The lists for Israel and Egypt are almost complete, I'm still playtesting them to see if my points will work and to make certain they play like their historical counterparts operated, but so far I'm pleased.
I may adjust the points when I see the cost for tanks in the new FOW Vietnam book. Using the older FOW cost for the M48 Patton as a baseline I quickly realized a 1500 point game would have only half a dozen Israeli Tanks versus hardly ten or so Egyptian tanks, that wouldn't work so I went with a far lower points cost for tanks in my lists.
I also would like to recommend you check out NDC Wargames who have lists for the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Looking over their list helped me fill out the arsenal listings, even though the War in 73 had a great deal of new equipment for both sides that was unavailable in 1967.
Here are a couple of teaser images.
The lists names are still working titles. I will keep everyone up-to date on the progression of this project. But for now check out some early shots of my miniatures for the game.
|A column of Egyptian T-34/85's.|
|I'm excited to get the new Vietnam T-34/85's, with AA Dshk MG.|
|Scanning for the enemy.|
|The enemy an IDF M51 Sherman, by Quality Castings.|
|Two M50 Shermans with 75mm guns, also Quality Castings.|
|A 75mm gun like the Panther Tanks, make these Shermans deadly.|
This is only the beginning as I have order an entire Sherman Company for Quality Castings and am waiting on the new BF T-54s, T-34/85s, PT-76s and ZSU-57s.
