At the AGM I undertook to run a WW2 campaign this year. Given the interest that the new Lardies ‘What a Tanker’, rules appear to have generated at the club, I propose to run a simple campaign, pretty much inline with the rules.

It wont be necessary for every player to play every game. The more often you play the more chance to progress, but also more opportunity to be knocked out and your crew killed. Probably start with Panzer IV and T34/76, with the possibility to upgrade to Tiger I and T34/85.

If members can indicate if they are interested I will liaise with the committee to identify an appropriate timetable. Gary

As I said tonight, I'm potentially interested but I'd like to try the game out first before committing.

So the plan will be to run a What a Tanker campaign set in March 1943 at the 3rd Battle of Kharkov. Mainly this is because I’m all keen on winter at the moment and this is a winter campaign. Players interested so far. Further places available as people wont be expected to fight every battle. Campaign start 1st August.

Soviet Guards Tank Platoon.  (T34/76)
Plt Comdr - Grahame
2 I/C - Mike
Tank Comdr - Chris
Tank Comdr - Rob

2nd Panzer Kompanie LAH. (Pzr IV H)
231 - Gary
232 - Andy Miller
233 - Shawn
234 - Andy Mellor

I will post some campaign suggestions to add flavour shortly.

Ash and I are interested but we would probably need to borrow models. Do you have any spares?
