Likely just a basic, tanking scenario.

Open to requests for particular vehicles.

I have a Plan "B" if no one's up for this, but I figured I'd do this for a change of pace.

I'm game. And I'm biased toward Soviet tanks, but some kinda North Africa early war scenario might be interesting. Give me Italians!

I was looking at the What a Tanker! rules and got to thinking: It's almost exactly what you'd want for a Girls und Panzer game. Driving random WWII tanks around, the campaign system, it's all there. You would need some extra rules for tankrobatics, the more unusual maneuvers. But that's not a big deal and it's almost like they designed the game for the anime.

If this idea ever comes to fruition stick me down for a TOG!!!

Well, that was a fun rabbit-hole.

Tiny Italian tanks are TINY.

See you tonight.

Unfortunately, WaT! doesn't have stats for the L3/33 (or any other tankettes), which is problematic.

Just a note to congratulate Vance and Chrono for what proved to be a pretty tight win last night.

I had to bring the Italians over the finish line, but once it was two of the wee coursers against the TDs, it really was a bug hunt for the Allies.

Must now work to improve the "What a Tanker!" "U.I." in TTS.  Much, much smaller it can and should be.  Also, more dice rollers = better.
