1 Next Saturday (5th) on Sun Jun 29, 2014 9:43 am

It occurs to me that I'm not actually available next Saturday night. Is everyone available on the Sunday? Otherwise I'll just have to miss it.

I can do the Sunday.

Or I think could do the week instead, but Monday or Thursday would be a bit trickier.

Wes, if you want you could come to mine for a game? At whatever points level you're able to do by then. I'll change my army around so that it isn't too much of a repeat of last night.

Yeah that sounds good, hopefully I'll have painted some more men by then.

Don't worry about having to paint loads as my table is only a little bigger than the one we played on last night.

Can only do 861 points at the moment so it depends what else I can paint by the end of the week...

861 points but three tanks? Treadhead? You?

You know what you need? To paint some infantry!

Just drop a man from your officer to use as an artillery observer...951 points. Surely moving up to veteran can fill that gap?

I can do many more, its the anti partisan list which is quite limiting. I'm sure it'll be 1000 by Saturday...

15 Re: Next Saturday (5th) on Tue Jul 01, 2014 11:19 pm

Should be 996 points by then! Game on!

16 Re: Next Saturday (5th) on Wed Jul 02, 2014 2:32 am

Excellent! Turns out I can do 1000 points already, so I did in fact reach the goal by the end of June even though I haven't painted everything I wanted to.

I say we veto the maximum attrition scenario before we start! Others are more interesting!

Yes! Let the dice decide! We'll just reroll it if its maximum attrition!

Not sure I can do a great deal more than 1000 points using the anti partisan list. The only real things to add are a couple more squads of infantry and an armoured car.

You could do more than one platoon I suppose? Or just use different selectors?

19 Re: Next Saturday (5th) on Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:49 pm

This is all true. Think with full use of infantry and an armoured car it'll be about 1500 points. Suppose I could have 2 squads of SS...

Ooooh, and put them both in halftracks!

I always forget you can add a captain or a major as well.

21 Re: Next Saturday (5th) on Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:01 pm

I actually think a captain/major might be a useful thing - I'm always ending up with one squad that gets 3-4 pins and then can't act at all for the rest of the game.

Not allowed them for partisans, but I think they are allowed for volkssturm. Have to work out an actual army for those (although without any heer everything has to be inexperienced I think. This would be... different).

22 Re: Next Saturday (5th) on Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:12 pm

Yeah, I think i'd only use them in really big games though. 150 points for a Major that can be taken out by a sniper!

Not technically true. 150 points for a Major that WILL be taken out by a sniper!

How's the painting going Wes? What points do you think you'll be at?

By the time he comes on here to answer, probably everything!

I've had another paint fest and now only have 3 infantry left to paint. Just deciding what to buy next!

Do something different! Do British or something! Do it!
