First up is my army for Valleycon- and after spending such a long time thinking I would be playing a German Kradschutzen company, a lack of motorbikes means that that plan went out the window! So, I was too short of panzers to run a proper company, and I have no inspiration to play a German Infantry company (they are boring, and I have played them before!). So, I am going with British instead!
I am using the Early War powerhouse that is the Valentine Tank!
So to support them, I am going to bring some NZ Infantry. The list looks like this...
HQ-2 Valentine II
Tank Platoon- 3 Valentine II
Infantry Platoon- Full Strength, Sticky Bombs
Carrier Platoon- 2 Patrols
Field Artillery Battery- 4 25pdr guns
And the army looks like this....
|Boy does this look like a tournament ready army....|
So.. there is plenty of painting that needs to be done! The valentines have a base coat of dark sand on them, but that needs a few more coats before it looks anywhere near right! The artillery need to be put onto new bases (I don't like the ones they are on now)- the carriers need a repaint..... And so on.
So that is project 1, this is project 2.
|Achilles v Hector|
Now there isn't a battleboard for them yet, Jamie is still writing it! But the overall plan for the Myrmidon list is that they will have no Levy. None. So the warband then is going to be Hoplites and better Hoplites! Which is pretty damn cool I think!
|The great Hoplite race of 2012- This was a real olympic event by the way....|
Achilles and an extra Warlord (plus another in the works)
8 Elite Hoplites
And that's it! A 5 point army! We are currently working out what to have Achilles as- probably a "named hero", meaning he is an extra point.
|Generic Achaean Warlord (name to be determined) and Achilles himself!|
But more on all of this on the future, I am thinking this will be pretty cool!
As for the Trojans, you are going to have to wait for Jas to update his blog......
