I picked up a copy of these rules and was quite impressed. I want to adapt them for micro armor. It is an easy matter to halve all the distances. However, where do I get the statistics for anything other than the four included vehicles. I have everything from Bradleys to T-55s. I do not want to have to buy packs of models I do not want just to get the cards. Any suggestions?

Are the cards two sided? If not they usually show the card fronts for most of the vehicles in the showcase articles.

The base rule book (hardbound) should have all the stats for US and Soviet forces. Other books add more (UK, West and East German, more Soviet and more US)

Actually the newer version of the rulebook took the US and Soviets stats out since they have their own books now.

It's all available online- either scans of existing cards or unofficial cards for units not in the books. There is a Facebook group. Google away.

This is not correct. The original rule book does not have all the stats for all of the U.S. and Soviet forces that have now been released.

You can also find some of the cards on the Team Yankee webstore, check the various army boxes for the cards (they may not be shown on the individual unit boxes)

It looks very good in 6mm without halving the distances. Although I ended up selling my Team Yankee setup, it made for some very nice-looking games.

TBH it seems BF are trying to make people buy the books/kits to get the stats , as they aren't even included in the TY list print outs on Forces of War ! huh?

I'm sure that's true.

Tell me, do you work for free?

Let me try that again. The Rule book have the stats for what was available when the book was released. I would not be surprised that the "pocket size" trimmed those pages out.

Red Thunder and Stripes would be the two books to get to cover the US and USSR.

No but except for a few lists , you have to pay for forces . All the pre V4 FOW lists come with stats when printed . grin

Well, since you asked, actually, I do.
It's called volunteer work. (TNR anyone?)
What I have not had to do, with previous FOW products, and do not care to start, is to incur the expense of buying an OPFOR army solely to obtain the intel.
Battlefront's current business model is to package one card in each box. This varies from $27 USD to $45 USD per box of each single vehicle type. Thus if you want to know your enemy you must buy an enemy force. A limited time only a card set is available containing current production. That's $10 USD? times up to (currently) seven nations.
I believe that this price structure is part of the resistance to V4.

Again, you can see the statcards for the starter armies in the Team Yankee webstore.

Example:

Soviets:

But you do need to buy the individual army books (VolksArmee, Red Thunder, Stripes, Free Nations, Leopard, and Iron Maiden) for the stats that aren't included in the starter armies.

I find it extremely odd that people seem to think that cards are essential to this game. They are a nice bonus, but nothing stops you from putting everything onto a spreadsheet and print out your own cards. You still just need the rulebook and army books to play.
The Forces of War fiasco is probably a bug that BF has been taking its sweet ass time ignoring: you can still see stats when you are selecting units, just not when you hit the print button.

The cards a very convenient to have.

They are not required to play.

I think it's easier to make an army using the cards than it is the book!
