Hey all! I recently started building an SSU army to use as my default army for my Tactics games. I'd simply like to have some feedback to know if my SSU will be competitive and give some hell to the enemy!
AXIS (original core set + expansions)
- 4 Medium Walkers (4 configs): Luther/Ludwig/Lothar/Loth
- Heavy Kommandotrupp
- Battle/Laser/Recon Grenadiers
- Heavy Recon Grenadiers
- Snipers/Observers Squad
Planning to buy soon: Heavy Anti-Tank Grenadiers (if I buy a SSU Heavy Tank).
ALLIES (original core set + expansions)
- 3 Medium Walkers (4 configs): Pounder/Hotdog/Steel Rain/Mickey
- Bazooka Joe
- The Chef
- Command Squad
- Corps Officers
- BBQ Squad/Recon Boys/Gunners
- Grim Reapers
- The Hammers
- Tank Busters
Planning to buy soon: British Commandos Kill Squad
- Airborne Transport copter + Chinese Volunteers
- Red Yana
- Medvedi (Command Squad)
- Drakoni (Commissars)
- Frontoviki (Battle Squad)
- Fakyeli (Close Combat Squad)
- Nabludatyel/Jnetzi (Specialists)
Planning to buy soon: Airborne Walker Transport (for the additionnal Walker), Ground Attack copter, Op. Hades (for Winter Child), SSU Red Guards Command Squad, SSU Red Guards Anti-Tank and/or Assault Squad and maybe 1 Heavy Tank.
With all this, should I be able to compete against the other 2 armies I have?
Complementary Question: How about in Warfare? Do I have 3 "balanced" armies?

Melting souls with cuteness since 2007
I'll say what i've said several times now.
Currently, the SSU are lacking VS the other two factions until the Aero KV and the ground attack helicopter are released (yes, they are currently available... but only in expansive premiums). They are lacking in anti-walker weaponry in larger games (it's less of an issue in smaller games).
Put an heavy walker against the SSU and they'll have a real tough time...
In Dust Warfare, the problem is much less. Warfare puts more emphasis on infantry over walkers, so it's impossible to field an almost "all-walker" force against the SSU, making them fare a lot better.
In Tactics, your SSU force would get slaughtered against opposing walkers. I'd get the KV walker at least (or the aero KV, but for it's current premium price + shipping you could have 4 KVs, which would be even better...)
The axis force... you got the zombies... the obvious next choice would be the axis hero pack for Totenmeister or Grenadier X. It's also lacking severely in anti-air weapons. Their infantry are going to get hammered VS the SSU choppers. Add the light or the heavy walker perhaps?
The allies force... are even worse IMO VS the SSU choppers. Add a Rattler or a light walker?
For warfare, your SSU would do "ok". Your axis and allies would still have almost no way to put the choppers down.

I just ordered: SSU Walker Transport, Axis Light Walker Heinrich, Allies Medium Walker Rattler and the Victory Square Monument...all in Premium.
I'm waiting for the SSU Red Guards to add some power against vehicules (Red Guards Antitank Squad).
Next buys: SSU Red Guards, Op. Hades and Warfare Hades Campaign Book.
