An Adjutant is almost always the first support choice I make, simply because I hate wasting dice rolls and if I don't have an Adj. I'm bound to roll at least one 4 every single phase.

Support I have or can run

Senior Leader
Pre game barrage
Pioneer Flammwerfer Team
Sdkfz 251 no weapons (so does the LMG team that's using the halftrack use their own LMG ?)
Sniper Team
Green Infantry Squad
Reg Panzergrendier Squad
Pioneer Squad (what is this squad made up of? I'm expecting smg, lmg and flammwerfer)
sdkfz 251/10 command halftrack
Marder III
Sdkfz 251/9 stummel (is this is some other list ?)
Panther
One thing that's not spelled out specifically (because you're just sort of assumed to know) is that 251 halftracks were only found in panzer divisions, so if you're playing an infantry platoon those aren't an option for you. Luckily though you only need to add a few extra figures with LMGs to be able to field either an infantry or panzergrenadier platoon. That's worth doing as several of the Pint Sized Campaigns use panzer troops.

Don't underestimate the value of the Adjutant as a support option. You don't need a figure for him and he frees up your SL(s) to do their job on table.
Yes, Yes, yes, and YES! :ugeek:

Sometimes you don't even need to do that. In 1940 Panzergrenadier Platoons from 1st to 4th Panzer Divisions have squads with just one MG34. But there aren't very many 251s around then anyway.

Sure, but since the OP was referencing panzerschrecks and panzerfausts I think they're interested in late war shenanigans.

Early and mid war would be fun to build also just got to splurge more into getting new units :lol:

I am very fond of the fortifications and entrenchments from AnyScale models. Very light on the pocketbook and very easy to paint. They come in sizes from long team to “whole Italian section”.

I would like to see entrenchments play a bigger role in the game, like they did in real life.

To that end we have modified the HE rules to make entrenchments relatively more effective than hard cover. Playtesting at the moment.
