Cross Book Balance?

Cross Book Balance?

Postby Troy » 04 Aug 2017

How easily do the forces in similar time periods, but different source books, cross over to play against each other?

I'm thinking running some "what if" or "training maneuvers" with Russians from Barbarossa vs Brits from Tobruk?

Is it fairly well balanced? What about other book crossovers?

Each book has lists designed to be played against each other.

Some may work against others, some might not.

In all honesty, balance and ahistorical match ups are not something we design for really...

I imagine Barbarossa Soviets and Tobruk British might work for a clash in 1941 in Iran (obviously both were on the same side there at the time). Not much British armour there though.

A 1945 Western Allies v Soviets Or 1941 Barbarossa Germans v 1941 Western Desert British (Hitler invades the Middle East instead of doing Barbarossa)

Also 1940 Frencinfantry list v 1941 British. This one is actually historical *(Syria and Madagascar)
