I had a Hell of a time trying to figure out what the caunter camo scheme was. Nobody agrees! The first time I heard of it, my reaction was joy that I'd never have to paint it since it had nothing to do with Poland. That didn't last long. "Drake" was the only one I had a decent reference for and then I randomized the rest. I know better now that the lines are more predominantly front to back instead of across, and the result should be more like triangles. I'll fix that for troops two and five when I get around to painting them.
Playing Matildas has been strange. They draw a lot of fire and laugh at it. But their main gun is terrible. In early war they are ridiculously expensive, and then there's the cheese factor of knowing some of the other players don't have anything that can kill them, so I've only taken a two-tank troop once (where miraculously, they were destroyed by Italian Engineers. Stronzo!)
I really like the way these play. It's nice to waste enemy fire by pulling them out of harm's way and I'm looking forward to using the rest of the recon special rules too. I'm going to paint up another squad or two of them some day, and those will be in caunter.
These 2pdr portee AT guns get one turn of shooting per game. Then something throws a rock at them and they all blow up. Ambush is nice when they can get it. They are shiny because I'm still deciding what markings to paint on before I dull coat them.
