I love miniatures, I love quick battles, I love reanctments. What I really love are long lasting campaigns. Has anyone attempted to recreate the entire war?
Somehow make a hybrid combo of the A&A minis and A&A boardgame. You have the world map that can be “zoomed in” to play a territorial battle to determine the outcome.
Start in the late 30s and setup a time scale that moves along as turns are completed. Maybe one turn = one month. and of course you can only play units of the current year or earlier.
You would also have to find ways to pull off amphibious invasions and this is where the new sea battles will come in….you have to transport your units across water, protected by convoys etc…
