I'm wrestling with the fact on how many Panthers shall I bring on the board. (unfortunately, I have only 4 painted Panthers and my strategy is limited by those numbers...)
Due to its high points, it's quite apparent I will be lacking platoon numbers and may become a glass fist instead of an iron fist.
Another change will be the change from the initial StugIIIG to the ubiquitous Panzer IVH which features the LW paper thin FA 6 against StugIIIG FA 7. On the other hand, an extra MG is quite handy if the tank platoon needs to root out dugged-in infantry. There's long threads in FOW forums on which tank to be chosen as the main choice. I don't wish to be caught in that argument.
But the fact that FOW Grey Wolf amended the pointage for StugIIIG to be 5 points higher than Panzer IVH may tilt in favor of the Panzer IV.
Paper thin FA? No problem...shoot and scoot!
For the fun part, I decided to bring in the JU-87 Stukas for the game since I want to show that the Luftwaffe is still flying around and not drafted to ill-trained Luftwaffe Field Divisions!
I will decide on a finalized list by Friday. But food for thought, 1 Panther = 2 Panzer IVH.
Numbers versus Quality?
