Just up on the Tanks! Website

Looks like a nice cheap bit of firepower for the USA

Well the Cautious rule is "almost" the same as the one I came up with a few days ago:

Tank Destroyer
If this tank is stationary and in Cover then it can add an extra Defense die. If it did not move more than speed 1 then it may make a Command check immediately after shooting. If it passes (4+) then it may make another speed 1 move. For the rest of the turn treat it as having moved the combined speed of both moves.

Official version
Cautious
After shooting roll a die on a 4+ make a single move and add 1 to it's speed token.

But a Hull of 3 with an Armor of 0 is going to be a problem.

Excited not so much for the vehicle itself, but for the possibility that GF9 will take steps to bring out new product for the game. With the initial wave using all the existing plastic kits, the M10 indicates that GF has at least 1 new one, and hopefully more on the way.

So far their support has been lack luster at best. There announcing new units and I still can't get a starter in the US. The one thing I did get was the OP 1 kit. I managed to run the event on 1 starter and a hand full of tanks. Disappointed so far but the M10/36 would be cool.

Id heard the distribution in the states had been problematic, over here in the UK alot of stores have taken to ordering directly from battlefront.

My local store has had multiple re-stocks of the starters (and all the expansions) and is struggling to keep them in-stock due to demand.

As for my hopes for the rest of the October releases;

either a Churchill or Covenator/Crusader kit for the Brits;

Either a Tiger/jagdtiger or a Pz38T/Marder2 kit for the Germans;

Either a T-28/T-35 or a SU76/SU85B kit for the USSR
