    You can see the funky white circle on the capture M20 in the above picture. Identical to the issue I had on my countersheet.
    My mailer was also ripped and re-taped by the post office, however, the shrinkwrap protected all and no damage was passed through to the contents.

    Who are the designers of the CGs? Sorry if this has been asked before.

    Isn't 5FP a bit high for non-combat troops?

    Might be. I am not the designer but merely explaning the historical differences between the tasks of Assault Engineers and Construction Engineers in the German Army of WW2.

    I've learned from bitter experience that whenever I order an ASL product of any kind which does not include a box, to include a message on the order form to the vendor/shipper requesting that the package be clearly marked 'Do Not Bend'. I haven't had any problems with damage since then.
    Then again, I have a box at the local post office so your experience could be different if your items are being mailed to your residence.

    That would be Chas as the designer and myself as the developer. Chas came up with the basic approach and elements and I worked up all the rules and coordinated all of the playtests. The CG rules are based off of RB primarily with elements from KGP, PB and FB included where appropriate.

    My countersheet is perfect, so probably the print run went bad at some point.

    I played OS14 "Drive 'em Out" on Sunday with Dave Coleman. We enjoyed the scenario and map...my attacking Americans were pushing close to the CVP cap, but took the last needed building on turn 5. Dave counter-attacked in the last half turn and was able to take back the church for the win. Very enjoyable scenario.

    We are starting OS17 "The Worst Place of Any" this coming Sunday. The dice gave me the attacking Americans...looks like it should be fun.

    Another great product so far...kudos to BFP.

    Semper Fi!

    Received today - package was ripped but no damage, fortunately. Also, no minor counter flaws.

    Looks great - fantastic to see BFP venture into CG design.

    The maps & counters look great! I'm surprised this product sold so cheaply. What a great buy, thank you!

    I agree. Like the product except for the map quality. My maps are already beginning to fray/tear. Would love thicker, non glossy card stock in the future like the typical MMP HASL (e.g. Budapest).

    You guys couldn’t do a “prototype” run on the maps? Not to be a complainer, but the maps just ain’t happening for me (artwork is fine, map quality is not).

    Things That Will NOT Happen! --

    No Foreign "Shithole" substances will touch my mapboards. They will be forever pure and unsullied.
    --AND--
    I have never, and will never, punch, nor gouge, kick, fold, spindle, or mutilate a single BFP counter.

    That is what VASL is for.
