Pete, I only have two PZ4D's. However, I would say that this list may work. It has 11 better tanks instead of 14 tanks of less worth. It has better Air Support and the same Artillery. You have the following:

1 Command Tank

5 PZ2s

3 PZ3s

2 PZ4s

4 105mm guns

Far better Air Support

and just for kicks and to use up five points, a recovery vehicle!

I am thinking of running my Italians! I get a lot of fair tanks with some infantry and a good amount of artillery along with air support for 1500 points! The armor of my tanks is just about the same and I have a better gun then most of the german tanks and two full batteries of artillery! No Flak though! I just don't have any light flak for my Italian's yet!

John, whatever list you come up with for me to be able to play Sunday is fine.  More importantly, I really appreciate you letting me borrow stuff!

Pete look over the lists and let me know what you would like to play for Early war. I have quite a few early war tanks for the german's. Not enough to play an entire company of PZ1s though. Only about 8 of them and about 12-15 PZ2s and plenty of PZ3s and only two PZ4d's. I do have an entire infantry company with plenty of artillery and A/T guns. Just let me know and I will tell you if I have the stuff for it.

I've come up with a couple of Brit lists.  I was also able to scrape together a German list.


I plan on going up to DC this weekend unless the weather really sucks.  If I go up I probably won't make it to Atlantis until 1.

John, what book did you pull the list from?
John Birdwell
John Birdwell Apr 9 '16

Sorry. I have been really sick for the last couple of days. I pulled it out of BK and the Italian list out of Hellfire. I have enough german stuff for most lists out of BK and Hellfire for your use. Just put several together and print them out and on sunday we can pick one. Do a couple of infantry ones and the same with the armored ones. And make sure they are ones that you think will be fun to play!

Plans have changed and I didn't go to DC.  See y'all at noon.  Looks like I need to be prepared with Brit lists.

In Burning Empires I found an Early War FJ list that I just may play one day. What do you guys think about it?
