What are my thoughts building a list this time?
1) I like German armour lists which are mobile and can attack yet not be too vulnerable to infantry AT
2) I like combined arms (so recon, smoke, arty)
3) I want uniquely Italy book units
4) I want some high end AT too!
So I assembled this list pretty much back to front, by that I started with support then went to the core.
So first up Nebs for smoke. (Always like three!) then some anti air - my pair of flakpanzer 38t's might come out of the box here. Recon - well 8 rads always serve me well. Wow 3 platoons already!Next I wanted flammpanzers, only a couple as they'll be ineffective in some situations. As you have to equally combat attach I also wanted to avoid panthers for my core platoons, so high end AT would have to come elsewhere.
So I hit my local shop, grabbed 2 flammpanzers - so that was all that would be in my list! Then 2 platoons of panzer 4's again points available dictated a platoon size of 4. This left me with needing some high end AT - elephants are Ben's baby so I've left them, but I can have some panzer 4/70's so I'll take 3.
So final list:-
2 HQ Panzer IV
4 Panzer IV
4 Panzer IV
3 Panzer IV/70
2 Flakpanzer 38t
2 8 rads
Thanks for looking
