SO, I made an army finally

Post by Sniperfex » Fri Mar 14, 2014 6:44 am

I've played Flames on numerous occasions at my local gaming club, but due to time and lack of funds I've never really ever had the chance to play it properly, let alone fund an army. All I purchased was a single Sherman Platoon with the Firefly and they have done nothing but sit on my shelf for two years.



ANYWAY
List

British Armoured Squadron, completed with the "Fortress Europe" book.

(I will post the unit and then the composition of said unit)

Sherman Command Team
2 Shermans
135 POINTS

Combat Platoon I
3 Shermans
1 Firefly
280 POINTS

Combat Platoon II
3 Shermans
1 Firefly
280 POINTS

Combat Platoon III
3 Shermans
1 Firefly
280 POINTS

Armoured Platoon
3 Firefly's
(these are the Firefly's from the Combat Platoons, because I can do that)

Armoured Platoon (DIVISIONAL SUPPORT)
2 M10 Wolverines with the M10c 17pdr
130 POINTS

Field Battery, Royal Artillery (DIVISIONAL SUPPORT)
1 Gun Troop
4 25 pdr guns
Observer Sherman
175 POINTS

Recce Patrol (WEAPONS PLATOON)
4 Honey Stuarts
150 POINTS

Field Platoon, Royal Engineers (DIVISIONAL SUPPORT)
Command Team
2 Field Squads
70 POINTS

1,500 points exactly.

Being an almost all Tank army, I'd almost always be attacking.
Shermans are the all rounders
Firefly's and Wolverines for Anti-tank
Artillery for Support
Recce Platoon to remove "dug in" counters from Infantry (so my tanks can hit them over 16 inches)
and the Infantry for holding any objective I have in my deployment (if I had any)

There are no King Tigers at our group (thank heavens). So I'd say this is an all rounded list.

Whadda you guys think? Also, the 3 Shermans and Firefly I currently have, have loads of stowage on them, I'm aware if I go the cheaper option for Shermans they'll be in plastic with less stowage on them. Would you recommend leaving them as and using my current tanks as the Commander of each platoon, or say "sod it" and buy stowage packs to make them look similar to my current ones?
