• Hello together,

    I am currently shopping at HBG for 1940 Global 2nd Edition and was wondering if the color for US units is “Olive Drab” or “Dark Green”.
    Has anyone here experiences?

    Best regards,

    If you’ve ever played or seen A&A Pacific, the US has Infantry units in two colors: normal green and a darker green. The darker green Infantry serve as US Marines, which get a bonus to their attack value when they take part in an Amphibious Invasion.

    One of HBG’s first sets of new units for A&A was a set of US Marine Infantry, Tanks, and F4U Corsair Fighters. They sold them in both sets of colors, “Olive Drab” and “Dark Green”. The “Olive Drab” corresponded to ‘regular’ US units and the “Dark Green” corresponded to the A&A Pacific US Marines.

    In short, unless you want your new HBG units to stand out (and be a different shade of green) from your regular A&A pieces, you want to order them in “Olive Drab”.

    Glad to help. That thread is very, very helpful for those trying to replace lost pieces from older games: “I need a Japanese Battleship for Guadalcanal, where can I get a replacement?”
