Volkssturm List

Post by robert.hurley@me.com » Sat Oct 12, 2019 7:05 am

I had a great time running a Volkssturm platoon at MOAB 2019.
I approached John Bond, the tournament organiser and submitted a proposed Volkssturm list for the tournament. After some collaboration and input from John we arrived at a pretty good list. Since MOAB, I have added a few tweaks to it that make it a little more balanced in attack type scenarios.

Unfortunately I can't seem to attachthis list in either WORD, pdf or screen shots!
Can someone help!
Edit: this should work.

Is box fed LMG a magazine fed LMG ?

I didn’t know that Germans were still using these weapons during the last months.

There are of all sorts of Volkssturm weapons including Lewis Guns, ex Luftwaffe MG13 conversions etc etc. The idea behind the list is to balance out some of the advantages (cheap entrenchments etc) with lesser LMGS and more limited support choices.
