I mentioned on the Rising Fury thread that I was planning an Operation Market Garden campaign ...
Every year I run a FoW campaign, and we are up to Market Garden, but numbers have been dwindling. Chris suggested I open it up to Bolt Action players as well to increase the player base, which sounds like a great idea.
No solid details at this point. Just an idea if a plan. Wanna get the slow grow in progress before I start thinking about the next thing!
... rather than derail the slow grow league I thought it best to start a new thread.
My broad plan is this campaign would be open to everyone on Westgamer. People not on Westgamer... well... get on board
but more seriously I'd like at least 1 person in each game to be posting details to keep the momentum going.
The campaign would be using the Flames of War Firestorm system, as i have been using it for the last couple of years and it seems to work well enough. If your not familiar with the system this means game will more than likely not be balanced.
A big component of the system is strategic unit movement and that means paratroops deep behind enemy lines will be out numbered and out of supply. In game terms you will be at a disadvantage points wise and rules wise... but that's how para's like it.
Games in both Flames of War and Bolt Action will be permissible to resolve battles.
I still need to do some work translating FoW to Bolt Action, but after some initial dabblings it seems feasible.
Personally I'm a fan of theatre specific stuff. Russians and KV-1's deploying behind enemy lines alongside Polish paratroopers just looses the feel for me, but I understand everyone's collection may not suit this particular operation. That said I'm not intending for this to happen around September, so if the theatre appeals you've got plenty of time to research your force and get collecting! (which is why I mentioned it on the Rising Furt thread)
So, post thoughts, idea, preferences here and I will take them into consideration
