well, Anniversary was the last game printed so making more minis from the same sculpt makes economic sense.
I imagine keeping the costs down and retail price low was an important factor for this game.
If that’s the theory, then Anniversary should have had either 1942 or 1940 sculpts… since those were the last games made before Anniversary… they had to dig up old sculpts to make Anniversary.
Mind you, both 1942 and 1940 are still in production.

Anniversary was just printed last fall, so it would be still fresh in the factory.
The others were a few years before that.
I don’t know if molds are kept or discarded after a certain time.
Using previous sculpts/models to make new molds would be easy enough for new games but AAZ is so close after AAA that they might just run the same molds for the new game.
Cutting costs on production as well.
A distinction needs to be kept in mind between the original Anniversary edition and the recent Anniversary reprint. Some of the reprint’s sculpts were brought up to what I’d call “recent standards”, meaning Global 1940.2 and 1942.2, so the reprint is actually a blend of newer sculpts and older ones.

Artwork on the back of the box indicates no new sculpts except for the zombie miniatures.
What, no ‘chainsaw tanks?’ Color me disappointed.
How do we think they’ll differentiate between anti-zombie unit types if not by miniature? A little slip of paper, again?
Might be worth buying a few spares from HBG and do a little creative painting.
This looks cool… I think.
Looks like it’s already available for pre-order on Amazon US:
Does anyone know what the ‘86 card expansion deck for Axis & Allies 1942’ is? Are they like the event cards from A&A D-Day?

At least they included paper money……
