what would you recommend I use for these new powers. I have AA 1942 AA pacific 1940 and risk

I use German units painted a different color for the Axis Minors and
American units painted white for Neutrals


Thanks but I don't know about painting my pieces I just think I'll use risk infantry and canons for artillery. I also use Polish Calvary
any ideas on the stats for them.

yea thats what i will do. but under the rules you can only rebuild the units each neutral came with, so all four of them must be different colors so as not to have more units that they came with...


so... what color for finland, romania, bulgaria, and hungary?

Light Grey for Romania

Dark Green Bulgaria

Well, off white or cream for Finland, since the neutrals are white, I was staying away from that color, the light grey for pro axis neutral ate a color off the Germans, the light green. , a shade off the Americans, I am still using panzer grey for Vichy France, and two different blues for the French, orange for the Dutch, matches neutral roundel, I am going to use the light maroon Russians from Europe for Mongolia (are they a stand alone neutral or pro someone?)

I have made additional armies for this game and need to paint them so I can try this scenario. I need to print out the map also.

I made a complete set of new roundels including tokens for Airborne, Waffen SS and Shock Armies ( remember they each can have up to 6 of these)

I have not made the rules for how these come into being. I think it will be you can assign one per turn and if you lose it in combat you can replace freely as long as not more than one appears ( max 6 in any case)

Also, looking at Brazil's naval setup i think the DD's should be split ( one each sea zone)

I can reduce the roundels in size ( say to .5 inch)  if you feel aesthetically they look too large.

Finland needs a change in setup, divert one inf to Lapland from south.  Also, Defending units in Scandinavian nations get a +1 ( Russia will attempt to maul them on R2). Might even give them a fortification adjacent from Leningrad territory in setup.

Have not sorted out the Soviets income basis until at war... to be done

Map clarification Kerch Peninsula: You can cross the straight only of you control the other side... no shortcuts to Caucasus. You must fight over Rostov-On-Don as true "gateway to the Caucasus"

WIll the new roundels be placed under the infantry units?

I agree, split the destroyers for Brazil.

Yes, I think the roundels are too big, I am going to print out the map today and lay it out and see for myself. (48" X96")

I agree with all the "straits" rules you have.
I totally agree with no units in Russia, only lend lease.
I hate when Japan boogies towards Moscow, I agree, they need to have their hands full in the Pacific, with Oil rules and lesser values for them to land grab in Asia, it will chnage their thinking.
I like the changes in tank values, both Japan & Italy had no more than medium tank but mainly a light tank compared to the other countries.

OK, change in colors.

France - Blue
Free French - Sky Blue
Vichy - Use the Blue again after France falls for the Vichy.
Pro Axis Neutrals - Dark grey (not Panzer Grey)
Pro Allied Neutrals - Light Olive green
Neutrals - White

What type of neutral is Mongolia?

The resources are distributed much more historical, which denys the Soviet all those perks of running nonsense to Moscow. She can just focus on getting her victory conditions ( 18 VC points).

China and eastern Russia are mostly barren of war materials ( though the Soviets did have oil center in Kamchatka but very small). This is why in nearly every game Japan blows up to 40+ IPC and Germany lags behind. That is impossible. In this Germany/Italy are the hammer and Japan is a proper anvil.

Yes, Japan must go where the oil is, they are totally dependent on it.

no its vichy. The allies had to invade it and fight the french, so its not really free french either.

Also, in Finland they should control Viipiri at start and make a rule that if they lose the war, they cede it to the Soviets as a prize. I don't want Finland getting wiped out before Summer 1941.

Semi neutral Russia must have restrictions on the manner of how it can violate neutrals before Germany attacks.

Link to Rulebook?

I think some of the non round roundels will have to be smaller to fit on a 3/4" round label.
I can check and let you know the sizes I used if you want me to, it will probably be Tuesday though.
Again, thanks
