so just to be clear, Do the units of the various sets overlap? is there a chance for example that I get a booster for early war and i get a unit that is also in another booster pack like the desert one of the 39-45 one?
I have an apartment building not more than 1/2 mile from that place…when visit it i usually eat at that “good neighbor” restaurant next door. That store is kinda small… have you seen others play axis and allies there? Or just the miniatures version of it?
I totally disagree about the quality of the FOW miniatures
I didnt say they were bad miniatures, only that they are a total rip off like AA miniatures. If you keep the scale with 1/285 you get those horrible blobs made by GHQ that are way to small for a decent aesthetic. Also the AA minis are not really in scale either. The soldiers seem too tall compared with say the tiger tank. FOW is in true scale but a total ripoff. AA is a smaller rip off, because they create this “collectible” crap with having some pieces made in less quantities than others. The solution is allways to go down in scale and deal with companies that can sell you what you want without resorting to “Ebay”
The secondary importance is clear when you realize that the 1/285 scale is the same size as your regular AA ground pieces (well tanks and artillery). While the necessary detraction is having 1/72 scale infantry which are large rthan the tanks.
Is it just me or does it bother anybody else that the Expanded Rules cover is not stapled to the actual book? And on the back cover they included Greece as an ally but not Hungary as an Axis. Also the sign for Poland is not the same as that of the one on the Stat Card. Its the little things that drive me nuts!
