You may be correct Marc. The version I have however was not the Attack “Deluxe” edition as I believe the version you mentioned is or was called. […] The board itself is really nice and there’s plenty of bits that an A&A customizer would like.
Yes, I was referring to “Deluxe”. I own the original base game and original expansion game, and when I heard that a Deluxe version was coming out I considered buying it until I discovered it was juat a two-in-one repackaging of what I already had.
The game takes place in a quirky semi-alternate-reality version of the 1930s, with some decidely odd-looking tank sculpts and with Art Deco-ish graphics in the rulebook. I agree that the sculpts have customizer potential. The units that are perhaps the most compatible, look-wise, with the A&A OOB sculpts are the artillery guns. The map – which is quite large – is a bit weird in its design, but I give it full credit for having full wraparound capabilities: the two halves can be assembled in two configurations (meaning with the eastern panel on the right and the western panel on the left, or vice-versa), and in both cases the land masses and sea routes connect perfectly. I wish I could say the same about the Global 1940 map.
