I'm really questioning the reasoning behind taking a sturmpionirere platoon, specifically the command squad and zombies.
Zombies just seem inferior to me. Why take zombies when you can take gorillas with Markus? They have similar damage output, but gorillas will be tougher at infantry 3, and have the advantage of being able to benefit from the blitzkrieg order. So thay'll have a threat advantage as well.
Sure, zombies are cheaper, but if you take too many units you fall victim to the initiative trap.
Zombies can only be take in sturmpioniere platoons, but the command squad doesn't even want zombies. It wants large squads f non-zombies to use its failsafe order most effectively. And taking a whole squad of zombies is counter-productive because you miss out on support units.
I'm really not seeing the use for zombies, or sturmpioniere platoons in general. Can someone give me a reason to lose out on Blitzkrieg?
