Probably Confederate infantry attire would strongly resemble British or French kit, to include either the Adrian, or, even more likely, the Brodie helmet.
One imagines that the Union would take its cues from the Germans, or, even more likely, the Russians, meaning either no helmet, or else some version of the stahlhlem. It’s also possible that one might see a distinctive steel hat more akin to the M1, or even a kind of “stovepipe” or “top hat” in steel.
I’m trying hard to think up certain National Advantages. Perhaps Confederate cavalry would be able to execute a kind of blitzkrieg. Would it be likely that a nation without much native automobile production, but having to cover a long border with a relatively small standing army, would develop a heavy emphasis on motorization?
As early as Bull Run, both armies were learning the military value of railroads.
Thank you for reading.
Actually, I have, and made some upgrades to the game.
I have created SITREP, The day after… It’s basically Axis and Allies in a modern setting, starting the day after 9/11.
Modern units, a complete redesigned worldmap. It is all there.
In this boardgame, six powers are involved.
United States of America, United Kingdom, NATO at one side. On the other side, there are The Arab league, Russia and China.
I spend lots and lots of time to translate the real situation into an Axis and Allies setting and according play style.
So far, I am very pleased and satisfied with the result.
I have recently created a new website to share the details with other players.
The introduction may be Dutch
The game rules however, are written in English.
See my website for some details, and feel free to comment.
Again. Thank you for reading my post.
Imagine the world map cut up into regions a la the A&A game board. You take turns moving resources, units, buying technologies, etc towards the objective of capturing opponents’ capital cities set in WWII. However, instead of rolling dice to determine conflicts as in A&A - you jump onto the battlefield and use the resources that were moved into the territory of conflict to play out a RTS battle. Being an A&A board game nut from my high school days AND a RTS fan, I absolutely consider it the best of both worlds.
Took it from Atari board.
