JPN R Nakajima ki-43 "Oscar"
JPN R Type 89B Chi-Ro
JPN C Type 99 LMG
SLO U Motorcycle Recon
SLO R PzKpfw 38(t)

I would have to say the aircraft interest me the most. The early war Stuka, the MS.406, the Oscar and the MiG-1 will all be great additions to the game. Also nice to see them add a couple more Finnish units and the long-awaited Japanese spotter.

As far as reprints go, we're getting another Kubelwagen V (groan), another Morris Reconnaisance Car Mk.2 (groan), another Somua S-35 (may be ok with a better paint job than the last one), another Carro Armato M11/39 (a captured unit used by the Aussies, i.e. cool), a PzKpfw 38(t) (Slovakian, suck it, Czech Republic!) a Sd Kfz 231 (groan), another Matilda II (not Australian, despite the rumour) and another Valentine (South African Valentine II). As far as the Valentine goes, we've had a UK Val I and a Soviet Val VI. They looked like the same sculpt to me, so I'm guessing the South African Val II will be the same. Still, an interesting addition.

I share your sentiments regarding the new set.

The list looks good but how about the models?

I would love to play a squad leader game using Axis and Allies miniatures.

Between D-bane and me, we could equip a couple of divisions with our A&A minis collections. There have been some truly epic battles fought over the last few years.

A Paladin In Citadel said...


I have been reminiscing about Squad Leader lately, going so far as to price out what they cost on eBay.

Like most of my gaming collection, it and mu SL supplements went up in a garage fire. Never got around to replacing them.

Rognar said...

Oh man, that sucks.

Back in my grad school days, we used to experiment with a lot of wargames at our gaming club. Some, like BattleTech, Starfleet Battles and Warhammer really caught on. There was one group that just loved Advanced Squad Leader, but most of us were a pretty intimidated by the rules. Was the game you played an earlier edition?

A Paladin In Citadel said...

Advanced Squad Leader was a big mistake, IMHO. Of course, this coming from a guy who likes original D&D, take my comments with a grain of salt!

Squad Leader had its problems, but ASL just made the game too complicated. Simpler if often better ... if the rules are vague, make an on-the-spot ruling, and move on. Too many rules are fun for the rules-lawyers, but not for the people who just want to play a fun game and reminisce about that sudden reversal or lucky die roll over a pint afterwards!
