In fact one of my basic list which I got hooked playing FOW was a Panzerkompanie list from Fortress Europe.
My local store Paradigm Infinitum (PI) will be having a demo game for newbies by end of March 2012, so I was thinking of a list which is :
a. Simple and easy on the rules to play with.
b. Basic FOW building blocks....TANKS!!
With Version 3.0, Fortress Europe will not be utilised for any German "generic" list.
I have decided to adopt Grey Wolf and chose the Panzerkompanie list to build this upcoming list.
Do comment if the list needs some tweaking : )
|Panzer Company HQ||1x CIC StuG G or StuG IV, 1x 2iC StuG G or StuG IV||CV||190|
|Panzer Platoon||1x Command StuG G or StuG IV, 4x StuG G or StuG IV||CV||475|
|Panzer Platoon||1x Command Panther A, 3x Panther A||CV||750|
|Motorised Scout Platoon||1x Command MG w. Pzfaust, 3x MG team, 4x motorcycle with sideCar and MG||CV||170|
|Panzer Anti-Aircraft Gun Platoon||1x Command Sd Kfz 7/1 (Quad 2cm) Half-track, 2x Sd Kfz 7/1 (Quad 2cm) Half-track||CV||135|

Total 1750 points
My fluff will be based on the Panzer Grenadier Division "Grossdeutschland" which this list is based upon a Kampfgruppen operating in the Eastern Front in 1944.
Eveon though it is regarded as an Elite Wehrmacht unit, I do reckon due to the losses they had received had reduced the quality of the personnel to a more likely Confident Veteran.
Nonetheless, the unit has been one of my all-time favourite German army unit in WW2.
