    A2.4 and B.1 terrain movement costs

    My page K3 (c 2005 by MMP) says, in the right column, paragraph with a square: How many MF did that last MPh use? "Five, Drill Sergeant." Correct. I brought you down here because I want to show you hex 19. It is unusual because it contains both woods and a building. The cost to enter hexes...

    What Makes A Good AAR?

    I'm with Jim...too much detail is really unnecessary. The general plan and how it went (with a few key highlights) is sufficient for me. Also, please hit return a few times. When I see an AAR that is a massive block of text, I don't bother trying to read it. Good luck! indy

    Fire Lane. Has there been a change?

    Agreed. I think that a lot of players forget that if ASL is modelling anything, it is the effect, not the cause. indy

    Intensive Fire of MA during Defensive Final Fire?

    Yes, it does make sense to me now...well, I might be lying (and I'm just used to it), but I'm fine with it as the rule is quite clear. I was a-mazed at what I discovered when I started reading the rules carefully! indy

    Intensive Fire of MA during Defensive Final Fire?

    I find this rule a bit puzzling as it makes final fire for the defender and prep fire for the attacker different...I had it in my head they were analogous. the good thing is that the rule is crystal clear. indy

    Area target type/area fire & halfling of ordnance hits

    Exactly. It is a pity the word Area appears in both. Someone (whose name I cannot remember) once suggested that maybe "Hex Fire" and "Area Target Type" would have been enough to differentiate the two. Alas, they were over forty years late. indy

    #39: Eight Million Bayonets

    Another very entertaining episode...I thought the ideas for MMP were very interesting. I, too, would pay for personalised leaders. BTW, Gerry is doing all of the work for Alberta Assault this year. During the AAR, I caught myself hovering my mouse over top of a stack to see what was in...

    weather oddities

    Judging by scenarios, I think the strangest weather anomaly is that between 1939 and 1945 in Europe, something like 95% of the time the weather was moderate with no wind... indy

    Can a unit dismantle a weapon in prep fire and move?

    Can a unit dismantle a weapon in prep fire and move?

    An interesting thread to be sure. Perhaps I look at ASL in a bit too binary a way, so I'll ask: What is an example of a sleaze that "borders on cheating?" I tend to think an action is cheating or it's not. Obviously I'm not seeing something here... BTW, I don't use the term sleaze. As much...

    Average Dice

    I would suggest the following method. It works well face-to-face. The probability of rolling a 2 or 12 is the same, as are (3,11), (4,10), (5,9), and (6,8). The goal is to have the same number of rolls for each element of the pairs listed above (so the same number of 4 and 10, for example)...
