Yes, as I was building it I was thinking "This is going to be very fun against Caesars's Army. Only problem is, I have no artillery at all for now...but I do have 14 Shermans and they are all part of Recce teams Smile

Well, it's kind of rude to scold someone "You didn't spell my name right herp-derp!". So I positively reinforce folks spelling my name right. Very Happy

I want to play a Panzer Company with adequate infantry support, so not just tanks.

I picked up the River of Heroes Book, it has two nice SS PAnzer lists, the Wiking Division and the Totenkompf division, I really like the latter.

I have read the rules but I am still prying through them, I figure I'll have a good grasp after I have a game or two under my belt.

I teach at Booker T. Washington High School, I teach 12th grade AP Literature and European History.

Right now I am just scouring ebay for a good deal on miniatures, hopefully I'll have some by weeks end.

Mike check out the Cobra book. It has The 2nd SS(Das Reich),12th SS Hitlerjugen Divisions. Ive been playing since 2004. Ive got Midwar Italians(Bersaglieri), and Late War U.S. Para's, Grossdeutchland Armor Panzergrenadiers and Ive just started a 2nd SS Das Reich Panzergrenadier company. In Novermber the Budapest Campaign book will be released...more SS companies to choose from.

Really? Holy crap, I'm actually really psyched about that.

Not so much the SS, but Late War Hungarians, whoo!

Played my first (semi) game yesterday and I had a blast! Got my first company (SS - PanzerGrenadiers) and they are about to be painted.

Huge Thanks to Cesar and Mike for showing me the ropes yesterday... You guys are awesome, really great conversation and very patient I really appreciate it.

Let me share a thought, coming from a new guy in Miami. I grew up playing these games in NY in a small hobby shop (not unlike Sunshine but much smaller) with a group of friends I still keep to this day. We always had a good time but there were always people who made the games more arduous than they needed to be.... guys who eventually we avoided.

I gotta say my initial reaction to this group is really really encouraging... every single person I've met has been forthcoming with good information and a friendly disposition, I Don't get a bad vibe from ANYONE. I'd really like to compliment everyone on their demeanor, this seems like a great group of gamers and I look forward to participating with such great company.

Your quite welcome sir. Many a plastic sherman was spewing imaginary smoke thanks to you and Cesar. I'm glad you don't think we are big time assholes Smile

Hehe...

No worries Mike, glad you enjoyed your first game!

The SS Panzers are a good list to play with. I've seen them in many a competitive tournament and their special rules are pretty fantastic. You combine that with the awesome painting options available and history behind them, you've got a great force.

I forewarn you though that tactically they will be a challenge to play. You'll be short on troops almost always, and that always causes problems. Just keep it in mind.
