What a Tanker Advanced Orders
« on: March 22, 2018, 12:01:58 PM »
Morning all,

Just to let you know that our WWII tank combat rules are now at the printers and will be released on the 9th of April.  To celebrate we are offering a great advanced order deal where you get the hard copy rules, PDF and token set for £24.  We have a piece on Lard Island News about the game here: https://toofatlardies.co.uk/blog/?p=7295

Or you can order here:  https://toofatlardies.co.uk/product/what-a-tanker-complete-advanced-order-bundle/

And here's a snap of the cover:

Interesting. I don't see the scale or table size mentioned anywhere. Presumably 28mm and 6x4 table? Tokens are MDF?  Kind of hard to decide to order without this sort of basic info.

Excited for this, and that's a hell of a deal there!

axabrax, I get the feeling it's rather scaleable, but I think I saw them using 28mm tanks in some playtest photos I saw.

It's scale neutral.  With tank ranges being what they are it's pretty irrelevant.  We play in 15mm and 28mm.  6' by 4' table, but larger if you have a whole load of mates round.  Acrylic tokens.

I'm in.  I have 1/72 tanks for my Chain of Command project that'll work, though I've only been collecting them in singles (occasional double) as CoC supports, so it'll look a bit Kelly's Heroes-ish to start. 

In 6mm (probably using cm instead of inches), I've got everything ready to go, in multiples of awesomeness.

I have a load of TFL's rules and I'm sure this one will be enjoyable. 

However, if Lardy Rich is still listening, what I would REALLY like is a system able to handle effortlessly larger WW2 armoured forces of up to a squadron a side, that is neither so abstract that it glosses over equipment performance differences, nor too 'rivet counter' heavy on charts, while allowing for leadership and crew experience levels and national/doctrinal variations to give a strong period flavour.

C'mon Rich, you know you want to, and on the strength of a promise of doing it with a North Africa theme, I will buy "What a Tanker" too!  lol

Sir Rodney

I'd certainly look at that. Not sure when though if I'm honest. I'm keen to do something larger at some point, although it couldn't be specifically desert.

Bought mine last night. Looking forward to an occassional diversion from Chain of Command, which we have just started playing. I might be able to get the FoW/Tanks! crowd at my FLGS to try some nice, sugary Lard...

Rich - That sounds encouraging, and can we at least have a desert picture on the front?

Pre-ordered also. Quite intrigued by the Tanker Tool. Always happy to get assistance with Tanking. Couldn't resist this advance order deal anyway!
