New Battle Strip



  • I haven’t spoken to WotC at all since early January when I requested replacement battle strips for both games I bought and tactical bombers. I 6 bombers for each game and a new battle strip for each game.

    The Battle strips are even printed right! 🙂 Altough, some of the bombers took a little beating in the mail, it is nice to have them.

    I wonder if there will be a video of a happy Hitler? 😉



  • Leave it to WOTC to complicate things.

    so how much is a little beating?

  • Well I got my missing china infantry in the mail today, though a surprise, packaged with it was 6 more Japanese Tact bombers a new battleboard.



  • Yep, finally got my replacements also!  New battle strip and 6 Jap tac bombers.  I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised how quickly they arrived.  Hopefully everyone else who is on the list begins to get theirs as well.



  • Got my Battle Strip and the 6 tactical bombers today along with a very nice letter from ‘Sam’ at WOTC.  An interesting sentence in the letter reads: “……While the game is only supposed to have 3 more Japanese tactical bombers than what you originally received, we’re tossing in an extra 3 because of the delay you had to experience…”  So, it looks like it was originally a packaging error rather than an analytical error.(?)



  • What is the email address for wizards? I have tried to use the one listed on their site, which appears to me to be just a webpage and not an actual email address (Email
    http://www.wizards.com/customerservice) and it doesn’t register?



  • I am assuming I have to sign up on their site and message their forum?



  • Yes you do have to sign up but you dont have to post anything on the forums.  You give them your email address, creat a user name, all that Jazz.  Just follow the link you posted and click on “email us”.  That should take you where you need to go.



  • Thank you mike!



  • No problem.  Always a pleasure to help out a fellow AA gamer!

    In each bag there is 1 bomber with bent wings. But there are six in each bag, so I am happy.

    I got my 6 Japanese Tac Bombers and my new battle strip.  The Tac Bombers show signs of stress on the wings, but they aren’t bent. The battle board has very bad impressions from the tails and gear from the bombers.

    Ditto. I had two of the six with bad wings. I’m good with 4 extra though. The packing was simply a plastic bag of 6 TBs, the battle strips that are more or less the same as before, and the letter from Sam in a plain 1/2 size manilla envelope.



  • Got my battlestrip and 6 tac bombers too with the same letter from sam (wow that dude/chick gets around). The battlboard is a little beat from the points of the tacs and 2 of the 6 have white tinge on wongs and tail as well but all are very much usable and I’m happy enough with it. Thanks to everybody else who helped make this possible with calls and e-mails. This is a great group of people.



  • I received my “corrected battlestrip” and additional Japanese tactical bombers but the battlestrip is still wrong as it doesn’t show the tactical bomber/tank or fighter combo as hitting at 4 or less unless I am mistaken.

    It’s a good start but…



  • ditto for me also, some bent tac bombers and some little impression on the strips.  Not a huge deal for me but still- these guys can’t even package the simplest things right. :x

    Well you do gotta know that stuff though. Like in the 1942 edition (and I’m sure earlier) artillary supports infantry but the strip doesn’t show that. I understand how that’d be useful but if you want one that shows that stuff I saw a really good 1 in one of these threads (maybe even this one) to print off

    Thanks forgot about the inf/art and mech inf/art combo.
