Cassino Hype!

Post by KingdomCome on Thu Jun 02, 2011 9:23 pm

I don't know about you guys, but I'm stoked for cassino. Some neat armies are going to be available. The one I'm licking my chops for are the nisie (2nd generation Japanese American). Fearless vets that take motivation tests on 2+, they can try to charge into cc after being bounced back the first time, and they come with all the trimmings a normal US infantry division get! Get your silly fanatic Germans ready , the Nisie are coming!
British get a fearless vet Indian company and the kiwis finally make an appearance in the late war.
This should get good on June 11th!

The Panzergrenadier platoon that gets fortifications and Panthers that come in the 9th inning as a closer for a "significant points break" may be my new Jam.

The panzer grenadiers are confident trained with panther and tiger turret fortifications. That just silly.

I'm actually excited over the plastic urban rubble bases. My hungarians would look damn sexy on that.

An Elefant company served in Italy. Cool.

The hype is justified. What a great book! Every army is potent and look like a blast to play. The axis have a cool fortification structure available to them and loads of options. I'm sure most people will gravitate towards the German paras due to what's available to them, but the confident trained German outfit can be downright scary. It'll easily be double the size of almost any other German company and has access to scary turret bunkers. Say hello to an American sized army that can take trenches and are backed up by panther turrets!
On the allied side, I was surprised at how good they all look. The nisie are impressive, but I think the 91st cav are even more so. All the combat platoons and most of the weapon platoons are recon. The infantry platoons are scary good because of how flexible and cheap they are. Before the start of the game you can make switches to any rifle team to potent options; allowing you to tailor to what you're facing. For example: facing a Russian horde? Not a problem switch up to 5 ( of 9 stands) into lmgs. Do that to 3 infantry platoons for 275 each and you're looking at 75 shots down range. Nasty.
I haven't really looked at the brits yet so that's another post. But really who cares?

Just realized that my FJ's don't have any panzerfausts, only panzerknackers. I guess that is the sacrifice that I have to make for the +2 motivation checks.

@ Luis, I'm ready for your Russians!!!
