The latest preview for Axis & Allies Miniatures: D-Day has arrived. This week we get a preview of a German Hero unit and also a Veteran German Infantry. The next preview will be the unit gallery.
The Russians are very interesting as a faction. They almost have at least one of everything; heavy medium and light tanks, artillery, cavalry, an assortment of infantry, and two commanders with great command abilities. About the only noticeable units they don’t have are AA and Machine-Gun teams.
The American army provides us with a wide variety of generally aggresively costed units; the M4A1 and Mustang are prime examples. Their army list provides a lot of units with interesting combat abilities;covering fire pinpointer, veteran crew, flamethrower, hard charger, etc. In fact with the Americans they often have so much that it’s hard to decide what to work with.
Yet another great preview of the upcoming Axis & Allies Miniatures: D-DAy expansion is available at Avalon Hill. In this preview, we get the stats cards for the much anticipated obstacles.
Today, Avalon Hill published preview number 6 of Axis & Allies Miniatures: D-Day. The stats for the Marder II and the Somua S-35. We also get a preview of the new obstacle pieces that will be in the new set.
The British provide us with an interesting mix of units. Before 1944 most of their tanks are undergunned and fairly ineffective against infantry (the M3 Stuart being a notable exception). However, they have quite a few staple AI units, including the tournament-worthy Humber Scout Car. With their units the British seam to emphasize an infantry army supported by heavier tanks, though other forces will work quite well.
The Romanian Army thus far seems heavily prejudiced against enemy tanks, making them a slightly more effective minor nation in later war games. However they sacrifice a lot of anti-infantry capability for this.
Two D-Day Axis & Alles Miniatures previews in one week! Avalon Hill just release the stats cards for the Supermarine Spitfire and the Focke-Wulf 190A. We also get a preview of two new miniatures.
