Hi Doc
I can supply them all except Ferdinand: Comet and Pershing. Cameron has a Comet I think, Graham May have a Ferdinand, and Bill may have a Pershing mks 1 to 54? 😂

Following my post about big Tanker game with top end tanks for Christmas, I'm looking to see if anyone has any of these 20mm tanks:

Tiger II
Elephant
Ferdinand
Tiger
JagdPanther
JagdTiger

Comet
Churchill Mk VII

Is-II 1944
ISU-152

M26 Pershing
M36 Jackson
M36 B1 GMC

I'll look to see if there are some lower tier tanks that might still be competative too & update this list.

I said I'd run a final fun game of Tanker with top level tanks for all the players at the end of June. With holidays, the Waterloo game and the Glasgow show I've decided it would be better running the game at the end of July once everyone is back to normal routine.

Our last big game, with everyone who could make it playing, brought a conclusion to our "What A Tanker" campaign.

In the end Cameron, Scott and Ian survived the battle along with our newly declared Top Tanker, John.

Thank you all for playing its been a fun time.

We are looking at having a large game on the last Sunday of next month using Tier 5 tanks for everyone. A battle of the big beasties purely for fun and to see how dangerous they can be.

Top Tanker Standings after Early 1944

John 8 kills
Allan 4 kills
Cameron 3 kills
Ally 2 kills
Bill 2 kills
George 1 kill
Graham 1 kill
Ian 1 kill
Scott 1 kill
Scot 0
Stuart 0

I realised I hadn't been counting kills that had been traded for an upgraded tank in the last standings list.  I've now amended this.

I have realised that thinking I hadn't counted previously traded upgrades was a brianfart of the highest order. I have now amended this.

Barrel Rings after Early 1943:

1:  Allan          4 Rings
1:   John         4 Rings
2:  Scot R       3 Rings
2:  Stuart        3 Rings
3:  Cameron   2 Rings
4:  Bill             1 Ring
4: Ian             1 Ring

Tomorrow's games will end 1943 and in January we will begin 1944.  Uh-oh,  Bocage will be appearing!  Will there be nasty lurking anti tank infantry teams?  Who will get more barrel rings & trade up their tanks before 1944?

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.

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?
