The model is a neat, modified M20 Utility Vehicle. The Patton model is iconic and well detailed- check out those twin revolvers! Also included is the dismounted Patton with his dog Willy (William the Conqueror). Also included is a sticker sheet for the flags and license plates. I would advise adding a bit of super glue to the stickers as they weren't all that sticky. I like their inclusion (I'd love to see the same for some soviet flags!). So now I will let the pictures speak for themselves and highlight Patton's cool rules!
Lieutenant General George S. Patton Jr. is a Warrior and Higher Command Transport Team rated Fearless Veteran. He is mounted in an M20 utility car. You may field Patton for +100 points with the Tank Company on page 22 of Blood, Guts, & Glory, or the Armored Rifle Company on page 26, or the Tank Destroyer Company on page 32 Blood, Guts, & Glory.
In any turn in which Patton did not move At the Double, all American platoons with their Platoon Command team in Line Of Sight of Patton pass Motivation Tests on a result of 3+.
If Patton is Destroyed during the game American morale at the front and back home suffers a huge loss, despite any other gains. If this happens, the American player loses one Victory Point and their opponent gains one Victory Point at the end of the battle.
A Pint of Sweat
Each turn Patton may re-roll one die rolled to receive Reserves for his company.
If your force is the Attacker in a mission, each American platoon within Line Of Sight of Patton may make a Spearhead movement (see page 261 of the rulebook) at the beginning of the game.
Hold 'Em By the Nose and Kick 'Em in the Pants
A force led by Patton has the Always Attack rule (see page 257 of the rulebook).
Edit: Between writing this article and publishing it, we received a very kind gift from Battlefront! I largely followed their painting tutorial video for Patton but did not catch the last few seconds so I was totally oblivious! Thanks guys- meant a lot! Very cool move on their part!
