I like this idea. I will make cards with these army lists and pull them out for random encounter generation. Weaker force will defend, if equal they will chase both to objective.

I love those Polish Calvalry. If you set them up right they can get into any hex by ignoring the disruption and then use the Hand to hand to kill the target. They are great for killing fuel and ammo dumps. :P

Polish cav are awesome. I have 5 of them (because I like the Poles), and they really help beef up my Polish army. With some armored and infantry support these guys can just run up to those Germans and kill them off, while the AT guns, armor, and infantrymen help kill any other enemies at medium or long range.

Bumped for george s. rommel to find easier. He is trying to teach a friend & having "Stumbling Blocks" with things....we have to walk before we run.....I'm still learning the fine intricacies of this game, the wonderful expandability of the system with new & custom units....I'm thinking of my Blackshirt Autoblinda Commanders...the use of AAAF cards for my airplanes....."Flying Tiger" P-40's are WAY fun....Navy Corsairs in 1942....."Mustang Ace" in 1943.....P-38 Ace........Folgore Ace with "Agility"...."Steely Resolve" 109 E Ace....oh yeah, fun stuff.

One of the hard things about building armies is anticipating planes. Will your opponent build one and should you? Should I at least build an AA gun? I hate getting caught without some form of anti-air when my opponent builds a plane or two.
