Breakthrough Assault Painting Contest

An Officer’s Answers
00:51:00 – Timothy Anderson asks “Why did the Brits stop painting camo in normandy. Look at the greys tanks in Italy, then they go to Normandy and don’t bother, even though apparently the paint was available?”
00:54:15 – Vincent Jfm asks “How many AT 14 do you consider to be the absolute minimum when building à british list? Can the Typhoon be a good alternative?”
00:56:10 – Geoffery Hill asks “Could you discuss tactics for using transport attachments for mechanized infantry. The vehicles seem to offer a tremendous amount of benefits as a transport attachment.”
01:05:40 – Tony Hellard asks “When producing an army list, what is your first criteria that you look for?”
01:09:50 – Chris Bo asks “From which “Men-only“ nightclub did you steal that poster?”
01:10:40 – Luke Daley asks “Do you think Swedes in TY will be a good army if they’re ever done by BF? I personally think they will be quite defensive but will lack quality in certain areas (lack of AA, poor choice in artillery, no dedicated attack helicopters). Mediocre infantry and nice sneaky-but-vulnerable tanks.”
01:13:00 – William White asks “Kangaroos, yes or no?”
Military Operation or…
01:16:00 – Duncan brings us another round of “Military Operation or…” as he plays ringmaster and pits Eddie vs Lee in a fight to the
death mildly inconvenienced. Sadly Lee’s murky’s past lends him an advantage…
Shoot and Scoot
01:28:00 – Its time to work out our skill level and aim to shoot and scoot! Plus hidden track!
