Clash of Regions


So, we're going to have a little tournament deciding the area domination of Finland in a week. The tournament will be played with 1250 points armies and the match maker is set for 1. PKS (pääkaupunkiseutu = Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa) vs. Rest of Finland. 2. Red vs. Blue and 3. All the rest possible scenarios.

Here I'm going to take a look at the possible list options I have created so far for this tournament.

First list is from the Desperate Measures book, Hero Medium Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment:

HQ
T-34/85 obr 1944
Combat
3* SU-85M
3* SU-85M
3* SU-100
Support
2* IS-2 obr 1943 with .50 cal AA MG & Tank Escort

4 Platoons, 1250 points

This list is a bit bleak as it has no template weapons, no AA except 2 AA MGs, no infantry and no recce. This list can work only against tank companies as I can sit back and shoot everything into oblivion.

Second list is again from Desperate Measures, Medium Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment:

HQ
T-34/85 obr 1944 & Tank Escort
Combat
4* SU-85M & Tank Escorts
3* SU-85M
3* SU-100
Weapons
Assault Gun Recconaissance Platoon ( 1 cmd rifle/MG, 8 rifle/MG)
Support
Limited IL-2

4 Platoons, 1245 points

Compared to the list on top, this has more. It has recce and template in a form of IL-2. It can also handle enemy aircrafts. And with this list I can even assault infantry with the 4 SU-85Ms with tank escorts, throw in the HQ and I have 5 tanks assaulting, hopefully.

Third list has it all and it's from Panzers to the Meuse:

HQ
2* Pz IV J
Bergepanther
Combat
4* Pz IV J
Gepanzerte Aufklärungs Platoon ( 1 cmd faust/MG, 6 faust/MG, 1 tank-hunter team)

Weapons
3* Wirbelwind
Support
2* Sd Kfz 234/2
2* Sd Kfz 231
Rocket Launcher Battery (3* 15cm NW41)

6 Platoons, 1250 points

Heres some tanks, infantry, recce, AA and template. It has speed but it may still fight in defence. And it has Spearhead Deployment and Must Always Attacks.

Forth list is too from Panzers to the Meuse but it has more tanks and bigger guns:

HQ
2* Pz IV J
Bergepanther
Combat
4* Pz IV J
3* Panther G
Weapons
3* Wirbelwind
Support
2* Sd Kfz 234/1

4 Platoons, 1250 points

Some heavier tanks with medium tanks, AA and recce. It lacks templates and infantry but this list is meant to assault straight away. Though it lacks both special rules of the previous list, it can still move really fast and hit hard.

There are some other options too that I have in store but I'm not yet sure if I want to use them. I'm going to have a test game today with a friend of mine and we'll see after that which list I may be using.

So stay tuned for news on how it all went.
