#63 Last Chance to pre-order Crucible of Steel and Blood and Jungle

Bounding Fire Productions

I just heard from Sam Tyson of Bounding Fire Productions and Crucible of Steel and Blood and Jungle should be shipping this week.  Unfortunately, they will come off of the special pre-order price as soon as they arrive here as my pre-order quantity will be locked in.  So this is your last chance to get big savings.

There was a mistake in communication and we have still not received the new scenario pack from our friends in Canada but George assures me that it is in transit and should be here any moment.  My sincerest apologies to those of you that have already purchased it from me and are patiently waiting for it to arrive.

March Madness 2017

MM2017

Often I have looked around the convention room and thought quietly to myself, these are possibly the most refined minds in the art of strategy and tactics on the planet.  I wonder what would happen if these masters of cardboard were put to the test in the real world of combat.  Barking orders and studying maps.  Well MM2017 pack has a what if scenario with it’s own map depicting an attack on an ASL convention center by elite SS squads.  The defenders of the hotel consist of Partisans and a whole lot of dummies.  I can’t wait to play this one. It would be neat to see a scenario with matching maps from all the  major tournaments.

#61 Bocage 101 video and Sale – Iron Crosses tourney AAR

Image result for bocage ww2

Some of my all time favorite experiences in ASL have been among the hedgerows of Normandy.  After all you have the Big Red One,  5 separate SS Panzer divisions, Panzer Lehr, US and British Airborne, 29th Infantry, etc.   Although a little intimidated at first, I found that the bocage rules are actually quite simple and when used to their full potential, they hold many tricks and advantages to both the attacker and the defender.  In this video I will try to cover some of the rules and nuances of bocage in order of phase that will help you breakout of the Norman countryside or push the invaders back into the sea.

 

Bocage sale items:

MMP – Yanks

BFP – Beyond the Beachhead 2

BFP – Operation Cobra

AAR for ‘Where the Iron Crosses Grow Team Tournament 2017’

The Somme, Stalingrad, Okinawa, Kernersville.  These place names bring fear to the bravest of warriors.   This year we had another 16 of the finest and nicest ASL players converge in the heart of the Triad NC to face off in four days of bloodshed and burning steel.

New to the group were Jeremy Busby, Mike Rickman and John Dober.  John has been a long time friend from ASLOK but this was my first time meeting Jeremy and Mike.  I cannot stress with more sincerity that all three were a perfect fit for the fun friendly spirit that this tourney tries to convey.  I look forward to seeing them again next year or sooner.

The teams were drafted by captains who were awarded the honor for no other reason than being the first to arrive.   Hayes Wauford got first pick followed by Kevin Conley, followed by myself.  We tried to pick players to our teams that we have regular opportunity to play so that we could play new people on the opposing teams.  Scoring is calculated with a +1 for a win and a -1 for a loss.  The team with the highest + is the champion.  The two players with the highest individual  + play in a championship game.  Team ‘Ken’s Mom’ took an early lead and never looked back holding on for the win with a +9.  John finished with a 4-0 record and I finished with a 5-0 record so we faced each other on Sunday for the individual championship game.  Here are the team names, players and final +/- standings.

Conscripts: -3.  Hayes Wauford (-2), Mike Rickman (-1), Mika Harvalla (0). Sandy O’Neil (0).

Col. Klink: -6. Kevin Conley (-1), Dave Stephens (-1), Ken Knott (-3), Jeremy Busby (-1).

Ken’s Mom: +9. Derek Ritter (+6), John Dober (+3), Tim Brieddy (+2), Ray Woloszyn (0), Jeff Jordan (-2).

I have created the Group ‘Advanced Squad Leader Starter Kit’ on Facebook for those of you that want your own arena to post and ask questions in a strictly SK forum.  It is an open group so you don’t have to join to read the posts, but we would be happy if you did.

Making Labels for my counter storage containers:

Below is a short video on the process I use to label my counters.  The label maker in the video is a Brother PT-2730.  You can use other label makers but I suggest that you get one that can be edited on your pc so you can insert nifty images.

 

 

Battledice- Some of the common questions I frequently receive in regards to the Battle Dice (please note that the answers are based on observations of my own experience as a user of the BattleSchool dice):

Q – Are BattleSchool Dice  truly precision Dice?

A – Yes and No.  While no dice including backgammon dice are infinitely precise, the Battledice are much more precise than the stock dice that are supplied with the core ASL modules for two reasons. 1. The Battledice blanks are produced at he same factory and to the same specs as backgammon dice.  2. The pips in non precision dice are drilled out without being filled in with equally dense material. Because of this, the ‘one’ surface will be heavier than the ‘six’ surface as the six surface has 6 times more material removed from it.   If true precision is your desire, please check out the backgammon dice that we carry as well.

Q – Why are they so expensive?

A – This is a matter of perspective.  Although it seems like $10 a die is an exorbitant amount to pay for a little square piece of plastic, in comparison to backgammon dice, they are very reasonably priced.  True backgammon dice run from $20 to $35 a pair.  The Battleschool dice, which are backgammon dice to begin with,  then custom made in small batches with great WW2 themes, are around the $20 mark for a pair.

Q – Are they necessary to play the game?

A – No.  While none of the dice are truly needed to play, they do heighten the enjoyment for myself and others. If I had to pick one set that was the most useful I would say the Dust Devils, hands down.

Q – Why do people collect them?

A – I can only speak for myself but I will say this this;   When someone asks me if I need Polish dice to play a Polish scenario, I say ‘no, but then again I don’t need a new action pack filled with 8 more scenarios to add to the 5,400 scenarios that I have yet to play either, but no one gives you grief about that, do they?’.  The dice make me happy, so I buy them.  It’s really that simple for me.

 

Where the Iron Crosses Grow team tournament less than a month away now.  We although players always have a choice on scenario selection, this year we will also have some themed rounds that are completely voluntary.  Also, Saturday night, we will be having a viewing of the Estonian movie ‘1944’.  I already had a chance to see this movie and imho, it was fantastic.  I am really looking forward to getting everyone’s opinion on it.

The wonderful people in our community of ASL’ers:

I would like to make a shout out to Craig Houliston.   I ran out of stock on Journal 12 and he has waited patiently for over a week for me to ship him his order.  I created a $10 coupon as an apology and this was his response:

No worries, Derek, really. I wasn’t upset. I was just wondering what was up. I figured you might have sold out or something. Thanks for being gracious with the coupon code, though it really isn’t necessary. In fact, would you please do this instead? How about we call it “good” with the shipping update and you pay the $10 forward down the road to someone else that needs a helping hand, or is maybe just a little short.

Your heart will let you know when the time is right.

Best,

Craig

A very sincere thank you –

I want to take a moment to thank the ASL community.  You see, about three years ago I began a project to create some OBA cards.  I invested some money that I didn’t really have into producing 500 sets of the cards. I didn’t know if they would be a flop or people would consider them  useful and collectible.  Well tonight I sold the last set.   For anyone that has ever produced anything for this wonderful hobby, you know that it is a labor of love.  Thanks to all of you.

Derek.

#55 – Into The Rubble II- OBA Cards almost gone forever

Into The Rubble II – Now shipping to pre-orders. The good folks at BFP have started shipping to pre-orders and I am supposed to receive my stock this week so I am sending out the pre-order invoices now.

ITR: Into the Rubble

Into The Rubble offers players the opportunity to do cardboard battle in cities and railroad yards. The scenarios range from 1938 to 1945 with a variety of forces including American, Chinese, German/SS, Hungarian, Japanese, Nationalist Spanish, Republican Spanish, Romanian and Russian.

Into The Rubble 2 builds on BFP’s initial offering, adding 12 new and exciting scenarios in addition to the 8 which came in the original pack, in addition to new boards, overlays and counters. Everything from the original ITR is here, all known errata has been incorporated, and some of the original scenarios have been adjusted for play balance.

Into the Rubble 2 includes the following:

  • 20 action-packed scenarios in full-color print
  • 140 Full color, die cut 1/2″ counters
  • 88 Full color, die cut 5/8″ counters
  • Two 8″x22″ geomorphic mapboards (BFP A and B) printed on heavy card stock, depicting city and railroad yard terrain. BFP B contains an errata update from the original ITR board
  • One 16″x22″ geomorphic double-wide mapboard (BFP DW-7) printed on heavy card stock, depicting dense city terrain
  • One 8″x12″ rubbled city overlay (BFP RC-1), 1 large factory overlay, 1 sheet of debris overlays, and 1 sheet of rubble/rubbled building overlays
  • Rules pages describing new terrain, including Railroad Factories, and new unit types.

The Rubbled City overlay (RC-1) fits on other official ASL (MMP) city boards: 1, 20, 21, 22, 45, 49, and 51.

Ownership of the following MMP ASL products are required to play all 20 of the included scenarios: Beyond Valor©, Yanks©, Doomed Battalions©, Armies of Oblivion©, Red Barricades©, For King and Country©, Rising Sun©.

 

 

OBA Cards – I have 5 sets left.  These cards will almost certainly never be reprinted.  If you want a set, this may be your last chance to buy them before they are gone forever.

 

Free t-shirts.  Don’t forget to claim your free t-shirts.  I am getting orders that hit the $150 mark and no free t-shirt added!?!

Spirit Of The Event:  This event is held for fun.  If you are the type of player that never looks up from the table to make eye contact with your opponent, doesn’t make small talk or tell stories, will only play scenarios that you have mastered, or get’s offended by jokes about Ken’s mom, then you might not have a good time being here and we probably won’t have a good time having you here.  Sorry to be so blunt but we take our lack of seriousness very seriously.

Format:  Team Tournament. Each team is made up of 1 Veteran, 1 intermediate, and 1 Novice player.  Each player plays round-robin games against the other players in their class gaining points for their team.

When: Saturday April 6th – 9th, 2017 (Carnage begins Thursday  night but official tournament begins Saturday morning).

Cost: Free (but bring money for for Pizza. Also bring singles for Ken’s mom).

Accomodations: Ray Woloszyn and I may both have room for travelers to stay with us at our homes (Ray lives in the neighborhood next to mine) unless you are really creepy.

Scenario list: None.  Play something that you would like to play not what I would like you to play.  All scenarios choices are upon mutual agreement of the players.

Prizes: Too many to mention.  Plus some participation awards so everyone feels like a  winner.

festung-budapestFestung Budapest – MMP has re-released this monster campaign in very limited quantities.  The game pits the Germans and Hungarians against the Russians and Hungarians.  MMP only sent me enough copies to cover my pre-orders so if you did not pre-order this from me, I do not have any to sell.  If you did pre-order this from me, I sent you an invoice today (if you can’t find the invoice, check your junk folder).  I will hold your copy in reserve until the 27th of January and then I will sell it to the people that are on the waiting list to buy one.  I am so sorry that I can’t hold it longer but I have to sell the stock before the CC bill arrives 🙂

Winter Offensive #8 – 2017

WO 8 2017

This product is not discounted to retailers which means that we lose money on every one that we sell so it will not hurt my feelings if you buy another item at the same time you purchase this 🙂
