Well so far, it looks like 3 Axis, vs 3 Allied players.  Which is not bad.  Hopefully a couple more will sign on.  As of yet, noone seems to want to poke the hornets nest and play the Brit Paras.  Any takers???? ;D

I Company, 6. Fallschirmjager Regiment reporting for duty.

How many points of troops should I have painted by the time the campaign starts?

I downloaded the Airborne assault rules from the website at Battlefront.  So I'll be ready to give them a try this coming week.  The rules work for all Airborne or gliderborne infantry forces.

Sure, now that I will have the 1500 pnt list ready to go.  Also, those rules I discovered are for midwar Airborne Operations.  So I'm going to assume that by using the Airborne rules in D+1 will be more relavent to late war.  We can hash it out Thursday.  Also, I have some German roster questions for you and Tommy to answer hopefully.  My Kraut army seems to have gone in a new direction.  :o
