    You misunderstood him. He is not saying designers in the module box...he is saying designers at large.

    While everyone is waiting - you might head over to The Two Halfsquads podcast and listen to what Ken has to say about the module - one of the most interesting interviews T2HS has done in my opinion.

    To add to Andy's comments, I've submitted an article on the Canadians in Korea to MMP for a future Journal. Which isn't to say it's been accepted, but I think those of us who were involved in the design (even those like me whose role was extremely minor and peripheral) will do their best to help this unique ASL product succeed.

    Whomever said that betrays no great understanding of the Korean War. From 1951 to the end of hostilities, it was a war of small unit actions. It was rare to see a whole battalion in action on any given day, much less a brigade. The UN lines were packed with individual brigades/regiments, all of whom had their own quirks. My own interest is the Canadians, who also numbered somewhere around 4,000 men. You had US Army Rangers, Marines, Royal Marines, British line troops, various UN contingents - all of whom had their own training, experience and unique order of battle. And anyone who reads the various histories, whether official histories or unit histories, will see that there were all kinds of unit and company level actions by these groups worth portraying in scenarios.

    The fact that Korean Marines were a small force only speaks to the diversity we will see with Korean War scenarios - which is a plus, not a minus. If you were to exclude any contingent below division sized, it would be a boring product indeed.

    I mean, there are counters of AFV types whose total actual wartime production was less than the number of pieces allotted to them in the counter-mix. But it's a mistake to include forces that made up entire regiments? Not seeing the logic there.

    Mine arrived today! Excitement. No chapter W in the box. Disappointment. E-mail sent to MMP. Waiting again.

    In this case, I prefer to wait and see for myself: waiting increases the pleasure.

    MMP guys-

    Are you still sending out pre orders?

    On Facebook they said they'd still be shipping orders for at least the next couple of weeks.

    Mine went to "Processing" and then to "Packing" within 6 hours. Sounds like it's moving along now.
