Canadadians or Finnish ?

Post by Frantic on Tue Apr 27, 2010 2:21 pm

So, I'm gonna build an army. I already got lots of 15mm tanks so all I need to get started is an infantry company box with and a couple mortars/machine guns.

So, I'm trying to decide between building a Canadian or Finnish army.

With the Finns I can play Early - Late war vs. Russia and Late war vs. Germany.
With the Canadians I can play Middle - Late war vs. Italians and Germans.(I think)

The main thing I want to know is which will give me a broader range of opponents locally? Thanks Smile

It doesn't matter who your opponent is, the game is broad on what you are allowed to play unlike many historicals which force accurate pairings. As long as both players are playing the same era (early, mid, or late) is all that matters.

Late war is the most common generally if you want to have best option for most opponents. No on plays early since they haven't put out rules for early.

Finland as of now can field mid and late. There are Late war PDF's for download. Most of their equipment is good for both periods. Nobody fields the Finnish either,so you can be unique. When early is released there will be PDF's for them. Hell the fought the Winter war against Russia before WW2 started. Oh yeah most of their troops are rated fearless Veteran,so they are tough as hell.

Quite a few of us have midwar armies. I have Italians(Bersaglieri)Stephan has Italian Paratroopers,Hurricane(Eric) has Brits,Don has Russians and Germans,Dave has Brits. US Para's convert well back to midwar as do most american armies,so I have them as well as does Will. Also Rufus is looking at a Midwar force.

I can just about squeeze in Mid War with my Brits as well, though I don't get all the nice toys (Typhoons, M10's, Firefly Shermans and Priests) until Late War

Is this the US definition of when the war started (December 1941)? Winter War was three months after the invasion of Poland

I can do a mid war with my germans though it would be like a 4 tank only army. I can't make a mid war army in any other way with what I got Very Happy

November 1939. WW2 started Sept 1939. I meant preGerman(pre-June 22,1941) invasion of Soviet Union.

Well I ordered my Finnish Company from resistant roosters. Not a bad deal. $56 shipped. I'm getting an HQ section with 2 snipers, 2 infantry platoons, a machine gun platoon, and a mortar platoon. And I've got 3 StuG Gs and 3 T34/76s from AAM already. I was gonna go with battlefront infantry so I could get it from Joel but all their Finnish stuff is in blisters only... building an army out of blisters is a little ridiculous.

Each Finnish blister is a complete platoon from what I remember, it really is not a bad deal at all.

Also the resistant roosters figs from what I understood did not give you enough figs to make full FOW sized platoons.

Ya, but its still pricey. It would have been about $72 If I would have gone with battlefront stuff. I double checked and the RR stuff does come with enough figures. Apparently they are now making all their lines compatible with FoW.

That's good. It's true though that despite the love people toss at Battlefront, they are kind of expensive as many manufacturers produce figs much cheaper, just as good quality, 15mm, and are full pewter often which costs more than resin. They also price things kind of oddly where a miniature much smaller is sold for the same price as a fig almost twice it's size.

Though overall battlefront is not that bad.

I think their prices are pretty fair actually as long as your are buying boxes to build your army and then a blister here and there to supplement. When I start building up my canadians I'm going to buy those from battlefront.

They got good box sets especially many of the infantry sets with multiple platoons and parts, it's just some of their blister prices are kinda crappy in comparison. Compared to the prices of other historical manufacturers they are one of the most expensive though, but you also get the benefit of convenience of how widely available the product line is, and they offer one of the most diverse range of WWII figs on the market.

In the far future Im gonna build a Mid-Late war Hungarian force. I think Canadians are Confident trained...arent they? I prefer quality over quantity. Early war Im going Viva La France. Im gonna end the war in 1939,... Hun bastards.There wont be a Holocaust, just women with hairy armpits and bad hygiene,Wine and cheese. Im gonna put all Nazi party members in prisons(Devils Island) in French Guiana to rot with Papillon.
