After Battle of the Bulge, what's going to be your next game?

What would you like to see?

Barbarossa Campaign game 1941-45 with axis minor allies and the following new units:

Self Propelled artillery
German elephant tanks
Russian su-122

SS panzers units ( black tiger II tanks from the bulge game)
Panzer grenadiers ( halftracks)

shock troops ( troops with winter clothes)
Guard Armor ( larger KV-1 tanks)

back to D6 system, rail, terrain, weather rules

card system that has some important combat options for each side and random events

oil rules

partisans

350 pieces (germans recolored greygreen and soviets recolored earth brown -- Italians and axis allies light grey.

no naval interation in this game.

that is all.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

Instead of Shock Troops like Imperious Leader said, what about ski troops? The Canadian American Devil's Brigade used skis and so did the Fins during the Winter War. And yeah, weather rules, terrain advantages, all that stuff Imp said.

Wait, are we still talking about BoB or Operation Barbarossa?

Btw, 350 pieces is good but the more pieces the better.

Eastern Front would be massively impressive and a real slugfest.

I'd buy it.

What I'd like to see first, though (after Guadalcanal) is North Africa, with Panzer IIIs and Crusaders, M13/40s and the usual Infantry, Artillery, plus differentiated AT guns--and hidden-plot minefields, maybe!

Plus the influence of Malta, and maybe a naval game for Malta Convoys and the Torch landings. But at least Rommel vs. the Brits. With the advent of Trucks and Supply in BotBulge, this seems a logical extension.

Actually, I'd buy almost any Larry Harris design, short of "Axles and Alleys: the Battle of Black Friday Mall."
I've loved games since childhood and always will.

Any battle from the Eastern Front would be great! Kursk, Stalingrad, you pick it, I'll play it! :D

As long as it's W.W.II themed and got Larry's hand in it, and has a few new unit pieces, I'm going to be happy and will purchase it.

I rather see an Axis and Allies Europe Revised game. Create a remake of Axis and Allies Europe but change some stuff.

1. Add Italy
2. Expand Africa down to at least Ethopia
3. Begin the game in 1939
4. New Convoy Rules for England such as special unit boat piece that needs to be in the convoy spot or something along those lines.
5. Ability to buy ICs.
6. Remove the oil money thing. Never made sense in Axis and Allies Europe to begin with.
7. Add Cruisers to the game.
8. Add Dive Bombers to the game.

Just some ideas.

Yea 100% what he just said. Except 3 new units:

Halftracks for mech infantry

Divebomber for germany ( allready done) and you can replace normal german fighter with new me-109

Soviets get PE-2

Brits get swordfish bi-planes?

USA gets?

Heavy tanks:

Germany: tiger 2

Soviets: SU - 155

UK: Comet

USA: Persing

Italy: ?

We need a cruiser unit.

Germany: Graf spee ( perfect for 1939 scenario)

Italy: Zara

UK: Hood

USA: Indianapolis

USSR: ?


all with d12 system.
