Finally sorted the remaining counters from Red Factories, plus overlays. Went through second stage sort for the Russian and German counters in my Raaco boxes.

Completed clipping and sorting the Croix de Guerre counters plus the Inor counters ( die cutting was offset on sheet 2) I’ll need to get a replacement from Xavier.

Spent a good few hours trying to get the VASL Template program working, succeeded in the end.

Browsed through the newly arrived Biazza Ridge package.

realised I really need a root and branch sort through of all my ASL TPPs. Filing system is becoming chaotic. Also need to offload any superfluous CH counters, there are lots….

sent out the VASL templated scenario to the Friday VASL gang for play this Friday.

Checked the price of buying CdGv2/Dinant.....AUD$345 including shipping...
That's because the shipping weight exceeds 2kg. Postage costs really jump once the scale hits that mark. Shipping options also lessen. Have you looked into one of the forward shippers based in Oregon or Washington state? I know a guy who uses one to ship his ASL purchases Down Under.

plus the Inor counters ( die cutting was offset on sheet 2)
The die cutting was offset on my sheet 2 as well. But I can live with it. It only affected a few counters. I can clean them up with a sharp blade.

That's true, the existing MMP counters can be used for the mis-shaped squads. Fortunately the Legion counters are fine, with their raised broken morale. Those do not exist in the current system.

I have heard of them but have not used any so far. I picked up a few things last ASLOK, but that option won't be happening again for a while yet.

Go figure. The guy I was talking about (in Newcastle) just ordered a couple things yesterday--your Monday. If you know him, maybe you can figure out a way to share the costs from Oregon, assuming your order arrived in Portland before his shipped for Aussie. (His order ships to OR later today.)

Today I started to wonder about PBEM opponent I have not heard of in a while. Discovered I had prepared a logfile myself couple of weeks back - and never sent it across.

Now I am trying to figure out how stupid can you feel about yourself.

Today I started setting up the Marines of BLTs 1, 2 and 3 for the initial scenario of BRT CG III.
I've had BRT since it came out and have played a few scenarios over the years, but now we're going all-in for the big one.

VASL makes it all easier.
Please keep us updated! We've gotta know how this goes!

I will be keeping notes but can't guarantee a high level of rules compliance - we'll be doing our best but are bound to mess things up first time around.
Have you read the Tarawa Gamer’s Guide?
