    A comparison of the different OOB colours along with the painted Italian ship.

    I think Italy stands out much better from the other nations with this colour.

    Again, I used avocado green fast dry from Krylon.

    Cheers

  • i really wanted keep it consistent with each other. i think im going to have to buy some half tracks from TT.

  • Customizer

    Good luck finding them.  The Half-tracks from Table Tactics come from their Central Powers set.  Last time I was checking out Fair Play Games, they were sold out of the Central Powers sets and Jack didn’t have plans to make more of them.

    If you’re going to paint the pieces, then just use the Italian OOB mec units.  Or use the trucks from Battle of the Bulge.


  • Nice pic comparing the BBs.The Littorio really blows the others out of the water!The Armada was very interested in aquiring a trio of these also,for a little twist in some naval action in the Med.

    While waiting on the FMG Italian pieces that includes  trucks I purchased some Russian Mechanized inf. from coach and painted them the Italian color to use as trucks in my North Africa game. They look a lot like old time trucks of the period.

    Hey jim010,
    Do you dullcote your OOB pieces?  Their color seems to be somewhat muted, especially the French battleship.  My OOB French pieces are a much brighter blue.

  • Customizer

    Might just be the light.  I didn’t do anything to the OOB units.


  • Still waiting on these dying to get them. I hope Jeremy didn’t lose my order.


  • @GoSanchez6:

    I’m still waiting for my Italians too.

  • Customizer

    Don’t worry guys, I’m sure Jeremy has your orders ready to go as soon as the Italians get here.  I had him check on my order which I made WAY, WAY, WAY back in last November and he assured me it was ready to go.  Just waiting on the shipment is all.  So if my order, made long, long ago, is still active, surely your orders are also on file.

    I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but I got a LOT of stuff comin’ to me this week.  There is my order for Italian Combat Units, two different orders of new Combat Dice (including those sharp black German dice), and I have an order for the complete War At Sea:  Surface Action set from Gaming Advantage which is shipping this week.  Man, what a week.


  • Thanks for the reassurance Knp I just can’t wait to get them.

    @Viracocha:

    …Is that HBG’s map?

    As for the map, no.  The map is not the one available from HBG.  It is from an entirely different game.  Although, it may be available through HBG at some point.   😉

    That would be lovely 😄

    Almost.  Considering the MILLIONS of little men produced, there is always a possibility that in the sorting phase there may be some flux.  Due to this I changed the site description to the following:

    Each National Set includes the following:

    Infantry (Two Sculpts - Rifle and sub-machinegun Infantry)
    Artillery
    Armour (Two Types - Light and Heavy)
    Fighters
    Tactical-bombers
    Bombers
    Submarines

    Battleships
    Aircraft Carriers
    Transports
    Half tracks (Armored Cars)
    NEW
    Commander Units
    Transport Planes
    Trucks

    Each National set will include 150 UNITS!!

    (Due to the large QTY of units included, actual quantity of each unit may vary)

    So Jeremy, just out of curiosity, how many sets did you actually order be produced?


  • FMG do you know when HGB will get their new shipment?

    Hi

    I think it is best that it is a specific, the quantity of each unit when ordering a set. So you know what a set actually includes of units. So we don’t end up like with the OOB pieces, there the quantity did vary, someone got 6 Tac Bombers, while others got 8 Tac Bombers and so on. I think this is very important. I don’t won’t to end up with example 10 infantry and 12 Transports. I want to know what a set does include/the count of each unit, so I know what to expect and paid for. It also would make it easier to order extra FMG pieces from Historical Bordgaming. Also, will these set still include a special surprise/units? Anyway, I really looking forward for the units and combat dice.


  • I’m starting to wonder if I should have not pre-ordered my Italian units from FMG and just bought them from HBG.

    I think I may just do that with future units.  😞

  • TripleA '12

    Can those of us who have received their FMG Italian Combat Units please be kind enough to post a complete breakdown of the pieces included in their set? I for one am a little concerned about this latest development about the varying numbers of pieces in the set.

    FMG Jeremy - can you please confirm when you changed the wording on the website, as I was not aware of this? When I placed my order last October I was under the impression that I would recieve the quota as originally stated/intended.

    Thank you everybody.


  • Here people go freaking out again.

    Actual quantity MAY vary from set to set due to human error.  You can never ever guarantee that the person bagging a set of pieces together may not put in one too  many infantry, or miss a tank.  It’s just the nature of human beings handling the sorting.

    I’m sure that the sets will almost entirely include the specified amounts.  It’s likely just been changed because you cannot in any way guarantee it (for reason stated above).

    This is what I got with one exception. I got six extra dive bombers. Mistakes are bound to be made by those doing the packing.
