    Getting ready to run some What a Tanker for holiday visitors in the next few weeks, here is my layout, 3d printed tanks, and 3d printed dashboard I designed.

    Enjoy!

    That’s brilliant. I think I have a digital copy of the rules, might have to search them out after reading that blog post. I have those 3D files as well, only printed  a couple of German TD today, Hetzer and JagPanther. Thank you for sharing your designs as well. Have fun over the holidays 👍

    Looking forward to the game reports – you have a great set-up arranged there.

    I’ve watch one battle report and enjoyed it but do not own the rules TBH but the other TFL games are fun.

    @ian, it is a great way to get a new project together rapidly and cheaply, especially if you already have terrain.

    Thanks Andrew, I’ll post some pics. I think there are some how to play videos online too.  Once you get the hang of it, which is fast, you are pretty much looking at the table and thinking about what to od and not the rules.

    Does it allow for infantry at all?

    I could not see anything on the TFL site but it infers it’s armour only from the write up.

    I know they have Chain of Command but was interested in the simplicity of this…

    No infantry in the rules and need some tweaks to incorporate them unless they’re glorified targets.

    Tired is enough.

    It is 100% armor. Think of it like a western gunfight game, but with tanks.  (I don’t think) Chain of Command is that complicated, but I have yet to put that to the test. Planning on a try with my 10mm Korean War figures, we’ll see how it goes.

    But just to expand, it is a nice little low fidelity simulation (if I may be so bold as to use that word) that focuses on the decisions a TC would make.

    • Do I button up or keep my head up so I have better visibility?
    • Do I stay in place and keep shooting or try to maneuver?
    • Where is a good firing position?
    • How can I work around and get a flank shot?

    It also makes a fun game!

    Those are great dashboards and nicer than the others I have seen.

    There were rules for Infantry and AT guns in one of the 2019 Lard magazines. They are basic and covers AT Teams (Panzerfaust) and a few AT guns(PAK40).

    What did you use to make the cards with?

    A look at their website only shows one magazine for 2019.
    In the description
    “THE CANNONBALL RUN: Richard Clarke’s cupola runneth over with this break out game for What a Tanker!”
    Is this the artical with infantry rules?

    Yes thats it, but it only has rules for Infantry AT teams, and only stats for a panzerfaust team. There might be more detailed rules out there in the community.
