PANZERSHREK DOUBLES TOURNAMENT IN JULY

My Next FOW tournament this year is Panzershrek 2200pts Doubles Event. in Palmerston North



So as not disappoint Andrew and I will be teaming up again, as have had most fun in the past - firstly with a 
huge LW T-34 army, then a LW Romanian army with R2 tanks and TACAM T-60's running around, and then last year we took a MW USA OSS army

So Andrew and I will taking a somewhat large force this year which will be mostly made up of very small platoons, so we are not predicting  to do very well as we will be bleeding points all over the battlefield. We both are planning on having more of laugh with this army rather than placing well - hopefully mid pack will suit me.

So will be using Andrews Germans , and as usual will be taking the German Armoured Train as this will be fun to play with and well why not.
Our respective 1/2's of the company are:

  1. Interesting looking force guys, not your typical German set up (CVs)...
    I'll be along with Paul, and out Brits, see you there!

  2. Should be a fun tournament, hopefully we have enough AT and with lots of mobility in the army it suits Andrews and my attacking style. The sheer size of the army will be the problem for most teams I fear, but will be very easy for us to loose points in doing this. So am predicting most of our games will be 4:3 either way.
