So very true. When I first started painting my aircraft I had to include decal roundels for the players to distinguish the pieces from one another. My naval units are painted mostly with a color scheme for playability except for the capital ships like the Carriers and popular Battleships. All of them have a decal or flag to show which nation they belong too. I actually replaced the OOB British Cruisers because I thought they looked too close in size with the destroyers. I ended up replacing with some ships I found on Shapeways. The biggest problem I had with naval units is that they can exist in the same seazone with enemy pieces unlike land territories. Because of this I decided to keep the subs, destroyers, cruisers and non unique battleships following a color scheme. There are so many colors in the spectrum though we should be able to come up with a solution that will make them look more historical yet keep the pattern or color scheme for the nation. I really would love to paint all the ships historically and maybe I will revisit them again someday. Every time I go back and repaint my pieces I seem to get better at it. Or at least I think I do, hehe.

@FascistKerbal Go to a different office depot store, or try it with a different employee at a different time. Persistence.

@siredblood Good job!!! - When I was looking for cards with all objectives I came to your youtube link. It’s funny - I had the same idea but I created the rules etc. with bigger charts years ago. I think it is good to have some rules in short to clarify some questions during games.
Just one question: Why are the German cards not colored, too?

I noticed the Iron Cross or “Balkenkreuz” you used for the German cards are not the ones used in WW2. You took the current Balkenkreuz of the German military --> Bundeswehr. It looks similiar to the medal Iron Cross of WW2.
But the Wehrmacht used a different Iron Cross / “Balkenkreuz” for their vehicles, planes etc… , see i.e. A&A orignal marker.
Are these cards still available anywhere? The links appears to be dead.
Just got into AA40 and introducing new players to the game as a whole these would be very useful with the rule cards.
