I suppose it works out that way, as most of the machines used by, say, the Turks, were supplied by Germany. There were a lot of arms and training given to the American troops by France, as well. Though, Pershing wanted complete autonomy. A lot of sharing going on with the Great War.
�� �� Hi Young Grasshopper! Thanks for the National Objective cards. What a great idea so all of us will not forget any of our National Objective’s! Can you tell or show me these G40 Delta Deck you guys are talking about please? You really do add so much to this game sir! Thanks 😮
…because my I.D. charts approach the subject from a different angle: in almost every case, they simply show one representative sculpt for each nationally-distinctive design produced to depict each unit type that has appeared in A&A over the years.Â The charts mostly ignore the many variations (some minor and some major) that have been seen in the sculpts – for example, the two versions of the Japanese field artillery piece, which was produced with the undercarriage either folded for towing or deployed for firing.Â The only exceptions I made were for the Panther tank, the 88mm AAA gun and the Stuka dive-bomber (interestingly, all three being German units) because of the peculiar evolution of those three units over the course of A&A’s production history (especially in the case of the gun and the plane, which started out as completely different – and incorrectly-used – units compared to their current status).
Thanks again Marc, I had forgotten about his thread. this will be very helpful as well. 🙂
I use a bottle of ink and the floor polish. I think I mix it like 3:1 polish to ink.Â I don’t generally dip my pieces. UsuallyÂ a 5/0 or #3 brush works best to apply the wash. When doing ships, I’m careful not to wash the decks as I find it makes the whole piece look dull. I just do the edges around the castles, guns and other little details.
Let the wash dry and then dry brush your pieces. This really brings out the detail/contrast. I use flat KrylonÂ ColorMaster (spray can) for sealing/protecting. My pieces are handled a lot and it works the best.
Thanks Koba for your input. It is really appreciated. 🙂
John I’m guessing you may have it already, but Battle Cry 150th Anniversary edition is readily available and improves upon the previous edition with almost twice the battle scenarios.
Anyways good luck with your search.
Tolerone77, I have two copies of that one and the original, and it is a great game, but I I wanted one that plays like Napoleon in Europe and this is as close as gets, till HBG produces their new Civil War game.
Thanks for mentioning it and thanks for wishing me luck. 🙂
No problem John. If I find it I’ll send you a link if I find it anywhere.
Just in case anyone needs parts, or would like to build a game for way less than the $170-200 complete games are going for. This does raise a question. Why would anyone replace the pieces with Battue pieces to be left with an all cavalry variant?
Hey John, I have painted them before. It was painstaking, but I think I can simplify it a little bit and make it look good. I will see what I can do. Once I get my hands on my old pieces, I can send you a photo of my old Flying Tiger! Also, are you planning on using the P-40 Warhawk for that?
Great, I was worried about that. I’m going to finalize everything and send you China and Australia, next. My sticker guy has not got back with me on the Union Jacks, so I will not be sending UK Europe and Pacific, at this time, till I get some answers. Yes, the OOB P-40 is what I will have you paint.
I’m going to try to ship you these by next Monday. 🙂
You do not need to clear a seazone before an amphibious assault if the seazone you are unloading into has only enemy transports or submarines. In the case of submarines you must have a warship (Carrier, Destroyer, Battleship or Cruiser) escorting the transport so you can IGNORE the submarine before the amphibious assault begins.
I just checked out there site and the battle of britian set and industrial and rails, South America, partisans, seaplanes and seaplane tenders are all gone and Superweapons UK and Italy were put in there place. A couple of those I would have liked to have seen the light of day some of the ones (read zombies) I don’t care if it comes out
You’ve been absent, quite a bit. Have you been busy, lately? 🙂
Judging by the fact it took me 3 weeks to answer the question. Yes very busy, working 10+ hour days 6 days a week and taking care of the mother-in-law.
Well, I hope your doing well. 🙂
yeah I am. I’ve been so busy I haven’t even had a chance to put my Japanese set away. I went through it and checked it out but they are still in the box they came in
