Lothan, I went a little crazy when it came to Easy Army and Forces of War... If you e-mail your list, I can enter it into either and then e-mail you back the pdf.

kevinedmondkwok@gmail.com

That being said, I really really want to bring the following list...

Tankovy Batalon (Red Army) - Desperate Measures - 1750pts

Tankovy Batalon HQ - 1 T-34/85 obr 1944
Tankovy Company - 10 T-34/85 obr 1944
Tankovy Company - 10 T-34/85 obr 1944
Tankovy Company - 10 T-34/76 obr 1942 - Cupola Upgrade
Spetsnaz Platoon - Cmd Panzerfaust SMG Team, 4 SMG Teams, 1 Captured Sd Kfz 250 half-track, 2 Captured Sd Kfz 251 half-tracks

The one I'll probably end up bringing... due to time constraints on painting 31 T-34's...

Canadian Armoured Recce Squadron - Market Garden - 1750pts

Canadian Armoured Recce Squadron HQ - 1 Sherman V, Major Currie VC in Sherman V
Candian Armoured Recce Platoon - 2 Sherman V w/.50cal AA MG, 2 Firefly VC w/.50 cal AA MG
Candian Armoured Recce Platoon - 2 Sherman V w/.50cal AA MG, 2 Firefly VC w/.50 cal AA MG
Candian Armoured Recce Platoon - 2 Sherman V w/.50cal AA MG, 2 Firefly VC w/.50 cal AA MG
SAR Recce Platoon - 2 Stuart VI

We'll see what happens. I even have an IS-2 Hero Heavy Tankovy Army I'm thinking about...

I'm getting a little bit done at a time and likely won't be 100% done before the tournament, but at least they'll look ok. It'll just be the final details that are missing I think.
Once they're all jammed together on the bases, the look of all the models is not going to matter much.

As far as the tanks go, it's going to be a good turnout. Quite a bit of interest already and looks like there might even be 3-4 guys from here going up. Which will be great.

Uh, yeah that looks sweet. The PDF allows a different hq than the platoons? Normally you have to match it up with same type. I've never read it, it's a lw PDF based on what theatre? Italy books might offer better choices Andrew.

Hey Matt,

The PDF is neat because it allows the Tiger P as the HQ,

Something about in LW they were low on Elephants so the regwomwnr IC was a Tiger P. It is basically an elefant with a Tiger turret, doesn't get Tiger ace skills though..

Chris, that's alot of armour.. Hens and chicks tho right?

Hey, is this list legal?

Canadian Armoured Recce Squadron - 1750pts

Canadian Armoured Recce Squadron HQ - 2 Sherman V, David Currie
Canadian Armoured Recce Platoon - 2 Sherman V w/.50cal AA MG, 2 Firefly VC (late) w/.50 cal AA MG
Canadian Armoured Recce Platoon - 2 Sherman V w/.50cal AA MG, 2 Firefly VC (late) w/.50 cal AA MG
Anti-tank Platoon (SP), RCA (Canadian) - 4 M10C 17 pdr SP
Field Battery, RCA (Canadian) - 4 OQF 25 pdr gun, 2 Cmd Rifle Teams, Staff Team, Sherman OP

The main thing is that the M10C's are listed as Self-propelled Anti-tank Guns. Does this count as a third tank platoon, as they are fully tracked and have turrets?

Absolutely, I count anything that has tracks and a gun for the most part. M10's, Marders etc......those to me are legal and will be used by other people in other lists.

they are "tank teams" so yes, count as tanks.

Thats a slippery slope definition though.

A German heavy platoon are "tank teams" but could consist only of 8cm mortar half tracks, for 110 points. Bam, 3rd "tank" platoon.

I dont think anyone in our little group would be that silly though Cool

I believe the spirit of the tank restriction in this case is that three of the units have to be made up of vehicles that would be found in World of Tanks

un-armoured recce jeeps are tank teams but they don't count, half tracks don't count either I believe because you can dismount them..

I hope someone is, would be happy to tell them they have to watch.

Gave a pretty good example and if someone wants to be 'gamy' with the wording in the rules and real life word TANK, then have at 'er. Bring on the douchebaggery!

Ha ha ha! Well, I was waffling between a 30 T-34 list (see the AAR Matty just posted to the main site) that I've been painting all night, a IS-2 list, and that Canadian one. But since you won't make it, I may have to play the Canadian one in your stead. =P



Not kidding... Everything is on the painting table and I keep switching between what I'm painting...
