PostSubject: New Player Needing Help Deciding On Army.   Mon Sep 30, 2013 6:34 pm

So as the title shows, I am a new player to Flames of War, looking to begin picking up and playing this game. However now comes the important question.

Which army do I start with?

I have some idea as to what I want to do. A mostly tank force. However I have no idea what the different strengths and weaknesses of each nation are. Some Flames of War websites say that Russia is best at tanks. Then another will say they are terrible at it and that Russia's strength is in infantry waves. This is the kind of contradictory information I have been given several times.

So I come here asking: For a new player which nation tends to do best at tanks? And if the answer is 'all of them' or something like that, then what is each nation's strengths and weaknesses at running mostly tank lists?

Hi WD, Welcome to the war! IMHO if you want to go with mostly Armor you only have 2 choices 1. German, They wrotebthe book on armor and were a force throughout the whole war! 2. U.S., They had a rough start at the beginning of the war but with Patton, Abrams and tech they became a force to be reckoned with! Downside for U.S. is that they really weren't a force until late war(for FoW purposes) these are my opinions and others might disagree but I would go germans as you make up viable lists for all eras with minimal cash outlay, Good Hunting, Gary

Late to the party, BUT, GERMAN TANKS ARE TYPICALLY THE BEST AND EASIEST STARTER FORCE TO MASTER. German Special Rules and Quality give you an easier learning curve.
