Thanks for the comments and tips Ober.
I have to agree even the USA isn't that well outfitted for the Pacific threater. The Marines aren't very well represented in the game, especially against the Japanese. Love the "How do you use a rifle, Mac!" SA and you likely can reduce the Cavalry's cost a couple of points but other than that the cards look good.
That's one of my projects for this summer. I'm gaming out 1942 this year so I'm working on the Philippines right now. Later I'm going to do some Kokoda Trail games and then Guadalcanal. So I'll be working on cards for the Australians (both Militia and 2AIF troops) and for the USMC/US Army forces that fought on New Guinea.
Thanks for the comments on the cards. I noticed a few errors crept in here and there that I need to fix (like the Artillery units). I'll try out the cavalry with 5 points and see.
Are you using Photoshop, MSPaint or gimp to make the cards? Adding an image is usually a matter of pasting a image into the card and in your photo editing software. Once we know what you are using we can give you a hand getting them in.
I'm using Picasa 3 and I'm not overly happy with it. Once you add text to a picture you can go back and edit it. You have to start all over again so you've got to be careful with proofreading. I want to be able to import pictures of miniatures and national symbols into the card jpgs. I haven't been able to figure that part out though.
Welcome again, and I'm off to explore your site.
Thanks! My blog is pretty dusty, but I kind of forgot about it until recentally. It'll see a bit of use over the coming months as I gear up and do more Axis and Allies games. I love the card database here. It's been a huge help in helping me to design my cards.
Anyway, back to the cards.
