Hi again, I’m here again.
I know this has been out for a while and that Ben also did a review of
the US cavalry box, but I still feel it’s good to look over these boxes
So what do you get for your money?
Well you have enough for the core of any Cromwell force (except rats in Normandy – you’re missing a firefly!)
You also get some decent support – M10’s and Stuart’s.
and assuming a straight swap of the firefly for a challenger. So with 2
boxes, 4 M10’s and three Stuart’s it costs you about £122 – so you
basically get the objectives, decals, dice and tokens for free which is
pretty sweet if you ask me!
Now how am I going to paint this, well I prefer to paint in chunks, for
this lot I’ll likely do it a platoon at a time – probably throwing the
objectives and HQ cromwells as a separate block, so 5 chunks of painting.
As for a list well I’m working on that currently so keep you’re eyes peeled for that post. But I’m fairly certain all the Cromwells, and Stuarts (and possibly the M10’s) will be in the list, and that’s what I think makes all these boxes useful, the fact you can make a decent list out of them, and they’re not 3 good units and one duff one.
So all in all I’m giving this box 9 ‘God save the king’s’ out of 10 – it’s only failing in my eyes is that with all the tokens and dice they could do with a tin!
Till next time
