Ok, so I thinking of going to a tournament. I've checked some of the winning builds of 2011. It looks like that most players prefer the Lothar/beobachter army combo, to out artillery and out activate the opponent. These armies are legal, but it seems it pushes the gameplay to the metagame boundary.
Personally, I prefer mixed armies and objective based scoring. That is not always the case in tournaments. I definitely want to use the Allies, but I'm not sure that either of these armies can out duel the Lothar/Beobachtr combo or Gorilla/Zombie combo. Here it goes:
OZZ 117 + Tank Busters, Rhino + Grim Reapers, Steel Rain, 4 X 13 Foxtrot.
OZZ 117 + Tank Busters, Rhino + Grim Reapers, NCO Command Squad, 4 x 13 Foxtrot.
Do either of these stand a chance?
Lastly, I don't want to offend anyone regarding the cheese comments, its all in good fun as I'm concerned.
