I have been a big slacker this year. By this time last year, I had played in several tournaments and had some solid results. This year? Nothing. Nada. Just haven't been able to make it happen. I had a golden opportunity to head to Wolfkrieg and was not given the 1iC green light. Adepticon was EW and I am not a fan. I was planning on going to Little Wars outside Chicago the following week, but real life got in the way.
So I find myself in the middle on May with zippo tournaments. But the tide is turning!
This weekend will be the 2nd Annual Cheesehead Champioship Tournament. Mike came up with this idea last year. Basically, it is open to any FoW player from Wisconsin. We had a good turnout for Year 1 and Year 2 looks to be a lot bigger! It is LW 1,780 and will serve as a good warm up to Historicon.
For all to see, here is my list:
Canadian Infantry (CV)
Market Garden Book
HQ - 1iC and 2iC
Platoon 1 - Full infantry, with Roos plus .50cal
Platoon 2 - Full infantry, with Roos plus .50cal
Platoon 3 - Anti-Tank Platoon of 4 6pdrs plus carriers
Platoon 4 - Canadian Armoured Recce with 2 Sherman V and 2 Fireflies
Platoon 5 - Canadian Armoured Recce with 2 Sherman V and 2 Fireflies
Platoon 6 - Artillery Battery - 4 25pdrs
Solid list. Not 2 ID solid, but solid enough. I want to run the Canadians in a tournament and see the results. Friends have run a list like this (I gave them the idea) to great success on the east coast. We will see how it works in Cheeseland.
Depending on the way the list plays, I will either bring something like it to Historicon or go back to 2 ID. We will see...
Here are some progress pictures from the very large painting queue:
Canadian Shermans, Achilles, Crocs, Roos and 2 ID bazooka team. Now there are three Crocs total, 8 Shermans, a full division of 2 ID and 12 Roos!
