There is a pdf on the Warlord site that covers units not found in the basic army book. They don't get any special rules (not many units do to be honest), but they can be veteran units, something which the US forces in BA don't have many of. Bolt Action generally doesn't award special rules to specific units except for Paras, Commandos and the like. It's not like 40K where every unit does it's own thing.

I like the idea of having mecha. Personally I own a 15mm Gearkriege model to go with my FoW Americans.

As for rules, I'm sure there's something cooked up by some enthusiasts somewhere. There is for mixing FoW and Gearkrige.

Or the rules proposed by Spevna look good. Afterall you are talking about another classification. A mecha wouldn't fit very well with either wheeled or tracked rules.

Not read the American entries in the rule book, but this PDF from Warlord has lots of stuff not in the book, including U.S vets.

Bit of threadomancy, but I found a bloke on the Warlord Forums had knocked these mecha rules up.

Worth a read I reckon.
