Top 5 Anti-Tank Guided Weapons
00:01:35 – We lay down the rules.
00:02:15 – No.5! “Old school cool” round apparently. (note – Lee was slightly off, it was the subsequent SA11 that saw combat use and was used by the British and Israelis).
00:06:35 – No.4! Duncan makes a unique choice as Lee and Fez both go with another favourite.
00:10:20 – No.3! Lee and Fez still swing aligned. Duncan is a bit behind the times.
00:12:30 – No.2! Lee continues the turning theme (should have been the AT-6, not 5), Duncan goes European, Eddie goes Irish American. A unique round!
00:17:15 – No.1! Lee engages cruise control, Duncan makes things HOT and Eddie goes multi-purpose.
Loose Lips Sink Ships
00:24:20 – We talk about the latest leaks on the WWIII US as more unit cards and store copies hit the ‘net and wonder what needs to change with how the points work, or player attitude, to get a decent amount of M1A1 on the board.
Faces, Bases, Something, Something
00:47:00 – Eddie has been building, undercoating and stalling going beyond that by doing more building. We also talk contrast paints.
00:53:45 – Lee talks about painting his Desert Storm Warrior IFV and a quick trick for painting desert tracks.
00:57:00 – Duncan talks about painting his Italain BeutePanzerkompanie and supporting Hermann Göring Pioneer platoon
An Officer Answers
01:02:20 – “An Officer Answers” regular William White asks “Do you think the 4.2” mortars are a must take for LW British? 3+ 88 PAK front AT Gun killing Firepower for 9 points.”
01:06:15 – He then continues with “What do you think of using the Polish CC with the Sherman Armoured formation and taking 8 fearless Stuart’s (along with the HQ and Compulsory Sherman Platoon), is it worth the points to have these zipping around spraying 5 MG dice and remounting, last standing, and counterattacking on a 3+?”
01:10:00 – Ollie SP asks “Team Yankee – Do I start a USMC army or wait for the new book?”
01:11:45 – Steven Breughe asks “Midwar Italians: Lancia’s or 88s? Semoventes or M14/41s?”
01:14:45 – Scott Atchison asks “The German Pak Front card is very popular. What is your technique to counter Pak 43s in Pak Front?”
01:18:00 – Vincent Jfm asks “The Breakthrough Assault Plays facebook page is a great idea. Since you guys play other games, does any one of you plays Blood Red Skies? If yes, what do you think about it (I personally love that game, it became my second favourite game after FoW)?”
If you want to check out our non-Battlefront games goings on then head to “Breakthrough Assault Plays”.
01:23:00 – Rob J Webb asks “Are you excited about the new blue number decals they mentioned coming out for the SS in last week’s twitch? I’m thinking I’ll need to paint some more tanks just to put them on!”
01:25:45 – Joe Wright asks “How do you think the shift to high armor/ penetration weapons will affect Team Yankee?”
01:28:00 – Mike Everest came in
with a late PM asking “Team Yankee is set
during the 80s, and since the single greatest medium for explaining the Cold
War is professional wrestling, which 1980s professional wrestlers best and most
accurately summarize your Team Yankee armies.
For example your Warsaw Pact may be Ivan Putsky the Polish Hammer. This is short notice, but I expect results!”
Shoot and Scoot (and hidden track)
01:32:25 – It’s time to pull a dice from our big of Dice of War dice and see if we can Shoot and Scoot.
