Greetings. I’ve been playing Axis and Allies G1940 for about a year now.
I absolutely love this game; So much that I am trying to add more content to an already amazing game.
I’ve already added a few playable minor nations for the Axis/Ally powers; one of these are the Dutch/Netherlands.
Since Germany occupies Holland, where the Netherlands’ ‘Capital’ lies it means the Dutch cannot collect any IPC’s or create new units. I am not trying to change that.
However, there should still [historically] be a small military presence in the Dutch East Indies.
I was disappointed that there were no seperate roundels, military units, or possibility of liberation in the base game.
My idea: Place a small military Dutch military presence in the Dutch East Indies. (I’ve purchased their Roundels & Units)
2 Infantry (Java)
1 Cruiser, 1 Transport & 1 Sub (SZ42)
I need some ideas from you; Should they have a minor factory? more/less units? Where to place them?
Also, what order would their turn sequence be?
Even though they are occupied, it would be nice to see them again in the chance their Capital is liberated 8-)
As we are aware, the East Indies are very important for Japan, UK P, and ANZAC IPCs for the war effort.
Adding the Netherlands as a minor occupied power would negate the exception of UK P and ANZAC gaining the IPC value of the territories, which might be interesting.
