I was just wondering if anybody had played any games where the same faction was used by more than one player - like Allies vs Allies or Axis vs Axis.

I have just Allies and Axis, but am hoping to try out a 3-player scenario from the Zverograd book sometime, and was just wondering if there would be any issues to have say 2 Allied factions and 1 Axis faction in a 3-player game together.

I can't think of any issues there would be, and I have more than enough units to field a couple armies of the same faction.  Has anyone tried this, and has there been any issues?

I played a three way Axis/Axis/Allies game.

There were not any problems. Just make sure you can keep the shared factions units clearly defined and you should have no issues.

 Honofactional… that is an awesome alternative terminology to mirror match!

Ah, mirror match!  I figured it was called something, but I'm new to miniature games and didn't know what it was.

Stuff using mirror match, homofactional sounds way cooler.

 I've always used the age-old military term…

"Blue-on-Blue"
