Someone must be an Ex-Marine
GMT just posted the counters for the upcoming Combat Commander: Pacific. The top left counter represents a squad of true supermen! 8 morale, 7 range, plus respectable firepower (6) and movement (5). These guys will totally kick butt. I imagine facing them with some 4-3-3 Axis Minors... ugh! Actually the US Marines did have a small contingent supporting Operation Torch against the Vichy French, so such an ugly matchup would be historical. The sorry 5-4-3 garrison Marine counter is surprising. It must represent retirees from the local military golf course perhaps. Anyway, the Japanese counters are posted as well, though not nearly as impressive. It will be interesting to see how the scenarios balance things out.
Anyone else have this pre-ordered?
