    We are thinking of doing the US Supplement Set in additional colors and would like to know your interest in this. There would still be a proper UK set next year, but this could be made very quickly reusing the same sculpts.


  • depending on what units are going to be included in the UK set if there are Canadians a nice forest green would be nice, plus for FEC the celery green would work out perfectly.


  • What about yellow-green?  That would be my first choice, for use by Nationalist Chinese, and perhaps also some other US-aligned neutrals/ minors…

    I really like this idea


  • I would like to see British tan and Anzac grey just so I can play global until the proper British set comes out.

    My view is exactly the opposite on this: just get the proper UK set out for the UK (and Commonwealth) stuff.  This set in alternate colors makes more sense for US-allied minors.  Another idea: French blue and/ or light blue for Free French units, who used a good bit of US equipment.  (e.g., Free French Stuart tanks were the first allied units to enter Paris… closely followed by Free French Shermans.)  For UK and Commonwealth stuff, I’ll probably stick with oob stuff until HBG has their own sets.  I can’t really think of anything in the US supplemental set that I’m all that keen on getting in UK colors except maybe a CVE (and I’m using classic carriers for this now) and M7 Priests (which I’d probably wait on anyway to see if the proper UK set has an even better Sexton SP.)  hmm… OK, well, maybe the Stuart too, but that’s a low priority for me.  They didn’t really use many, if any, Hellcats.  There’s already plenty of UK-color Shermans out there…  While all of the planes in the US supplemental where used by UK and/or Commonwealth forces, none really adds that much to the UK line-up, especially seeing as they already have four oob air options now, including a pretty decent P-40.


  • agreed different colored Us sets aren’t really needed

  • Customizer

    I would also like to see forest green Canadian pieces to match FMG Canadian dice if not in this set then in the uk set.


  • @Lunarwolf:

    Well, just to make sure that I’m clear, I WOULD like to see at least on more shade of green for the US supplement for use by neutrals/ minors/ Nationalists.  I just don’t see the need for UK- or ANZAC-colored US troops.  For a 3rd US color I’m open to the light green or the yellow-green that you guys use for neutrals or to the UK light green from the old Europe set. The yellow-green is my top choice, though.

    I’d like to see Canadian pieces to match FMG dice, too.  I’d probably wait for the proper UK set, though.


  • Hey Variable could you show a picture of your USA set in Olive next to the OOB USA pieces. Thought about buying some of the Olive to supplement my OOB wanted to see how close the colors matched. You may have done this already I apologized for not seeing it. Thanks Man

  • Customizer

    There pretty close. Not perfect but 98% there. Not noticeable unless your closely examining them. I seriously wouldnt worry.


  • Coach and Variable just make the all the colors listed above,  I will buy complete sets.

    Me, too. I love this idea.


  • I say go with the current UK Tan, Anzac Silver, the current Russian Red/maroon/brown (whatever you want to call it), and OOB French Blue.

  • Customizer

    Yeah, I like all the colors listed as well. I also like Yavid’s idea of molding them in French blue. Not sure what I personally would use them for, but I think they would look cool.

    Well, seeing as the Free French after D-Day were equipped with mostly US gear, it makes sense as a FF option.


  • Even if you did just particular pieces for individual sale this would be awesome. In particular I would love to have escort carriers for UK (G40 Tan) and ANZAC.

  • Sponsor '17 '13 '11 '10

    We have sent the colors for matching and looking at the polls we will decide on the colors.

    UK Tan
    ANZAC
    Revised Green
    Neutral Light Blue
    Neutral Light Green

    These seem the most popular.
    Next year we will make another neutral set to compliment the set we have already put out.

    You do French Blue and you’ll be my new favorite person.

    Lend-Lease supplies. More for flavor than units.

    That might make sense for many US units… HBG’s US Supplemental set seems like a laundry list of things that DIDN’T get much lend-lease Soviet use to me, though…  For instance, the Russians actually rather liked the Sherman tank (which isn’t in the set) but had no use for the smaller Stuart (which is in the set…)  I also haven’t heard of them getting much use out of M7 Priests, M18 Hellcats, or US aircraft, and I’m pretty certain they weren’t granted any US BB’s or CVE’s…  As to the US Marine set… Neither did they use US helmets, and though the diff between Russian and US helmets could be overlooked on this scale, the Russians didn’t much like the Thompson smg (which they claimed didn’t have enough penetration) and I haven’t heard of them using US flamethrowers, flamethrower tanks or LVT’s (and DEFINITELY not Corsair fighters.)
