I have recently got the third edition bundle and when I saw this post I thought I might just lump a couple of my own questions in in case anyone could answer them!
While I have a fairly good grasp of WW2 history, that doesn't necessarily mean that it is directly applicable to the game and so I am a bit stumped as to what to go for army/era wise.
The material in the books gives a pretty good overview but I was hoping you guys might be able to go a bit in depth. I would probably be collecting two smallish armies as
while there is interest within the group, no one can quite afford to outlay much at the moment.
As such I suppose I will have to get a German force, since they can fight everything else. and I was thinking about a British force to complement them. Having never really had much of a chance to look over the briefings, how much does the
nature of the armies change from era to era (at least in terms of what happens on the tabletop)? For example, if I was to go for midwar forces, could I play early and late forces as well, or would the model requirements more or less require
a complete new force? Are the German forces in late war briefings substantially more defensive in the core requirements or could the bulk of a midwar force still fit in? I am trying to get as much flexibility for the least outlay basically, just so we can get a few games
and then we can all take it from there in terms of favoured nation/era etc.
EDIT just in case it matters to any advice, neither I nor anyone I play with have any intention of playing competitively nor getting the most efficient or powerful army - I happily use Ushabti and Skellingtons with spears!
Cheers for any help guys
