TheNeverThere was at the North Store this past Wednesday; watching as I beat up Farmpunk with my Panzers. He had a little something with him to show off.
His 21 T-34 Battalion Deal had come in from The Plastic Soldier Company.
For $89.00 + Shipping, he now has a 21-Tank 1285 point Mid-War Russian army. And since each tank comes with 2 turrets, he can also use these in late war. Where he can mix and match his options.
I'm looking forward to fighting the swarm! Here's the list I'll use in our first game:
145 - 1iC: Panzer IV F2
100 - 2iC: Panzer IV F1
580 - 4 Panzer IV F2
460 - 4 Panzer III L
Total: 1285 Points
For 1285 points, I can only take 10 Panzers. Six Panzer IV's, and four Panzer III L's.
The F2's have the AP11 guns needed to beat up the T-34's at range (with Armor 6, he'll get a 5+ save), but their low frontal armor means that I can't let him get close. The PzIII's have slightly better frontal armor, but will have a hard time penetrating the T-34's with their AP9 guns (He'll have a 3+ save to the front, and a 4+ to the side). As always, the Germans will have to be sneaky and plink off their opponents at range. The F1 can contribute some direct-fire smoke.
It should be pretty interesting!
