Fallschrimjagers: Supply Cannisters, Machine Guns, 5cm Mortars to start. The MGs and Mortars will be needed to make a full platoon. 8cm mortars to make a weapons platoon along with crew served MGs. Oh, didn't they have their own cool field guns too?
Oh, and we'll need some Aussies or Brits in tropical kit for them to fight, I've always wanted to game Operation Merkur. I believe your already set with the Matilda IIs.
The BAM FJs are based on those of the Ardennes period so would not use either the 50cm mortar or drop cannisters. But 80cm mortar and gun crews were on our list.
Alrighty, then. LW Fallschirmjager it is. Normandy and/or Ardennes.
1 - 4 x Jager w/MP40. In helmets. 2 in "NCO" type poses.
2 - 4 x Tankhunters (1 x 2-man Panzershreck team, 2 men /Panzerfaust)
3 - sMG42 pack - 3 Jager w/ static MG42
4 - 8cm mortar + 3 crew
5 - Gun crew (for Pak 40)
6 - 4 x Jager w/"other weapons" - 2 x Gew 43, 1 x Sten SMG, 1 x M1 Garand or M1 carbine.
7 - 3 crew plus the funky little ATG that they pull around on sleds
Really, really want packs 2, 3, 4 and 5. Please. Pretty please?
Ah, go on.
If they are based on Ardennes, then they *really* need MGs. Sorry for the mistake, the pics are kinda small. Did anyone still have FG42s that late in the war? So much for beefing up my Foundry guys...oh well, they have nobody but Home Guard to fight anyway.
And who wants to use Paras as regular old infantry?

I think most of the 'needed' FJ stuff is already coverd.
As for 'nice to have' figures I'd throw in the following
Thats all for now.
Hi guys - great stuff so far.
I think you might have misunderstood my intial post though. When I said we wanted to hear about our FJ range I was using that as an example. I meant we don't want to hear about new ranges - just gaps in ones we already make.
So feel free to keep the FJ comments coming but we also want to hear about the rest of the range (US airborne, Red Devils, Poles, SS, Finns, etc...)
