines on bases, four-figurine sets are rifle teams, two-figurine sets - heavy weapons and three-figurines - command units), backed by 3 Comet tanks, 4 Cromwell tanks (one with 95mm howitzer and three with 75mm guns) and Jeeps

- 5:56 their opponents (Panzer IV H or J)

- 7:35 British turn 1, notice how are the units moved;

- 9:44 British attacking German infantry - the British player rolls dice for the attack, 9:58 the hits are assigned;

-10:16 German player rolls for infantry saves, he lost two infantry teams from the British fire;

- 11:59 British paratroopers assaulting SdKfz 251 halftracks;

Won't say what happens next to avoid spoilers. ;)

TeeJay87You can compare my card with official ones issued by Battlefront Miniatures - have used this one http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-iH2ZTYaAj_8/VglsAWSTnPI/AAAAAAAADOY/zvC8qcQvjEE/s640/unnamed%2B%252823%... as a reference for unit stats.
