A German NCO

Unread post by Audacity » Mon Feb 18, 2013 3:03 pm

Here are my new German NCOs. They are identical models, except that one is wearing his cap and the other his helmet, from the Plastic Soldier Company late war Germans set.

For my direct gaming community, he will become an instantly recognizable unit in our AAM games.

Now I'd like help to develop his card. What ideas do people have for his point cost, marksmanship and special abilities.

From the PSC. I set it into a blob of hot glue to give it a usable base for gaming

How about
Feldwebel - Soldier - Commander - Cost 9 points
Speed - 1 Def 4/4
AI - 9/5/-
AV - 2/-/-

Abilities
Limited Range - 2
Close Assault 8
Steely Resolve

Command Abilities
Init +1
"Hunde wollt ihr Ewig Leben" - During your movement phase this unit and a German Soldier in the same hex can move into an adjacent hex containing an enemy unit and attack with +1 to each attack die. This movement ignores defensive fire. This unit and the Second unit get -1/-1 defense until the end of the next turn.

I tip for the bases, use black buttons you get at fabric stores. The come in different sizes and colors and are pretty cheap.

I agree that Germany should have a NCO.

:bowty: The buttons are a nice base. Here's a few I made for PSCo. and Wargames Factory figures.

I did a NCO card under the D-Day unit creation contest awhile back if you are interested looking at that...

I just popped over to the Forumini and cast my vote. It looks like its going to be hard to get a consensus with votes all over the place. IMO card are very much a personal choice and everyone has different tastes.

Here's the poll link: http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/about37558.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


FYI - Posting links to the Forumini here on the Underground is not a problem. We haven't drawn any lines in the sand so its all good. :D
