I'm back again with another article derived from my own going attempts to procrastinate.
What do I mean by this? Well the other day I was playing my friend Army Dave, he's only just getting into FoW and was fielding an eclectic assortment of units. Amongst these were a pair of heavy infantry guns. We spoke a bit about using them, they're not great artillery (2 guns) they're not great anti tank (RoF 1) and they're not great against anything in direct fire (range 16 iirc) but how do you get use out of them? In this case I thought the main use was 'filling the gap' they're useless at everything, but can do a bit of everything.
But they're not alone IMHO, other units I have which I love but struggle to use include -
- Sturmtigers - seriously how often do you need to level a city block in a game of FoW?
- Centaur tanks - they can support my para's but limited numbers, trained and not great AT just mean they never find a home
- Staghounds - I love the model but with lots of terrain wheeled recon just rarely does it for me.
- Bofors SP - never got anything out of these guys other than a set of models I disliked putting together
Anyway I hope you enjoyed this. Until next time - stay useless
