    Breaking Heartstrings

    Are there plans to turn this into a tactical mission pack? We’ve enjoyed the scope of LCP HASLs and I wondered if there are plans to do any for the PTO.

    Manila question

    Hi, I’m very interested in the upcoming Sword & Fire HASL and wanted to ask how many scenarios/ cgs can be played on one map. Although I admire the scope and scale of this project, unfortunately my gaming space is too limited to support all six maps at the same time, or even three. If possible...

    Q22 French Spirit

    Doug recently bought Quick Six IV so we decided to head over to the western front circa May 1940. It was a welcome respite from the cold, icy hills of North Korea. We really like these Quick Six packs- they allow us to still get in a game even if life gets hectic. Every scenario is played on...

    FT300 Fox In The Cold

    As a holiday gift to myself, I bought LFT's Blood and Sand scenario pack. Although we have Blood Reef Tarawa, it really hasn't gotten much mileage and I'm hoping we can get into more USMC island hopping action in 2022, its one of my resolutions. Besides, according to my Kindle I'm 65% through...

    WO38 Three Bars of Chocolate

    After the pasting I took in Fontenoy, Doug and I switched up and I was the defender for the 84th 'Railsplitters' Infantry Division's assault on Lindern during Operation Clipper. Launched in late November 1944, this shaping operation intended to shorten the boundary between the British and...

    DB 144- Fontenay by Night

    After licking my wounds and going through some therapy, we returned to Fontenay le Pisnel. Doug offered to let me take the SS child soldiers, but I declined- I had unfinished business with the defenders of Fontenay. This time, the map length was slightly shortened: Brit set up was along the...

    DB 113- Fontenay By Day

    After an ASL hiatus imposed by the pandemic and work demands, we decided to inaugurate our return with a Normandy scenario and settled on Fontenay by Day from Dispatches from the Bunker # 38. It covers the British 49th division's efforts during Operation Martlet, which covered the right flank of...

    DB078- Demolition Men

    For Christmas my wife got me an iWatch and throughout this scenario it would record my spiking bloodpressure and repeatedly remind me to breathe in a futile attempt to restore my mental tranquility. May 25, 1944, tasked with a Fuehrerbefehl direct from Berlin, a battalion of paratroopers...

    ABtF cellars

    Hi everyone, I've been looking at DB058 Vossenack Church and said church has a ABtF type cellar. Unfortunately this is the one HASL module I don't own, can anyone shed light on the rules for cellars or is this similar to a cellar from RB or the pillbox rules from SC? Looks like this could be a...

    DBP6- Route 41

    Non, je ne regrette rien For this weekend’s game I talked Doug into playing a scenario from Critical Hit’s Dien Bien Phu pack. I chose Route 41 since, as a straight up infantry fight, it appeared to be the best ASL conversion and wasn’t played on the DBP map, which calls for some specific...

    AP86 Milling About

    Work has slowed down my AAR posting but fortunately not my opportunities to play ASL. Not that I play ASL at work or anything…I just post AARs at work. For last week’s scenario we decided on something from Action Pack 6 and settled on Milling About, a nice early war Burma scenario where a...

    FT270 Revenges at Saint Julien

    Did you catch the clever play on words? “Revenges” at St. Julien? Set in August 1944 this six turn scenario from the newest From the Cellar Pack depicts a German anti-partisan operation against FFI forces in south-central France. Historically, the Germans, or more accurately Cossacks fighting...

    FT 273 Former Foes

    Saigon. Shit, I’m still only in Saigon. For this past weekend’s scenario Doug and I decided to play Former Foes, from Franc Tireur’s Cellar Pack #9. In this really interesting late war PTO scenario, a British expeditionary force led by Lord Mountbatten attempts to keep order in the...

    HS14- The Christmas Gifu

    It’s July, it’s hot, and it’s humid. It’s so hot and humid in the south that if you go to the mailbox you come back looking like you fell in a swimming pool. The other night I came back from walking my dogs and my wife asked if it’d rained. That’s how bad I looked. Aside from being the peak of...

    FrF59- Capital Punishment

    Our second foray into the Friendly Fire series featured another heater. In this late war scenario, the Soviets have established a bridgehead over the Oder River at the town of Neu Glietzen, roughly sixty kilometers (that’s 37.2823 miles for my fellow Americans) northeast of Big Bad Berlin...

    FrF16 Last Orders

    Wir sind auf Sondereinsatz. Mit welches Vollmacht? Vollmacht von oben. Ganz oben. It’s April 1945 and schweres Panzerjager Kompanie 614 finds itself near Zossen, Germany. Their orders are unclear- should they fight their way through to the OKW headquarters located in the town? Or would...

    LFT 245- Ciao Cina

    So much carnage. In our final game of the holiday weekend, Doug and I broke out this scenario from the latest issue of Le Franc Trieur. It’s a particularly interesting one that examines the 1943 Japanese attempt to annex Italian holdings in China after the armistice. A mixed group of plucky...

    RPT 141 Volunteers became scarce

    My introduction to The Forgotten War had me like.. We were fortunate to play a lot of ASL over the long weekend and even managed to make an initial foray into the Korean War with this scenario, which pits defending ROKs against NK tanks and infantry in June 1950. After dicing, I wound up as the...

    J150 The Sangshak Redemption

    To kick off Memorial Day weekend, we decided to head to the PTO for a mash up between the Japanese and some Gurkhas defending Sangshak, Burma in March 1944 during the Kohima-Imphal campaign. When the dice settled Doug wound up taking the defenders. He started out with a handful of clerks n’...
