I have been wargaming for 10 years in which time I have finally settled on two eras, Napoleonic and WWII, both in 15mm (1:100). Most of my ramblings will be about gaming in these two eras. An attempt will be made to record my wargaming interests, building of armies, ideas, interests and hopefully some games played.

21st Panzer (overview of required figures etc.)

I'm going to use this blog as a note pad for this Kampfgruppe so I've added notes in green to help me keep track of whats required. This is a "work in progress" blog and will be updated as I purchase items or complete units.

I am trying to base this force on Von Luck's Kampfgruppe but with alterations/additions to give a more options when bringing to the table for pickup games.
I've have collected information on the 21st from numerous sources and there are differences between each source. Some major some minor so I feel at this point I can pick and choose units but also add in some that might have been combined into the Kampfgruppe at different points in the campaign.

I have roughly followed the historical make up of each unit were I can but also kept an eye on Rapid Fire's basic unit make up so as not to create a force too out of touch with my gaming opponent. Having gamed with Rapid Fire rules v.1 and used its supplements to create units. I am also trying to resolve issues from following the new suggested unit make up with in v.2 and it subsequent supplements. Also considering that I have been wanting to build this force for some time I am shocked at how far I am away from getting it completed. Really do need to get my finger out on this one.
