New Units in A&A Revised



  • I was wondering what others have done to add new units to A & A Revised? I was thinking of getting a copy of the Old A & A and using some of those pieces as new units. Maybe the Old Battleship as a Cruiser? Anyone have any experience in this area?



  • I bought 4 games. Painted the units and now got 2 complete sets so I don´t have to use the counterchips.



  • You nerd.

    Actually, I painted my pieces too… umm…  :oops:

    Use the old set- use the old Battleships as Heavy Cruisers (Scharnhorst anyone?). 18 IPCs, Attack 3, Defend 3, two hits to kill, bombard on a 1.

    The old set Fighters are also cool for carrier based aircraft- make your own variations for TDB planes.

    These are just some starters- get as creative as you want then playtest. You’ll usually know pretty quickly if you’ve tipped the balance too far in one direction, then you can tweak the rules.

    there is a whole booklet called A&A enhanced realism rules.  The extra things are

            light cruiser - put a a flag under a destroyer to mark.  Att.2 Def.2 no bombardment          cost 12
            super carrier - put 2 flags under. holds 3 planes  Att. 0 def. 3      cost 20
            regular carrier - holds 2 planes att. 0 def. 2              cost 16
            escort carrier - put one flag under to mark. holds 1 plane.  att.0 def.1 cost 12
            the destroyers become worthless except for air attacks on subs and negating the sub first strike.  att.1 def.1 cost 6

    airforce— heavy bomber- put two flags under a bomber to mark.  att.5 def.1  cost 18 
                  air transport - put one flag to mark.  carries one inf. into battle.  battle movement is 2 in and 2 out.  must be in same space at
                  the beginning to work.  it can attack on the second cycle of rolls, att. 1 def. 1    cost 10
                  jet - one flag under a fighter to mark.  att. 4 def. 5        cost 15

    land units-- these are tricky to understand. 
                    -heavy inf.-- put one flag under a inf. to mark  att. 2 def. 3    they can be hit twice.  one to knock them down to regular             
                      guys and then once more to kill them.  for example i’m being attacked in a spot where i have 3 heavy inf.  the guy gets
                      four hits on me. i defend and roll my 3 dice hoping for 3’s  I can choose to take one out completely after i defend on a
                      3 for him.  thats two hits.  The other two infantry i can knock down to regular inf. then.  thats four hits total.  The
                      next cycle they defend as regular inf. and get killed in one hit.              cost 5

    heavy tank.  put a flag under a tank to mark.  att 4 def. 3  same rules apply as with heavy inf.  They can be hit twice.
                                            cost. 7
