My AAA Command Center Bunker


  • Customizer

    Here are some pics of the start of my AAA command center / bunker / man’s room(missing the beer fridge…lol).  Much more to do but this is the start.  Notice the electronic IPC chart to keep track of our IPCs without having a board on the table that can get knocked around.  Also a battleboard on display for a reference on the attack and defend stats for each units.

    Table was built to support the new upcoming AA Global game.

    I think a close up the Rye on the table is in order… Lots of men died for a drink of rye…

    Currently it is just a image that I created in paintshop and has multiple layers which can be moved around.  Soon we will have a web page to keep track.

    Looks rad! Yes, I know I want one…

    One tip- More pieces - less or no chips = extra radness. This half the point of our own maps! Print it big, buy a gagillion minis, and never look at chips again.

    Here’s my pic of IL’s 1942 map without needing chips. Never needed any the whole game! It was great.

    Thats great!

    Now you need my Supreme map printed out :roll:

    Twisted had the great idea of using the AAP40 (grey) ANZAC units for all the Neutrals.

    He is also working on a special project for this game to calculate the IPCs?  But I will let him reveal that himself when the time comes.

    Playing in the Twisted Bunker almost makes AAA a sport!



  • Definitely 1 sharp bunker!

    All it needs now is the hotties with the croupiers like the RAF used.  😄

    I used to run a Similar Bunker, as sporting in deed.  I really like the Electronic Displays.

    I’m noticing your basement is unfinished…  Dare I say, it wouldn’t take to much to complete the job?

    Where abouts your live?  A few weekends of work and minor investment, would complete your house basement, and take your bunker to an unprecedented and undiscovered plain.

    Just imagine putting up the dry-wall, getting a nice gray finish (Looks stunning trust me), doing some old-fashioned millwork.  Paint the doors steel. Setup some old radio equipment.  You could do a mural, or atleast put some posters up.  Better than Insulation, poly, and stick frame. 😛

    A few ammo crates full of any kind of food/candy you can imagine, a surrond sound system with 1000+ oldies and classical battle music playing.  And a fridge with nothing but Beer, Coke, and Red-Bulls.

    I’ve got lots of flags, antiques, and nick-nacks locked away in a storage facility I need to give away.  We should talk.  Pm me.

    Definitely less chips would be cool but this map has over 150 territories and 140 sea zones compared to 60 territories and 64 sea zones in AA42 so it was a little difficult.  This map is already 6 feet in length and with double the amount units it was so difficult putting units on territories without putting them in the water or crossing another territory.  Unless I print it to fit my basement then maybe I won’t have to use chips.  I have IL’s map of AA50, which is beautiful by the way (thanks IL!), but this is a completely different map created by Deaths Head 420.

    I am definitely looking at completing my bunker but I am putting it together bit by bit.  A lot of your ideas was exactly what I was thinking about doing.  Although, you have additional ideas that I am very interested in.  I will definitely PM you to pick your brain.  Thanks!



  • Maybe some day we can throw my AA50 table in there for fun? (you know, when it’s finally completed in something like 2032!)

    Rorschach…  How is the table and 3D board coming along?  Any updates?

    Good ideas Gargantua. 🙂 I’d like to add a few ideas as well.

    The walls should have propaganda posters: at least one poster from each major participant. The posters should be calls to action or calls to victory, not posters intended to vilify the enemy.

    American propaganda posters:
    Poster 1
    Poster 2
    Poster 3

    Canadian poster:
    Canadian poster 1

    German posters:
    Poster 1
    Poster 2
    Poster 3

    Soviet posters:
    Poster 1
    Poster 2

    British posters:
    Poster 1
    Poster 2
    Poster 3

    Japanese posters:
    Poster 1
    Poster 2

    In addition to the propaganda posters, there should be a few pictures of generals and admirals, such as General Patton, General von Manstein, Admiral Nimitz, and Admiral Yamamoto. You also need MP3s of WWII era songs, just to add a little extra period flavor. 🙂
