I finally got a chance to try FOW. I had a Soviet Tank company painted since 2008 and never a chance to give it a spin. Today I got to do so at the Dragon's Table in Champaing-Urbana, an awesome store where I play most of my games.
My opponent was using a US Armored Company I think. The game was mostly exploratory to learn the rules. I a) mis-deployed b) used really atrociously my meager infantry and c) underestimated how much Centralised Control punishes the Soviet player. So I lost (nothing new here, move along).
The rules though seemed pretty good, and streamlined. It was nice to see all those painted minaiture tanks blow each other up! Artillery and infantry are musts. If you have all tank you won't lose, but you won't win either. I have a bunch of soviet mortars on the painting shelf for more then a year and a half . Time to pay them, and time to get some more infantry, and another SU 152.
Here are some pics from the game
