I'll be checking in on this thread now and then and hope I can answer any questions you may have.
Unless they milk some kind of "Gold" edition (I wouldn't put it past WOTC to milk more $$$$$ out of franchise) I don't know if we'll see anything more than what we've seen realistically. Honestly, I think the franchise is over. Sure there will always be those that clamour for super detailed variant versions but they mostly go unheard.
Larry is it safe to say the book is closed on AA, considering you and WOTC working on others projects with different themes???
I think the World Wars still has allot of steam left in them, you get what you put into it, thanks, Pellulo
PS Great War minis would be fun too.
The last game to really make a serious splash was AA50 (Anniversary), since then G40 and 1914 have made a little headway but those are really for hardcore AAfans. The general opinion on the widely spread 1941 and 1942 (2nd ed.) are "meh" at best.
PS still buy those WWI minis.

I already use the chips for units system to make 1914 manageable; if the "Last Infantry Standing" rule is used in WWII versions then other land units sculpts are obsolete.
Or is Axis and Allies pointless without the artillery, armour and aircraft models?

I'm still (been waiting for 8 years) interested in a Stalingrad or Kursk game, and I think there are many more with me.
Even the Falaise pocket will do, if Americans must be included.
Or the invasion of Sicily, if those (...) Italians must be included.
Axis & Allies is, after chess, the most memorable boardgame I played.
Sadly my uncle, whom I played with, past away 2 years ago.
It's sad to witness the demise of this once great miniatures game with the revised/'41/'42/'14 lineup.
I hope mr. Harris will return to a WW2 tactical rather than strategical game after his civil war game.
