Just got the new FOW
rulebook and it has perked my interest.
I am a 30 year old long time 40K
player who deals with the geeky scifi insecurities that the game brings. I have heard wonderful things about FOW
and have always had a deep interest in WWII, and military History in general. I think FOW
may have a ruleset that can satisfy me for the long haul, and may help me with my very fragile ego when it comes to my Non-wargaming freinds.
So if you had a somewhat limited budget (wife will not allow another huge
investment into my "toys"
, what Sourcebook would you get? I will probably have to get into some pickup games at the local store until I can hopefully convert some gaming friends, so what sourcebook do most use?
Is it still true you can only use armies from the same time period/sourcebook for balanced games?
Old Glory seems to have a great selection of 15mm WWII mini's at great prices, especially with the membership discount. Does their line of minis work well for the game? Will people object to me using them in pickup games? Can you assemble a well rounded/sourcebook compatible infantry force using the "50 Piece" lots of rilfemen, command, etc. they sell?
Thanks everyone in advance.
