  • Coach, these are awesome, I am in to purchase at least 4 sets of these as soon as they are available.  Keep up the excellent work.
    Cheers 😄 😄 😄 😄



  • Wow. Those pieces are… perfect.

    I want 200 of the P40’s, please  😄

    FANTASTIC work “Coach”.  I’m looking forward to buying some of these units also as I just ordered a couple of your US Marine sets.  Just an observation, but it looks like the air transport is a C-46 Commandoe instead of a C-47 Skytrain.  Maybe I missed that in some of the forums(?).  I’m certainly NOT complaining though as I’ll be glad to have it as well as ALL of the other wonderful units you’re producing for us thankful A&A fans.  Thanks again for your SERIOUS effort, Doug.    “Tall Paul”.


  • Sponsor 2017 '13 '11 '10

    Yes, it is the C-46 Commando, since FMG is doing the C-47, I decided to do a different Transport. The C-46 was used to fly over the hump after the Burma road was closed.


  • Customizer

    “Coach”,

    The C-46 Commandoe also completely replaced the C-47 Skytrain units assigned to the 374th Troop Carrier Wing(5th AF) in New Guinea and later.

    These “transport” missions were considered as COMBAT missions and most were flown without fighter support.    “Tall Paul”

    Aw MAN!  Those look FABULOUS.  Can’t wait to order them myself.

    Hey coach, any ideas on a piece count yet (# of each unit)?  You once mentioned the whole US set would be about 50 pieces.  Here is my guess:
    4 each of all land vehicles
    4 each of all planes
    2 each of the ships
    10 each of the airborne infantry

    That would total 50 pieces.  Let me know how close I am.

    Early war Battleship should be 3-3-2 and take 2 hits and USA starts with.

    Early war tank is 2-2-2 armor that USA starts with.

    Escort carrier takes one plane, 0-2-2-10  one hit too.

    Tank Destroyer attacks or defends at 3 when enemy tank present otherwise a 2-2-2-5 unit. Either that or if it rolls a 1 the hit can go against tank or non- infantry land unit.

    Transport plane: costs 10 moves 6 is the only plane that can be used for Paratroopers. Carry’s 1 INF in combat move or 2 in NCM

    Truck unit not sure.

    Long range fighter is mustang

    other planes are replacement for OOB

    Hey Coach, I remember my first ride in a c-46 was from Indianapolis to MCRD in San Diego. No pressurized cabin. When I got off the plane my ears were plugged up to the point I could not even hear the drill instructer yelling. lol

    Good ideas for the piece stats IL.  Not so sure about the early war battleship though.  I know that it shouldn’t be as good as later models, but it just feels weird to me lowering the att/def to 3.  It’s like a 2-hit cruiser now.  Yeah, I know they were lesser armed than later models, and slower.  Another idea:  4-3-2 and take 1 hit.
    Either way you go, I think cost should be 18, just a little cheaper than more modern battleships.
    Perhaps trucks could be like transport planes but for land.  Carry 2 infantry 2 spaces NCM, 1 infantry 2 spaces CM.  No attack/defense value.

    Hey Coach, are you making the US set available in the dark green and olive drab?  Or was that just for the Marines?  If the latter, which color are you choosing for the USA set?


  • Sponsor 2017 '13 '11 '10

    US set will be done in olive drab like OOB color,
    If there is enough interest, and when I get FMG color confirmation, I will do in their color also.


  • Customizer

    I for one hope that Coach makes all US units in Dark AAP Marine green, since FMG’s USA dice is that same color and FMG has said in the past that the units will color match their dice. So Coach’s Dark AAP Marine Green = FMG upcoming USA Green.

    I would much rather have Dark green than Olive Green since I will be using Coach’s sculpts to supplement FMG’s sets. Am I alone here?



  • I’m with you, buddy  😄


  • Customizer

    Here’s an idea.  When FMG’s US set comes out, they will be making them in the same color as their combat dice, which is roughly the same color as the AAP Marine pieces, or HBG’s current Marine set.  HBG is also coming out with an olive drab Marine set.  With his USA supplement set, HBG is first doing olive drab but will make them in FMG’s color later on.  So, HBG’s USA supplement set should eventually also be availiable in both colors.

    Assuming this is the case, we might all get the regular US pieces from FMG and HBG in the dark green color and use HBG’s olive drab Marine set for US Marines in our games.  We will in effect be reversing the way we currently play.  That will be cool with me because I think I like the dark green color for USA better anyway.

    I hope my sales in the first two sets allow me to do two colors for the US set.

    Well, while I can’t speak for everyone else, I think you will do okay.  Your pieces are looking really cool and when some people get their first sets, they will probably order even more.  I’ve already orderd 5 of the dark green Marines and plan to order 5 sets of the olive drab Marines.  Will be ordering a LOT of the Axis Minors when they get in, especially black and grey.  Plus I already know that I will be getting 5 sets of the US supplement set and if you offer a 2nd color, then I will get 5 more.  The pre-production samples look fabulous.

    Hey coach, could we get a couple of close-ups on the battleship and escort carrier?



  • These look amazing.  When can we expect to be able to purchase them?


  • Sponsor 2017 '13 '11 '10

    US olive set is leaving today, I should have them in 10 -14 days.
    Minor set colors have finally been approved, allow 4-5 weeks.
    US set sculpts have minor revisions, they will then go to making mold.
    Colors have been approved.
    Probably 8 weeks away.

    WOW!  Three full sets all coming out within 2 months.  Way to crank them out coach!

    Man, you are going to be really busy filling orders.  On the plus side, that means lots of $$$$$$.
