One of my biggest complaints about the new A&A is its lack of plastic pieces for industrial complexes, AA guns, air bases, and naval bases. While it's easy to replace major industrial complexes and AA guns with parts from earlier versions of the game, I'm currently either searching for replacement miniatures from other war games or thinking about sculpting my own parts.

Does anyone have any suggestions that fit the scale of common A&A pieces? I'm painting my set so the base color of the new pieces doesn't matter. My first thought was a Monopoly house or hotel for the minor industrial complex, but I'm still stumped for the air and naval bases.

If I did end up sculpting these new pieces myself what similarly abstract shape do you think would be fitting? Would anyone be interested in some for themselves?

Xeno (sp?) Games makes some smaller I.C.'s. And if your a DIY kinda person, I seen a pic somewhere of a guy who cut one section off of the regular I.C. and lowered the stacks...

For naval bases you could take a look at the ditto from War! Age of Imperialism. I can't find a good picture on the Geek, but it's a mini of some naval supplies like an anchor and a barrel etc.

Instead of using houses or hotels from the regular Monopoly game, I would use the new industrial buildings from Monopoly City. They look exactly like the factories from A&A. Unfortunately, there are only 8 1-block industrial buildings and 4 2-block industrial buildings.

I was thinking for the airbases, of gluing a nut (of nuts and bolts fame) to the top a Sorry! piece. Sort of to simulate an air traffic control tower. This might be too top heavy though so maybe a washer onto the base would help. I think this might clutter up the already too small islands though. Blow up boxes would have really helped with this game.

Litko is still making tons of tokens.......

Though, I do prefer scavanging my old A&A games for pieces rather than tokens, but YMMV.
