As there are some new miniatures in the advanced game (heavy artillery, new fighters etc), will there be an updated list of where to buy the necessary metal miniatures if one chooses to go that route?

I will update the list and email it out to everyone.

The main difference is for Artillery / AT guns / AA guns.

The difference being - that since the miniatures are mounted on counters - the artillery from Skytrex do not work so well as their molds have solid bases - so they would cover up the combat values on the counter-bases.

So the cheap alternative is to use plastic Axis and Allies artillery and AA guns.  The expensive alternative is to use GHQ miniatures - and I'll put the list together.  I think the map and game look pretty nice - so getting the nice miniatures over time just add to it.

For all the planes you can possibly want use the Tumbling Dice 1/600th scale miniatures - you can get them at Brookhursthobbies.com. 

I will put a list together - but part of the fun is to search skytrex, GHQ and brookhurst to find what you want.  For example - for the German panzer division - I like to use a mix of different Pzkw III and IV models - just to have some cool variety.  Since the combat values are printed on the counter-bases  - you are not confined to kust using one mold for your units.

I personally like using the same mold, it causes less confusion about which units are on the board.

My friend Jeremy of Field Marshall Games is working on bringing out a whole line of country specific units in plastic that are just amazing in their detail.  Also, there will be multiple molds for many of the base units so that one could use them for different levels of the different types.

Right now, Italy is just coming out as the first country, but he is working on all the major powers and some extras too.

http://www.fieldmarshalgames.com/field-marshal-combat-units.html

The colors of the powers will match those of the Combat Dice that he produces, which is close to the latest WotC A&A colors- but not always.  He will also be doing some black Germans eventually too.

So between all the older plastic pieces from the various MB, Hasbro/WotC, Xeno, etc. A&A games and some metal miniatures that you may have incorporated together for your games, you can mix in these new molds and cover virtually all your needs.

A few weeks ago, I received the disk from John and I must say, I am completely satisfied with this great work. It is superb! After a long effort to print out the labels and remount the various armies, navies, and air forces, the result is unbelievable. The map is beautiful, the labels are colorful, and this is an excellent (perhaps the best) game on WWII. If you like strafing airfields, airborne assaults, U-boat campaigns, and much, much more, this is your game.

Good work to all who participated in this very worthy game. You have accomplished what other game designers attempt but never quite make it. Congrats!!!

I look forward to the Pacific version when its completed. Again, kudos to all!

Larry

Glad to hear it Larry! - Lots of input from many folks!! It was a group effort. Looking forward to Pacific!

It takes effort to put the game together but the playtime is worth it. We have spent much time coming up with strategies pregame - Implementation is sooo fun.

We have spent ALOT of time trying to break the game, closing loopholes, etc - and have made many adjustments to make this a great play!
