WW3: Team Yankee - Faction Focus: West German - Part 2: Support Units

Hi all it's Neil here with some more WW3 Team Yankee as there's been some NATO reinforcements with the release of the new West German book.  This is part 2 of my look at the new West German book where I'll be looking at the units that support your main combat units such as artillery, anti-air, tank destroyers and aircraft.  If you haven't seen part 1 going through the formations and their core units its probably worth checking it out first.  Hopefully this will be helpful to get to know the West German's support whether you're looking to use it or are going to be facing it down.

For The Lion: Armour Inbound

 Hi all it's Neil here with a new post for my For The Lion series where I'm showing my Gladiator tank to you.  The Gladiator is one of the latest vehicle releases for the space marines and is basically the Predator version of the Impulsor with a turret weapon and two sponsons.  The addition to my Dark Angels give me more anti-tank or anti-infantry options depending on which variant I use.

WW3: Team Yankee - Faction Focus: West German - Part 1: Formations

 Hi all it's Neil here with some more WW3 Team Yankee as there's been some NATO reinforcements with the release of the new West German book.  As in my previous factions focuses I'll start my looking at the formations in this post then part 2 will look at the units you can bring to support them.  I'm still a new player so I wouldn't be going into much in the way of competitiveness or list building in these but I am planning on doing some in the future after I get to play a bit more.  My hope is that these faction focuses will help new players like myself in picking a faction in the game to play as well as getting a bit of an overview of what you might be facing from the others too.  So lets get to it now and have a look at the West German formations.

Guardians of the Great Plan: Form the Battleline

Hi all its Neil here with another Guardians of the Great Plan post about my slowly expanding Seraphon project.  The latest addition to this force is my first battleline unit of Saurus Warriors armed with clubs and shields.  These are the first real unit for my Seraphon force but for their painting use all the colours from my first post in this series.

For the Lion: Interomancy Support

Hi all its Neil here with some more Dark Angels in my For the Lion series.  The latest editions to my Dark Angels force are a pair of Librarians to help interrogate those pesky Fallen once the Deathwing have captured them.  I've gone for a Terminator armour librarian and a Primaris one with Phobos armour giving me two quite different ways to use them on the table.

Casting Off: The Ark Royal

Hi all it's Neil here with a new Casting off post for Victory at Sea.  I recently got some reinforcements for my Royal Navy fleet in the form of Ark Royal escorted by a trio of Tribal class destroyers to give them a proper fleet carrier.

For the Lion: Shock and Awe

Hi all Neil here with a new For the Lion post about the Storm Speeder I've painted up this month.  Its quite a short post as I haven't done much beyond paint up the model for this project.  I've gone for making the Hammerstrike variant so I can add some more anti-tank firepower to my Ravenwing.  This new addition brings me closer to my planned 2000 point list for gaming again with 8.5 units out of 14 now fully painted.

Guardians of the Great Plan: Into the Beastgrave

Hi all Neil here with with a new Guardians of the Great Plan post showing how I painted up a unit of terradon riders and the Starblood Stalkers, the Seraphon warband for Warhammer Underworld.  These two had a few new types of features to paint so I've recorded what I did for the models so I don't forget if I come to paint more in future.  This Starblood Stalkers warband is my first foray into Warhammer Underworlds which will probably be the game I use to break back into gaming after the halt caused by Covid.

Casting Off: Matched Play Musings

Hi all Neil here with a new Casting Off post with some more of my musing about how to create a matched play style of play for Victory at Sea.  Everything in here will be my ideas and opinions and are currently untested due to the COVID pandemic but hopefully I'll get to test them at some point.  Creating a more matched play style means looking at list building, battleplans and scoring, which I will discuss in turn.  Each of these are vital to creating a balanced matched play environment and will probably look very different from the section in the rulebook about gaming.  Being a part of the community for the game I know that points are a controversial issue currently, pending a FAQ/Errata at the moment, but for this it kind of doesn't matter what the points are either a more sensible Warlord issued set or a community generated set so long as everyone playing a game (or event) are using the same one.

Deimos the Steel Forge: Part 3

Hi all its Neil here with some more Adeptus Mechanicus models for my Deimos force.  This time I've been painting up my first vehicle, a Skoripus Disintegrator.  This was a very different painting experience for my Ad Mech and a good lesson for me on using contrast on the large flat panels of a vehicle.  I was planning on sharing my idea for a list to aim for at 2000 points but with the new codex coming soon at the time of writing I'll be waiting till after that's released to do this instead.
