Bolt Action Railspilitters Ready to Go!



I've decided to draw a line under the Bolt Action Yanks for the moment, having originally intended to finish off a 57mm AT gun and crew together with some extra infantry. I just haven't had the time this last week, so they'll have to wait until later, when I have a spare weekend or two.

So, the Late War reinforced US regular infantry platoon is now pretty much ready for action and I've calculated that I have just over 870 points worth and probably near on 1000, if I make them veterans. The force is pretty heavily armed and quite compact but that gives me plenty of options to scale it up and down to fit the available opposition:


Platoon HQ = 1 x 2nd Lt and runner @ 60 points

One Medic  @ 30 points

Two Infantry Squads = 1 x NCO with SMG, 2 BAR gunners, 9 riflemen @ 133 x 2 = 266 points.

Two Bazooka teams @ 60 x 2 = 120 points

Two MMG teams @ 50 x 2 = 100 points

One Light Mortar Team @ 40 points

One M4A3 (76mm) Sherman Tank @ 235 points

Total = 851 points

The force is based around the Rhineland list in the Armies of the United States supplement, making use of some of the special rules that apply to US forces in general, such as the option to field three MMG's instead of just one as a single selection. I've also maxed out on bazooka teams to make up for the lack of any AT capability.
