:shock: AWSOME :!: :D finaly a separate Italy! :D
This is my second favorite thing about the new game.
If Italy had it's own country specific units that would be to cool 8) :!: ,
but you could save cost and just use German units that where colored differently than those included for Germany itself.
But my vote is for unique pieces.

Their is a lot to dijest here but Having Italian units would be my great hope. Id use the same molds as germany except the Infantry, battleship, fighter, tank, and artillery piece. For the artillery piece id use the one that the allies have but for the rest it would have to be unique to give the proper flavor to Italian pieces. Hopefully you can basically also have the minor axis allies whose units would have a lower combat value but include Finland, Hungary, Rumania, and Bulgaria as well as Italy all commanded by the same player. Also make sure the germans are recolored that same field grey as they had in the original game, while these new units are to be light grey.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

Now thats a good idea too, giving Italy the minor axis powers to command.
Kinda like Xeno's E@W expansion.
I love that game.....I don't know why i didn't think about that too. :?

Minor Axis allies? I don’t think so.

Will Italy also have separate control markers? I would have thought any gains made by the Italians are pretty much German conquests, unless that's what you have in mind.

It would be nice to have Italy fighting for it's own IPC's.
If that's the case, control markers would be needed.
I hope a separate and independant Italy survives the creation process and becomes a reality in the finished product.
