Re:Relive the early hours of World War II, far in the east with Memoir ’44: The Battles of Khalkhin- Wed, 08 February 2017 22:42
Movement Question for the Armored Cars:
is the movement of AC 4 or 2 hexes in the scenarios released in "The Battles of Khalkin-Gol" ?
According the card Troops 31 the movement is 4 hexes, but in the scenario speciales rules is noted, that Armor may move only 2 hexes.
Armored Cars should be treated as Armor, so I am not sure about the movement.
Personally, I guess, the movement should be 4 hexes, as AC is a fast driving reconaissance vehicle .

In the Khalkin-Gol scenario special rules, Tanks only move 2 hexes instead of the normal 3 hexes.

Unaffected by the above rule are Armored Cars which move up to 4 hexes and Japanese tankettes which move up to 3 hexes.

Not to worry! Days of Wonder will let everyone know when these are available and where you can buy them!! Cool



Still waiting to hear from Days of Wonder where I can buy this. It's not been in any UK shops. Contrary to your "not to worry" I am worrying, because I have heard nothing about why I can't buy this. I don't mind waiting, if I know it's coming. Right now it looks like nothing is coming.

Today Screaming Eagle and I finished our campaign.
In general I have the feeling the Japanese benifit of their fexibility (inf move two and can give the first blow with the additional die). While the Russians have problems with the Commissar. I would say this tips in favour of the Japs. Our result support the feeling....
Jap vs Rus: 48-30 medals.

So DoW are actually making this expansion? I don't understand why it's not available in the UK?

As far as I know the new expansion is at this moment available in the USA, France and Belgium. In Holland it is not yet available. In UK I have no information about.

Playing solo, I just completed the fast version of the Khalkhin-Gol Campaign -- six standards map games with no breakthrough. The campaign ended in a draw, although the Soviets outscored the Japanese 24-22 in medals. There is a lot to like in this series of games. I especially enjoyed fighting over the same terrain during multiple battles, which enhanced the campaign by giving it a familiar "we've been here before" feeling, as well as the two sudden death opportunities for the Soviets. The armored cars are also a great addition. Their mobility always seemed to put them right in the middle of the action. And I love the frequent use of the cavalry, which is one of the more fun unit types to order in my opinion. I'm looking forward to trying out the breakthrough games next.

A few days ago I played Bain Tsagan Heights against sam1812.

My Japanese forge an early lead by using ARMOR ASSAULT and i am lucky one of my tankettes survives AMBUSH when it could not retreat. I lead 4 to 1 as I have killed off two infantry near Remisova Hill and an infantry on my left and tank on my right.

But my attacks bog down as I miss the center MG infantry three turns in a row when it was down to 1 fig and a 1 fig tank too.

The battle swings back into my favor as I take the Remisova Hill medal and lead 7 to 4. I later take the Bain Tsagan Heights medal and kill off a Armored Car to take an 9 to 6 lead and advance an Armored Car to be able to reach a 1 fig tank on my next turn.

Sam takes a gamble and moves up his 1 fig tank. It gets two hits on my armored car with 2d and then takes it out with a grenade roll. A miss here and it would probably been all over as my Armored Car could have attacked his 1 fig tank with a 3d attack in my next turn for the final medal.

A turn later he bumps his score up to 8. Things are getting too close for comfort.

With very few order options in my hand, I order two of my infantry to charge against two 2 fig tanks and use my last Molotov Cocktail in my last attack with 4d and kill off one of the tanks for the hard fought win.

Most of the action occurred around the Remisova Heights. I lost two tanks, all three tankettes, an armored car and two infantry. I eliminated two tanks, an armored car, three infantry, one MG infantry and an AT infantry and got the two medals for the hills.

This was a very tense and interesting battle. Well played Sam.

£72 in UK is just bonkers. It's like it's OoP before it's even arrived. What's going on?

You can't buy it in the UK anywhere as far as i can see. The base game is also no longer available anywhere in the UK. Dark times for memoir 44 i fear.

As this still has not turned up in the U.K. I too ordered from Belgium using the same business as pgorman stated in the post above. Ordered Monday 20 March, arrived today. Excellent service. I still do not understand why the expansion is not available in the U.K. and I do feel that Asmodee could at least post on the form to explain why. Nonetheless at least I do have this now

Mine came today, ordered through a game shop in St Louis and had it shipped about 60 miles to my door. Awesome!

Khalkin-Ghol is finally available in Spain via Dracotienda and Planetongames.

But, the core game in English is out of stock in all the shops in Spain (and Europe)reasonably priced.

Since I'm going to be running a Khalkhin-Gol overlord event at an upcoming game con, I decided it was time to paint my KG miniatures. And after playing the campaign, I noticed that there are scenarios where the Soviets use Japanese tankette miniatures and Japanese use Soviet armored car miniatures. So I painted two tankettes and two armored cars for the opposing armies.

Japanese Units:

Soviet Units:

I hate to paint miniatures (said it here before) and that's why I play WWII board games instead of miniatures games. But, since the EP, I've had to paint some of my M44 miniatures. I also painted my French Infantry figures today. (sorry, no picture until I get the bases painted).

Embarassed Thanks, I really don't like doing it. I don't have the collection of paints, or the workspace to do it right. My workspace was an outdoor patio set with umbrella on the patio. But the weather yesterday was beautiful and cool. (Today we're supposed to have rain from about 10am through the afternoon!) I have yet to paint my cavalry figures from EP, as I don't have enough of the right colors yet (or the patience).

I hadn't realised I had been away from this for so long. Just saw this post on Monday, and immediately ordered. I was worried because my nearest game store had sold out, but ordered it from London and it arrived this morning. It looks fantastic.

Also noticed that there are a few more official scenarios, even one for the Italo-Greek War.

My brother is coming on Thursday for a couple of days. we will resume our tour through WW2. Poland 39 and Finland 39/40 are completed and we are about two thirds of our way through France 40. Only playing official as otherwise we will never finish!
