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.
Make sure when you play Germany to Gas the french real good. You got a few turns before they can gas you and you get gas masks sooner.
Man i love sending in gas canisters against the allies.
Turn 1 is a good turn to launch the German fleet, use your zeppelins and always take the Schlieffen Plan option.
Try to kill one front then the other. If you try both you may fail. You can also just grab some french and go after Russia. Latter in the game Russia will fall by itself, but to remove it early is huge.
Don’t let the Ottomans get too weak. If they go you lose the whole front because they cut the board in half.
Paul and I are going to start two separate projects from this point forward. Paul will do his best to preserve the info from this thread as it pertains to his game which you can follow here:
As far as my game (simplified version using more or less OOB pieces) you can follow it in this thread:
Thank you everyone and we both encourage full participation and idea sharing in both our ventures. As Paul says, we want to have MORE FUN!
The Complete G40 Set!?! Aw man, that’s going to be a while. I know they are making the mould for Germany and assuming they get this one right the first time (no defects in the mould like what happened with Italy), I think it takes roughly a month or so just to get the mould made at the foundery then shipped back to the factory. Then the factory has to get with Jeremy to choose the right plastic and color. Once that is done, they can go into full production.
With Italy, they went into full production about June 6 and were finished by the end of July or beginning of August. Then they had to package them all up onto skids for the freight company and arrange for the freight company to go get them which I guess took another couple of months or so (early Aug to Oct 9/10). Then the ocean voyage, customs and transit to FMG hopefully by Halloween.
So, if Germany goes by roughly the same schedule and they have the mould ready by late November/early December, I would figure full production starting early-mid December, possibly finished by early-mid February (minimum 1000 sets ordered). Packaging and pickup by freight company roughly mid-March and , with any luck, at FMG by April. Now, this is just a wild guess by me just going by what happened with Italy. Actually, I’m hoping that I am wrong and everything goes smoothly and the German units get here even sooner. After all, they sort of “cut their teeth” with Italy so maybe it will go a little faster, not just with Germany but with all the future nations.
As for USA, it’s still in the sculpting stage so I have no clue as to how soon they will go into production.
