I'd love to see an historic SK campaign game that is modeled on RB or VoG.

RB is sometimes considered the pinnacle of the ASL experience (now enhanced with the Red Factories and VoG). But that experience is off-limits to SK players. This is not to say SK can ever match the richness due to its lower complexity but it might still be a classic in its own right. And it might also never happen because it would require a large counter mix which would make a self-contained SK kit costly. But one can dream :)

Gentlemen

ASLSK HASL’s are unique products. To keep them at the ASLSK level, many items must be left out. This can be a real issue when doing historical maps, etc. (Even ELST added a “special” steeple rule) This is NOT to say it can’t be done, but any major city/urban based ASLSK HASL might have to take major liberties with the map and rules. If lots of new terrain types and levels are added it ceases to be ASLSK HASL and is really an ASL HASL. Nothing wrong with that mind you :)

HASLs are good for both ASL & ASLSK, but certain “styles” of HASLs may be better suited for ASL or ASLSK depending on the situation being modeled.


Thanks!!

Having played Red Barricades, there are many many better campaigns. It is by no means the pinnacle of ASL experience.

Operation Veritable, Kampfgruppe Scherer, Kampfgruppe Peiper, Onslaught to Orsha are all better.

Not that any of them would be easy to translate into SK either....

Of those I think KGP might be the easiest to translate.
You'd need open topped vehicles and passengers, special rules for the sanatorium. Mines and foxholes need added too.
Dump barber wire fences and slopes.
