Today, we did 2 WaT games at the club and had a lot of fun!
I have done a report on one of the games, which I hope you can enjoy, at this link

You know Herky, you need to stop being such an expert at explosions.

I do enjoy your AARs however, keep it up!

Couple years ago thought to get a few tanks and play What a Tanker, more in a Girls und Panzer game but mostly a good reason to get different models. But alas, the urge faded.

Thanks for commenting guys!

@14Bore: I hope you regain your Armoured mojo and enjoy this game!

Next time make sure the Jerries get the beat down they deserve. I really enjoy the narratives your solo system produces in your games, the AI does seem to favor targeting you more often than not though. If you have the vehicles North Africa would be a great place to stage some battles. Does the club provide your terrain or is that something the players have to bring with them? One last question, do you think you could get away with running a full platoon vs platoon in a reasonable amount of time?

Hi Bashy! – We only do desert with Colonials and Arab/Israeli What a tanker, oh and Star Wars skirmishing of course.
Although our club has some terrain, its really my pal Lawrence and myself who provide the terrain for our games.
I assume the platoon v platoon question is about WaT? if so, I think we are using about a platoon of tanks. I have played a game with 6 tanks a side, but it really stretches the system in that the non active players have a lot of down time!
