Hi guys, Vergilius over on Forumini has been snooping around Rich Baker's image gallery and has found the images for the Opening Salvoes for Set 6 posted there! :

We already knew about Taiho, the LSTs, Bande Nere & USS Montana, but HMS Eagle, HMS Sheffield, Yamato reprint and the M1 minesweeper are all new!

Can't wait to start seeing the cards for these in the Opening Salvoes (which start tomorrow I think!). I'm especially interested in what they'll give the Yamato re-print - since she's painted as she was on her last sortie during Operation Ten-go (the crew used soot from the funnels to darken her decks to avoid being spotted by US air patrols) - it took 11 torps and 8 bombs to sink her, so some kind of Determination SA might be in order.

So along with the recent WotC slip-up which let us know that Andrea Doria would be in the set we now know 20 of the 40 units :

Andrea Doria - Andrea Doria class BB
