Hello A&A peeps!
For the past year I’ve been upgrading my A&A 1940. New map, new pieces, new money, and I am now starting to upgrade my unit boxes to accommodate all the new bits. I had made plastic dividers for the existing boxes but it forced me to lump units together too much. I wanted something cleaner, bigger, and something that can hold cheat sheets relevant to the player.
I hope to try casting the outer box with colored resin and have it be a minimalist smooth plastic box (in the shade of the army it contains) with the nation’s logo stamped on top. The lid will also have cheat sheets printed on the inside.
Problems arise when 3 of the nations use colored roundels for identification, which really doesn’t work in relief. I could use other symbols like the Cross of Lorraine for France, maybe a Fasces for Italy, a crown for Britain? But I’m not all that happy with that idea. I don’t like adding new Iconography to the game. The alternative is just copy the default game roundels and insert colored acrylic plates into the lid.
