1942 game on a 1940 global map?
SEP last edited by
I may have the opportunity to obtain both 1940 boards (boards only-no pieces). But currently I have only the 1942.2 pieces plus the tactical bombers & mech infantry units for each of the five 1942.2 powers I purchased from HBG. I may fork over the cash at some point for the minor powers for the 1940 global game. Until then I’m curious if anyone has developed a functional OOB for the five major powers used in the 1942.2 game to be used on a 1940 global board?

Iâ€m in a similar situation; I own A&A â€œclassicâ€œ, â€œEurope (1999)â€œ, â€œPacific (2000)â€, â€œ1914â€ & â€œ1942.1â€. For a game of â€œ1940-Globalâ€ you need additional units for Italy, France, China and ANZAC.
By now Iâ€ve bought miniatures for ANZAC and China, while using my French and Italian 1914 pieces.
If you possess enough miniatures, you donâ€t need a new 5-player set-up. Just use some
- Americans (or maybe Russians) for China,
- British with face-down-control markers underneath for ANZAC and France (In addition the location of the units will help you to keep them apart.)
- and Japanese with face-down-control markers underneath for Italy.
Btw. If you use some optional â€œVichy - House Rulesâ€ after the fall of Paris you need the â€œbritishâ€French only during turn one.

Thanks Lars. I went ahead and took the plunge and ordered the French, Italian, ANZAC and Chinese units from HBG. I took a look at each power’s starting units and then made an education guess as to what I would need. They arrived yesterday and I’ve got them all sorted out and ready to go. Just waiting for the boards to come in and I’ll get a game going. But good thoughts on the classic units, if I need anything extra all those classic pieces will be coming out of retirement.
