Bagration German discussion
01:03:45 – We review the new book and command cards. There’s a lot to discuss and we cover all the new units and possible uses.
An Officer Answers – Bagration German edition
02:26:17 – Nicholas asks “In the previous edition (Grey Wolf) 3rd SS was fearless veteran, and 5th SS was fearless trained. The question I have is: will they be careful or stupid (aggressive)? Also, are the 5th SS getting their Panzer Canone rules again? It’s what makes panthers worth their cost.”
02:29:22 – Coxer asks “Which unit in the book is least likely to see the table top and why is it the StuH?”
02:30:00 – Bjarne asks “What cool formations are we going to get and which new command cards?”
02:30:20 – Matt asks “How do you think German Bagration forces will stand up out of theatre, against Western Allied forces?”
02:31:20 – Ben asks “How big should the pile of shame be? Or is the answer always “bigger”?”
02:33:00 – Stanten asks “Will we see options to take 3rd and 5th SS units? I don’t believe I saw an option for a token set so I’m gonna go ahead and assume no.”
02:33:55 – Weiss asks “Come the 78th Assault Division and the Panzerwerfer 42 come back and how many are there when they come?”
02:35:25 – Regan asks “Is it competitive versus the very strong Bagration: Soviet book?”
02:38:30 – Peter asks “Will we get SS pioneers? And how should I assemble them?”
02:39:10 – Dalan asks “Will the Germans make use of captured tanks in numbers greater than 1?”
02:3930 – Dan asks “Will we get cheaper tanks with lower skill (i.e., comparable to stats/points found in Bagration captured tank options)?”
02:40:40 – Dave asks “How are the Panzer IV/70 integrated into the book? New plastic kit shown off?”
02:40:59 – Scott asks “Is the GD Division in the book and a resurgence of the Luftwaffe?”
02:40:32 – Top Fan, William asks “Does Carius make an appearance, if so what does he do and how much does he cost?”
02:42:20 – Dominik asks “Will there be something better than the 2 x spammed infantry company from 116 panzerdivision XD ?”
02:44:20 – Jean asks “Does the 4.Pz Div get a Pz II Ausf L coy , unlike the 9.Pz DIv in the D-Day book?”
02:44:37 – Lucas asks “Which new infantry formations do we get? Anything of particular note?”
02:44:50 – Leigh asks “Will there be some SS formations in the new book?”

02:45:25 – William gets another one in and asks “What’s the cross check on the Hetzer?”
02:46:03 – Vincent asks “Is this book compatible with D-Day German (in other words: can I add Marder/Hornisse/Hetzer to my FJs?)”
02:47:20 – Nathan asks “Will there be a greater proliferation of panzerfausts for the Germans? If the Soviets can have up to 2 per sapper unit, surely all German infantry should be as well supplied, right?”
02:47:45 – Steven asks “What do you guys like most about the book?”
Shoot and Scoot (and hidden track)
02:48:45 – We talk about the upcoming Christmas Special where Shoot and Scoot take on Beyond The Foxholes in a pub quiz and we take another Dice of War dice and attempt to Shoot and Scoot.
