Iconic Sculpts in 1941

If you're looking for a quick or introductory game of Axis & Allies this is the one. It also has a very special collection of never before seen plastic units.
Just to mention a few: German Tiger tank, Russian IS2 tank, US P40 Warhawk, German FW-190 Folkwolf, Japanese Kongo class battleship and the HMS Hood, and oh yeah... the German He-111 Heinkel bomber.

Iconic Sculpts in 1941

Larry, would you mind please confirming what each of the sculpts in this game are? We know a few already, but a complete list from the guy who knows would help clear up a few questions (like the Allied carrier).

Thank you!

Figured the Kostromitinova would have appeared in WaS before the board game. What an unusual choice to represent allied carriers.

Allied carrier - Kostromitinova class (USSR)

In a way, it is good to get this one out of the way, and have a good laugh at the bizarreness.

Have the same feel about the JS, KV would have been a cool choice for the soviets. Hope the KV gets a turn in a future release.

Question now is...

What are they using in the new 2nd Edition?

Wonder why AA.org has the allied carrier as, "UK Ark Royal" in its article :?: :?: :?:

The AA41 rulebook does not tell what the sculpts are like other versions of the game...
