German Late War Lists

Post by TommyThor » Wed Dec 04, 2019 10:08 am

Where can I find German lists for the Late war period? Or have they yet to be released?

They're in the Core rule book covering Heer, SS and Fallschmirjager. In addition many of the Pint Size Campaigns (PSC) detail Platoon structures for that specific campaign.

If you've not tried a PSC yet, then I can heartily recommend Martlet (SS vs Brits. at the start ion Operation Epsom) and 29 Let's go (German Heer vs US Infantry 29th Division). Both great starters and fully furnished with all the historically appropriate army lists.

Specifically the ones in the rulebook are good for the period about late '43 through to near the end of '44.

If you want later than that try the campaigns Bloody Bucket and Road to Bremen. That second one is really late in the war with some pretty rag-tag German forces.

Is there an intellectual Property (IP) issue with making those available for wider use? I have all those PSC, but they would be of general interest.

I couldn't speak to the specific legality but, given how cheap the PSCs are, I personally think that people should buy them if they want any part of the contents, no matter how small. This is someone's livelihood, after all.

I do agree. They cost almost bugger all to buy but hundreds of pounds to amass the research material to produce. If people are "generally interested" they can do me the the courtesy of a price if a pint.

So yes, to be quite clear; there is an IP issue.
