it was nothing really. it was just a notification that you were able to sign up for pre-order the units…… u will receive a notification WHEN you are able to pre-order. but i guess we all will know that almost before we will get the message.
No, sorry, same thing; it’s sometimes spelled one way and sometimes the other. I’m trying to get used to spelling it IS-2, but I’m used to spelling it JS-2.
It stands for “Joseph Stalin 2” (in standard English romanization) which is also spelled Iosef Stalin in a more literal/accurate romanization, I believe. Either way, “ole Joe Stalin” is the same person and the second model of tank named after him is the same tank.
You know, a 1-1-2-3 jeep actually makes a good justification for truck pieces being Motorized Infantry at 1-2-2-4, does it not?
Although, were there really whole units made up of jeeps? In North Africa, maybe. Perhaps Trucks ought to 1-1-2-3 as well.
Well, it seems that every army needs its fodder units, so I would rather have 1 armor unit 3-3-2-5 and 1 jeep unit 1-1-2-3 for a total IPC cost of 8 than have 2 motorized infantry at 2-2-2-4 at the same IPC cost of 8, because when you lose the first hit, then you still have a 3 attacking/defending. Now, if you give the motorized infantry the ability to be upgraded by artillery units, then it may be more balanced, but getting the artillery to keep up with them is a different matter.
I agree. If I had 30 IPCs to spend, I’d buy 5 jeeps and 3 tanks.
Hello all. I want to give a special thanks to elbowsanchez for putting my game pictures out on his server. I have been unable to post these pictures since my web provider went OOB. Anyway, here are the games that I have created:
Axis of Evil
The United States and the European Union are attacked by the new Russian Federation, China, and the International Islamic Alliance in a new global war.
The Balkans (1999)
The US and NATO invade Serbia to end the ethic cleansing in Kosovo. NATO invades into Kosovo while the US conducts an amphibous landing in Montenegro. Russia joins sides with Serbia.
The Cuban Missile Crisis
President Kennedy gives the green light for the invasion of Cuba.
The US and the UN take on Iraq, Russia and China in this global variant.
Opertion Downfall - 1946
A hypothical battle if the US had to invade mainland Japan in the second part of Operation Downfall in Operation Coronet.
The US and NATO attack Iran in the near future to end that country’s nuclear ambitions.
Operation: Iraqi Freedom
Re-fight the war as either the Coalition or Iraqi generals. No politicians, no restrictions. Fight the war to win!
Operation Market Garden
Refight this famous battle to try to turn the tide of history. (Please note that the map is now GRAY and not YELLOW.)
My personal favorite! Set up like D-Day, the German 6th, 9th, and 16th armies must push into Britian and capture London.
The Second Korean War
The Korean penninsula erupts in conflict again. The game pits the US, South Korea, North Korea, and China in the desperate fight for dominance. The war has the potential to spill over into a Chinese invasion of Taiwan as well as becoming nuclear.
Instead of fighting a status quo war in Vietnam, the US president authorizes an invasion of North Vietnam! Fight the war in a whole new level! The US and South Vietnam take on the Viet Cong, North Vietnam, and China.
World War III
The USSR and China blindside NATO and the US in a new global war. Will the Allies be able to fight back?
I sell these games if any are interested. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you price as well as shipping cost.
Just wanted to mention also that I REALLY like the Corsair. It was a fighter/Tac bomber.
If it was only up to me I would use it as the Tac bomber… But Im sure most will wnat a more “iconic” Tac bomber for the USA.
this was a quote from FMG page 70 in the Field Marshal Games Pieces Project Discussion thread
IF Fmg is going to stay with this idea can you please keep it the same size as regular fighters
