I have played soviets for a long time and played them successfully at Origins. With the soviets as you know you need numbers, because everything hits them. With artillery upgraded and air, the soviets are more vulnerable. I have found the Mixed Tank Company a tough list to win with, because the cost of the heavy tanks takes numbers away from you. You mix T-34s and KV1s and you have an AT of 9 and moving a slow rate of fire. If this tourny like most will try to match up axis and allied against each other as long as they can. So everything you face will have ATs of 9-11-12 -13 or now 14 (Panthers). You will need to kill Tigers and Panthers with the new lists. AT 9 won't do it. Think about cutting the T34s down a bit and taking the 57x 3 option. Now you have mobile AT-11. Look at the Tank Destruction company, you paid for the 57s add a little and get the 85s and ROF of 3. They have saved me many times. At Origins they were very effective, also heavy AA, 3+ FP and good against infantry. I add 3 SU 85s for mobile AT-12. Tiger killers and can trade with panthers. In the old list you could add KV-85s but they dropped that option, unless that has changed. They are only available for guard Battalions. I am going to play my Origins list tomorrow and we may be on the same side if we do a large action. We will see who shows up. For 2,000 points I add the gods of war battery and AA. Ba-10s with there recon move are very nice also. They are 251 killers. We can talk more tomorrow.

Sean, I like both those lists. I would be comfortable playing either one. I think you will do just fine in any tourny. Good Luck

good lists and down right nasty.

This is what I am facing the Panther Company with:

HQ Strelk
9 sappers + pioneer wagon
4 AT rifles

2 full strelk companies minus HMG's

Full God of War minus observer but add ATR

Priority Sturmovik

A whole lost of hugging kitty fun. I should be able to survive even a FFA with this. The GOW can hit 2 or 3 panthers a turn and hopefully the Air will be coming in hot and nasty as well. If he rushes forward to avoid my air, he then has to tangle with close assaults from the Strelk with sappers AT4 and AT rifle of AT3. A good bunch of fun.

Wish me luck, I will need it.

Chris
