Yeah but my army cant take the 17 pdr's... or atleast cant find it in my forces of war army list.

Is there a model i can buy that represents it or do i just have to model accordingly?

No an armoured unit is unable to take 17 pounders anti-tank guns - would not be part of the TO&E; they can usually take them as SP (self propelled) options. However, PBI companies can take them. I thought you had an infantry company that you were working on as well?

An infantry army or just a box of figs to build? I do not plan on having any other armies/lists, just this one Canadian list.

But if you mean the figs i'm building then yes i finished building the infantry for that list last night.

Soooo if anyone needs any 17 pdr's they're all yours lol

**this wasn't meant to sound so final I just mean im going to master the game then the list!

Thought you had bought an entire box of infantry = 3 platoons?

I do have a whole box. I was wondering why it came with so many bases / figs i thought i was just getting one platoon. But i only built my one platoon i'm using then i threw the rest in the box and threw it in the spruce pile. Ha i was debating a list with ONLY 2 units of tanks and then 2 units of infantry in Ram Kangaroo's just move fast and get there, that viable?

Pretty much everything is viable, it just depends on what you want.

Problem is i think i'm trying to mimic my 40k Dark Angels list, with the multiple troop transports with speed to get my troops where i need them to be to hold objectives.

Mmk well before i order anything else i'm gonna check out the Den on Saturday while i'm there. Get some Ram Kangaroo's if they got em. 6 of em! Load up all the troops and blaze forward. Think i'm just going to skip artillery for now, keep things simple.

I'm almost certain that you will be disappointed with the selection at the Den. They have a lot of stuff but nothing that anyone actually wants.

Welp that is unfortunate ... I noticed they had alot of stuff and it seemed to be 25 % off.

Not gonna lie couple saturday's ago when i was there Don said oh if u want FoW stuff nows the time to get it so i literally walked up to the first pile and right on top was my British Infantrymen box haha. DONE

Well thanks for the heads up Nathan, i'll still check em out while i'm there on saturday. looking for the Universal Carriers, Ram Kangaroos and i believe that is it... Oh a command HQ Sherman if there is such a thing.

There is no specific model for your command Sherman. Its not like they were driving around in a solid gold tank or anything or had a big flag saying "THE BOSS" flying from the antenna. Just put 2 guys with their heads sticking out of the turret and call it a day. You just need to keep track of which model is your 1ic and which is your 2ic (if you have one).

If you really want something that stands out you could paint a little thing gold on your 1ic and silver on your 2ic, that's what I did on my Tetrarch tanks.

Ah... ic... i just swore when i had my Russian army they had command tanks... dude with a big flag sticking out the top or something... Maybe those were just special characters.

Not gonna lie now i really want to paint a tank GOLD and put a giant "The Boss" flag on it... yess... Golden Shermans... I'm liking this.

Whats 1ic and 2ic again?

Or drop the infantry to 4 Rifle Platoons each and the HQ to 2 again and bump the tank units back up a Sherman each?

The 2 Sherman/1 firefly tank platoons are small and will die quickly.  Especially because you have no artillery support to protect them with smoke and/or barrages.  And once/if you get within assault range you have no template shooting to pin down your assault targets so return fire is most likely going to stop your assaults before they happen.  Playing British without artillery is basically playing the game on hard mode.

Also, if you drop the 3rd Sherman in the hq your 1ic and 2ic can roll with your other tank platoons. If you keep it your 2ic has to stick with that extra Sherman as a platoon of 2.

First off, everytime i get a new game i immediately change it to Hard Mode. Only way to play.

Secondly ... do i really need Artillery? UGH why wasnt i told ?! Ugh its just there are to many 25 pdr options on the website so i didnt know what to buy so i gave up and didnt order any... should have just ordered land mattresses, are those enough "artillery" ?

* changed the list btw hows that now?

If your wanting 25 pounders for Late war:



BBX09 Royal Artillery Battery(Has resin sculpted bases so more expensive)

BR573 25 pdr gun(2x guns per blister)
BR710 Artillery HQ ( Late War)

Note Plastic soldier company has recently released a 25 pounder set which is substantially cheaper: It looks like different trucks and/or crew between them.

These are you IC & 2IC
The 1IC grants bonus motivation/morale roll if he is in command distance and a company morale check if you get below half
The 2IC a company morale check if you get below half and have lost your 1IC or he is bailed out

No - you don't need artillery.
Why do you want artillery? For pins and smoke. Five (6 for Japanese / 10 for Soviet) hits pin infantry or 1 arty hit (2 for Japanese) cutting their defensive fire in half or adding a +1 to hit = very important if/when you want to assault. Smoke blocks line of sight and add a +1 to your troops charging in to assault or +2 within 16" of enemy smoked troops and completely obscuring troops past that.

Yes, but that is if you lose your platoon command team another team within command distance takes over the platoon. Otherwise your platoon/troop cannot move.

Might as well give it a go. Play a few games against artillery and you will wish you had some of your own.
