Re: Late War Hitler Youth

I can't think of any specifically sold as such. If close counts, though, Peter Pig is probably your best bet. They have a massive range, including some Volkssturm, and their sculpts tend to be less bulky than other ranges. I have used some of their civilian figures as young teens alongside bulkier 1...

Re: Small arms fire vs softskin vehicles

Had to dig that passage out (p.39 if you do too), and to me it reads that the soft-skin damage table roll is in addition to any hits inflicted on the troops riding them (which would be spread as normal), especially since the mechanic is the same as how H.E. can damage buildings or crew-served weapon...

Re: Looking for scenario suggestions - desert

Consider using the Swift to Support or Blitzkrieg missions from the 1940 handbook for one of the pursuit phases of the desert war. The fighting at Derna in 1941 is a good example, with the DAK trying to cut the coastal highway to prevent the British retreat to Tobruk. Also, if you have enough trucks...

Re: PSC advice

Haven't played it yet, but Road to Bremen looks very interesting. Also, consider running the great Blitzkrieg "Many Rivers to Cross" campaign with the Allies as the attackers instead.

Re: Wildcard Deck Suggestions

Ooh, for the Germans, "Tiger Terror"! When selecting any turreted AFV support option, they can deploy a Tiger model and treat it as such until it is successfully hit by an AT round, at which point it is properly identified and reverts to its original type. (The increased AP and HE values of its atta...

Re: Targeting Tanks with ATG's of Bazookas

Does the effect of Covering Fire apply to anti-vehicle attacks? It isn't listed as a modifier in that section of the rules, and even if it does apply, a -1 modifier is less impactful than on infantry fire. For towed guns that's probably fine, almost all have gun shields anyway, but it does seem to b...

Re: Wildcard Deck Suggestions

Don't know much about the specific units, but a game-relevant effect would be local civilians pointing out German positions in the area, forcing a unit to deploy early as per the random event. Perhaps require it be a support unit, if any are present.

Re: Rifle Grenades Vs Armour

That makes sense. Something like that would probably fire as a standard IAT weapon, albeit with a lower strike value. I'd be interested to know how common/effective they were in actual use.
