Discussion about everything Flames of War related, including modelling, painting, collecting, fluff, cheese and historical facts!
Perhaps try the Market Garden book? That gives you AT15 fireflies, access to Bofors guns and upgrades your men from CT to CV. Generally, it’s not worth overloading on AA MG’s, one per platoon to discourage enemy aircraft is usually enough. 25pdrs/Sextons might not be a bad shout though, they will take a lot of [...]
list looks ok still to to get and build and paint the army yet .
now working on the Anti-tank Platoon @tm got a few Loyd Carriers done.
think i can ask dave to look @ it again and make it up to 1750 pts
Unfortunately,the Rifle Company list doesn’t allow the addition of Bofors AA guns,which is a pity,( I already have two unbuilt in my collection along with the Morris tractors). Pinning isn’t that much of a problem,not with the ammount of UC’s running about,each platoon can roll 10 dice worth of pinning mg fire. In place of [...]
Nice looking list; as you say it’s very generic but you appear to have most bases covered. A couple of points which apply to most lists; 1) Anti-Tank You only have 2 Fireflies for dealing with heavier armour (the Shermans PIATS and 6pdrs will help with weight of dice, but don’t rely on this help) [...]
Just using the Generic lists from the rulebook,I came up with this list for a 1500pt force,which seems to work quite well for me. HQ + carrier @30pts Rifle platoon @140pts Rifle platoon @140pts 3″mortar platoon(4) @90pts 6pdr platoon+carriers(4) @105pts Carrier platoon(9) @245pts Armoured platoon(3xSherman V+FF) @280pts Armoured Platoon(3xSherman V+FF) @280pts 4×0.5″AA mg’s for Sherman [...]
Ok just got my 1st part of the Breaching Group 1 Sherman V and 3 Sherman Crab and yes i do like the forged in battle stuff you get 3 in a box
and we going to do the 1750 pts not the 1500 pts so can get mor stuff know
I’m thinking about starting a Mid-War British Army from the North Africa book, and I’m wondering if its a good idea to have Matilda’s/Valentine’s as my main tanks, rather than Sherman’s.
On paper, the Valentine’s appear to be better, with the main problem being the gun, but what do you guy’s think?
@frizzenspark, did look at 21 Panzer and may expand into that at present looking to use the most of what I have. Current lists I have to work towards, any feedback very welcome, at to 1750: US Assault company: HQ 4 Boat Sections Naval gunfire – heavy cruiser DD Tank platoon – 1M4 Dozer and 2 [...]
The way it is written leaves it very open, I don’t see a reason why you can’t just chose one at the start of deployment to be the OP for the guns… you don’t pay any more for one or the other.
Hey all, Sorry for going quiet for a few days, family stuff. Thanks for the replies – will pitch towards 1750 then. I have picked up the D-Day book set, all rather cool. Will be sticking with the boat section – like the idea of the Big red one, veterans from Tunisa and Italy storming [...]
