Which case to get?
I am a newbie in a&a minis.
I have a starter and one contested.
If I could only get one case from which set should i get?
Eventually I would get others…
Put in your scenario, I’d buy a case of the base set first and then the D Day set 4. I bought sporadically from 1 & 3 until I got the set 4 case. I’ve only picked up one booster from set 2 so far. That was a good move for the overall savings and lack of repeats on the rares. I’m about to be out of touch for half a year and it is my intent to get a case from each of the first three sets on my return.

I’d recommend the base set for starters. It has a lot of core units (M4A1 Shermans, Humbers, SS-PGs, very good commanders, etc).
Also, it’s always better to buy cases if you can, rather than buying a cases worth of boosters individually - you’re 99.99% guaranteed a better spread of units, eg every case I’ve gotten has given me 4 of every common in the set, 2-3 of every uncommon, and usually 12/15 rares, though occasionally there’s a double.
Alternatively, go on eBay or to your FLGS that carries singles and just buy what you need. I prefer cases as it gives you the basis of what you need, and often extras for traders, but I do use eBay to get the numbers of some of the units I want.
Well it also depends what country you are wanting to collect.
USSR: Buy either a set II or a set III. Set I has 2 good soviet tanks but thats about it. Id recommend you just buy those online or trade.
UK: Buy either set I or set IV. Lots of goodies for the UK in those. There are 2 good rares in set II but I just recommend you to buyem online or trade.
Japan: Set I and set II is the way to go for Japan. Set IV only has the Honor Bound hero. Buy that one online, im sure hes only like 75 cents.
Germany and US: Just buy any freakin set!! They all have lots of good German and American units.
If you are looking to collect whole sets like my friend Sol….then just buy a whole case of any set. Simple as that.
