Yes I agree airpower was dominant in the pacific but in this campaign the night actions should be modeled as there were so many such engagements in the slot.
I like the idea of some sort of night rules (long lance, radar etc); I see there is an optional rule for the Japanese to use a nightfighting token but I don’t think this is what Commander Hara had in mind.
Is there a place where these and other suggested “house” rules are being accumulated for A&AG?
Nice video. Ya when u crunch the numbers it’s not really a good idea to SBR in certain times. For me the bomber in g40 is to strong.
Also the dam rule for the major factory needs to be modified for SBR to be worth it for sending 2 or 3 bombers.
Try doing this. Stg. Bomber SBR dam 1d6 +3.
Thanks for the reply! Yeah, I watched the video after I posted (dumb of me), and noticed the new cities, new islands in the pacific, etc.
I wasn’t too worried about the terrain features, if that was the only change. I could find some other way to represent jungle, dessert, tundra, etc. with my current map. But sounds like that won’t work.
Not going to lie, that’s highly disappointing. Really disappointing that they’d do that to your customers who already shelled out $150.00+ for the current map, just to make a new one making this obsolete. You essentially HAVE to buy the new one in order to get the rule fixes (which are desperately needed), otherwise they would not make sense with the old map, or would have to be further modified/house ruled by individual owners. Just upsetting, because we don’t all have $150.00 to throw around every 2 years when they decide to update the map.
Looking forward to seeing how you blend the 2 rule sets. Last g40 game we played my group was disappointed by some missing unit types but happy with the faster builds for factory and naval units. Tech in g40 is so broken we never got a guy willing to use it. Gw36 tech is always in play. Good luck its looking good!
