Next Tournament - Reading Warfare

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Fri Sep 16, 2011 1:50 pm

Now need to start planning what to take to Reading Warfare.

Would still like to consider taking the Mixed Tankovy Batalon, being Fearless Conscripts can be hard being hit on 2+ as I found when shot at by German FlaK36 guns.
But then really worked in my last 2 games as I had too many tanks for my opponents to kill.
What did not really work was the Razvedki Platoon in only the last game of 'Free For All' did they do any damage and that was from the Passenger fired MG's.

Considering dropping them for more Rocket Launchers with extra crew, would mean firing like 16 guns for a 12" by 12" template which I can re-roll to hit with (found the 4+ being Trained a bit hit or miss).

So my new list would look like:

205pts Combat - T-26 Tankovy Company (10 x T-26S)
605pts Combat - Medium Tankovy Company (10 x T-34)
620pts Combat - Heavy Tankovy Company (6 x KV-1e)
275pts Support - Guards Rocket Mortar Launcher...

Finished MidWar Mixed Tankovy Batalon

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Fri Sep 16, 2011 1:30 pm

Forgot to take my camera to Newbury Colours
So finally got round to taking some photo's of the painted army. People were surprised at how good the Zvezda models looked on table.
Really worked well when just taking the one manufacturer and not mixing with Battlefront which seem to be a good 1mm bigger in all dimensions.

Got new building for my FoW collection

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Fri Sep 16, 2011 1:21 pm

While at Newbury Colours picked up another building for my FoW.
There is a guy in America that produces large pieces of resin scenery for 15mm scale and has a range for Stalingrad.
The great thing with them is that they are over 300mm long by 150mm deep (whereas my other buildings are never more than 100 by 50)

I've already got a Tractor Factory one which I loved painting up.

This time I picked up a Bombed Monestry (like Cassino)

Will enjoy painting this one up

Russian Mixed Tankovy visits Newbury Colours MidWar Tournament

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Mon Sep 12, 2011 3:31 pm

So took my MidWar Soviet Mixed Tankovy Battalon along to Newbury Colours.
The organiser turned up late leaving 24 gamers catching the breeze.
We get going by 10am and my first game was Encounter verses a British 1st Army
Infantry Company

He had
3 x Rifle Platoons (1 with attached Piat)
1 x Churchill Tanks (3 tanks)
1 x Royal Artillery (8 Guns) Battery 25pdrs
1 x Medium Artillery (8 Guns) Battery 5.5"

He deployed his Artillery and one rifle platoon, I deployed my rocket launchers and the KV-1e tanks
He spent four turns failing to range or hurt my KVs, so I decided to steam forward and roll over his artillery - managed to kill 3 medium guns (didn't know they had 32" range!!!)
Then on his 5th turn he got his Churchills which stopped my attack on the objective, but he also dropped all his artillery on them and destroyed 3 and bailed 1 - I then failed my morale and lose the platoon, meanwhile his infantry have moved to assault my rocket launchers on the other objective.
My turn 5...

Russians in MidWar

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Mon Aug 22, 2011 12:36 pm

With my British Armoured Car Company finished except for the Typhoons for the Battlefront Euro-Tournament in September, its time to start on my next army for the Newbury Colours and Reading Warfare Tournaments.
Both these are running MidWar Tournaments and as I like the Eastern Front was a choice between Germans and Russians.
With the latest release of the KV-1e models by Zvezda, it had to be Russians, so Mixed Tankovy Batalon from the Eastern Front Book.

You have to take 3 Combat Platoons so I've gone for Red Army (Fearless Conscripts)
T-26 Tankovy Company (10) T-26S obr 1939 @205pts
Medium Tankovy Company (10) T-34 obr 1941 @605pts
Heavy Tankovy Company (6) KV-1e @620pts

This compulsory takes up 1430pts of the total 1750pts

So now some Corps Support (both of these are Fearless Trained):
Razvedki Platoon - 1 Command Rifle/MG, 6 Rifle/MG Teams and 4 captureed Sd Kfz 251 halftracks @160pts
Guards Rocket Mortar Battalion - 4 Katyushas, 1 Truck,...
