FINALLY!!!!! 200 pt. Russian Army

Unread post by curtm1911 » Mon Mar 05, 2012 9:04 pm

With all the Wonderful help from people here, I can build Big & Reasonably Bada$$ Russian Armies now. Anyway, here is my 1st 200 pt. Russian Army to deal with the heathens from the West.......lol...........

Vet. NCO x1 6pts.
Commissar x1 5pts.
Guards Infantry x4 20pts.
Fanatical Sniper x1 8pts.
Red Army Forward Observer x1 6pts.
PPsH x5 15pts.
Soviet/Polish Infantry x5 15pts.
Mosin/Nagant x5 15pts.
Maxim MG x2 14pts.
82MM Mortar x2 22pts.
76.2MM ATG x2 18pts.
T34/76 x2 56pts.

If I go 250pts. I can add 2x Sturmoviks & a 2nd Sniper to this. All in all, it is nice to be able to build Russian Armies that can take it to the Germans now.

OK, with new additions to my Russians here is 250 pts.

2x Veteran NCO
1x Fanatical Sniper
6x Guards Infantry
10x Mosin- Nagant
3x Maxim MG
5x DP-27
1x Red Army Forward Obserever
1x 82 MM Mortar
1x 76 MM ATG
3x T34/76
1x SU-122
2x Lend-Lease M5 Half tracks
1x Conscript...make an even 250 ..... :D

Maybe swap the Sniper for the Hero, I do know my usual gaming bud will bring SS so the Sniper will see action.....I'll solataire both optons I do kinda know his style of building & play....I can get it close enough for Government Work.....lol
Thoughts/comments/chuckles.....

Congrats, that is some real army build!

I can give advice for going cheap route :D

I use Cromwell IV for KV-1 proxy - it's similar, cheap and looks great.
Then there's ZIS truck from 12-7-games and Zvezda Katyusha, both for 3$.
Only thing left would be some light tank, maybe Zvezda's BT5/7 and with that theres no scenario you can't play :wink:

If you go 250 pts you should include your SU-122, it would go well in that build. Looks like it would be a tough battle for the Germans.

...or those Russian Flamethrowers in the auction. :para1:

Ober,
Yes, the SU-122 is a beast in it's own right, this is just my first Big Russian build & I'm working on others also. I'm also working on using the ZIS Truck & SU-85 to smash the German Invaders......the truck would free up a T34 to carry more infantry while the truck can move the Maxim MG with a 76.2 ATG for some further AT firepower. Now to create some targets for this build......and the ones I am working on as well........so much fun to be had.....and now, back to building Armies.........WHEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

The SU-122 isn't that great at long range but when you get in at medium its pretty good. And with Armor 5 all the way around close assaults don't always get it. The truck and the MG and commander go well together, the combo gives that darn Command dependant unit mobility. The later war Russian units don't have the command dependant thorn, apparently they knew what to do later. lol
