Doing my usual review of the latest blog/web posts in my Stumpy Reading list and came across to particularly good links this morning.
Thanks to Glen for an enjoyable game yesterday and for tips on a couple of good sources of GW and alternatives to GW products.

If you check out the comments on my last post about this topic you’ll see that Les has been continuing to offer me some solid advice which I am most grateful for, and definately going to listen to. Consequently, I am looking at 3 different lists for my upcoming 2v2 Tournament in July. Ill run all three past my playing partner tonight at the club, along with Les’s other points and see what we come up with. My previous idea of battlegroup my Paks is a no goer as I had forgotten the rules stated you can only Kampfgruppe Combat or Weapons Platoons not support Platoons. So we are now down to the following list idea. Fallschirmjager v3 CHQ – 2xPF, 2xMortar,1xPanzershrek, 175 FJ Platoon – PF, 3 Squads, 265 FJ Platoon – PF, 3 Squads, 265 FJ AT Platoon – 4 x Pak 40, 245 FJ Mortar Platoon – 2 sections, 140 or FJ AT Platoon – 2 x Pak 40, 135 & Heer AT Platoon – 2 x Pak 40 instead of the single FJ Platoon Kampfgruppe 1 Mortar Section with 2IC and then combat attach 1 HQ Mortar to each of the two Mortar Platoons thus created. I think this is right? Kampfgruppe then combat attach, or do you combat attach and then Kampfgruppe????
OK we had our first practice game the other night and our combined Tiger/FJ company worked OK but we didnt have enough Platoons on the ground to offer any kind of flexibility particularly against large Soviet reinforcement Platoons of T34′s. Found also that once 1 of my FJ Platoons got pinned I had no real combat power left to do anything offensive. So have modified list and am working from Hells Highway now using the 3rd FJ Division Worked up the following Company HQ – 2xPF/SMG, 2xPanzershrek, 3xMortars – 185 FJ Platoon – PF/SMG, 3 Squads – 200 FJ Platoon – PF/SMG, 3 Squads – 200 FJ Pioneers – 2 Squads, Supply Truck – 200 FJ Artillery – 3 x 10.5cm FH18 – 150 Ersatz Platoon – 3 SdKfz 250 – 85 Luftwaffe AA Platoon – 1 x 88mm, 2 x 2cm Flak 38 – 95 TOTAL 1115 (more than 1100 but are allowed to borrow up to 200pts from our teammates and he has about 20 spare) The Ersatz Platoon comes with 3 half-tracks (need to buy them) 2 with 2cm Flak 38 which have AT5 FP5 ROF3 so not bad. Could get standard FJ AA Platoon for 75pts with 3 Flak 38s. Take one of these and battlegroup it with 2IC and 2 Flak 38s from Luftwaffe Platoon and thats a pretty mobile HMG substitute. This gives us stronger artillery from last week – more infantry on the ground, ability to put down 3 barbed wire entanglements or 1 minefield in defensive scenarions, and some additional AT & anti-infantry power.
Providing I havent missed out on a place Ive decided to take High Elves to Runefang IV primarily as I think they will be more competitive given the tournaments format. Basically it will follow a Mighty Empires format based around teams of 3 using the various scenarios in the army book. All lists are subject to the following restrictions: – 30% core minimum – No double specials – No double rares – No unit to cost more than 350pts including command, upgrades and magic My list will be Archmage Level 4 – Silver Wand, Talisman of Preservation, Folraiths Robe, Lore of Shadow BSB (on foot) – Armour of Caledor, GW, Guardian Phoenix Spears x33 – Full command, Banner of Eternal Flame Archers x14 – Musician Archers x10 – Musician Swordmasters x18 – Full Command, Ironcurse Icon White Lions x18 – Full Command, Banner of Sorcery Dragon Princes x5 – Musician Great Eagle TOTAL 1,999pts Not sure if Archmage will be legal as he comes in at 360pts as I interpreted the comp rules to mean that only “units” not “units and individual models” could not cost more than 350pts. If it is units, then Ill just drop the Silver Wand and add another model to my Spear unit
