    @knp7765:

    Not sure about the B-25s, I don’t think the US exported a lot of bombers.

    Well, some early bombers were seen abroad quite a bit (Lockheed Hudson, Martin Maryland, Douglass DB-7)  And the British did get pretty much anything they wanted, including a fair # of B-17’s & B-24’s (mostly used for special missions, as they were producing quite a few of their own heavies) and they got quite a number of B-25’s.  But that’s a different story than the Russians…

    Russia recieved 866 b-25s through lend-lease and built many more under licence.


  • @Yavid:

    Russia recieved 866 b-25s through lend-lease and built many more under licence.

    Well, now that’s a fair number, certainly nothing to sniff at!  So that makes at least half of the US Supplemental pieces worth using as “lend-lease flavor” in Russian colors.  Still not a high priority for me, but hey, if HBG can sell 'em, more power to 'em if they want to make 'em.


  • If another color used i prefer a grey-brown. Then people can use them for Canadians and mitigate all the complaining about not having Canada represented.


  • I’m not going to complain if they aren’t done in Russian colors but it is something I would like to see done. The trucks, b-25s, p-40s, transport plane, and paratrooper are all useable but on the eastern front not needed. If the set had Shermans or Lees in it I would fight for Russian Red but as the set is it would be nice (I would buy) but not much more than that.


  • oh and I agree with IL about a color for Canada. And I’ll say again OOB French Blue please


  • soo no more forest green?

  • Customizer

    Forest green Canada please. Lets keep colors as standard as possible. And yes I said standard. FMG set the standard for Canada when they produced the Canadian dice which so many of us have. It would be completely lame to use my forest green dice with grey-brown troops.

    I don’t own a set, but from the pics on their site they look much more like OOB USA olive. Their USA dice look more like OOB Marine green.


  • so more olive green troops -_- forcing us Oob players to have to change our Americans to the darker green?


  • @Lunarwolf:

    On my screen the Canadian dice look about halfway between the oob OD and the FMG dice-green.  Which does make one wonder… Does anyone know what color (or is it colors?) that FMG is planning to use for the US pieces?  Or have they abandoned the project?  FMG has stayed rather mum of late on “future projects.”


  • @coachofmany:

    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.

    Good list. Thanks, Coach.

    Wait: what do you mean by Revised Green?  Is that the “Sea Foam Green” UK color?

    Oh, and is that Revised Green the same as the FMG Canadian Dice Green?

  • Sponsor '17 TripleA '11 '10

    Revised Green = Sea Foam Green = Celery Green. Just depends what you call it.

    Not same as the FMG dice. See pic below.

  • soo for sure no forest green for Canada right?

    How about the darker tan uk color from AAE and AAP?  Anyone else interested in this?


  • @Bob_A_Mickelson:

    Too close in color to the current-standard UK tan.  Better to have a color with a clear difference than an ambiguous one…

    agreed to close to current OOB color


  • I wouldn’t mind seeing a neutral set in the US olive drab color, mainly to use the destroyers, subs and transports alongside the original US set which had only battleships and escort carriers. This would be a good filler spot until we get another US set with the correct American ships.
