Ok, they look great…but I’m still a touch disappointed with a couple of choices.
I thought FMG said from the start that the PZ III was already set to be in this? Instead we get two heavy tanks? The WW2 game did this with the Tiger and Maus already and IIRC it was not an overly popular move. I had thought (but I certainly may have been wrong) that part of the point behind 2 tanks was to allow some house rule variety. But it seems the Germans are stuck with “heavy” and “even heavier and slower” as choices.
I’d have to agree - two heavy tanks is really boring. Considering the Germans manufactured only 569 King Tigers to 13,500 PZIVs and 16,500 PZIIIs I would have though that the PzIV or PzIII would have been a better option for the “common” german tank and the Tiger1 would have been the alternate or upgrade version.
Considering the low production number of King Tigers I would speculate that Field Marshall Games is going to make more King Tigers than the German did!
This won’t stop me from buying the pieces as the quality of the entire scult set looks good - I’m just dismayed that after two years of comment these are the two German tank options.
