What A Tanker Campaign

I might be interested, I'd like to try it out first though.

I will try and get a game run, particularly those who haven't played the rules. I can supply all the models, which will be identifiable to each player. Ideally 12 players will be ideal allowing for 2 x 3 vehicle platoons per side. As its likely that some players will not be available Plts would run under strength. I am writing a few campaign specific rules to provide some period flavour. The tank commanders can obtain promotion within the platoon and the plt commander will have some added capability. If the plt commander is killed then that player takes a new crew and starts as No3 in the plt with the No2 becoming the comdr etc.
If your tank is destroyed there will be a chance some members of the crew may survive.
Certain National specific rules will apply ie. until they come under fire the Russian tanks must change a die to move and advance toward the enemy. However the Russians will never start a game out numbered and if they have less players on a given day, they will have extra tanks. If the Germans are out numbered... such is life.
Any suggestions are welcome and I will post a draft campaign note shortly...

Following the fun game last night - can you add me to the list?

Prefer to be Russians - can you provide tanks, as last night?

Thanks

Which week in August is set for the What a Tanker Campaign to start?

Am just finalising the Campaign specific rules. I can supply all tanks however if you have  your own that's fine. It is a winter campaign with Soviets using T34/76 and can upgrade to T34/85, and the German Pzr IVH, Stug IIIG, upgrading to Tiger I.

Dear all
Please see attached for 'What a Tanker' campaign. This is a draft so (polite :)) comment and suggestion welcomed. Any inconsistencies or direct conflict to the rules need to be identified. First game is the 4th Monday of August.

I have tried to give some substance to each character with a national flavour. Where I have given a national twist (soviet must advance etc) I have given a balancing factor (Soviets only need 4 kills to upgrade). Players can print off there Character sheets, with a spare or to. I will also have a few spares.

Each table will be given a results sheet to hand in at the conclusion of the game. Each Plt Comdr will also be handed a scenario sheet with objectives. Each side will determine which Plt fights on which table and revealed to the opponent at the beginning. I will provide a campaign map as each scenario result will play to the next.

Looks good. I'd like to join in on the German side, preferably with a Stug III.

Guess that would make it first Monday in Sept.

However if there is a feeling that this is too many campaigns at the same time I can always delay?

It's fine, we've had 4 campaigns on at the same time loads of times.

Campaign rules look good. Neither Ash nor me mind which side we play on so stick us in wherever you need us to make up numbers.
