Blue on blue just doesn't sit right with me. I'll use the Cromwells if you want to face an all tank force, but ivthougjt the Germans might make for a more interesting game.

That's cool. I'm still learning rules so I don't mind either way.

So a 1000 point list for tonight:

HQ with 2 Piat Teams 60
Commando Company (2 Sections) 390
Commando Machine Gun Platoon (3 sections) 115
Commando Mortar Platoon (3 sections & observer team) 105
Naval Gun Fire Support (with observer team) 200
Corps Anti tank platoon (2 x M10 17 pounders) 130

Total: 1000 points
A total of 3 commando platoons so breakpoint is when 2 are destroyed (as I understand it). Not sure what's in Dave's force so I've tried to balance antitank and anti personnel whilst trialing lots of different things.

Here ze are..

1000 Points Feldhernhalle Panzergrenadierkompanie
Infantry Company

Feldhernhalle HQ 45 points
Feldhernhalle Panzergrenadier Platoon (3 squads) 180 points
Feldhernhalle Panzergrenadier Platoon (3 squads) 180 points
3 Hummels inc Pz3 observer 310 points
3 Jagdpanzer IV's 285 points

Feldhernhalle PzGrenadiers are street fighters which means their HQ teams hit on a 2+ in assaults. No Hadokens in sight though.

We won't mention the fact that Kamphgruppe Feldherhalle were in fact fighting in the Eastern Front whilst the invasion of France was under way...

Nope, all on foot. The have an option to upgrade to cars. No halftracks in sight. They are however all MG teams.
