Red Block List - First Cut

Got the big shipment of Red Blok stuff in the mail yesterday. I was suprised by the quality of the army box; you could bludgeon someone unconscious with the box alone. It'll also be nice to have a spare Odin & Manon to experiment touching up.

Also, I had a total brainfart and, in thinking I was ordering three Dragomirov Kolossi, I ended up ordering three boxes of Dragomirov Kolossi. It was a stupid mistake, and I'm really not sure how I made it: I was probably focusing on Lt. Dragomira O-3, who's pretty much the same thing and comes one figure to the box. Given how much it would cost to return the extra two to the War Store... I'd only end up saving about $10 anyway. So, I'll keep them (unless anyone local wants some, in which case let me know!).

I've started playing around with lists for the game. For fun, I made one that uses all of the Dragomirov Kolossi. It's probably a wildly bad list... but what the heck?

Red Blok - Frontline
  • Kozni
  • Hetman
  • Dragomirov Kolossi x3 - Lt. Dragomira
  • Dragomirov Kolossi x3 - Sergeant
  • Dragomirov Kolossi x3 - Sergeant
I could just use the list from the Army Box... but I'm leery of putting the Dotch Yaga into a 2,000 point game, for the same I reason I don't like running Land Raiders: too many points!

Instead, the list I plan on running initially will be a mite heavy on infantry and a bit light on striders... but I think it'll be alright.

Red Blok
  • Urod
  • Kraznye Soldati x12 - Captain Vrachov, Medic x2, Grenade Launcher x3
  • RPG Soldati x12 - Sergeant, Medic x2, MGauss x1
  • Dragonov Kommandos x9 - Sergeant, Electronic Warfare x2, Sniper x3
  • Dragomirov Kolossus x4 - Lt. Dragomira
I could take three MGauss weapons in the RPG Soldati... but I don't have the models and I'm unlikely to buy another two attachment boxes simply for the the MGauss bearers. Without much headache, I could replace the four Dragomirovs with three Strielitz and use the left over points to turn the MGauss into three rocket launchers, which I do have the models for. This is a start, though.
