Four Star Generals: Week 2 – The Lists

Share on TwitterShare on FacebookPin It on Pinterest

The four-star generals have been spotted across the headquarters with paint and clippers in hand. We’ve managed to corner them, and get an insight into what they’re building for their first few games later on in the month.

Major General Gramaglia

For my first month, I’m hoping that my LMG squad can hold down objectives whilst my SMG squad can help to clear out any difficult resistance with the assistance of my armoured car. Later on in the campaign, I’m hoping to mould my Soviets into a force of rock-hard veterans, rather than the stereotypical horde of conscripts.

I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the fearsome late war heavies, but the prospect of pitting them against late war Germans is pretty daunting.

Generaloberst Westerman

In the first month I’m going to have a squad of infantry in a truck with the first lieutenant and the plan is to rush the objective and make use of the German Blitzkreig special rule to try and hold the objective with the armoured car and another squad of infantry to provide cover with the medic reviving any casualties suffered..

I’m quite looking forward to the later months as it allows access to the big cats! I’m a bit worried about how my force will hold up in the early and mid-war, as those KV-1s and 2s will be tough nuts to crack.

Major General Strange

For my first starting force, I’ll be using a mix of SMG squads and regular infantry to attempt some classic fireand manoeuvre tactics, whilst a T-26b light tank will give theforce some much-needed punch.I’m looking forward to the upcoming games and to get a grip on the basics and try some advanced tactics.

Unit Type: Unit Name: Upgrades: Total Cost:

General Hind

My first month will consist of  BEF sections who will move up under the support of mortar fire and a Mark VIc Light Tank which will support my Infantry with its light autocannon.

True to British form my force will evolve in the later months, matching the change in tactics, the introduction of more elite formations and better armour and weapons. I am somewhat nervous as British weapons and armour often lagged behind both German and Soviet forces up until the late war.
