Game Summit Lists

Postby Duncan » Fri Jan 06, 2012 2:31 pm

I figured I would move this here rather than clogging up Mike's painting topic...

Sadly, you can only take JOE with the Sherman Guards list -- which with 2 fireflies per platoon might not be a bad list if you assume you won't be facing to much infantry.

There are some interesting lists in Red Bear and Grey Wolf but I am waiting for them to add them to Easy Army!

The Kampfgruppe Bake list does look powerful but I would have to paint my Tigers (and I think I am a panther short)

Ah that is to bad about joe, that would have been cool. Well the Cromwells could probably still do ok.

At least they finally added Hell's Highway to Easy Army. I don't think you should write off using those books because of it thou, I redid my old Sturm Kompanie list with the new points and was able to get an extra platoon, plus there is the changes to mortars and the heavy breakthrough gun thing.

I can't imagine that you need that many tigers for the bake list, I guess 2 or 3 +1 extra panther is like 1 day of painting. Another list I think would be fun is taking 5 IS 2s (I think it is 5 that comes out to ~1500).

Thanks;

That is true about Bake -- Two Panthers in the HQ + 1 Platoon w/3 Panthers and 1 Platoon w/ 2 Tigers is 1370 points which would only be one Panther to paint (whether it is a balanced list or not is another question but it could certainly deal with Tanks!)

Just enough points left for 3 Nebelwerfers for smoke and pinning, and you can Kampfgruppe the 2iC with a panther to get 4 platoons. Maybe I should buy some panthers and do that.

I don't think you will really win by having a balanced army anyway, you kind of need to either overwhelm them with tanks or with infantry.

I can do a very similar list with HQ w/ 2 JagdPanthers and a recovery vehicle 2 Platoons of 2 JagdPanthers and 3 NW41s for 1500 but do I really want to get 3 more JagdPanthers (probably not!)

The only other lists I can see that can take Jagdpanthers are the 2 in Fallschirmjäger lists in Hell's Highway, the 326th Grenadier Company & a bunch of the SS companies in earth and steel.

This is what I end up with using the StuG Batterie list. The anti-aircraft is the only cheap platoon I could find to make the points work out nice. Seems alright but I don't see how I would fight tankovy with this. You can upgrade 1 tank per platoon to a StuH 42 which has AT 10 FP2+ and breakthrough gun for free so I would likely do that also.


Headquaters 1500

StuG Batterie HQ 110
StuG G 95
Tank Escort Team 15



Stug Platoon 330
3x Stug G 285
Tank Escort Teams 45

Stug Platoon 330
3x Stug G 285
Tank Escort Teams 45

Stug Platoon 285
3x Stug G 285

Divisional Support Platoons

Armoured Rocket Launcher Battery
Hq Section 180
1x Launcher Section 165
3x Panzerwerfer 42 (multier) 15

Sturm Platoon 190
3x Grenadier Squads 180
Panzerfaust SMG Cmd 10

Sturm Anti-Aircraft Gun Platoon 75
3x 2cm FlaK 38 75


Thanks;

I could do a 326th Grenadier with
HQ w/ 2 Panzerknacker + Mortars (85)
Grenadier Platoon w/6 Gren (120)
Grenadier Platoon w/6 Gren (120)
JagdPanther Platoon w/2 JP (460)
JagdPanther Platoon w/2 JP (460)
Machinegun Position w/ 2MG Nests (40 + 40)
Rocket Launcher Battery w/4 NW41 and Gun Pits (145 + 20)

Seems good to me, 4x Jagdpanthes should certainly kill allot of tanks.

How good are the nests? It seems like they cost as much as 2 HMG teams, and you can't put them within 8" of each other.
They are mostly for the auto-defend rule?

I am not sure how good the nests are really -- I have some and need a reason to paint them up!

I was thinking I could use one to support each infantry platoon. The auto defend rule is handy as well.

The 2cm FlaK will be useful if you actually run into someone who has taken air support
