Tanksgiving 2010! What Period?

Post by scurrdi on Sun Oct 10, 2010 11:03 pm

Gentlemen and Ladies,

The time has come for Tanksgiving 2010!

For those of who are new, Tanksgiving is an event that Battlefront sponsors that is basically an all out Tank Battle. We play Axis vs. Allies, you bring legal lists of up to 2000 points (as many lists and tanks as you own!). We pair off, and go at it! The event in the past has been a blast to play, at least in my experience.

The question of the poll is, which period do you wish to play this year?

-Early War, where the mighty Panzer III rains supreme?

-Mid War, where medium tanks are most common, with the occasion big cat?

-Late War, where tanks are a plenty and Big Cats are everywhere to be found?


I know most folks have Late War stuff, but I also know that most everyone's stuff can easily be turned into Mid-War with minimal proxies required.

We are currently looking at SUNDAY NOVEMBER 21st as the date for this event, as Joel does not want to do it over Thanksgiving weekend.

Post your thoughts please! All input is great!

What's an IS-3? Isn't it an IS-2? Mid or late. Shermans die just as easily.

IS-3 didn't see service in WWII.

If anything a couple prototypes but it really shouldn't be included in FOW.

Be nice for them to go back to the western front to do the late war books so US can get their better tanks.

They actually have real footage of an M26 Pershing going one on one with Panther in a German city. The Pershing pops it twice with its 90mm gun. You actually see the tank commander in the Panther pull himself from the turret as the Panther brews up. His leg is blown off below the knee. he ended up dying right after from the wound. the combat cameraman is describing the scene as it unfolds. The point was that the Pershing was an excellent tank and could go toe to toe with any German tank. Its graphic.

I saw the stats for it for FoW. It was an old PDF from many many years ago. Front armor 10 and the 90MM was AT13 FP3+.

Pershings and m36 Jacksons

Though only 20 Pershings saw combat use in WWII, I would imagine it being a highly restricted tank in US lists.

Course I would love to see the Super Pershing Tank added even though only one was fielded

You can bring everything you have, but legal lists up until 2k points. After that, you gotta make a second company.

Here's the video. I was mistaken. The Commander missing the leg is a Sherman crewman. His tank was hit by the Panther.

So, we need to make a legal 2000 point tank company?

OR

Bring anything we have available and not worry about lists, but not over 2000 points?

Bring whatever you have, and try to make a tank company list out of it if you can. There the exact limits and such, which I will post soon.
