5 games over 1 day in a very fast format at an event thats always a lot of fun particularly as you play the games on 1/2 sized boards meaning you are very in much in each-others face from the get go.
There are usually few restrictions on what you can take only things like Top Armour 2 tanks and Air power have been restricted in the past. More importantly you only have to take 1 combat platoon which makes then easier. This years event returns to Wanganui and is now Late-War but themed (which seems to be a new trend in FOW gaming) around the Battle of the Bulge. This restricts lists to those drawn from:
- Devils Charge
- Fuhrerbegleit & Fuhrergrenadier Brigade (PDF).
Fuhrer PanzerKompanie (Begleit)
CHQ - 1 x PzIVJ
Panzer Platoon - 3 x PzIVJ
Grenadier Platoon - PF/Rifle/MG + 6 PF/Rifle/MG + Light mortar
Volks Rocket Launcher - 3 x 15cm NW41
AA Platoon - 2 x Sd Kfz 10/5 2cm
The company is CV except for the Rockets and Grenadiers who are RT. Thats not ideal but good enough for this format. Having them as PF/Rifle/MG teams means they are going to be horrible for enemy armour AT12 vs. their side armour in defensive fire. The scenarios are 2 x Pincer and 3 x FfA so I 3 games at least without any reserves (not sure about Pincers rules).
Will struggle against anything with FA10+ but anyone who takes that is only going to have 2 tanks in their army and nothing else.
