Flames of War Mid War GT 2012

T-26 in 3 colour camo - thanks to
Twas the night before the Mid War GT
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse

In the figure case tanks lay
Put there with care
Painted and varnished
They would fight like a bear

When out in the lounge
There arose such a clatter
Oh darn... I've forgotten to put some decals on he said!...

During the Iron Painter event at work I managed to complete about half the force, and as it was I managed to go so close to finishing off the army with plenty of time to spare only to stumble at the last hurdle. Luckily my wife asked me a question about 45 minutes ago which reminded me of the 3 small jobs I had still to do. So here we are 10 hours before the GT, 2 jobs down leaving one last job to do - varnish my T-26s.
KV in process (left) and finished (right)
Luckily for me I love the smell of Moana (the worlds best varnish) in the morning and since it dries in about 5 minutes I can complete that final job first thing tomorrow morning. 

As for the army list - here you go:
Light Tankovy Companies 
10x T-26S obr 1939: 205 points.
9x T-26S obr 1939: 190 points.

Heavy Tankovy Company

 6x KV-1e: 620 points.

Tankovy Anti-tank Company

 4x 76mm ZIS3 guns: 130 points.
Light Armoured Car Platoon
 3x BA-64 75 points

Armoured Car Company

 10x BA-10M: 310 points

Sporadic Air Support

 I-153: 90 points.

Total Points: 1620 points

The plan is to use the KVs to lead the charge, T26s will protect the flanks whilst the BA-10s use their mobility and lack of Hen & Chicks to be my mobile force. The ZIS-3s can hopefully protect an objective and the air support will take out German Tigers.... or at least that is the plan. I'll let you know how it goes next week....
