Since this was just posted yesterday I will allow a couple of weeks for feedback and questions.

Hello all, isnt it better to continue discussions about forum's policies in a dedicated thread? Advancing Fire Team may use this space for a limited time to inform people about its products, but if the most part of the messages are on forum's policies the situation becomes a bit confusing! :)

i agree with you there if the mods have problems it should be done privately, this illuminating the keyboard heroes , although the latter are fairly tame on this group.

Abbio Priolo map included in Biazza Ridge pack. This was the location where the I. Batallion of Panzer Regiment HG reinforced by infantry of the Aufklarung Abteilung, coming from Niscemi, attacked the US 16th Inf Regiment on 11th July 1943 trying to open a passage to US 1st Infantry Division's beaches near Gela .

Covering the gully depictions with another terrain type, instead of setting it next to the gullies, may make it hard in some instances to determine line of site down a gully.

You should see how it is printed. Here there is a sample at higher resolution. We think that grey and brown of the Gully is clearly discernable.

What are these Ys all around what seems to be gullies? Sorry, but to me they look rather ugly.

They are Reed Bed, cane thicket, we were inspired by HOB's graphics used in their work on Crete. If we tried to make a less stylized depiction for that , more beautiful and realistic than this, probably we should have (more) problems with LOS determinations. And also in these first works we didn't want to introduce too many innovations.

Current view of the same area of the map above taken from Google Earth ( 37° 5'8.51"N, 14°22'27.67"E). Hill 41 now has no trees, while at that time it was a large olive grove, and a modern sunken railroad has been built in the middle in the meantime. In some cases new roads have replaced the old ones.

Looking forward to this pack, but the pre-orders appear to have slowed to a trickle. Is there still a Go/No Go publish decision point in February?

They should be regularly promoting it, to keep it in people's minds and get more to commit, rather than one announcement and done.

You know that we have been limited in Gamesquad... so we are doing promotion mainly on FB...

we wrote in our website that preorders will be taken until 25th February, so obviously we will make our decisions at that date... we are satisfied with the preorder phase

I hope you are also doing promotion on Boardgamegeek and Consimworld as well.

You might also want to see if the Two Half Squads or some other ASL podcast would be willing to have you on to promote your upcoming product.

I should note that, even here, it is possible for someone to do marketing without it appearing like marketing. Just to give one example, what if one of your friends started a thread like "What upcoming products are you most interested in?" and in their own answer to that question took the time to "talk up" Biazza Ridge as one of the products they were really looking forward to. There are many "soft marketing" opportunities in a forum like this even if your "hard" or "overt" marketing opportunities may be limited.
