My first foray into FWC and a nicer bunch of people would be hard to find.

Looks like it was fun! How long did the smaller game last vs the big one?

The 2000 points games took 2-3 hours to complete

The 8000 points game took 5 hours to do 4 turns but this was down to a couple of people never having played before and a lot of air strikes and artillery which are time consuming

An air strike include rolling …
1. to see if it arrives
2. to see the deviation from target point
3. for anti-aircraft fire
4. attacks against each unit under the template
5. saves for each unit hit
6. suppression for each unit hit

If you have 5 units under a template and 5 air strikes per turn and several people to interact with then that's a lot of time

And most of the time airstrikes don't do that much damage

I would like to try the 8000 point game with only 2 players to see whether it would speed up or not
