I've been wondering for a while now why there is a Bolt Action, Command Decision and Flames of War board, but no board for Battlegroup? It is immensely popular in my local area, and I can only imagine it has a sizable following in the rest of the world as well.

I'm not entirely sure how these boards get decided on however, is this something the admins decide on their own?

I haven't seen anyone around me play them. Anyway, you make a suggestion for a new board, then Bill asks everyone for their opinion, and then he does whatever he wants.

I play a lot of Bolt Action. I know one guy who bought a battlegroup game, and hasn't played. But I'm for a board, if only to see some AARs

You have to propose it in a poll.
Go to TMP Poll Suggestions.
If the poll Suggestion gets enough support, Bill will run an actual poll.
The wording is usually "Woukd you support such a board?"
If it gets 50 positive results, a board will be created. A majority is not needed, just enough support to show ….. support. grin
Good luck.

I took a shortcut. I hit the [!] button and asked the Editors to crosspost to Poll Suggestions.

But that's the usual way to get a new board.

Very active Facebook group for these rules, as well as The Guild forum. Not sure it needs a board on TMP.

That's the standard objection to all new boards.
The OP wants a TMP board.

I'm in. Good suggestion

Me too, I think adding this board would also give the rules added exposure as you could use your FOW armies in 15mm without rebasing them.
