So I received Konigsberg from LC the other day and noticed that it had really nice blue Hitler Youth and Party Leader counters. They would go really well with my Black Barricades CG I figured. The trouble is that the whole German OOB in that CG is black. I hatched a plan. The CG is on date 13 which is about half way through. I have decided to change the black SS OOB for a blue SS OOB.

I dug out my FB SS counters and BFP blue SS counters and have decided to punch them. The whole German OOB in the CG is about to have a facelift. The Hitler Youth will be provided by LC as mentioned. The Gestapo will be SS 468 counters. The Hitler Youth and Gestapo will use blue LC and BFP leaders. The rest of the OOB will be blue SS 838, 548, 447 and BFP 437 counters courtesy of FB and PiF. I have blue SS 838 AE counters from FB.

Naturally I have all the blue AFV and SW counters as well. Why am I doing this? Well I have always appreciated the aesthetic side of playing ASL with real counters and maps. It is really just to see how the whole CG will change in appearance and to enjoy the new blue SS counters. It will be fun.

Honza, under the new regime, I don't think we are allowed to talk about black SS counters anymore. Nice you are switching to blue.
tsk tsk lets not grumble.... ;)

I am gearing up my VASL activity because of the shut-down of other things due to Corona.

Two games scheduled, I was hanging around on the server and arranging to prepare some VASL files for future play.
