I'm noticing more and more on the desperation morale site that a lot of third party publishers design scenarios for one or both of the maps from High Ground. This is really annoying as they're so hard to get. Are there any plans by HOB to reprint these maps alone or combined with their original scenarios... perhaps in the SK style or unmounted?
Anyone... ?


Cheers,
Sam

I was just thinking the same thing the other day. I was checking the different maps in VASL and thought about using them in some of my own new designs. Would be nice to have the actual hard-copy maps, even if in SK format.

The reprint of these maps AIN'T gonna happen.

Many people, myself included, have asked about this before. HOBs answer is, "No".

Kevin,

I dont believe your comment is fully accurate. High Ground may not be straight up reprinted, but there is a plan to make the maps available either prior to or at the same time as Kohima is released.

Chas,

Thanks for the insight. But a direct question to Steve D before you got involved with HOB was a "No".

But it will be a good thing if/when this HASL appears. Not too much knowledge pertaining to the Commonwealth vs Japanese, but truly willing to learn more about this topic.

It's a pity. I have the HG maps (2 sets) but would buy them in ASLSK style if they came out again. The idea (2 map terrain feature) is good. HG and OtO made HoB the best of TPP ASL at that time, at least in my opinion.

Maybe a larger more cluttered (woods, brush and buildings) pair of half hill maps that mate with the original pair or a saddle back hill (with road running over or cut into the saddle) or really high peak (mountain) that can be placed between the original 2. Just some ideas.

I can understand the reluctance to just simply reissue the same 2 boards, but with the SK style maps being cheaper to do, then a set of 4 to 6 might be a greater incentive for buyers. When HOB III and IV (BtBH 2) was reissued by BFP as BFP C and D they added 2 new boards to the mix.

In the end it comes down to economics, time and designers/developers preferences. I have no idea as to whether the original HG covered their costs (I suspect it did as they produced BtBH (1)). They might prefer to concentrate their efforts on HASL and the like.

Any news or intentions as to the next SF packs as I enjoyed the SF1?

Just to throw some more info out there....

This is a quote from the Designers Notes form HoB's new Scenario Pack "The Long March"

"Long March 17 is excluded .... it uses High Ground boards that are not generally available, (stay tuned for that!)."

Looks like something might be in the works.
