My Flames of War attempt on Roll20's VTT system :)

Been playing around on my down time from running my Pathfinder RPG Campaign. (just got done with Session 9 on Sunday!!)

Russian Lines

Now I am trying to figure out the range of movement and shooting ranges, so far I have cut them in half, but until I test the game out live, no clue if this works or I need to cut it down more.

12 inch movement is reduced to 6 squares of movement per unit in a platoon

6 inch movement is reduced to 3 squares of movement per unit in a platoon

And so on

Now for shooting ranges

Basic tank cannon have a 32 inch range so reduced to 16 square range

Basic Infrantry shooting range is 16 inchs so that is reduced to 8 square range

And so on. Used a 50 square by 50 square map grid.

Dice are rolled as well as all movement is done via in the Roll20 game when both players fight it out, can be used for play by post, but live can be so much more fun, then add in the Google+ hangout chat voice feature and it could be all set to battle it out!!

Cheers, now who here could be my test subject for a small armour on armour game.........??
