Use a lot of the same units. Whenever I play, I give one player like 10 shermans if he is the us. or 10 panzer IVs if he is germany. It helps because you have less cards to look at for the movements and attacks. If you cut out air, that shortens it too.
Noob here: Do I just paint over the plastic pieces that come with the game?
So I’m completely new to A&A, but a huge WWII buff. Dad wouldn’t buy me the game when I was little because it was too expensive as far as board games go, but now I’m a grown man and I just bought my first A&A 1942 Second Edition (arriving TODAY :-D) and I wanted to get into painting the miniatures. I’ve painted some plastic ME-109s and Spitfires models as a kid, but never painted miniatures. I was just wondering…
-Do I paint over the plastic pieces that come with the game?
-What if I mess up? Do I just wash the paint off and start over?
-What is the purpose of buying the expansion miniatures?
-Are expansion miniatures already painted?
-Can expansion miniatures be used to play my 1942 2nd ed?
-Is it difficult to learn?
-How long does a came last on average?
-How does A&A compare to say, the hexagonal war games of the 70s and 80s?
Sorry for all the noob questions. Just wondering. I have a friend who’s also never played, but we’re going to do this. I WILL CRUSH HIM.
They come pre-painted and ready to rock but feel free to paint away. All expansion pieces come painted as well. Easy game to learn but made to play as a stand alone game, not recomended for the board games. Although you can use the infantry pieces.
