Just catching up on this thread - given that my 11 year old has progressed from Airfix plane kits to various tanks, this couldn't come at a better time!

I’m really looking forward to seeing these rules. A perfect excuse to add some armour to my soviet shopping list.

Not only that, but his humour will fit in perfectly here, as well!

Wow! What a discussion...as mentioned already, I too learned a few things. My interests in WWII didn't start until about 3 years ago, when I took the dive into WWII and CoC. I can now honestly I.D. those "Hollywood" tanks in the many movies which used them. But, this game is something I've been waiting for a long time. CoC gives us a taste of the tank aspect, but this seems to really dive into it. As a modeler before a gamer, I can say I have quite a collection of 1:48 of armor and vehicles for the period. Looking forward to the pre-order.

Hi, I am wondering what I should be working on building while I wait for the rules to come out? I would like to play battles that are on the Eastern Front. Probably starting in 1941. I have a platoon of Panzer III G, I have a Platoon of Panzer IV's, and a platoon of PZ-38T's. For the Russian side I have T-34/76's but what else should I work on? Suggestions please.
Thanks!

T-26 and BT-7's you will need 6-10 for each German tank and rate them green 😁

KV series could be some fun for the Russian player, maybe not so much for opposing Germans. Same goes for the JS series.

I wonder how the rules would handle a T28?

I would think T-28 is just like a slow light Howitzer tank - the MG's would have little effect in a tank game. Now a T-35 might be a bit different - luckily they have paper thin armour.

Without the historical tools of 100 and 150 mm guns, 88mm flak or Stukas any of the KV series would be hard (impossible?) for a German 1941 tank.
Perhaps the rules will allow for shooting the tracks or gun barrels off? :lol:

T-28 isn't slow... ;) T-35 is likewise not slow.
They might not get far before breaking their transmissions though!
