Hoopers germans

Post by hooper » Fri Apr 11, 2014 1:40 pm

I am looking at taking part in this (my first ever campaign and first got at Bolt action except the intro game i had.)
I will be using German Fallschirmjager as it is my first army and there is almost a rule that says every one needs to do Germans first :lol:
I don't have the German army book yet as amazon is being super slow but after looking at the website and forums for Warlord games im thinking of something along the lines of around,
20 Jaegers with assorted weapons
a Mortar and LMG teams
some sort of officer.
possibly an AT gun of some sort.

Il put up a list as soon as the book arrives for you to all chuckle at and shake your heads.

Hi Hooper,

Awesomesauce that you want to join in. Its my first go at making/running a campaign, so i'm hoping it works ok.

If you go to this website Bolt Action Easy Army the main books are all on it and for free (for the time being). This will tied you over till your book arrives. Juts sign up and its a nice and really easy list builder.

Pretty decent army from what I can see, just a couple of suggestions. If you take one of the two men away from the Lt and give him to the artillery observer then the Lt becomes harder to hit (small teams are 2 models and suffer a +1 to the roll needed to hit) and if you haven't already make the mortar and the spotter inexperienced (the mortar should never be in direct line of fire anyway and it frees up a few points for the odd extra assault rifle :D )

Hope it helps!

Played Paul's Brits last night and lost horribly.
The Jaegers have been sent back to marksmanship training starting at barn door level after last nights performance.
When we move to 800pts i need to make sure i spend some points on additional british heavy artillery as it was supper effective :D
Looking forward to next week where the the rumours from command have us being reassigned to the dreaded eastern front :S
