Physical Game pieces



  • I amconsidering to use my pacific red japanese for the italians. Also interesting option is to use my old Europe Russians- they seem to be more brownish than the current ones - to get some cruisers should not be the problem…

    If the board is big enough I am considering to use AAminis for the Boardgame…

    I already started to collect some basic inf…



  • I had bought back then an unofficial expansion called world at war. It was great actuallt, with sub pens and destroyers.

    Anyways, the french and chineeses were sub nations much like it’s seems to be for chinesses in this edition. The plastic pieces were blue for France, i’m thinking i’ll use thoses for Italy.



  • French pieces, in blue color for italian units is a very good idea!

    However, do not tell this to a French, he may become angry for using French units to depict italian ones!  😄



  • I am sick and tired of this piece talk. I was sooo looking forward to see distinctive Italian naval units, but then… WOTC goes cheap…they cheat on us…it is so very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very…lame ! They save a penny but lose the dollar. This plastic cost from less to nothing. WOTC are so cheap. loosers. I woul’d have bought 4 copies if the Italians had nation specific naval units, now I settle with one copy, your loss WOTC, less money to you.

    Does anyone have an idea of what the cost would be to use all minis for the new edition?
    Thanks.



  • Don’t ask for the cost… 😄

    Its a collectible minis game after all, but I already have loads of basic infantyr

    50+ Mosin Nagants (Russian Soldier)
    30+ Arisakas (Japanese Soldiers), MAuser Rifle, SMLE Rifle, M1 Garand Rifle, 20+ Fucile (Italian Soldiers)

    Subs are cheap (though no russians so far)

    Destroyers are also under a $ per piece

    As a minis gamer its affordable to trade away surplus stock for units needed for th game

    if you start from Scratch and buy “singles” it will be expensive.

    its an option for us who already own many pieces

    But for Italians alone: (the online shop I order my pieces)

    price per piece
    Ambra (Submarine) 0,19$
    Luca Tarigo (Destroyer) 0,79$ OR Ugolino Vivaldi (DD) 0,39$
    E.F. Duca D’Aosta (CL) 1,79$ OR Eugenio di Savoia (CL) 1,29$
    Vittorio Veneto (BB) 7,99$ - are really big - the Giulio Cesare BB is a bit smaller but costs 8,99$
    NO CARRIER AVAILABLE ATM
    NO TRANSPORT AVAILABLE ATM

    C.202 Folgore - fighter 1,39$ - a stand has 3planes that are molded together, but you might be able to cut them…
    SM.79 Sparviero - twin engine Bomber 2.59$

    Fucile Modello (infantry) 0,49$
    47/32 Antitank Gun (Arty) 0,39$
    Carro Armato M11/39 2,29$ - L3/35 Tankette 0,59$ (the latter is quite small and currently not available, the foremer relative big)

    prices change wwith demand the Rusian Mosin Magant costs around 3 times the Fucile…

    How much a nation costs depends largely on how many units of each type you probably will need…
