Default Buying a Death Korps Army

Hey everyone, I was looking for some suggestions on what to buy for a Death Korps Army. I have about 348 to spend (Close to $500.00 USD). I am not really sure what to buy. Any suggestions? I really like the Riders btw. Horses with Masks is just too cool to pass up.

What I could suggest is purchase models you like first, and maybe in the future you could go for a full army? Since you like the look of the Riders, why not purchase them? Instead of blowing all those Euros away in one go, purchase one squad/model at a time.

What are your ideas/thoughts?

I am liking this stuff:

(2) IA-DKK-R-006 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG DEATH RIDERS SQUAD 48.95 (97.90)
IA-DKK-I-034 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG COMMISSAR 2 8.80
IA-DKK-C-005 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG COMMISSAR TANK COMMANDER 4.90
IA-DKK-I-027 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG COMMAND HQ SQUAD 25.45
IA-DKK-I-024 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG COMMAND SQUAD 21.55
IA-DKK-I-001 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG INFANTRY SQUAD ADVANCING 34.25
IA-DKK-I-002 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG INFANTRY SQUAD FIRING 34.25
IA-DKK-I-022 DEATH KORPS OF KRIEG MORTAR SQUAD 41.10
IA-DKK-T-025 HEAVY ARTILLERY CARRIAGE WITH EARTHSHAKER CANNON WITH CREW AND TROJAN 102.75

About 370.95 worth.

This has two troop choices and a HQ, plus a bunch of goodies. I would love to have more artillary though...

Good choices, if you want more Artillery, you could take out the Earthshaker, and go for the Thudd Gun Battery (3 artillery pieces for 78.30), or even the Heavy Mortar Battery (3 artillery pieces for 70.45) - but these take up Elite choices for the Korps.

Thanks for the ideas. Those sound like some better choices. Well when I get them, I will be sure to posts some WIP pics.

That gives you 53.80 to play with, maybe a heavy weapon squad and an extra heavy weapon team, so all your squads will have heavy weapons?
This would be 3-4 extra, but well worth it and if you can find the money for one extra weapon team, you can use the extra men from the 4 infantry squads to form a 5th "free" squad

Anyways, thats what I would do

Unless you just want to play apocalypse, then I'd just buy all the Rough Riders I could afford and field a cavalry army
