    The Tampa ASL Group will officially release Schwerpunkt Volume #22 and Rally Point 12 (The Schwerpunkt’s Greatest Hits Volume II) and Rally Point Volume #13 (The Yanks Are Coming) on 10/5/16 at the ASL Oktoberfest in Cleveland, Ohio, but they are available to order now.

    Currently all 22 issues of Schwerpunkt and 13 issues of Rally Point are available, although some of our older volumes are in low stock.

    An order form is included below.

    Schwerpunkt Volume #22 is Available Now!

    This issue’s 20-page booklet contains two articles: Brook White’s The Last Hurrah…Not! The Belgians and Dutch in ASL, as well as our trademark analyses and designer’s notes for Scenarios SP253 - SP264. Each of the 12 scenarios is printed on cardstock in our easy-to-read format. The scenarios are in keeping with the Schwerpunkt tradition of tournament-sized as well as medium-sized actions. There's something is this pack for players of all experience levels!

    SP253 De Zwarte Duivels - ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, 13 May 1940: Dutch Korpsmariners reinforced with armored cars counterattack to clear Gruppe Kerfin’s fallschirmjägers from the National Life Insurance building. This medium-sized scenario has a game length of 4.5 turns and is set on half-boards 20 and 23.

    SP254 Propitious Arrival BULSON, France, 14 May 1940: This is a rare example of a meeting engagement featuring a French combined arms force led by the 7ème Bataillon de Chars de Combat against the vanguard of the 1st Panzer Division. This 6 turn scenario has plenty of early war tin can action and is set on half boards 2, 11, 59 and 70.

    SP255 Anatoly’s Ambush IL’ KOVO, Russia 6 October 1941: Hero of the Soviet Union, Captain Anatoly Raftopulo conducts a large BT-7 tank ambush and defends a small village against a combined arms assault by the 4th Panzer Division. This 5.5 turn scenario has HIP tanks and a lot of tense action set on boards 67 and 75.

    SP256 De Veer’s Counterattack- TANKOEBAN, Java, The Netherlands East Indies, 6 March 1942: The Dutch 5th Infantry Battalion initially defends a small village and then counterattacks the Japanese Shoji Detachment. This medium-sized PTO scenario set on board 2b gives both sides a chance to attack. Game Length is 6 turns.

    SP257 Jerry by the Bushel - SAINT PIERRE-LA-VIEILLE, France, 2 August 1944: The British 7th Battalion, Green Howards conducts a combined arms assault with pre-registered 80mm OBA, carriers and Sherman tanks to seize a village held by the German 326th Infantry Division. This is a fast-moving, 4.5 turn, tournament-level scenario set on boards 73 and p.

    SP258 Operation BlackwaterSAINT PIERRE-LA-VIEILLE, France, 11 August 1944:
    A combined force of infantry from the 15th Battalion, Hampshire Regiment supported by Sherman VC(a)s attacks to clear German infantry and Schwere Panzer Abteilung 503’s last remaining Tiger I tanks from a village. This 6.5 turn scenario uses boards 70 and 71.

    SP259 Corridor to Extinction - WAIDHOFEN, Austria, 7 May 1945: A group of former SS Tiger tank crewmen has recently acquired a Jagdtiger and has joined up with a group of SS infantry and PzIVJs to delay the Russian 30th Guards Corps, while the remnants of the 1st SS Panzer Division attempt to escape to the Americans during the last hours of the war. This is a fast-playing, 4.5 turn scenario, well-suited for tournament play.

    SP260 Frosty the Snowman - SUMA, Finland, 19 December 1939: Russian infantry from the 138th Infantry Division with supporting T-26 M33 tanks attacks to clear the Finnish 10th Division from a group of building and a hill. Hugh Downing designed this 5.5 turn action that is our first scenario to feature Hakkaa Päälle components.

    SP261 Gunning for Gas - ORDZHONIKIDZE, Russia, 6 November 1942: The 7th Guards Rifle Brigade is defending the board 8a village with infantry and Lend Lease Lee and Valentine tanks against an attack by the 13th Panzer Division that is running out of fuel. Mike Augustine designed this 4.5 turn scenario.

    SP262 Urdom Done - URDOM, Russia, 30 November 1942: Grenadiers from the 206th Infantry Division supported by a Marder II desperately try to hold onto a village, until Grossdeuschland ski-troops reinforce them. Russian Infantry and 6 KV tanks make this Mike Augustine design an exciting 5.5 turn battle in the snow drifts.

    SP263 Snova Snare - DRUZHAVETSKI, Russia, 6 July 1943: The 75th Guards Rifle Division is surrounded by panzers and infantry from Kampfgruppes Schmahl and Mummert and is trying to hold onto battle positions near the board 72 stream. Pete Shelling returns to Schwerpunkt with a brilliant 5.5-turn tournament level gem.

    SP264 Meet the Old Boss - GYAPJUT, Hungary, 29 September 1944: Romanian infantry from the 1st Tudor Vladimirrescu Division (led by commissars) is defending on board 9a against panzergrenadiers and halftracks from the 23rd Panzer Division. Pete Shelling rounds out this year’s pack with a fine 5.5 turn tournament action.

    Great news Evan, but as usual, not easy for your supporters overseas to get your publication without Paypal or some other means to buy them.....

    Nice to see you still in print and as Xavier said it is a ball ache getting your stuff direct since you will not accept PayPal like all the other ASL TPP companies, shame as it makes it far easier for everybody outside the US of A to buy from them.

    i was just wondering if there is errata for the Snova Snare scenario. The vc seem to be a bit off... is the German player supposed to control all buildings on the board (which it kinda says and i guess what makes it so hard to win as the German ( 15/5 in ROAR)) or in his setup area?

    Unfortunately, no errata that I am aware of, and, yes, the VC would explain the ROAR record.

    I don't think Schwerpunkt admits to errata......

    No errata for this one to my knowledge. And yes, it is tough on the Germans.
    I have played it as the Russians and despite the flank where I put my Schwerpunkt performed very badly, the other flank enabled me to bring it home. AFAIK all playings at Grenadier of this scenario ended with the Russians victorious, too.

    Barring a misread of VC or setup restrictions is is not only difficult for the Germans to win this scenario against a competent opponent, it is nigh on to impossible. As the board narrows to only a two hex approach to one flank, it's very easy for the Russians to just pack that approach and as you've noted even use brokies to delay/deny access to the last buildings there. What surprises me is that there are 5 German wins.:eek:

    I have played it twice and won as both sides.

    My German win versus Rich Spilky was a one off as I ran my reinforcements at the Russians that setup in 8/9/10 on the Russian left, including a PZIVF seemingly unable to bog as it motored on the German far right. Net result was I wiped them all out while losing one or two 467s. That left me enough to easily take the Russian left, where he had most of his assets.

    I also saw another German win featuring a German AFV, touched by an angel, running through a 4AT mine in the narrow road on the Russian left. It actually created a trail break, used by the other AFVs and the following, now enthused Wehrmacht lads.

    But while a fun scenario, the Germans need some non-trivial balance IMHO.
