|Striped King Tiger supports Pioniers|
Well done on a great Total War game on Saturday. I called in for an hour and was impressed how balanced it was. One of the important lessons was infantry need smoke. Along that theme I've made a veteran infantry horde list with two smoke templates and heavy support. It's not the most balanced list but should be fun to play. It's based off a list I saw a while ago on the forums (?Mike McMann's list).
To get 8 Platoons - drop the HMGs and take a short pioneer platoon. Add in armoured 3.7cm AA. Can then KG to 8 platoons and have KT, Brummbars, Pioniers + mortars and Fallshirmjager on the board.
