Staff Armies - Phil's Chieftain Armoured Squadron
 
Whilst Phil can do complex math in his head that boggles the rest of us, when it comes to army building he likes to keep things pretty simple. So this weekend he is building an army that looks pretty simple. Yet I suspect pretty nasty on the table.
