Meh, they survived to fight another day. A wee walk back behind their lines and the Marder was easily replaced for the next battle. All that was left of George's tank and crew was a burning hulk and telegrams back to the motherland. Like I said, I want to feel bad about it.

I seem to remember your tank being knocked out of comission shortly after your glorious tank kill you wete celebrating. Your crew scrambling to escape, wishing they had worn their brown trousers to save their embarassment.

Ah cool, you probably explained that and I forgot.

I just remembered George's brave, veteran crew, freshly on 5 kills and now aces, dying a horrible, violent, death under the sights of my Marder. Very sad. One second, they're the cusp of greatness, the next they're splattered all over the place. I should probably feel bad... or at least worse than I do.

When some players had forced upgrades at tge beginning of 1942 I deducted 1 kill from those players. You lost one because of this then took out George in the first game. Brings you back to 3. It just looks like some people stayed static when they went down & have recouped the loss.
Hope this explains what happened.

Did my crew die last time? I remember killing George's crew. They were just turned Aces. Then they burned with their tank. Was a wee shame. But I seem to have stayed on 3 kills. Sure I got more than that.

By 1942 several countries no longer have Level 1 tanks in use. This leads me to upgrade affected players to Level 2 tanks and to keep Graham's upgrade relevant he receives a Level 3 tank. Also U.S.A. enters the fray, meaning some players now change to U.S. tanks. I will be contacting everyone in the coming weeks to let them pick their new tank so we will be ready for 1942 by the campaign day.

The issuing of new upgraded tanks makes sense to me as countries did upgrade their forces in the field as newer technologies and designs became available.

Thank you for your cooperation.

lol! Like I'm giving you a choice about this desicion lol!

Graham is our first Tanker to reach "Ace" status.  He traded it for a Level 2 tank in Early 1941.

Our next campaign day will be 29th July.

After sorting all the cards I am missing a Wild Card bonus card.  Has anyone picked it hp by accident along with their rules when we were clearing up?

I hope we are all ready for Week 2 of the What A Tanker campaign tomorrow. We may have 2 new players joining in, which would bring us to 12 players.

I did notice an error on a few German players sheets, which I should have noticed & corrected at the time. I will sort it out tomorrow and award 1 "apology" tank kill to the other players in the campaign. I will also pay more attention when folks are picking tanks that we get the right stats down.

See you all tomorrow for the final battle in 1940 and we can see how many 1941 battles we can play. 1941 sees the entry of Russia to our tables. I wonder what mayhem that may bring?

David I have contacted both Bill and Mick as I know they are both very keen to play in your campaign. I will let you know as soon as they reply so you can include them if they wish to join in. Hope this is OK.

With just over a week to go before the first shots are fired in our What A Tanker campaign I thought I'd remind folk I plan to start on 27th May.

We'll draw random nationalities (except Brian, he's French) & game tables/positions at beginning of the day. I'll be finalising all my paperwork & cards etc. and get stuff printed up next week so it's all there.

For quickness of setup I will dice for table scenarios & terrain in advance to help speed up setup.

Any questions?

Hi Eddie
I have deleted the message containing details about the club's funds.
John is absolutely correct, anyone and their dog can read these posts.

If you have information you wish to share on this matter it is probably best to announce it in person at the club.

Looking at last Sunday of the month to play so it doesn't clash with Falkirk, Deep Fried Lard & Claymore weekends.

@ Ed: Hopefully all 12 players will be able to be in each campaign week and the campaign may last 6 months, 1939 - 1945. Not as long if we get fast at playing the game & manage more than 3 games a day or possibly longer if 3 games in a day is too ambitious. Time will tell.

That's 12 players signed up so I am closing the list of players. Sorry to anyone who fancied playing and hasn't been able to sign up. There will no doubt be another campaign later.
