Those formations seem to be really fragile from what I can tell. Its certainly a doable list, but it may be picked apart.

By chance were you planning to come the tournament at the Game Tavern in Chantilly this weekend? There is nothing that prevents you from bringing an army like this, aside from the desire to perform well. If memory serves, this entire army is trained, which is good for lower cost, but bad for lowering casualties, Germans especially rely on veterancy. Your 88s being reluctant trained can easily be negated with pinning or driven from the field. In fact your opponent only needs to kill your HQ, and 3 88s and they have a strong possibility of breaking that formation. The Tigers lack the bonuses of Tiger Ace, and there are a lot of guns in Late War capable of killing them. You’d be better off with one big formation.

I was just trying to digest the rules for multi-formation units.  I would have to take it back into the lab to really power game through it.
