V4 opinions in blog

Thx 4 a fair perspective...

...that is also encouraging to new players.

I am half in the same camp and yet also different.

Never owned a N Africa force until now. But played v3 for last 3 years. Did some simple demos in v4.

I'm jazzed about the price point and starter box approaches in the early v4 releases.

My Mid-War stuff has mostly been Americans, though I did build a simple Tiger company (3 tiger and 3 pzIII tanks) and I am slowly upgrading my EW Fallschirm with more MW stuff. So, at this stage I don't have anything for V4 midwar. I have thought about a DAK army in the past but I am still collecting stuff for Team Yankee.  Until a V4 MW American book comes out, I need to think about how to convert the little I have without having to incorporate a crap-ton more stuff I can't afford or don't want at this time.

 

In the interim,  I can look at how much stuff I can proxy without going too far out on the proxy limb, what I can borrow, and/or what I can trade for.

Yes.  Happy to see new edition rules, as have no played since V3 released, but not happy about dragging out the re-release of army books.  Just like GW does.

And that is why the US is always getting into Wars & Conflicts,  so the historic gaming industry has something to work with.

If someone is waiting for Italians or Americans before jumping onto the v4 bandwagon, the RCDD (Rose City Dukes and Duchesses) plan on running a virtual Tunisia campaign after the American and Italian handbooks and kits come out. Don't know if we will do "Torch".

 

You panzer guys who want your Tigers in a historic scenario can legitimately field them in this campaign.

 

Representing a few of the many "underdog forces" (mostly British equipment and organization, but each has their own unique character):

- I will feature in my Leclerc Column of Free French "L" Force

- also the Greek Sacred Band
