New Expansion Packs for Global?


  • '13

    I was looking to buy some peices after i bought a board. However they seem to be off the market for the time being…

    Any news on it?


  • '13

    Well, i checked the site again and found that there are new expansion packs that are being introduced.

    So how does that all work out? Is there still a “lot” of peices i can buy, or do i have to buy them individualy for global. Or should i wait and see what will come out later?

  • I ended up ordering most of the pieces individually myself.  Check your order when you receive it though.  There’s been a few times when I got mine and a few pieces where missing, especially on the bigger orders.

    In regards to plans for an updated “lot” for the game, I’m not the right guy to ask.  It would make things a bit easier though somewhat if they had one available.  They have actual specific designs for alot of the different countries now, which effectively makes the old “lot” of painted pieces obsolete.

    Quintus,

    Everything you need for Global 39 exists on HBG’s website. If you have a recent A and A game you have many of the necessary pieces already.

    I suggest:

    Germany and Axis Minors sets in black, grey, yellow, dark grey, and mustard. Marines, a US supplement sets (try at least two), Japanese supplement, Russian early and late war, neutral sets  in at least five colours, 20 each of naval base and air field markers, and at least 20 twelve sided dice in the colours you prefer (I went with red and white at first).

    Get SS, Guards, Commando, Airbourne, Fallschirm, Marines, SNLF etc markers.

    My understanding is that the just announced expansions are to add a new dimension to the game and bring forward battles on an operational level within the larger strategic context (I am super excited about this).

    Alright,thanks for the advice. I went and made a list on the pieces I thought were appropriate for the units, and have put some fortifications on it as well.

    Will 1940 second editions have enough air and naval fields or will I need to buy more?


  • 2018 2016 2015 '11 '10

    I don’t have Global 40 second edition (just first) but you more than likely will have enough to start. I bought the HBG markers because I absolutely despise the cardboard markers.

    Hi guys, I’m new to the forum and I’m in the same boat as far as the Global 1939 supplement set. HBG is out of them. I saw your suggestions on units, but I don’t know what roundels I need for the game. They had the list up on their site until a couple of days ago, but it is no longer there. I wished I had copied it now. This is the reason I haven’t bought a map because they are out of this supplement set on their website. Can you tell me what roundels I need? I would appreciate it. I have been wanting to buy the map and play, but this is the reason that has stopped me from purchasing it.

    Thanks for any replies!

    Will, welcome to the forum. I checked out your website and, and you have got me pumped for these new units. Because of all the things you guys have planned, it won’t be just a game day, we will be playing one game for a week because of all the strategies that will be added to the game. This is so exciting. Cheers to you for making my day. 😄

    Guys,

    So now that we know about the new expansions, how many of each set, is everyone buying? I want to get at least 3 of everything. That way I will have enough for any conflict on the game board. 😄

    Personally it will all depend on what is in each set. I usually like to have at least ten of each unit sometimes twenty of each color.

    I don’t have an HBG Global map and use thier custom units for my own HRs and variants.

    That makes sense.  For Island Warfare, I will probably by 3 sets of it because I think I know most of the pieces HBG is going to offer in it, since they have advertised it enough.


  • Customizer

    Yeah John 3 sounds about right.

    The new Japanese pieces are perfect in quantity composition of units so I’ve been ordering whole sets of those rather than a lot of singles like I’ve done in the past. The second set I might cherry pick once they become available as singles, but whole sets are such a good deal I almost would rather have extra units I don’t like as much.


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    Now when the Romanian/Hungary Minors set comes out, I might not buy as much. I will wait and see what is in the set first and make my decision then. Like you said, take one set at a time.

    I’ll probably buy them just to have them. They’re not a must have for me though, the current Axis minors sets are perfectly suitable to me right now. However I love HBG’s stuff and end up liking stuff I didn’t think I’d like as much.

    As of yet I want the UK and French sets that are in production really bad.


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    Yes, I want those as well. I also missed out on the Russian set, so I’ve got to get it as well. Doug says, they’ll be restocked soon. I hope so! Anyway, it is great that HBG is only 3 hours from me. I can get things delivered in 2 days tops. It is so nice to be that close to the company and Doug is the best. 🙂


  • Customizer

    Ohh yeah. They are fast. I live in Oregon and I usually only have to wait about three days!


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    You live in Oregon? I would have expected 5 days. That is pretty good because I live in next door, in Texas. Wow, that is awesome that you get it that fast!


  • Customizer

    Three days shipping. Four days if you include the day the order was placed. Either way these guys are supersonic at getting it to your mail box LOL.
