Sadly none of them excite me Bill.

Italy and Crete would be my choice.

When Stalingrad is released that will be two Soviets on the trot, surely we don't need another so soon, so I think we can cross out the first two selections.

1.) Japanese against British empire
2.) Polish Campaign
3. Japanese against US (No need to distinguish between Marines and army, as far as I'm concerned. Moreover, in many cases they actually fought campaigns together. An op card or deck or two will be sufficient to represent the marine Corps, i'd say)

BTW, I miss the French and BEF against the Germans (Case yellow). That'd actually be my second choice. In a way even my first, but I think what the game really needs now, besides more [balanced]scenarios is the Japanese as a playable nation.

Sure Bill, it wasn't a criticism, just an honest reaction.

I would also like to see some individual operations & battles like Narvik, Dieppe, Dunkirk, Arras, Anzio, Casino and Caen

In other words a key battle expansion rather than a theatre one.

A similar one could be done for the Eastern front, but I think the Pacific needs a theatre expansion.

I would LOVE to see a combined ops expansion, bringing naval and air forces into the mix, and that would enhance the Pacific expansion significantly as well as all other theatres.

Have you thought of doing a deal with Axis & Allies collectable minis as all these models and moulds already exist?

Hello

I hope you can make more expansions from the russian front.( Germany vs Russia )
And some expansion involving paratropers/comandoes. American,English and German.
Maybee also and expansion of Germany last days. Battle of Berlin.

I would also like a straight up unit builder pack with new units for all countries. just new vehicles,equipment and infantry.

Clicking that green button made some reflections in my mind.


1.I would say that a proper scenario editor kitted with all the available expansions is what Tide of Iron needs more than anything else right now.

2.IMHO A possible way of building/developing the TIDE OF IRON series for 1A GAMES might be to release box sets on distinctive levels:

Big Box Expansions: to introduce new major powers/theatres/eras to the game. (e.g. Japan/The Far East, France/Blitz-period, Italy)

Standard Box Expansions: for specific eras, and/or battles (Kursk, Late War etc.)

Scenario/Campaign Packs: also including a few map boards, special map overlays, specialization tokens, cards, and some figures.


3.The real need to have a separate set of figures in different colours for all the minor Axis and Allied powers is questionable. As I reckon specialization tokens, operational/divisional/strategy cards are more than enough to represent any special units like Bersaglieri, Fallschirmjäger, Soviet Guards, US Marines or Waffen SS.

I would think an Italian campaign would offer more than the first three choices combined (so I voted for the last three).

Phil i think that deal, A&A minis, would be hard as Hasbro is the parent company and deals with them are not easy. oh i knew it wasn't a criticism but your reaction.

we have been talking about the scenarios editor, scenario packs, battle specific sets and scenario balancing.

we really wanted to get a feel as to what our fans wanted next. Personally i would like to do Poland and Russo-Japan since their 75th anniversaries are next year the France 40 the year after and then a huge collection of 41 stuff in 2016, but i also wanted the fans to have some say in our direction.

I know what you mean about Hasbro et al because I am a retail buying co-ordinator by profession, though in a different sector.

However, it occurs to me that the A&A war at sea range has long since run it's course and I don't think it's being supported anymore. Therefore the moulds will be being depreciated by Hasbro and there may even be terminal stock going cheap.

Just a thought.

Phil

Ideally I would like a new big box expansion in a new theatre, but I understand that is probably not realistic. New scenario books, maps, etc. would be welcomed.

As a resent convert to War At Sea, the thought of combining them with TOI would be a dream come true, but in reality it is not going to happen.

I have bought every expansion from TOI and will continue to do so as I like the game so much, so whichever way you go Bill I will be a buyer.

Agreed on the special units. However, I do feel that NATIONS need their own figures (most notably Italy, France and Poland). Obviously it goes without saying that the japanese would get their own set of units.

I "hate" having to pretend that the American figures in memoir 44 actually represent the Poles or the French. They need their own figures.

I feel differently, miniatures are an expensive investment if they get little usage. I have no interest at all in buying Polish, Finnish, italian or French units.

OK. Let's agree to disagree.

There are also people that aren't interested in the Pacific and there will also be people that won't be bjuying Stalingrad because they only want to play the US vs its adversaries. I do think many people WILL be interested in Polish, French and Italian troops, so I hope 1agames will deliver.

BTW, there's no reason why they would see little use. The best expansion to date for CoH, e.g. is The Polish expansion. The Italians could be used with the already available DotF and the French could even be a large boxed expansion.

I don't see disagreement as a problem. It just reflects differences in gaming preferences, and that is what Bill is looking for.

Personally I believe that minor nations will be a niche market and will be a much harder sell than other expansions. We will see who is right in due course.

Btw I traded COH because I found the game as dry as dust, which is a shame because the components and manual were outstanding. Different strokes eh?

I for my part am always slightly sceptical when people from US makes a game for the US market with US vs its adversaries. I'm always scared that the US will be 'buffed up' for that reason.

Hmmm, GMT doesn't do that, i have seen no evidence that Bill does, and the TOI system to date certainly doesn't do that, so why would you assume that might change?

I'm not saying anybody does it on purpose. I just know that it can happen.
