It probably comes as no surprise but there are plenty of good things about working for a gaming company, not least being surrounded by passionate gamers and hobbyists. The downside is that it takes a supreme amount of concentration and effort to not get swept up in the excitement that happens every time we work on a book.

Sadly, one of the many things I have not been blessed with is the ability to stand my ground and say “Whilst I think this new book/project is very exciting, I already have too many things on the go, so I won’t be building anything new time time.”
Instead I say......

In this case there are two lists that have really called out to me and whilst I’ll leave the Death or Glory boys to Casey, I am sorely tempted to try to knock out a quick Churchill Armoured Squadron just because…
The army list is so simple because I thinking more about models rather than just effectiveness on the battlefield, but in saying that I wouldn’t underestimate 99 points of Churchill tanks!
Churchill Armoured Squadron  
Churchill III Armoured Squadron HQ 33 Points

Churchill III 6pdr (x 1)


Churchill CS 2pdr & 3-inch (x2)


Churchill III Armoured Troop 1 33 Points
Churchill III 6pdr (x 3)   
Churchill III Armoured Troop 2 33 Points
Churchill III 6pdr (x 3)  
Mad Tanks Comand Card 1 Point

This Unit can Shoot and Assault after using a Cross Here Movement Order while moving at Tactical Speed. When using the Cross Here movement order, this Unit automatically passes Cross tests.

Thanks to the Churchills coming in at a nice round 11 points each it would be very simple to tweak the list if I wanted something a little more robust by dropping a Churchill CS (or even both) which would give me plenty of points for recon, 25pdrs and infantry making it a much more rounded force capable of taking on a variety of opponents.

But let’s be honest, the real drawcard for this list is 9 (yes 9!) Churchills in one company!

For those people that are picking up a free Churchill with their copies of Armoured Fist (for more information click here) this may be a great start for your Armoured Squadron, just add two more boxes of Churchills and support units to taste and away you go!
