Air Bombardment Card Mon, 12 October 2009 22:47
I was reviewing the DoW news announcement for Sword of Stalingrad
(http://blog.daysofwonder.com/?p=1168&language=en) and reread the air bombardment card.

I like the idea of the card but would have preferred new plane miniatures to fulfill this new rule/role. Lieter007's new air units (http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=18151&start=0) have some good suggestions and nice cards.

I guess for now the Air Bombardment card will have to work until new planes arrive with attribute cards... officially. Smile

So the question is when Airpack 2.0 arrives with more plane minis and a new air combat deck?

I am not sure how I would like to see new aircraft introduced... I am not a big fan of the air rules as they are but would like to see more units and capabilities added. Airpack 2?... I could probably be suckered into it but would need more info before purchasing.

I am thinking if DoW is going to move forward with the battle map series they should introduce new units this way.

The only other army expansions I can see are Italians and possibly French... I don't see airplanes being added to these but who knows.

I second that. Army packs, Italians and maybe French and keep those battle maps coming.

Indifferent on an air pack 2.

I could do without the French and Italians (plastic figures that is Embarassed ) but the new card deck I wasn't expecting. What a great addition to the game.

I would love to see an official 3D terrain pak. The home-made stuff I have seen are nice but something from DOW would be great, in it's own carrying case. It would be a few bucks that I am sure but I love this game so much, no problem here. Razz

Would the French units include White flags to indicate surrender? Twisted Evil

I am also in favour of an Italian and French Army pack. It would also be great to have a plane for these nations.

Perhaps one day we will also see models for the mortars and an expansion with those SKDFZ Half tracks !

How good to own ToI... (just kidding) Cool Sdkfz., Panthers, Tigers, Shermans... all I need for a good battle.
But I'm also keen on the idea of releasing new figures for Mem '44.

I use my half-tracks, jeeps and Morris quads as single infantry units. I had toyed with making them available as mechanized infantry, move 1-2 and battle or move 3 with no battle.

Having the extra units makes the board look more pleasing.

I do the same with artillery, one gun with a half-track or truck. The unit always gets removed before the gun.
