In the article about Lori's Lads, The One Week Army the AAR includes reference to our German Early War army. The Third Infantrie Companie, 19th Infantrie Regiment, 7th Infantry Divisionen.

Tonight I was building the various army lists for the up-and-coming Monster Marine Force - an army suitable for FoW, IABSM, and PBI - and happened upon the Early War German PBI list. This got me to thinking that someone might find use of these lists, so I have uploaded it in Excel spreadsheet format.

If you use it or check it out, let us know. We've got a lot of army documents laying around that we can clean up and put up with this one.

Our thanks to Peter Pig and the RFCM group for their development of the PBI rules, they have provided us with many hours of enjoyment. Note that PBI doesn't generally allow an entire company to be fielded, and things are abstracted a bit, so comparing this list to an historical TO&E will only make your head hurt when you get to platoon level (there are only two infantry platoons and they're closer to squad size than platoon size).

Without further ado, here is our list for our early war German PBI supported infantry company: Company List
