I’ve been looking forward to getting the new Italy books ever since they were announced and even more so when I discovered that the next global campaign run by WWPD would be Italy based.
I’d put my FJs to one side to focus on Soviets lists in Desperate Measures, but now its arrived it’s time to lightly dust off the FJs.
The number of options is certainly good, and now I can run an Italy list with with the LW German player’s essential PanzerFausts (don’t leave home without one).
|My Entire FJ Collection|
Here’s my initial thoughts on a list…please leave comments below on any improvements you think could be made.
Taking the Green Devils, so core and weapons platoons pass morale checks on 2+
HQ w Fausts
2 Big platoons with Cmd Faust
Mortars for smoke and pinning (bearing in mind their short 32″ range)
2 Light guns
2 Nebs (for more smoke)
3 Flak 38
3 Marder IIIM
3 Marder II
3 Pak 40
So, being able to take 2 lots of Marders is what I’ve been waiting for…I really like the amount of AT I can fit in this list. In my very limited experience of Marders, I found them less survivable than Pak 40s, I think i’ll end up relying on storm trooper rolls to keep them from being shot up too much.

I can’t see them being a particularly competitive list, but they’ll see me through the campaign and who knows…perhaps I’ll finally learn how to use them.
If I do change the list at all, it’ll probably be to squeeze in a third infantry platoon.
Thanks for reading
