New player help with weapon stats etched

Post by m1kel »

Hi,
Just bought the new version 3 rules and love they but haven't played yet. When looking at likely setups I'm now realise the weapon stats for armour units specifically but not exclusively are not exhaustive. So do I need to buy one of the supplements to give me the full picture and allow a wider selection of possible setups and OOB?
Initial interest may be war in the east if that's important although Normandy landings are also important.
Thanks,
Mike

The main rules have a rather limited set of oob's & stats mostly for Normandy though some of the vehicles where used else where.

is the eastern front expansion version 3 & is quite comprehensive & Richard has a Weston front equivalent in the works.

However the Version 2 books are still usable with the conversion list on the Lard island news. I would also add that Visbellica's stuff has been updated to version 3 & is very good indeed.

The western front army lists are in Battle for Liberation which was actually released well before Vpered na Berlin 8-) .

Cheers,

Greetings

Rob Avery should know as I think he's redone the Vyazma or Bust supplement which should have 38(t)s?

Sorry Ed, no 38(t)s in either Vyazma or Calais.

Good to see you at Warfare today BTW

Cheers

You can tank armour value and speed from the Marder III so 4 & average and weapon strike of 5 for a 3.7cm gun.

It should be pretty much the same as a Panzer IIIC (which I think does appear in the Calais book) - 37mm gun and thin-ish armour.

Ok armor 4 strike 5 average speed.
Strange they are not in the Berlin supplement.
