How do you play the WWII boardgame?

* plastic pieces
* painted plastic pieces
* painted metal minis
* I don't play that game

plastic pieces. Never get around to painting.

I've played it with the unpainted plastic pieces that come with it.

I don't understand why anyone would paint the pieces that come in a board game. A tabletop war-game is different; you are creating a diorama with figures and terrain in which everything is to scale.

Basic plastic.

Plastic pieces that came with it. Though I've played one game at the WWII museum run by a teenager, he made hex terrain about 4 inches across, painted metal minis, etc. Really looked good.

Plastic pieces mainly, but I have played it on my 4x3 board with 90mm hexes with my 20mm collection.

Painted plastic figures and models on a Hexon board. Mostly Airfix.

I've played with the original plastic figures on the game board and with 20mm figures on Hexon II terrain.

It works well with both.

20 mm painted minis on hex mat.

As is from the box. Too much else in need of painting to paint these.

All three but in different aspects.

The plastic thst came with the game. I have also started painting them. The metal however, is from Warmachine.

I did it with 54mm plastic figures and tanks with some paper tanks thrown in… I created the board with offset squares instead of hexes. I also did one of the Overlord scenarios too, it ate up a lot of room.

Basic plastic that comes with the set.

Straight-out-of-box plastic.

I don't understand why anyone would paint the pieces that come in a board game.

I do understand. For instance, I'm collecting Star Trek Tactics ships to spice up Fleet Captains, as it means I don't have to paint.

'44 would be worth painting, but as others said, you'd kind of want to up the terrain, as well.

Reluctantly. The game feels too much like a fancy version of Stratego for my tastes.
