#72- ASL Korean War now shipping to retailers – Armies of Oblivion pre-order – Updated Wacht Am Rhein from LCP

Forgotten War Korea

Luanne from MMP informed me that Korea will start shipping to retailers (that’s me) this coming week of the 5th of February. That means all of you extremely patient ASL’ers should hopefully be receiving them by the end of the week/beginning of next week.


Armies of Oblivion pre-order

ARMIES OF OBLIVION adds the Axis Minors order of battle to the ADVANCED SQUAD LEADER game system. (Note that for this reprint, a preorder number has been assigned, but we expect to print the module as soon as all components are ready, regardless of whether or not that number has been reached.)

Counters note: We are not including in this reprint the German, Russian, British, and Italian counters that we printed in the original ARMIES OF OBLIVION. We printed the corrected counters for prior modules in BEYOND VALOR 3rd Edition and in FOR KING AND COUNTRY, or will include them in the reprint of HOLLOW LEGIONS. The counters for the German Sturmtiger and SdKfz 10/5 came with prior historical modules, and we printed them in HAKKAA PÄÄLLE!, along with all the new Russian (mostly lend-lease) counters. Instead, we are using that space to print new First Fire counters for optional use that indicate which specific weapon(s) have fired, e.g., First Fire-Inherent, First Fire-MG, First Fire-MA, etc. We hope players will find these useful.

• one box and lid

Winter Offensive 2018 #9


Did someone say Deluxe?  This year’s W.O. is all Deluxe, featuring 5 new scenarios and 4 new map boards designed in the exact style of the original modules Streets of Fire and Hedgerow Hell.  Pricing disclosure: This pack is sold with all profits going to charity so the pricing structure is exactly at my cost including shipping, Paypal fees and packaging (MMP does not offer a wholesale discount to retailers on the W.O. packs) .


Friends in the ASL community

Lest we forget that the best part of this great hobby is the wonderful friends we make who share our passions with us.  I am so sad to say that two among us have left this world in January and will be sorely missed.  Goodbye to Seth Owen and Bartow Riggs.  Our community is that much less without you.  Give our regards to all the war heroes that you meet in the next life.
