Hello All And welcome to my first update on my next project, Late War Hungarians.
The story of this army will sound familiar to must war gamers out there! I got Grey Wolf for Christmas so I could update my Finnish army from Mid War to Late War. Being a lover of the game I read the book from the first page as I was interested in all the list to see if I could spot so of the Version 3 rules changes from the book. I resisted all the German lists (even the train!) and I thought that after a quick flick over the Hungarians I’ll get to my Fins. BUT something struck me about two of the Hungarians lists, the Harckocsizo Szazad (Armoured Company) and the Rohamagyus Uteg (Assault Gun Company). The more I look at the list the move I found nice little support units and fun little combos (not to mention cheap Tigers). Before I knew it I was using my Christmas money to buy my first 1750pts Harckocsizo Szazad Company with plans on turning half of it into a Rohamagyus Uteg company in the months to follow. Also in the future I will pick up an Infantry Company so I can make all the lists out of Grey Wolf.
My first 1750pts is:-
Ervin Tarczay in a Tiger – 270pts
Combat Platoons –
3 Tigers – 585pts
3 Tigers – 585pts
Support Platoons –
3 Zrinyi II – 225pts
3 150cm 43M Rockets – 85pts
Possible not the most balanced list but a fun list and one I can hopefully paint an a good speed.
|The 1750pts List as above, so so small!|
|I love these little Assault Guns! They do look a little bit
funny but in a nice way and with quite good stats
including Breakthrough Gun they seem a really good option.
|No matter with list I do I can never seem to get away from
Nebs! I made these from the German Nebs and replaced almost
all the crew who were not holding rockets with Hungarian
Artillery crew from the Hungarian Artillery special order set.
Now my first test model of sorts. I wanted to try out the Green on something before I started to paint the tanks, so I picked up Barkmann set (I have plans for Barkmann later) and painted up is workshop as a Hungarian Objective.
|It still needs flock and grass but I haven’t quite decided how
I’m going to base it yet.
Well that’s it for now. I hope to have the first set of tanks painted by the weekend, so when they are done I’ll post them up on here.
Thanks for looking Ben
