I could kick off with my Churchills, but when I costed them, they look like this.

HQ - Churchill VII & VI
Platoon - 3 Churchill VI
Platoon - 2 rifle squads
590 points

That would be an interesting game vs the 7thAD... Your armour would probably carry the day...

Indeed, but I don't have any figures so will need to borrow 8 tanks and use model rep... Would you be able to help out?

I have 11 T26s sat waiting for some early war rules. Will 8 of those do?

I thouroghly enjoyed the game. My biggest lesson from our blue on blue training exercise was to pick on platoons that matter for company moral. I also learnt that passing firepower tests is critical to winning (I must have failed four or five 3+ firepower rolls).

Fast tanks are very fast! If I'd realised just how fast, doubt I would have double timed my infantry. Not that they were going to do much more than die at you.

Infantry in the open certainly don't like it up 'em (30 dice of MG fire that is).
