i think that Generalleutnant Fritz Bayerlein (German High Command 500pts plus) bears a

likeness to Curt Jurgens , who was in The Battle Of Britain , The Longest Day and second Steiner movie.


A Fine City!

The first thing I thought of when I saw Hans Gruber in this game was "Die Hard", where Hans (in Die Hard) is actually supposed to be German himself, despite being played by an English actor.

Gruber reminds me of Peter Cushing as Grand Muff Tarkin… he also played a couple of Nazis in his time, eg.

I think Kowalski is "Pvt. Gutowski" played by Richard Davalos from Kelly's Heroes.

You also forgot about Fredrich Von Der Heyde 😉

I'll have a go at some of these….


Kowalski is a very common Polish surname, the equivalent of Smith. There were therefore quite a few Kowalski's in the US army (including a Colonel Frank Kowalski) and the name always seems to appear in war films, usually as a minor character.


Sniper Bill Furlong might refer to Canadian Rob Furlong who held the record for the longest recorded sniper kill in Afghanistan in 2002 (since beaten by British sniper Craig Harrison in 2009). Seems an odd connection but a strange co-incidence otherwise.


Generalleutnant Fritz Bayerlein is a historical character, commander of the Panzer Lehr division (and also after the war he was technical advisor on "The Guns of Navarone" !).


Hans Gruber is the name of the bad guy in "Die Hard". It might also refer to Colonel Hans Landa in "Inglourious Basterds".

As a question why is Otto not in a tiger in the core box?


The fight has only just begun…

They propably did not want to put a Tiger in the core box, for balance reasons. Sherman vs. Tiger would have been an overkill. Sherman vs. Panzer IV was much closer match.


This is supposed to be a joyful occasion. Lets not bicker and argue about who killed who.

Thanks for this post. I must use these characters more in game.

Captain Duvall looks like Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall) from Apocalypse Now.

Von Kampz is Hardy Krüger when playing in A Bridge too far.

Some are just imagined by Alexandre Bonvallot ^^ Your work will be harder ^^ If I mind it, I will ask Alex to see your list.
