Re: Road to ....

If there is no road then they may come on anywhere on your table edge. Generally tanks kept to roads until within shooting range in large engagements but here we are talking of 1 or 2 afv's sent to support a platoon of infantry , either by design or accident. Personally, although I play the rule as ...

Re: Infamy, Infamy Hairy Germans!

Been awhile since I had 15mm Sarmatians but I think they are later than the 1st Corps Scythians. Normally the Sarmatian allies are pictured with complete horn barded horses , no shield and a kontos in both hands https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn%3AANd9GcTPsh8wKdHf9JN-xkBBW1biYM38udw1Bj...

Re: Iron Cross, 1st Corps, Rubicon or Empress Germans 28mm?

Actually now I visit the site I have seen them before but not sure I like the sculpts and they are all smocks as you say. Personally I prefer Offensive minis SS.

5cm mortars are EW stuff anyway and snipers rarely used. As long as you have MMG, iG and AT guns you are good to go.

Re: Iron Cross, 1st Corps, Rubicon or Empress Germans 28mm?

I agree the Empress are very LW Volks Grenadier and are brilliant at what they are
The old metal Warlord Panzer Grens are OK if you can find any.
Armoured Panzer Grens in LW tended to be more likely to have smocks but not SS camo. but this means you cannot use them for earlier Germans.

Re: Iron Cross, 1st Corps, Rubicon or Empress Germans 28mm?

Ordinary PG wore smocks in Normandy I don't think the Iron Cross ones are SS at all. I thought you referring to their own line of Summer Geramns for Salingrad? he other lines here are not theirs http://www.greatescapegames.co.uk/miniatures/miniatures-rules-of-engagement/german-grenadiers.html and al...

Re: Universal Carriers

I would agree with all of the above ib Serets post
I would sum it up thus:

Not all people NCO rank get represented in CoC as JL's

With Carriers keep moving and behind cover as as soon as you stop something is going to blow you up.

Dismount as soon as you stop as you can then take/hold objectives.

Re: Italian campaign army lists

Seret is correct tho I would go with mainly HG Grenadiers as they are nice figures IIRC and mix in a few odd ones to vary it.
