Well, it’s a nice start You’ll constantly be adding to this force; you’ll never have enough…. I had recently invested in some Churchill tanks, mostly the “III” version… mostly on bargain from ebay; this was timely, with the new “Italy” compendium. With a little good fortune, I have the makings of a do-able list; [...]
Current forces available at the moment. I’ve still to build another two Panzer IV H’s and one of the Panzer III M’s is elsewhere. I’ve made an attempt at partially upgrading some of the Panzer II E’s to F’s by changing the cupolas. I won’t be buying much more,as this is just a filler force. [...]
yeah i think i have all the bazookas i can take haha cheers for the info i thought about taking a unit of mortars too but i think i need something to take out heavy German Armour the opponent i play the most runs jagdpanthers all the time haha so felt like i needed to [...]
@fillianjpruscht said: I would start by expanding your infantry, maybe with some Halftracks. Then start looking at support. On both fronts, mortars are very useful (they’ll even knock out heavy tanks!). You’ve also got the old stalwart of panzer ivs. Wait until you’ve got a good core before adding the heavy stuff. The other thing you’ll need [...]
i was just looking at some halftracks that i could use with the grenadiers i have from the open fire set. yes i was looking at going for some panzer vi’s since i love the models for them. and i’m pretty sure any german army is not a german army without a few 88′s

The box is designed to be used with the Marked Garden books. But with extra StuGs you’re spoiled for choice. For the more generic lists, go for either the D-Day or Bagration books. They contain lists that will give you pretty much anything from standard infantry to heavy tanks. Keep in mind that it also [...]
i could tell just buy the pictures that they didn’t look great. the plastic infantry in the open fire box set are great, so i think if i do get anymore infantry i’ll just stick to the battlefront plastics for the time being
awesome. good luck at the tournament. well thanks to FoW FTW i’ve been wanting to get in to FoW for ages and finally got my self the open fire box set at salute last weekend. now i can’t stop looking at the plastic soldier company website :S can’t really argue with their pricing
awesome cheers guys, once i get use to playing FoW and build a gaming table for it i’ll have a look at those 2 books. i’m just in the process of getting my friend to join me for my journey into FoW which shouldn’t be that hard, any excuse for him to buy shinny new [...]
Atlantik Wall seems to be a good book. That’s the one I have and it does have some good lists in there for tanks. Its got Panzer IV’s, Panthers and Tigers in the various lists and appears to be very adaptable
I personally use grey wolf. I’d suggest adding some support platoons.
I bought open fire then added in units i liked not building to a list. i currently use my open fire grenadiers with Panzer IV’s MG platoon. the open fire stuff is really good!
i’ve just got myself the open fire box set, which is awesome. i plan on doing a late war german army. i was wondering on what was the best book to use. i’m looking to have some panzer iv tanks once i start to expand my army, and possibly some heavier tanks. so basically what [...]
I own some KT’s (for a peipers charge list) and they came with fallschirmsjager escorts…
But I can’t seem to find an army list where they are explicitely listed. I suppose you have to pay them, so they need to be somewhere in a list.
Does anyone know which list they are included?
