Still weighing it up. I want to support the concept, because I mostly like the new rules, and I want to see more WWI products.
But the board is gaudy and too small, the artillery and fighters are too tiny, the rulebook is evidently the usual monkey-written rubbish.
Â£75 for, um, the tanks, and, er… some of the infantry sculpts look good. Maybe wait for the 2nd edition that IL is convinced will come along next year.
It might have:
A useable board.
The Europe 1940 French infantry, preferably as part of a French unit set made in horizon blue.
East Prussia in Germany.
Mines and USW zones clearly marked on the map.
A rulebook written in comprehensible English. Everything stated clearly, nothing implied.
Different sculpts for each side’s mechanical units (not too bothered about that myself).
Realistic US entry rules, and a 1917 scenario for rednecks. Actually I can make up whatever rules I want. It’s the physical product that makes the decision to buy. After all “official” rules in the world of A&A are a vague suggestion on how to play at best.
Armoured trains with frickin’ lazer beams on the front.
