I'm interested in getting this, and I have both Awakening the Bear 1st edition and Price of Honour (Poland expansion) - will I be able to play with the components from these, or would I actually have to purchase the second edition? I really hope I don't, that would be pretty unfortunate!

Thanks for the help.

Yes and no. If you want to play firefights as designed you will need all new units introduced in 2nd edition. If you don't mind substituting similar units, then you should be ok. However nobody has detailed the actual differences by firefight as far as I know. But there have been prior threads on this topic. Look at threads on page 2 or 3 to find the latest or search if feeling lucky.

Hello Haley,
Lewis is correct. You only need to substitute a few Units that are not found in the first edition.

Would it be possible to get a list of the units that need to substituted and the recommended substitutes?

Substitute NKVDs with SMGs and Tank Hunters with Pioneers or Rifles if all Pioneers are in use.

Thank you for the reply. Looking forward to playing the solo expansion with my first edition.

If this could somehow be pinned to the top of the forum with LARGE LETTERS it might not get asked as often. This is, I think, the third or fourth thread on this very topic. Almost as prevalent as the old "when will it ship" threads.

I updated the game's description to include a note with a link to this thread. That might help a bit.

It got me here! I was about to sell CoH: AtB but then began to hear that the solo expansion may work with 1st Edition after all. Glad to see it confirmed with only a few tweaks required.

I made myself a file with all the missing pieces for print out on sticky paper. They look quite perfect when using the additional counters you have from all the other boxes.

Uwe, is it OK for you that I upload this here, or rather not?
