List for Historicon

Taking Mike’s suggestion that I go with the USA for the FoW tourney at Historicon, here is my initial list of what I can go with:

HQ – 2x M4 – 140

1st Platoon – 4 x M4 – 275

2nd Platoon – 4 x M4A1(76) – 355

The above is the base of the list and what is already assured to be in the army.

Below are all the options I could do.

Full Battery of M7 Priests (6 guns)- 325

Tank Destroyers (2 sections) – 335

Armoured Rifle Platoon (Full Strength) – 240

3 x M4 (105) – 215

This all totals 1885 points so some of the support needs reworking. The tournament is at 1750 points so I don’t need to trim that much. The list, as it is, is a good all around list, able to deal with armour or infantry effectively. It is really a matter of what I think I will be facing when deciding what to cut.  I could use air or some recon elements to really balance it out against all-comers but that will come at the expense of something else.

Thoughts?

I had hoped to put up some pics of the Shermans as they progress but last evening the time did not present itself. Hopefully tonight.

  1. Dude, I’m so far removed from FOW I don’t even have a legitimate opinion.

  2. nice list mate

    the only thing you may want to think about is maybe losing the 3 x M4 (105) and swapping them out for some Stuarts (they are a nice little support unit and have loads of MGS to take out any infantry you come across)

  3. Maybe. But the list is still 65 points over. I liked the idea of the 105 shermans to deal with dug in infantry, plus the platoon was a little better armoured than the Stuarts.
    I’m thinking of dropping a section of M10’s to make up the points, but I’m curious to see how many Soviet tank forces show up. Indeed, I’m curious to see how many armored forces show up….

    Got to paint first, though.
