FOW Mid War, North Africa Themed Tournament

I'm about to head out the door for my second FOW tournament.   It's a 1485 point Mid War, North Africa themed event which will be run at Huzzah Hobbies in Ashburn, VA.  Google tells me its about a 2.5 hour drive from hear in St Michaels so I need to hit the road soon.

I'm taking a German Fallschirmjager list, which will have 2 of the three fellows pictured to the left.  The list consists of an

- HQ w/ Anti-tank rifle
- 2 full FJ platoons
- MG section
- Full mortar platoon
- Recoilless gun section
- a single Tiger
- Recon platoon (2 8 Rads)
- Nebs

The list gives me 8 platoons or 7 if I combine the MG's and recoilless guns into a point defense platoon.

I'm not sure about the wisdom of taking a single tiger over 3 make III's or 4 Marders.  The real reason is that Tigers just look cool on the table so this may be one of those situations where fashion wins over function!

Have a good time hope the Tiger snags a few before going down

Looks like a fun list. I think the key to running a single Tiger is don't leave it to do all the fighting. Your opponents will have a very tough time dealing with it in MW, and it will draw a lot of attention, so use that to support your infantry. Good luck!
