Not exactly World War 2, but this unofficial expansion included tanks, along with some fictional units:

Why haven't they come out with a RISK that has tanks and such instead of the little napoleon guys?


It might be a public relations issue. Using Napoleonic figures makes the fighting and conquest seem quaint and old fashioned. If tanks and other modern weapons were used the ugly beast known as political correctness could appear. People might complain.

BTW, the plastic military miniatures used in Risk 2042 are of excellent quality.

Risk 2042 units... tanks, helicopters, missile launchers, hovercraft, and armored cars.

The little AFVs are too small for my stubby blue collar fingers. shake

There is also a variant called "Over the Trenches", which is WWI. Probably not what your looking for though. Was going to buy 2042 myself at on point, but the pieces are all the wrong colors and cost to much. The rules for 2042 are available here http://www.tabletactics.com/riskrules.html for free. Recommend using Axis and Allies or Warhammer 40K epic pieces.

Modern armies may offend someone from one country or other. The old folks well remember invading armies and that there were only turnips to eat that winter, so it causes bitterness. :-)

Wasn't the rule at GEN CON conventions that you could only wear military costumes from military units that existed before 1900? The only way you could wear a uniform from after that was if you really were a current member of the armed forces in question.
