Booyah! A great looking force there!

Any chances of some closeups, and tell us which units make up the lances/platoons?  :)

You and Worktroll definitely need to get in a game against each other! It will be like the Battletech version of the Battle of Kursk with all the vehicles. 😀

Are your vehicles IWM or MWDA?

The vehicles are IWM  :thumbsup:

I would absolutely take the 19th Cav and do my best against worktroll. His work is awesome.

I'm looking forward to when playing some Alpha Strike at a con becomes more feasible.

Not everyone living in Australia is a convict, you know.

I, for example, am a Canadian remittance man banished to this harsh, bikini-drenched land Down Under.

Still, if you're going to be in the neighborhood ...

Sideline: I used to live outside Chicago, and at the last job got a few business trips to the US which I 'bent' so I could catch up with some of the Chicago Demo Team. Great bunch of folks; don't know how easy it would be for you to visit one of their games, but highly recommended  :thumbsup:

Here's a fun Michigan fact for all non-Michiganders...when we wave "Hello!", we're also showing you where we live on the map.

Consider burning the bridge to keep the trolls away from their fudge and pasties.

Gotta say that is combined arms at its finest, very nice work!

I moved away from Chicago quite a while ago. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to make fun of them. Pardon the rust.  :D
