Hi all,

Does anyone have some suggestions on how to build the U.S. in the intro (Normandy) box out into a nice 500 point army? I've worked up one for the Germans, but I'm struggling with the U.S.

Thanks!

I have the Normandy box and started collecting a US force after it. I bought a box of rangers, .50 cal, Sherman, Greyhound, M10 tank destroyer, 3x .30 cal team. Not sure if this is the cheapest way didn't really check the starter forces boxes.

I think the ranger box is very much bang for the buck. Since they lookjust like regular US infantry but the box comes with a flamer but sadly no LMG. So with it you can do Rangers and engineer squad.

Hope this help

Interesting.

In only have the base book right now, but I'll try to look at the U.S. book to see if I can work out a good list from there.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Wow 500pts for the Normany starter set? That seems forced to me, but I am very new to this.
I was happy to build forces for each side for 330pts. (328 vs 326).

I used boltaction.easyarmy.com to build my forces.
