Barbarossa Light Panzer Company (CV)
- 1x HQ Panzer IIIG (155pts)
- 3x Panzer IIIG (460pts)
- 2x 231 8-Rad Armoured Cars (110)
- 1x T34/40 (CT) (260 points)
Yep that's right "Boris the Behemoth", a T34/40 which has been press-ganged into German service.
Front armour 6, side armour 5, AT 8, range 24". What's not to like?
I like to think of him as my "pocket tiger." I expect him to be totally underwhelming but he is similar points to a platoon of 5x panzer IIs so Poochie and I intend to have a competition to see who does the most damage, Boris or the Pee-Wee Panzers.
So my army has shrunk to 7 AFVs (4x panzers, a T34 and 2 armoured cars). At least set up/ deployment shouldn't be a problem!
So a quick drybrush and we are good to go. I've had to order a couple of 231 8-rad armoured cars though.
Boris in all his Russian Green glory.
And the Panzer IIIGs- I had to replace the barrels with short 50mm cannons, gave them all a quick drybrush and we are good to go.
I can't see Poochie and me threatening too many opponents forces but it should be a laugh.
