Contested Skies Unit Reviews


Veteran SMLE Rifleman – Set III Common
An increased attack against infantry and close assault value compared to the UK SMLE.  The Veteran SMLE is not too bad, and slightly harder to kill because of Steely Resolve. However their cost can quickly add up.  Best used to support your regular infantry. 



Contested Skies Preview 8

Avalon Hill published the latest in their preview of Axis & Allies: Contested Skies, to be released, this Thursday, on March 24, 2006. In this preview we get to see the cards for the miniatures featured last week: Jagdpanzer IV/48 and Messerschmitt Bf109E. The Jagdpanzer has some interesting abilities but still seems to suffer the problem of the slightly overpriced German units.


Axis & Allies Naval Miniatures: War at Sea

It looks like we are in for some more excitement from the world of Axis & Allies Miniatures. Recently a full page ad for a new A&A Minis expansion was found in an Avalon Hill catalog included with the new Rocketville game. The new expansion appears to be a miniatures game, separate from the existing game, that focuses on naval battles. It will have it’s own starter and boosters.
