That's an old video, I don't think that's the starter set.

It's the same models that are in it.

I was thinking more of a paratrooper/elitist army than a horde.,,

There are a lot of ways you could do that. Most of the countries (US/UK/Germans/Finns) have lists for that. Here is a good place too check out easyarmy.com. Is there any other type you would want to run? Armor, Mech, Infantry, etc.

Just keep in mind that Late war is currently the most popular era to play. But, if you buy the right stuff you can play in multiple eras.

If you have any other questions, just start a thread about it. :D

With FoW you always want a balanced list with a bit of everything. You don't want to spam crap like in 40k. No one unit can do everything, you want some infantry, some tanks, some anti tank guns, etc. Also most if not all Paratrooper lists can take tanks as an attachment. But there are no Paratrooper list that are mechanized as well. Honestly you should just buy the starter box, it will have everything you need, and you can make several lists, also you get an army worth roughly 700-1200 points ( a decent sized game) depending on how you run the lists.

Since it's yankee para's and german grenadiers, does that mean that those armies models that aren't in the box will be the first things phased into plastic.
