Hi, all it's been a while since I've been by, I'm after some suggestions on this list from Desperate Measures as I've a V3 game coming up. Yes, a V3 game, V4 will happen down here at some point, I just don't know when.

Hero Tankovy Brigada HQ (Red Army) p.39
1 T-34/85 obr 1944

Combat Companies
Hero Tankovy Company (Red Army) p.39
4 T-34/85 obr 1944

Hero Tankovy Company (Red Army) p.39

Hero Tankovy Company (Red Army) p.39
4 T-34 obr 1942 with Cupola

Support Companies
Hero Medium Assault Gun Company (Red Army) p.51
3 SU-85M

Hero Spetsnaz Platoon p.53
Fearless Veteran
Cmd SMG team with Captured Sd Kfz 250 half-track
SMG squad with Captured Sd Kfz 251 half-track

Hero Motorised Artillery Battalion (Red Army) p.49
1 Cmd Rifle team
1 Staff team
4 76mm ZIS-3 field gun
4 M2 or M3 half-tracks
1 M2 or M3 half-tracks with .50 cal AA MG

The ZIS-3s are there more for their direct fire mode, as I don't expect to use them as arty, but if I went for the ZIS-3 tank destruction company, there'd no doubt be a time when I'd want some indirect fire support.
Why, Desperate Measures? Hen and Chicks. Where's the infantry? Still, on the painting table. The Artillery Battalion is in the same boat, but there's less of it to assemble and paint.

My other option is change countries & run 1500 points of German armour, that's probably 6 Tiger 1Es.

If those are the minis you have, try it... but you its a very brittle force and you will miss proper arty and infantry units.

Soviet tanks -apart from a Spetsnaz squad, a BA-10 armoured car platoon & a staff team- are pretty much the only FoW minis I have that are fully assembled & painted. Of cause that's mainly T-34s with the rest being a minimum squad each of SU-85, SU-85M, SU-100 & ISU-122/155.

I prefer the second, more compact, option.

I helped a new player come up with a list almost exactly like that, except with SU-100s instead of ISU-122s (because that's what I have).

It's pretty fun! No world beater, but it's pretty thematic and it's a relief to some people to not have to deal with H&C, especially to newer players. It does get sort of hard to take advantage of the better skill of the Hero units, because you've taken too many losses to very effective in an assault just getting across the board (if only they had Smoke...).
