Just kicking this off today, but we hope the collection will grow into a really great resource for folks looking for Historical Scenarios for Flames of War!

Very nice, interesting scenarios from a quick skim. And not just FOW, but other rule sets can probably convert them too.

I know guns and vehicles are 1:1 (correct me if I'm wrong, please), but what does a stand or "team" in FOW represent? Half a squad?

Very nice. Love the idea.

infantry teams are typically 1 squad or 1 special infantry weapon (like a bazooka + loader). So a US Rifle platoon is 11 stands in total- 3 sections of 3 squads each (for a total of 9 stands) + 1 command stand for the platoon leader + a bazooka stand.

Gun teams represent a single gun + crew

vehicles are 1:1

Great idea. We need more guides for historical scenario gaming in FoW.

The forces in these scenarios appear somewhat delpleted/battle worn to me. Totally appropiate!

Thanks guys! Got a few more in the hopper as well. We'll see these guys steadily growing.

Historical scenarios would be great for my Blitzkrieg Commander games.

Feel free to take a look at them! I'm sure they're easily adaptable to anything since there isn't much FoW specific stuff in there.

Very nice. Now all we need is some AARs! :)

If I can add to what indierockclimber said about the infantry stands, basically yes, they represent half a squad. For most armies 2 "Rifle/MG" stands = one squad with each stand generically representing about 5 people and 1/2 an LMG and having a rate of fire of 2 shots per turn. The US forces are somewhat of an anomaly. The squad was large (maybe 12 guys?) and the BAR was somewhat less than an LMG (but on the other hand everyone had automatic rifles) so they have represented a US squad with 3 rifle stands each with a rate of fire of only 1 and some special rules. As said already certain weapons like bazookas and light mortars also appear as smaller stands of 2-3 people.

When I plan my historical scenerios I bump up the the scale from platoon to company.
