I just wanted to pass on to everyone some new units on Shapeways that are now in Axis and Allies size.
C.O.B. Constructs and Miniatures has a set of New Mexico class Battleships in 1/3800 scale that are perfect for your light Battleships and New Aragon Mechanical Works has just made available a Aichi E16A1 Zuiun (Paul) float plane in the 1/500 scale. So, if your looking for some new units to add to your board then check these two out.
Repaint of Italian and ANZAC units
Thought I would share.
I never cared for how similar in colour the Italians and Soviets were, so I painted my FMG units avocado green when I got them.
I see that Hasbra tried to make teh colours of these two a little easier to tell apart in the second edition, but not enough, so I’ll be keeping my FMG units that I painted.
The pewter colour for ANZAC I also thought a poor choice, so I painted them a light blue to stand out better on the board.
I like the contrast of colours bette this way. Anyone else paint their units?
Nice work! I agree with your opinion on simular colors, and applaud your work. IMHO whenever you make a change, however big or small, that makes it easier, better looking, or more fun for you I think you’ve done something worthwhile!
Keep up the good work.
p.s.-There are several very talented people that paint their units. Just look in this customization area.
