Parramatta area, if you look on Facebook for Wargamerozs 20mm Ramblings and ask to join you will see my table, I have most if not all the tanks but need to download the rules first

I'm based in Sutho Shire (about 10 minutes walk from the MOAB venue), and play at Sutherland Shire Gamers every Friday night. I have 28mm western front toys for us to use, and the club has oodles of terrain. We're going through a bit of a Chain of Command/ What A Tanker! explosion at the moment, so if you're more than welcome to come down & join in the fun on any given Friday.

One of the blokes who played What A Tanker! at MOAB two weeks ago does live in the greater west (so he's probably far easier for you to link up with), and I've messaged him about this thread.

Our game absolutely amazing. This was my first game. I found the rules easy to understand, but all players were forced to make difficult tactical decisions, which is exactly what a good set of rules should do.

We played in 28mm with 2 Panthers, one STUG, 2 Cromwells, 1 Sherman, 1 Achilles TD.

The game was a stunning victory for the Germans with all the Allied Tanks being destroyed. Only one Panther was damaged.

The Sherman survived 3 hits from a Panther and was missed many times; it was the last tank destroyed being rammed by the STUG in an act of desperation.

The game was played in a great spirit with participants wanting to attack.

We're going to play our next game in 15mm as we have many 15mm tanks.

I'm looking forward to our next game.

Regards
Darren
