Something that can change hands should remain as a generic colour for all. There’s enough stuff to do without having to swap out different coloured factories as well!

RE: Country colored Industrial Complexes or generic?
RE: Global War 36 Seperate Board. Wahoo.
Don’t want to be a broken record but wish HBG would open source the map so others could work on it too. Lots of good ideas out there and some people with great Photoshop skills (i.e Sireblood/etc.). HBG could still print them or perhaps offer one-time use licensing if one wants to print elsewhere (hard to get and control a copyright though, I understand). Allows people to print different sizes too and on different materials.
My 2 cents.
Your 2 cents is VERY valuable.
I’d like a elec copy to print a mini version so we can refer to it when planning, discussing moves with teammates. It’s so hard to see borders, values etc once the game is underway and there are pieces everywhere. Maybe a black n white version so we can just get something to refer to……
RE: Troops and easy identification painting the bases…
It is a tough problem for a great game with so many infantry versions
I still haven’t committed to one idea over another yet, but for now regular infantry and mountain infantry scuplts I like, so they get to go straight on the board.
For militia I use the white Dutch infantry sculpt because they stand out, so that no-one should ever move them out of their territory. I then painted their base to the colour of the nation they belong to.
Not sure what to do with marines, elites, airbourne, blackshirts, volkstrum etc etc yet.
I have the flat tokens for now but we find they keep getting overlooked a lot.
If someone brings out a generic colour scheme that we can all use it would make videos easier to see whats going on.
RE: Taking the USA Peacetime Bonus Income too literally??
Thank you kindly!!
Id actually overlooked the 1d12 a turn bonus, so its not all doom and gloom for my USA opponent after all!
Thanks Rank Carcass
Taking the USA Peacetime Bonus Income too literally??
Currently going through our first run through using 1939 scenario.
The UK foolishly declared war on Japan and attacked them in Jan 1940. Naturally Japan made combat moves against them on its turn in July 1940.
On the USA chart it states a 5D12 income rise when JAPAN declares war on UK. As this wasn’t the case, does the USA now sit back with the possibility of not being able to reach wartime income?? If not then surely it should read “Japan and the UK are at war” for a bonus 5D12?
Thank you in advance community.
RE: Grasshopper's 8 Sided System (G40)
This 8-sided malarky is preposterous!
It will never work!
Not until someone makes those lovely rounded d8’s with the nations flag symbol in place of the ‘number 1’. Then this will be one of the greatest tweaks to an already excellent game, and praise will rain down to it’s creators.
Until then….bin it…ludicrous.
RE: Chinese Speed Bumps (G40)
Great house rule!
We use an idea that came from General Hand Grenade’s gripe about the whole mountain range and sheer expanse of that part of the world.
- No units at all can move between russia and china via that border of the 3 most western Chinese territories.
- Any unit can move through Mongolia between the 2 countries though, whilst still obeying the Mongolian rule. This way if Japan wants to March into Moscow they need to tackle Mongolia or go round the south via India. If Russia wants to help China they either come through any part of Mongolia or they come via Manchuria.
- No other unit (apart from Russian) can move from Eastern Soviet soil to Western Soviet area, the roadblock is between Yakut SSR and Yenisey. That gives Japan the chance to take 6 territories away from Russia before having to head through the Mongolian pass (Dzavhan or Olgiy) or they stop there.
Feel free to comment, but its working so far for us.
RE: Adelaide, Looking for players South Australia
I’m just up the road……in Cairns!!..pop by mate…
I feel your pain buddy, there are loads of people that wanna play this game but this country is too bloody big
I used triple AAA for a bit on single player until I deemed myself better than the computer. If you change your mind about it, then send me a pm and we can work out how to play by the forum as I’m yet to do it myself too and at least we are in the same time-zone…ish… There is a great vid on youtube I saw just today on how to play via this website forum though…
Its pretty good, only 27 mins long too
All the best mate
The metal Flight stands that FMG used to stock….
IWNGU Gaming can no longer source these from a very quiet FMG.
Does anyone else know where I can get the same from out there. Ive been searching online but cant find anything close.
Thanks to any that can help……(why oh why did I not buy them sooner!)
