Elbowsanchez, I like the idea of having a "puzzle" map, each country a different stain color. I would probably not have the countries removable but maybe have the county marker interchangable. Another idea I have been considered is making a map out of a thin layer of metal mounted on wood and then putting small magnets on the pieces. This map would be a material I have not done before and I think it would be great to have pieces that did not move whenever you hit the board (also cat proof :) ) .

Quick question, what is your airfield marker?

This is a map/table that I came accross that is sort of what you talking about. The following table took it to the next level and then some. Thanks again, AAgator

I made a map where the base was blue foam board and then the land was another piece of foam board glued on top. It makes a pretty cool 3-D effect.
It was a map of the middle east for a U.S. and Britain and Israel vs. Iran and possibly Russia game.

Years of collecting has come up with most of my AA stuff now.

Infantry is Axis & Allies Miniatures.
Tanks are from GHQ Models.
Some of the Artillery are GHQ. 88's mainly.
You can use GHQ Destroyers as they are close in scale.
The Japanese Carrier mods where made using an exacto knife and jewelers file.
Basic paint scheme on most everything but have also noted some really great detailed units from allworkandnoclay
Fortess America cities are used as MAJOR IC's (idea from Kreighund)
Some of the Bombers are AA Miniatures War @ Sea edition.
Hey there ElbowSanchez... really nice setup. I used various pieces for my AA50th and painted them as well, was working on doing the same for global... do you know where one might purchase those Fortress America cities? I know about HBG and FMG projects and intend on using those... but would still like to get a hold of some of those FA cities without having to buy the game.

Hi,

Best bet is EBay. Many time people sell partial gamesets.

Thank you for the props.

Hey Elbowsanchez,

Great work on the painting of the miniatures! It looks great! I was wondering, where did you find the small stands for the planes? I have been looking for a while. Thanks for the great photos and hard work!

Aloha kramhoog!

The plastic stands are from Axis & Allies Miniatures, the Soviet stands from a different wargame flames of war firestorm campaign, and well then some are just paperclips that were bent using a needle nose pliers. It's easy these days to use a super small drilll bit and drill the bottom of the, "stock" aircraft for use with the cheapo paperclip method. Pick your own base, circle, star, etc...

Have they ever thought, even mass produced or hand made & painted, generic packs for all A&A games, or, specific for eg Classic, or, sets just for eg bombers, thanks,Pellulo
