Hello, I have what may be a silly question, but in all my searching I have not been able to locate the answer.

I have the original Gung Ho! and Code of Bushido modules from Avalon Hill, going back to the original printings. With these, do I have everything that is covered in Rising Sun, other than the mini HASL campaign Gavutu, and the other minor features in Rising Sun? Do I need to purchase Rising Sun or am I covered with the two original modules?

thanks for any advice anyone can provide.

Pete

Hi Pete, I think that the main issues would be that some of the scenarios have been updated and that you would need to get the errata from the last Journal for Ch. G.

No compelling reason, lot's of little niggling reasons.

See Mark Pitcavage's comments on the Rising Sun module. (Scroll about 3/4 down the page.)

We intended with Rising Sun to make it so that you would want to buy it but you would not have to buy it if you had CoB and GH!

I purchased RS, even though I have CoB and GH, because there are a couple of Lewis LMG counters that did not exist before.
It is a really futile reason (the only difference between the Lewis and the Johnson LMG, apart from the depiction, si that the former weighs 2PP).

But, please, don't tell my wife about that !whistle

Pete - the other thing that's in RS that isn't in Gung Ho / Code of Bushido / Sand & Blood is the Para-Marines and Marine Raider counters which were originally included in Operation Watchtower. If you have OWT already, then you're covered.
