The project has been a blast to work on. There are some really meaty pieces to play as well as some lighter fare. I'm working on one now for Chas. 50 scenarios could be included easy, but we'd never be done...Sounds like Chas has settled on a close to final number

Saw the "ad" in the FTC 12, and sounds like funn. Though I am guessing someone is already complaining about more counters

The Finn project & Peleliu are my absolute must buy.

I am almost certain to purchase Ponyri & the French/ Indochina modules when they are released but everything else is a big wait and see.

There are some really nice-looking items in the queue, but I am at almost a saturation level.

Not me. I love the counter artwork from BFP and prefer their counters to others.
Agreed! If I could have a complete set of ASL counters from any one publisher, it would be from BFP. Others are good, but BFP's are the best, IMO. The newer editions of LFT counters (e.g. LFT 14 Italians) would run a very close second.

The variety of actions the Finns fought against both the Russians and the Germans will make this pack an absolute add to any collection.

Update. Still at 24 scenarios Final or near Final. 10 scenarios are in great shape and possibly 2 games away from going final/near final.
I have cut some stuff but somehow still standing at 42 scenarios, although some may not make the final cut.
Getting the final 8-10 scenarios done is always the most difficult part.

This is the Ground Attack version with only an external bomb load, which was massive, and two 20mm cannons that could attack ground targets. First use against the Finns was 9 June 1944, and hammered front line positions along with IL-2s.

Wasn't this used fairly extensively against shipping? IIRC I thought I had read somewhere/sometime these were used in the Baltic area especially late in the war when the Germans were trapped in the Courland pocket and around Konigsberg.

The bomber version with an external and internal payload, I would say that is likely.
