Custom Flames of War Card

A couple of months ago, I accidentally found that people on 4Chan made their own custom Flames of War (FoW) unit cards - 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
Mona and Penelope Pussycat belong to PAWS Inc.

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 :

- 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 as a reference for unit stats.
