Another clarification, please:

What about an artillery piece plus crew? Does this count towards the tank/armoured car? If so, counts the crew as infantry, or are another 10 infantry required?

Just thinking about a possible team among my lead mountain, won't like to buy anything new ...

I'd say artillery piece plus crew counts as tank/armoured car. Crew doesn't count as infantry. Thus another 10 infantry or 5 riders required.

Paint a troup of 10 soldiers and an armoured car/tank or 5 riders and an armoured car/tank and get 20 points.



I've been wanting to paint an armored car for a while.  Can someone point me towards one that will hold five riders?  I assume a "rider" is someone actually mounted on the car?

not mounted on the car, riders means horse riders or 5 cavalry ones

that's OK, too, 10 models of porters/koolies/sherpas/mules/yaks/camels give 10 points.

I think there are more possibilities than one might think:
- Japanese
- Maybe French and USMC from Wladiwostok
- Afghans (army of god), so turbans are okay
- Czech legion
- Mongols
- Tibetans
- Turks
- central powers ex-POWs
- Army of India
and of course Reds, Whites, Basnachis & Chinese

This is great! I have some unphoto'd Turks I was planning to use as filler for Round 7 or 8, so now I just bump them to Round 10 and get the bonus for them! Hooray!
