The release of Axis & Allies Miniatures - D-Day comes a week closer and that means new previews and new stat cards.. This new expansion allows players new possibilities for army construction and new game mechanics with the introduction of obstacles and heroes. Next week we will preview one of the new hero miniatures and the week following we will preview it's stat card and the rules behind the new game mechanic. First, let's look at the stat cards for last weeks preview minis.
The Defiant Paratrooper gives U.K. forces their own dedicated high defense airborne troops, perfect for recreating scenarios such as Operation Market Garden. The Hetzer gives Axis players a hard-hitting, low-cost, mobile unit that has increased survivability while in cover. Now, let's take a look at two new preview minis.
