I saw that there were a few Flames of War players posting in this thread. So, what and how much have you guys got and what do you play against?

I have a 1,500 point Panzergrenadierkompanie (Fortress Europe) and a 1500 point 9th SS Panzerkompanie (Cobra/PDF). I'm also building a Sperrverband (Hammer & Sickle) out of the bits I've stopped using for my other companies (StuGs and Hummels) that will become a 1,500 point force. After that I intend to increase the size of my forces to 1,750 points each.

I play against British Infantry, US Armoured, German Panzers and British Paras.

I started with FJ and did all the support options I then did the same for a German Recon force then the Italians caught my eye and I did a Carrie (tank) list and since I again also did all the support options it was east to jump in and do a Italian infantry force another hobby of mine is railroading (HO scale) I do era 2 German railroading so alot of my tanks also play double duty has flat car loads. Points ? I have no idea. But having a bit of options for army building is fun and allows me to build to suite....and I just started my first allied list A British Cromwell tank force all lists we play at are 1750 or 2000 1500 is only rarely played and then only mid-war. 1750 for both mid and late is the most popular for pick up games and at events. I like the local event scene more than the nationals and like the overall gaming community over any other. In a more competitive format of gaming the fan base just seems more friendly and carefree and out of all my gaming groups its the only one I would consider playing in at the national level largely due to the great people that play. Collecting FOW armies has been fun one word of advice , If you use sable foam trys to sstore your armies I "silver sharpie" is a great tool to label the out side edge of your foam trays

I'm a very slow painter so only have 745 points of British late-war armoured (normandy). Just ordered a box of typhoons, a rifle platoon and a pair of m10c anti-tank vehicles as well which I'm looking forward to painting up. I have not played anyone yet as I dont have much of a force to speak of and am more of a painter than a gamer, but I really love working in the 15mm scale.

I run a 1,500 Gerpanzerte Panzergrenadier Kompanie, Late War Normandy.

It's actually 2. Panzer Division, Panzergrenadier-Regiment 304, Panzergrenadier-Bataillon I, 1st Kompanie. Once I replace the StuGs (which could historically be argued came from 352. Infanterie) with Panzer IVs I'll have a kompanie which accurately represents its historical analogue.

I'm finishing the paint jobs for a club painting challenge which ends on May 28th. Perhaps I will post some pics when I'm done. I think they're going to turn out well if I can pull off vehicle numbering properly. Going to have to paint them on myself to stick with historically-accurate numbering schemes.

Just a quick request... please upload pictures of your painted troops as we would all love to see them, and the more FoW stuff we get, the more it will encourage other FoW players to sign up and join in. If we can get enough FoW discussion rolling then we can get a dedicated FoW forum set up here.

Here is some of my FoW stuff:

I've got 1500 pts of Mid-War Hungarians that I field as a Puskas Szaszad (Infantry Company), but if I change up the organization I can change it to a Kerepakos Szaszad (Bicycle Infantry Company) which is pretty fun to play. It's not something I play with frequently, because the person I play with here has creative interpretations of the rules, but I've enjoyed it in the past. I'll try and throw some pictures up this weekend when I get some time.

You asked for it, you got it:

And so, due to rising costs of maintaining the Golden Throne, the Emperor's finest accountants spoke to the Demigurg. A deal was forged in blood and extensive paperwork for a sub-prime mortgage with a 5/1 ARM on the Imperial Palace. And lo, in the following years the housing market did tumble and the rate skyrocketed leaving the Emperor's coffers bare. A dark time has begun for the Imperium, the tithes can not keep up with the balloon payments and the Imperial Palace and its contents, including the Golden Throne, have fallen into foreclosure. With an impending auction on the horizon mankind holds its breath as it waits to see who will gain possession of the corpse-god and thus, the fate of humanity......
