Ok. Played last night and I went with the "Plan B" list. While I like the list and I like the way it plays, I am going full bore on "Plan A." Brit Paras - MW.
I have found that the Brit Para list lets me play infantry, but also be aggressive. I am concerned with the relatively small size of the platoons (I am used to American Armored Rifles), but FV allows you to absorb a large number of shots without taking a ton of damage. I had a discussion with Rob (new player), who loves his American Paras. The issue with American Paras in MW is Tank Assault of 2. They don't get 3 until LW. Brit Paras however get Gammon Bombs, so TA 3 in MW!
I am fairly certain that at least one player will bring cavalry. This could be trouble for my guys - especially getting "run down" if they fail assaults. I hope two gun sections of 25pdrs (8 guns) plus all the special rules for Brit Arty will make Trigger and Flicka take an early trip to the glue factory!!
I am not worried about armor lists, as my playtest last week went really well and against a good opponent.
So now I need to get my units painting one way or another!!
