2nd Armoured Tank Company

This is my US 2nd Armoured Tank Company which I have been painting for my brother-in-law to use against me. The picture shows all the units I have painted at present including the rifle platoon I featured yesterday.

The following army list for this force includes a Stuart Platoon which is still a work-in-progress and therefore not included in the picture. This list represents the units available to select from, not a rules legal army (you can only select 1 supporting platoon for each combat platoon fielded for example).

HQ Platoon
M4A1 Sherman (2 M4A1 Shermans) 180 points
Combat Platoons
M4A1 Sherman Platoon (5 M4A1 Shermans) 450 points
M4A1 (76mm) Sherman Platoon (5 M4A1 (76mm) Sherman's) 550 points
Weapon Platoons
M5A1 Stuart Platoon (5 M5A1 Stuarts) 310 Points
Supporting Platoons
Armoured Rifle Platoon (HQ+Lt Machine Gun+60mm Mortar+2 Rifle) 310 Points
Tank Destroyer Platoon (HQ+1 Tank Destroyer Squad) 175 Points
Rifle Platoon (HQ + 3 Squads) 155 Points

Total 2130 Points

I now need to add another Sherman Platoon, Field Artillery and definitely some air support in the form of a flight of P-47 Thunderbolts. This should give my Brother-in-law plenty of options to choose from when selecting a force to battle my Panzer Lehr Tank Company (Pictures of which will be posted this afternoon).


  1. That's a nice lot of US firepower, a pity as they will get their asses kicked by the Germans. Very nice work.

  2. A very nice paint job and collection Lee

  3. Looking good, although i've gotta admit i'd prefer taking the Lehr.

  4. Very splendid indeed. Imposing...ready for battle!

  5. A very nice looking force there. Time to get them on the table to bring it to Jerry!

  6. I am unaware of a rule stating a limit on supporting platoons. I have never seen that.

  7. That is a lot of hours of cutting, filing, gluing, painting, baseing and flocking.
    Looks great.
