My wife and I have been playing through the scenarios; we started with the Operation Blue Thunder Campaign, and last night finished off the Victory Bridge campaign. The way we do it is that I paint a unit for each side, and then we play the scenario using only painted units, including the newly painted ones.
The latest units I painted were the command squads, I wouldn't normally add them into a 130 pt game, but I figured it wouldn't put me at a disadvantage if we both did it, and it would be fun to teach my wife the new command squad rules. In the end, the command squad won me the game very quickly.
My Allied force consisted of the command squad, the Hammers with Rhino attached, the Gunners, and Blackhawk. My wife played with the Axis command squad, the observer squad, the laser grenadiers with Sigrid attached, and Lothar. I was playing as the attacker - our goal was to get points by killing the other's units, but I could get extra points (unit AP *2 by getting a unit to the other side of the board.)
She won initiative on round one and told me to go first. I moved in Rhino & The Hammers (I still think that sounds like the name of some 80s rock band) to the far side of the building closest to my end of the table. We each then alternating putting our units onto the battlefield, but when I brought in my command squad, I attempted to use them to reactivate my Rhino squad. I succeeded, and moved them 4 more spaces, putting them into the building on my opponent's side of the board.
On round 2, I won initiative. My Hammer/Rhino unit was only 4 spaces away from the other side of the map. I moved them to the other end and they came off the board. This immediately gained me 96 points (their AP cost times 2). I only had 82 points of troops left, leaving it impossible for my opponent to win the game. We still played it out for fun, but I had won the game at the beginning of round 2 - the fastest game I've ever played.
Anyway, just thought that was interesting, and kind of fun actually - it was a surprise to me that the command squad actually were worth their point value in a match with so few units, but they certainly won me the game where it would have been much more difficult without them. Getting a lucky roll on their activation didn't hurt either. :-)
