seems strange to me.. maybe TOs discretion?

They may have not decided yet. I noticed that too.

1420 late war... Going to be tough. Though I got to say, I've been having a lot of fun trying to make lists for it, really challenging. Glad to see early war went up a bit. Now I can truly run my fast tankovy horde.

3 elefants and a tiger might be a fun list.. lol, just cause no one would expect it..

StuHs for a little anti infantry lol,

no LW tourneys coming up any time soon though,

Ha ha... I'm starting to notice that both Andrew and I usually enjoy tank "heavy" armies...

Though he likes Heavy Tanks...
And I like a load of tanks.

Lol. I believe I understand why we play what we do... Infantry... *shrudder*

I do suspect that this year will be fairly mid-war intensive given that the point levels are so high.

Well, with those low points, my Free French army from the Italy books becomes viable

I was looking through the Fortress Italy books, you can field two units of 4 StuH42's in the Herman Goeing Aufklarungsschwadron List (Mechanized Recon Squadron).

The regular Herman Goeing Panzer Kompanie only allows one unit of 4 StuH42's.

Hmm... I've generally not touched Italy (in favour of the eastern front lists) but in these smaller points total they just might be more viable...

That actually looks like a pretty cool list,

Can motorcycles move and shoot MGsAt full RoF?

They are essentially Jeeps (ie: unarmoured tank teams) for rule purposes -- so yes. But, as such, they only get a 5+ save.
