Anyone have Intel on any Christmas deals in the works? My government(wife) has authorized the funds to bring the boys home for Christmas. I would rather bring them all home and "leave no man behind", but I do understand if it gets all caught up in red tape at HQ(LBG)I will have to pick a few lucky troopers and spend the balance of funds elsewhere in other war departments(games).
Several Generals(K-man and Deb) have mentioned some possible items in the works, but I am running out of time as the governmentangry(who cannot understand why I need all the troops home at once)will kill the funds after the new yearshake, to pay off other war debt. - so its a use it or lose it deal.cry

Hmmm, wish I would've waited one more month to buy 'all in'. Here's to hoping that the coming deal might also benefit those of us who wish to merely bulk up their selection of troops but have no need of purchasing everything anymore because they pulled the trigger too soon on that one and missed out. whistle

We are adding a Squad Pack to both the US Paratroopers and the German Luftlande soldiers.

What is in the Luftlande Squad - 1 MP40 Leader, 1 Rifle Leader, 6 Riflemen, 1 Rifleman Assistant MG soldier and 1 MG42 soldier.

The Paratrooper Squad - 1 Thompson Leader, 1 Rifle Leader, 6 Riflemen, 1 Carbine Assistant MG soldier and 1 .30 Cal Browning MG.

Both of the Squads are being released for $99.95 each.

We were delayed for a bit due to a photography hiccup. The links will be available later today.

SMG Squad Pack
That's like getting a 'free' leader, isn't it?

More folks are realizing the fun really gets thicker when they can pick their troops and really customize a unit.

Of course this, and the extra map from Road to Carentan, will put things over the top on making SMG multi-player too.

This is good deal! I fear that my war chest won't allow that many troops this holiday season, but I am sure there will be some that can make it! laugh

Is that a temporary holiday offer or permanent?

Wife approved and Dorb tested. Merry Christmas to me, myself and I.
Went all in last night and now will wait for mini nirvana. Guess I'll fire up some "Brothers in Arms" games on the PC and practice the 4 F's - Find'em, Fix'em, Flank'em and Finish'em tactics just for fun while I wait.whistle

Same question here. Is this a permanent bundle or is it going away when the holidays are over. I am in a "sell before buying" austerity plan and will not generate that kind of revenue for at least 30 days,

I believe the current plan is to keep the squad bundle available.

I think that's a great idea for those who want to take the next step beyond DoD.

Indeed, it works in terms folks are used to hearing.

The only complication I've seen so far is terminology, where a couple times folks have used "squad" to mean the 4 figure 'team' that is how extra figs were originally sold (and I believe will continue to be sold for the time being).

So 4 figs = "team"
10 figs (including 2 Leaders) = "squad bundle."
