We can have as many batteries of armored artillery as we want though right?

It says please limit yourself to one battery of artillery period. It can either be armored or not, you decide. I'd take the priests obviously.

Your email said the only limit was going to be tank company with 3 plattons of armour, why the restrictions on arty?

Final details are on the webpage and on the Petawawa page as well.

Why the limit. Let's see.....to stop artillery from being a centerpoint in a tank tournament. Forces people to play the game face to face, instead of 105's and 155's blowing everything up in sight. Thought I would try it out since other events have similar restrictions.

Your Finn list precludes you from taking three tank platoons? If you don't build it online, I can't verify it's legal.

Go to FoW Lists Chris, they have a builder you can use. If it's a tank company and can only take two platoons and a hq, can you get more armor through the supporting platoons?

Marty, sounds like after your promotion, you have less time than before, sorry dude. Catch you at KoW?

Less and more time it seems just not as regulated. As of now in sitting in a command centre doing surveillance work. Have to this all September. October I think I'll be back to regular though...

Well seeing as Elephants aren't turreted I fail to see your point... Wink

Unless you are talking real elephants but I think a mobile AA like an Ostwind would mow down a herd of them more effectively (!)

I don't listen to comments from people who don't play in, or care about events.

The turret thing was an example given to me. Fully armoured tank teams, fixed guns or not. You guys know what a tank is, it's funny I have a few people signed up already and they understand.

Chris, like I said. Is your list a Tank Company? If it is, you're good.

The biggest limitation to this list is too few shots, the classic German heavy armour issue,

The other is a lack of 2IC..

Why do you always put your hands over your ears and go "lalalala I can't hear you" when we point out contradictory rules in your scenarios and stuff?
