RangerDane and I started playing the Peiper's Charge Scenario for Flames of War recently. This is one of the many historical scenarios that Battlefront has but out on their website. Take a look under the "Hobby" tab and then look under missions. On the left side of the page is a LOVELY list of historical goodness.
This scenario represents Peiper's mad dash to the Meuse during the Battle of the Bulge. The scenario can be played as one MASSIVE 3 table long game or 3 single table iterations. We went with the single table version since we were playing at our FLGS and were limited by space.
The scenario briefing gives maps and army compositions for each of the 3 games that make up the scenario.

This does go to show that even if you don't have the exact unit, you an come up with a work around...so there is no reason to stay away from trying one of these scenarios ;-)
