Back of Beyond Campaign Game Three
Colin's force is quite powerful and is well equipped for desert terrain, which is what we'll be fighting over as a change from the usual gobi. The set up calls for a ridge or two of dunes along the table centre line, so his half tracks will have a distinct advantage over my wheeled armoured cars. On the plus side, my Garford Putilov should outgun his armoured vehicles and my infantry will match up well against his too.
Here's my 800 point force, which I've tweaked from last time to add a few extra bits:
One Garford Putilov armoured car, 1 x FG (T), 1 x MG (T), 2 x MG (SS) = 110 points
One improvised armoured car with MG @ 60 = 60 points
Two chocolate teapot un-armoured cars with MG @ 50 = 100 points
One unit of eight Wildcatters/Roustabouts (T5/M5), marksmen with bombs, including two Lewis gunners @ (14 x 6 = 84) + (2 x 22 = 44) = 128 points
One unit of fourteen White Russian mercenaries (T4/M4), with bombs @ 8 points = 112 points.
Two Maxim Machine Guns (T4/M5) @ 72 points = 144 points
One DH2 Aircraft = 150 points
Total = 804 points
It's not quite everything plus the kitchen sink but it's getting there. I have a unit of labourers to paint up, having added a few extra Foundry Chinese pirate figures to round them off to the maximum eighteen but, as they haven't been painted up yet, I'll have to rely on what I've already got.
It should be an interesting game whatever the outcome may be!
