hello to all,
yesterday I visited the bFaS stand at Crisis in Antwerp and had a long conversation with one of the stafmembers. I had been eying this game for quite some time and yesterday I took the plunge and bought the rules and Cossacks and the Gostiewsky foray to have a good start. Today I prepared the Cossack infantery for painting and started painting!
I live in the Netherlands and noticed that there are several other players in the country. I hope they live not to far from The Hague so we could meet in the near future. I am primarely a historical gamer although I like eg X Wings as well.
Well, thats it for now. Have fun all of you and keep painting and gaming :-)

Welcome lex, always fun to see some new blood. :D

There are enough players in South-Holland, a bit less (as far as I know) in the other parts. I live in Almere myself, but able to travel so now and then.

Hello lex, good to see another player joining the ranks. I'm a bit further away, in Groningen. :D

Still, there are meetings of the BFaS community in Amersfoort, couldn't make it last time, but hopefully I will be there next time. Or is it time to organise a special BFaS day in the Netherlands?

PS I also have Cossacks iconKOZ I have painted enough for two (smallish) skirmish forces, and there's still more to paint (isn't there always?)

I too like the idea of a Dutch gathering. It would be nice to meet fellow bFaS gamers, to talk about the hobby and to have a game. In my case more of an introduction to the game as I have not played a game yet (nor read the rules to be honest). I only bought the figures and rules this saturday so I have an excuse :D

The next Ducosim convention is on 23 january 2016. Two weeks after that is Poldercon, on 7 february.

If people are up for a more general meeting to talk and play some games, I'm certainly interested. Somewhere central, I suppose?

a meeting at ducosim would give me time to finish my army. Never been to one. That is, not after 1986........ Can you play a game overthere?

Lex, you are welcome to come to Leiden when you have an force ready. I play at the Tafelridder in Leiden and have plenty of terrain. I would also like to play a couple more games at Murphy's Heroes though. I would also be happy to come to Tabletop Kingdom to spread the faith.

I play Muscovites btw.

I mentioned Ducosim because there have been several meetings of BFaS players there. It is possible to play a game, if you reserve some space.

There will be a demonstration of BFaS at Poldercon (by Ed B, wonder who that might be :-D ).
