Poilus was not an insult.I had forgot about the French, but I didn't think that "Poilus" was a insult. If so please enlighten me.
Thank, I guess my QA history is showing in that I never take anything for granted. I still wish MMP would have taken this as an opportunity to come out with an actual ocean assault board. There are already quite a few mountain boards.When I got a look some years back, the scenarios seemed like a very good mix to me. Given that is one of the things that get looked at when compiling scenarios for a module and this is not MMP's first rodeo, you should get a good mix. If this was a dedicated HASL to just one battle, then of course the focus would be a lot tighter. This module is covering 3 years of war. I think you are safe.
And the majority of casualties were caused by artillery but how much fun would it be if the majority of the scenarios were just artillery duels? Besides there was fighting all up and down the Korean peninsula so there are some non mountainous areas. There should be something for everyone.Doesn't that characterize a lot of the fighting in Korea?
The same was the case in WW1 and WW2. But such things as Bombardment rarely feature in ASL - be it WW2 scenarios and very likely the same will be true for KWASL.And the majority of casualties were caused by artillery but how much fun would it be if the majority of the scenarios were just artillery duels?
Of course, I was just using that as an analogy to counterpoint the idea that it should not be all hill fighting. I do have to admit though some of the most fun I had in large DYO scenario in Squad Leader was when a friend and I purchased a large number of 300mm Katyusha multiple rocket launchers and proceeded to rubble the board. Then there was the time when we parachuted radio armed troops behind the Germans and unleashed the barrage on them. Alas they, somewhat understandably, made that one illegal.The same was the case in WW1 and WW2.
