Do many people play confrontation in the UK and if so how well does it play?

Yes there are a fair few UK Confrontation players and the numbers are growing with demo games.

http://www.conf-federation.org.uk/Board/index.php is the Confederation forums for the UK organisation and has a lot of information on where people are playing and getting people into the game.

cheers and what is the game play like as in warhammer/warmachine/lotr?

Confrontation is small scale 10-20 a side. It can cope with bigger games than that and with the new edition is more geared to teaching new people than it has been previously.

I see so you don't have to spend loads then and can play quite quickly

You can play with about 3 blisters per side for a small game.

In this area (St.Louis is the "city"), Confrontation has a following, as do WAB, Starship Trooper, War Machine and several more systems. There is also a GW only game players wargaming group too.

Some opponents are into Confrontation. Great minies (most seem a little bigger/bulkier than GW's), prices about the same(item by item), very good details on the minies.

Edit time (Below is posted for humor) ;)

Several of my regular opponents (and myself) prefer larger games when doing WAB(historical) or fantasy(WHFB). Besides wives can count. :eek: They seem to notice what comes into the house accompanied by a sales receipt!!

We just tell them it was on sale!! That's half price! :D

Talk to people on the Confederation and you may be able to get one of the demo team to come along to show people how the game plays.

just one question are the Confrontation sub games still suffering from the language problems that Confrontation suffered from

I have hybrid, the rules are not written as clearly as I would have liked... however the official english forums have a nice faq to clear things up.

That said, I just got it last week, so I haven't had a chance to see what problems may come up, faq or no faq.

It's not a problem of translation - the original rules, published in french, also suffer from less than stellar clarity.

The latest Confrontation 3 book is a good example - they had to put out an errata/FAQ just a few weeks after the product hit the stores because of the several mistakes and ommissions which plagued the product.
