HBG has 22 in stock bags of chips for 1914.
$2 a bag of 60 chips.
15 red/15 dak red/15 light blue/15 dark blue.
They have 5 bags of chips for 1942 SE.
$5 a bag for 40 chips.
25 grey/10 green/5 red.
mixing colours can be hard.
Using the Quiller colour wheel is helpful.
He plotted artists colours on the colour wheel.
Orange needs a red with a warm/yellow bias and yellow with a warm/red bias.
A six colour primary colour wheel is a must if you want to mix secondary colours.
Remember this rule too. When mixing, always add the dark colour to the light one.
If you get too dark, make a new dish of light colour and add small amounts of the “too dark” colour to it.
Saves paint and you can use the left over “too dark” colour as shading.
I find spray paint primer a must for this work. Saves a lot of time.
I generally use black primer for the figures and almost dry brush the raised surfaces.
White primer when most of the top coat colours are light/white.
Grey if not either of the above.
@djensen I bought a bunch once for my kids birthday grab bags. There was a few different sizes and shapes at the time.
I should go back and see what they have.
I need something for the A&A&Z game. My 42SE uses the boxes from my second Anniversary edition game. Those are nice boxes!
I made inserts from a file here or BGG which was print/fold/glue. It made 6 sections for the Ann. boxes. Inf/Armour-Art./Fighters-Bombers/AC-Battleship/other ships/Tokens.
I own the following:
Classic - 3/4 copies ( I give them to people who want something more than Risk-I buy them when I see them for $5/$10)
Revised - 2 copies (still like playing this version)
Europe - 1 copy
Pacific - 2 copies
D-Day - 2 copies
Guadalcanal - 1 copy
Battle of the Bulge - 1 copy
Anniversary (first print) – 1 copy
Spring 1942 - 3 - copies (use pieces of 2 copies to augment other titles)
Europe 1940 (first edition) - 1 copy
Pacific 1940 (first edition) - 2 copies ( I am looking for a 2nd ed. board to mate up with Europe. I prefer the 1st ed. maps but being a visual guy, I want the maps to sync. Dislike the new ANZAC sculpts so don’t want a 2nd ed. game)
Europe 1940 (second edition) - 1 copy
1914 - 2 copies
1942 (second edition) - 3 copies (one shrink from last years boxing day sale Amazon - $30)
Anniversary (second edition) - 2 copies
1941 - 1 copy
A&A&Zombies - 1 copy
Xeno 1939 version - 1 copy
If I see any title selling for $5-$10, I usually pick it up cause I have a problem.
A question on recruitment centres. Are people house ruling them into all A&A games?
If so, what cost do you put them at and how may infantry can you place in one?
Thanks and the models look great.
HBG pieces are great looking BUT shipping to Canada is like buying a game at MSR.
It just isn’t worth using HBG when shipping generally equals and often exceeds the total order price.
Hence one reason I buy 2 copies of each game. (just not at full retail)
