This section is to allow players to post up army lists for play, for discussion, but also we've had a number of requests from new BKCIV players for sample 'starter' lists, as they need to get their heads quickly around how to build forces.

What would be helpful is if each set of lists (as ideally matched pairs would be useful) was posted as a new topic and the points value of the lists included in the header for the topic, a along with any specific rules scenario.

So for example: France 1940 - French v German 1,500 points Encounter

I'll run up a 1500pt French v Germans 1940 pair as an example.

All lists gratefully received ...

Many thanks

Mark

1500pts seems like quite a large figure for a starter army.

How many points are the French & Early German starter army packs that Pendraken sells?

The sample I gave here

http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,18556.0.html

for a British, NW Europe Starter Army force, came out at c.1500 pts

So 1500 might be a little high for 1940 but not hugely so.

It's actually not a lot of units - army BP 8 & 7 respectively

The idea (& this was a play-test matched pairs that I used with a friend to introduce him to BKC) was to use a variety of unit types and mechanisms.
We were done in 2 1/2 hours - and the Germans won decisively - once the French AA got knocked-out the Stuka dominated the battlefield - not helped by the inability of the French commanders to roll more than 1 order in a turn  Angry

Oh ... yes ... I was the French
