I'd have to play Yanks with no Tanks...this does not sound like a good proposition to me...

We need to get Duane to come out with his Cromwell's..

Rob, are you trying to decide between tank heavy and INF heavy Canadians?

You'll want anti infantry lists, regardless...Those books are heavily infantry slanted...

i agree that for sure you need something to deal with infantry,

And then some anti tank guns to deal with tanks,

i like that the armies are restricted tot he two books, makes for a much more balanced and themed tourney,

Your security platoon is reluctant trained?

Hull mounted AT - 16 gun (panther is AT-14), lose the co-ax machine gun, lose wide-tracks, gain unreliable. Approximately 33.33 points less than a standard Panther A.

If I go I'm thinking of this:

Cdn Armd Recce

HQ 3 Shermans with Currie
troop with 2 Shermans and 2 Fireflies
troop with 2 Shermans and 2 Fireflies
infantry platoon in Rams with 50 cals
then I can select one of the following:
infantry platoon in Rams with 50 cals
recce troop of 4 Stuarts or
4 25 pdrs

Rob, you and i can run identical lists and see how they do..

With the list above, the armd recce have eyes and ears and cautious movement, so I sometimes use some of the tanks to lift GTG, that's why I usually don't use recce for that list.

I also have a bunch of Panthers and STugs. Maybe I'll make a German list.

You don't need to overthink the anti-infantry too much if it's not your type of list, or you simply would rather run armor. There will not be any turn six auto win missions, just like all my other events.

Yes. I agree Duane should get his last few hatches on and get his tanks green, but we're moving into cottage season. So maybe not this year. LOL

In regards to SAR, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Your tank platoons have eyes and ears, and cautious movement, but they're not actual Reece (so don't push back ambushes). Hence, why I nickname them pseduo-reece.

The other thing is that the Stuart Platoon is actually automatically broken up into two platoons of two stuarts each, or just one platoon of two stuarts. So Rob, you'd have 5 platoons in your list if you took the stuarts. However, it's a pretty cheap way of getting yourself to 6 platoons if you could somehow sqeeze in an extra platoon.

Not a lot of cheap platoons to buy for that list to get up to 6 platoons.
I paid an extra 85 points (nothing else to buy) for the third Sherman in the HQ. If I'm correct, it forms a platoon with the 2ic. If I take the 4 tank Stuart platoon that would give me 2 platoons there if you are correct. Now I've got a total of 6 platoons if I go with Stuart Recce over a second infantry platoon or a gun troop. Might play test that before May, but then I'd have to paint a troop of Stuarts (and buy two more).

Yeah, you are correct. The 2IC would form a platoon with the extra Sherman. The Stuart Patrol rule reads:

"SAR Recce Patrols operate as separate platoons, each with their own command team."

On second thought I think I'll give this a pass. The very thought of painting more germans right now...... I should concentrate on my EW army for June and for Nationals.

Painters of the world rejoice. Someone else will have a chance to win best painted. Having said that Matt V surely must have enough painted stuff to do up a LW list.

This might work. 50% on the board missions could be:

Currie
2 Shermans 2 Fireflies
2 Shermans 2 Fireflies
Infantry platoon in Kangaroos

Off the board:
4 Stuarts
2 Shermans
