    Here are some quick and dirty example lists from Atlantik Wall using mostly the minis you’ve got. Panzer II Luchs can be proxied with IIF (I assume most people won’t give you any grief for use of such a proxy). Nebelwerfers are something I’d advice you to get, since they are excellent unit for their [...]

    Both infantry and panzer companies should be doable with that set up. Do you have any wishes about the type of company and front it fought in?

    Hi m8 have had a bit more of a look 1921 – 1st Cavalry Regiment was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division on 20 August. 1933 – The regiment was reorganized and redesignated as 1st Cavalry Regiment (Mechanized) on 16 January. 1940 – The regiment was redesignated as 1st Armored Regiment (Light), and assigned to [...]

    Thanks i was thinking that but i was not sure. I have not seen any decals for 1st Cav so they may not have been a unit that was yet covered buy the system except in Vietnam.

    I have the Open Fire box set and i am looking to expand my army. I have decided to go American and as I was attached to the 1st Cav I have decided that is the force I will build. What is the best Forces book for creating an army based on the 1st Cav? [...]

    Yeah, you guys are right. It IS all about the fun. haha :) Still I’m very curious as to what strengths the Japs would have in game.

  • frizzenspark posted on the forum topic british paras in the group Avatar Flames of War:   1 week, 4 days ago · View

    The boxed sets are great… I was spoiled in that I found many of my Airborne troops on special…. I probably have too many :) The Minis are fairly easy to paint once you get the routine down…. The Tetrarchs are decent small models, but they were not universally used; add them as an afterthought. [...]

    Have to confirm frizzenspark in this, and I’d like to add that a force doesn’t need to be great to give you plenty of fun…. The fun is in the game, not necessarily the win…

    Tetrarchs are a very old design in Market Garden (as they were during Overlord). At this point, like the Panzer II, they were reduced to Recce units at best.

    I quite lile the looks of tetrach tanka but they are in overlord and I dont see them in market garden
