Default Fanning The Flames of War!

ok so my club now has the main rulebook and fortress europe book, my friend's army so far is a german grenadier platoon and 1 tiger tank. today i bought my first U.S. parachute rifle platoon and i'm really excited to be going into this game. my one question is if parachute rifle platoons get tanks, because i'll need heavy stuff to take out my friend's tigers. If they cant have good enuff tank hunters my other idea is to get the devil's brigade and have my 1 paratrooper platoon as support. i just read about those guys and i like them because they're a joint american-Canadian army so i could have fun using them as my people. (Canada!) i looked at their PDF on the flames of war website and they seem to have pretty much any thing you cud possibly want in support options. could anyone give advice/tips on these armies?

although I despise the filth called flames of war"hammer", you might wanna wait longer than 1 hour and 18 minutes before giving up, I'm sure there are some people who for some reason actually play it.

Hey 144th,
Yeah, there is not much FOW traffic through here.
That seems to be the case for most 40k boards.
You probably already found the podcasts at:
http://www.whatwouldpattondo.net/
While not as busy as the official FOW bulletin board,
There is some FOW traffic on:
http://www.dakkadakka.com/
Let me warn you, there are loades of 40k blogs where fellows are dissecting broken rules and min/maxing their army lists. The FOW Bloggers mostly just have pictures of their figures and talk about how much fun they had gaming last weekend.
Like:
http://campcromwell.blogspot.com/
http://rgmb-stonebridge.blogspot.com/
http://guderianismyhomeboy.blogspot.com/
http://themonkeythatwalks.blogspot.com/
I hope that helps.

The more novels I read about Space Marines, the more I am convinced that they are simply undersized Ogryn with better armor saves.
