Couldn’t find and accordion folders that were big enough. What I came up with are poster boxes. Picked one up at the UPS store. I can fit all the charts inside, it keeps them I good condition, and it stores well.

RE: Matching paints for AA OOB units
Although it’s more time consuming, I’ve been using acrylic paints because they’re cheaper. Here’s what I’ve been able to match so far:
Apple Barrel brand (available at Walmart):
Coffee Bean - Russia
Barn Red - Maroon Russia/HBG Maroon (matches ok, not perfect)
Lite Mocha - D-Day Blonde
Khaki - UK G40/HBG Tan
Milk Chocolate - Italy
Christmas Green - HBG Dark Green
Cool Blue - HBG Light Blue (ok match)
Elephant Gray - HBG Light Gray
Dark Gray - HBG Dark Gray
Pewter Gray - Anzac
Bright Blue - France
Bright Red - Pacific 2001/HBG Red
Sublime Lime - HBG Yellow Green
For American Pieces I use Craft Smart’s Olive Green from Michaels
I’m having trouble matching Celery Green (Revised UK), and the Classic Japan/HBG Yellow Gold. Anyone find something that works with them?
Need help matching colors
I’m currently building my Global War set, and I’m painting a lot of pieces to make pieces of a certain color that are not available. (i.e. Orange submarines). I’ve found good matches for most of the colors, but I’m having trouble with two sets in particular:
-Classic Japanese/HBG Yellow Gold
-Revised UK/HBG Celery Green
Has anyone found paints that are decent matches for these color pieces? Can be spray, or brush on paint. Don’t have to be perfect matches, just close enough that you can tell what nation the pieces belong to.
Perhaps I’ve overlooked this, but when you lend-lease to another country, can you only send units that are in the receiving country’s build chart? For example, could America lend-lease a tank to China, or would they have to wait until the unlikely event that China becomes a major power?
Does it apply to countries with advanced units? If Germany researches Advanced Artillery, could they send one to Italy if they haven’t researched it?
RE: HBG Red (Communist China) vs Light Red
Initially, I was going to use the “Japanese” red to build Manchukuo or Siamese forces, but found that it was difficult for me to tell the difference between the two when they’re placed on the board (I’m significantly red-green colorblind). At least with the Russian pieces, I can tell what they are.
Version 2, Abyssinia Lend Lease
I’m slightly confused about whether or not England and France can lend lease to Abyssinia in version 2. There is no supply path, and UK/France player cards state that they cannot lend lease until they are at war with a major power. But, concerning the Italian campaign in Abyssinia, it states that other countries can lend lease to Abyssinia.
Is it possible, and if not, why include it in the Italian campaign rules? There seems to be no other way to prevent Italy from conquering Abyssinia.
This issue seems to be fixed in version 3, but we’re playing version 2 on Tabletop Simulator because of covid19.
