I think the current release began development using some of the KE research as a base.
I just received Forgotten War yesterday.
I can honestly say that I have not been this excited or impressed with a new ASL product since the day I purchased Code of Bushido.
After a few hours spent reading the rules and the absolutely fascinating chapter H, I can hardly wait to play my first FTF game! I probably learned more about this war from reading the excellent footnotes than I have from any other single source...which of course, is more indicative of my lack of knowledge on the subject than anything.
Chapter H also leaves no doubt as to the possibility of a large variety of Korean war scenarios appearing in the years to come.
On a side note, I was most excited about the Centurion tank finally making its debut in ASL, however after examining the rules, I am eagerly awaiting my chance to command a large Chinese force or have a few Skyraiders available for air support.
My hat's off to all the designers and playtesters. Thanks to your efforts, I may not be back to the Eastern Front for quite some time.
Terrain. My focus is on Korean terrain and if new Korean looking boards can be produced later on for it.
To that end, I'm furiously studying photos, movies, and sketching out some geoboard ideas. The Korean terrain is very unique - not like Europe, Russia, or PTO (though it's closer to PTO than the other types).
I had the same thought about a focused scenario pack while reading Bill Sloan's "The Darkest Summer". It's also what got me thinking about the Obong-Ni HASL.What 5th Marines managed around Pusan (as compared with the performance of Army units), certainly is one of the Corp's finest moments (not unlike the contrast between the USMC at Chosin with the 8th Army at Ch'ongch'on River). The Marine in me would love to see a "Fire Brigade" pack/HASL depicting this exemplary chapter in the Corp's history...
Just finishing this one up. Next in the queue is Hammes' "Forgotten Warriors: The 1st Provisional Marine Brigade, the Corps Ethos, and the Korean War." I also ordered volume 1 of "U.S. Marine Operations in Korea 1950-53," which is devoted to Pusan actions (I've previously read volumes 2 and 3).I had the same thought about a focused scenario pack while reading Bill Sloan's "The Darkest Summer".
I read this a few years ago. Good book, I would recommend it.I had the same thought about a focused scenario pack while reading Bill Sloan's "The Darkest Summer". It's also what got me thinking about the Obong-Ni HASL.
I’m saying they’d be too high maintenance anyway....Thank you. It turns out that designing an ASL module is not the road to wealth and the attention of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models like I thought it would be, but the nice words of fellow ASL players is a good reward.
