You want tin can action? Here it is! Uses boards 46 and 11 and requires use of Axis Minor and Italian counters.

FE2 Dans La Bataille, Pour La Patrie: May 1940, the French have their one opportunity to crush the German assault. The successful attack through the Ardennes is moving to the sea, cutting the French in half. However, this gives the French a singular opportunity for counterattack. Can DeGaulle marshal his forces for an effective attack? Requires board 12 and 4 and the French and German counters.


FE3 The Border Forts: November 1940 was a very bad month for Mussolini.

FE 7 Quick and Dirty: It is the Spring of 1942 and the Japanese have released their own form of Blitzkrieg covering much of the globe with their power. March finds them invading Java and in this opening skirmish a Japanese reconnaissance patrol races a Dutch force to capture a bridge. Uses Board 47 and Japanese and Allied Minor counters.

FE 8 Soebang Serenade: The only major armor clash of the Dutch East Indies Campaign occurred at Soebang on March 2, 1942. The counterattacking Dutch run into Japanese forces consolidating their control near the Soebang airfield and a melee ensues. Uses boards 24, 37 and 38 and uses Japanese and Allied Minor counters.

FE 10: An Abandoned Army: The surrender of Allied forces on Java did not end the fighting in the Dutch East Indies. A desperate force of Dutch and native troops struggles to hang together on the island of Sumatra. The Japanese are poised to crush them along with the help of the locals. An Urban Guerrilla for the PTO with partisan units popping out of nowhere to attack the Dutch. Uses board 32 and Japanese and Allied Minor units along with partisan counters.

FE 12: Once More into the Breach: Late in the war the Germans were desperate. Attacked from all sides they threw what they could at the tidal wave of Russians attacking from everywhere. This action covers a rescue operation as the SS try to reach a surround group of SS before they can be annihilated

 

BATTLIN' BASTARDS OF BATAAN

 BATTLIN' BASTARDS OF BATAAN covers the early war campaign in the Philippines and is compatible with the Advanced Squad Leader system.

A summary of the scenarios follows:

FE 25 Trouble at Agoo, December 22, 1941: A precursor action to the Bataan campaign pits 5 American light tanks against a Japanese AT Gun and reinforcing armor. Using board 38, this is a faced paced tourney sized action packed scenario.

FE 26 Precious Minutes, January 2, 1942: As the American and Filipino forces fall back into Bataan they desperately need time to establish their defensive line. This scenario on boards 35 and 38 pits a group of American infantry against an equivalent group of Japanese infantry. The Japanese must fight through the Americans and capture some huts avoiding some hidden American ART Guns in the process.

FE 27 The Bravest Thing I Ever Saw, January 6, 1942: Two opposing forces setup on opposing hills and blast away at each other as they try to capture the others hill. Each side gets the opportunity to attack and defend in this nail biter. The Americans get a bunch of infantry some fortifications and a couple of ART guns against a small swarm of Japanese infantry supported by ART Guns. This scenario uses boards 18 and 36.

FE 28 Fidgety Bridget, January 23, 1942: Here is a unique situation not normally seen in ASL, a meeting engagement at night. Tow opposing infantry forces must climb the board 39 hill and capture as much ground as possible. Both sides attack in this tactical puzzle.

FE 29 Reluctant Warriors: January 24, 1942: This is a really quick one. 8 American squads supported by an American Bren Gun Carrier (yes an American Carrier!) must seek out and capture a Japanese AT Gun and MG on board 36. Find out why the Americans had carriers and enjoy a scenario featuring this rare vehicle.

FE 30 Trail #2: January 27, 1942: This is a meaty scenario on boards 43 and 44 using a few overlays including rice paddies. Dont worry the Rice Paddies arent too onerous in this scenario. 20 Japanese squads must push through an American line and off the board. The Americans get some armor support in the form of some HT mounted artillery.

FE 31 Plenty of Time to Rest When You're Dead, February 2, 1942: This is a medium sized scenario on board 36. The Americans with a moderate amount of infantry supported by 3 Light Tanks must push up the road and capture a bridge against some dug-in Japanese infantry supported by an AT Gun.

FE 32 Get to the Point, February 3, 1943: This is another meaty scenario pitting 22 American squads supported by Light Tanks against a bunch of dug in Japanese squads with a few surprises of their own. The Americans in this one are using dynamite bundles, which adds a nice bit of flavor to the scenario. This scenario uses boards 34 and 37.

FE 33 Battlin' Bastards of Bataan, April 3, 1942: The Philippine campaign is drawing to a close but the Americans still have a lot of fight in them. This scenario, set on board 47 sees the Japanese with combined arms of infantry, artillery and armor pushing down the board against dug-in Americans supported by AT Guns and fortifications. This is another meaty scenario.

FE 34 Go Down Fighting, April 5, 1944: The campaign is nearing the end. The Battlin' Bastards of Bataan are giving it their all. This scenario, set on board 38, pits a ragged bunch of Americans supported by some ancient INF guns trying vainly to stop the Japanese onslaught. The Japanese get 4 tanks to support their infantry but in this nail biter the Japanese will need all the good luck they can generate.

The Philippine Campaign is an area of World War 2 that is ripe with actions ready to be represented in ASL. The Campaign uses a great deal of armor and ordnance not seen elsewhere during WW2. Furthermore, the campaign had a number of unique situations that lend themselves to a rules and actions not commonly encountered in ASL. This scenario pack demonstrates the fertile nature of this campaign. As an example here is a few features of these scenarios:

3 different types of American Armor including a new vehicle type 3 different types of American ordnance including a new gun type 4 different types of Japanese armor Rice paddies Unique SSR's including dynamite bundles and aerial observer directed OBA Daisy chains Night meeting engagement.

This is all pulled off without the normal scary complexity of a PTO scenario pack. There are no sea borne assaults, no caves, and the only night scenario is both unique and fairly easy as far as night scenarios go. This pack is a great intro to PTO product.

 

LENINGRAD PACK

This scenario pack contains 16 well-tested, balanced, fun and different scenarios. A summary of the scenarios follows:

FE 62 Uncle Joe's Fury, July 1941: An old fashioned combined arms assault on boards 48 and 44 with a good sized Russian infantry and tank force attempting to capture buildings and kill Germans who are equipped with infantry, tanks and guns.

FE 63 Out Land, August 1941: The Finns and the Russians go at it in this scenario. Finnish infantry assaults the board 10 and 42 villages attempting to capture buildings against infantry, guns and tanks.

FE 64 The Iron Ring is Closed, August 1941: This is a very meaty scenario. 44 German squads, OBA, halftracks and assault guns attack on boards 40, 49, 42, 24, 22 and 23. The Russians defend with 42 squads and several guns. The victory conditions are interesting with each side attempting to control the riverbank.

FE 65 Straight to the Front, September 1941: This scenario offers some good replay value. The Germans attack across boards 19 and 11 attempting to capture some buildings. The Germans get SS infantry and some AFV. The Russians start with some infantry and receive random tank support. A medium sized scenario should be popular.

FE 66 Tedium, October 1941: This is a classic slogging match across boards 19 and 44. Dug-In Russian troops try to stop a combined arms German force. The Germans have infantry, tanks and halftracks against the Russians with infantry, fortifications and Guns.

FE 67 A Cold Day in Hell, December 1941: The Finns and the Russians go at it in this small infantry only action. The action takes place in winter conditions on boards 8 and 42. This should make for good tourney action.

FE 68 Beast of Prey, March 1942: A real and true slugfest in the woods. Once again dug-in Russian defenders on boards 32 and 36 try to hold Germans from exiting the board. The Russians get infantry, fortifications and Guns while the Germans get SS infantry and some Stugs.

FE 69 Tiger Woods, August 1942: Yes! Another scenario with Tiger in its title!!! If that is not enough to get you excited then this scenario's OB should do it. The Germans get 4 Tigers up against a couple of Russian T-43's and a AA Truck. Each side gets a good number of infantry. This action takes place on boards 36 and 42.

FE 70 Worker's Settlement No. 8, September 1942: This cool infantry only scenario (well the Germans get one INF gun) takes place on board 33 and 4. This scenario has a cool twist for entry conditions with the Russians entering anywhere on 3 board edges. A cool twist in the VC makes for some uncertainty on where to attack. Sure to be a favorite for the tourney crowd.

FE 71 Cold Steel Rain, January 1943: This is another meaty scenario that should offer some good replay value given the variable VC. The Germans get infantry and some AT Guns and defend on boards 33 and 48 against attacking Russian infantry, OBA and some T-60 tanks. .

FE 72 Manos a la Manos, February 1943: The Spanish Blue Division makes its debut in this action on boards 13 and 18. The Spanish infantry with an AT Gun and some variable additional forces must defend some terrain against a lot of Russian infantry, tanks and Flamethrower tanks. The Russians got the numbers but do they have the time to capture the victory terrain?!

FE 73 Polar Star, February 1943: Another meaty old-fashioned scenario, this time on boards 17, 19 and 18. The Germans get 24 squads, fortifications, Stugs and some AT Guns and must hold off a swarm of 32 Russian squads, Assault guns and tanks from exiting and capturing some buildings. Lots of options in this one fore each side.

FE 74 Fruitless Fighting, March 1943: The classic capture the village type scenario on boards 12 and 17. This scenario features 20 Russian squads supported by tanks and assault guns attacking the village against an outpost of SS infantry and some fortifications. The Germans receive reinforcements in the form of infantry and 4 Tiger tanks.

FE 75 Porech'e Push, August 1943: My favorite of the scenarios in this pack. The Russians fight out of a bridgehead against a strong German force to capture the hills overlooking their bridgehead. Really get the flavor of the historic action in this one. The Russians get a bunch of infantry and an assortment of AFV against German infantry, guns and additional forces that they select from an available force pool. This scenario is set on boards 3, 8 and 49.

FE 76 The Battle of Krasnogvadeisk, January 1944: This is another one of those big scenarios that capture the flavor of east front action. Set on boards 18, 49 and 22 this is a meaty scenario with 26 Russian squads and 5 AFV attacking to capture some buildings against 21 squads, 4 tanks and some fortifications.

FE 77 Stalin's Revenge, June 1944: Another Finnish versus Russian scenario setup on boards 5 and 32. This is a smallish scenario featuring 9 Finnish squads and a couple of AT Guns against 15 Russian squads and 3 AFV. This is a brutal one for the Finnish as they attempt to stop the Russians from capturing some buildings.

In this action the Poles attempt a combined arms assault across the board 40 river into the Board 12 village against German light tanks, armored cars and infantry.

FE 14 Stab in the Back, September 1939: Poland is collapsing. The Poles are racing for the Rumanian border to salvage what they can.

FE 17 Philippine Scouts at Mabatang, January 1942: The battle of Bataan would prove two things; that the Japanese soldier was much better than the propaganda said and the Philippine Scouts were a tough breed.

FANATIC PACK #3
 
 

FANATIC ENTERPRISES is please to announce the release of FANATIC PACK #3; another fine scenario pack covering a variety of unique actions for the Advanced Squad Leader system. This scenario pack contains 12 well-tested, balanced, fun and different scenarios. We continue to strive for excellence in each product and hope you find this pack to be a worthwhile purchase. As always our scenarios are on card stock and per your wish the orders of battle have been included in boxes similar to other producers.

As a part of our continued effort to produce the best product we continue to listen to your input. Our European neighbors have expressed a concern regarding the presence of the nazi flag on the scenario card (used in the OOB, balance and Turn Record Chart). Apparently, there are legal restrictions against owning documents with this symbol on it. Therefore, we have these flags from our products. Therefore, our product should meet with their regulations in this regard.

A summary of the scenarios follows:

FE 38 Run From the Devil, September 1939: An interesting delaying action where the Poles must race the Germans across boards 40 and 23. There currently exist few scenarios that represent this challenging situation. Each side must constantly weigh the fire or move option as they push across the map. Each side gets motorcycle mounted troops armored cars and either tanks or tankettes.

FE 39 Misfortune, June 1940: A nice little tournament sized scenario pitting the British against the Germans in France. Featuring boards 23 and 49 this is a neat little scenario that can be played in an afternoon. The Germans get infantry, a few tanks and aerial observer directed OBA while the British get infantry and some AT Guns. The British will have some defensive maneuvering to do to keep the Germans out of the victory buildings.

FE 40 Such Impudence, June 1941: This is a fairly unique situation for ASL, a race from two directions. This scenario features the British against the Vichy French in Syria. Both sides race across the boards in search of HIP Ammo Counters. The British have the advantage of moving first but are farther away, but they know where the counters are. The Vichy are closer which gives them a tactical advantage. This is a real chess match featuring boards 49 and 22.

FE 41 Northern Lights, June 1941: The war in the far north of Russia is featured in this scenario on boards 52 and 40. This is an all infantry scenario between the Germans and the Russians where the Germans have to fight across the boards against dug in defenders. This is also a preview of a future scenario pack planned by Fanatic Enterprises covering the battles between the Russians and the Germans in the far north.

FE 42 Assault on Kunlun Pass, November 1941: Chinese combined arms!! Who would have thunk it? Chinese tanks, artillery and infantry attack across boards 18 and 9 against dug in Japanese troops. Dig out the Chapter H notes for this one as you will be using several rarely used Chinese vehicles. Just too cool given it's esoteric topic.

FE 43 The Thirsty First Goes In, January 1942: Back in Bataan for this scenario that was going to be in the Battlin' Bastards of Bataan Pack but was bumped to this package. On boards 17 and 32 American infantry must fight there way through dug in Japanese defenders. This is another infantry only tournament sized scenario.

FE 44 Those Malign Gray Slopes, July 1943: The Germans and Italians defend on boards 14 and 16 against American attackers. Medium sized scenario that is primarily infantry (the Germans get one tank reinforcement). A good solid slugfest.

FE 45 Out of Oranienbaum, January 1944: This is a good old-fashioned east front scenario with a Squad Leader feel to it. Using boards 16 and 19 the Russians try to blast through a screen of Luftwaffe ground personnel backed up by an AA Gun before the Germans receive reinforcements in the form of some SS tanks and infantry. The Russians get a strong combined force of infantry and tanks and self propelled guns.

FE 46 Old Fashioned Valor, June 1944: Another Chinese-Japanese scenario featuring Chinese armor, this time on boards 38 and 37. The Japanese will need all their defensive skills to stop the Chinese armor-infantry force. The Japanese get a bunch of fortifications and a couple of INF Guns to stop a large Chinese force including 5 AFV's.

FE 47 Aux Barricades!, August 1944: This is a DASL scenario set in Paris during the Liberation on boards d and a. A bunch of FFI infantry must hold onto a building against second rate German troops supported by second rate German armor. Should be interesting for those who like to play on the bigger hexes.

FE 48 Meximeux Mess, September 1944: An interesting situation pits an American force in between two strong German pincers on boards 45 and 51. The Germans get a bunch of squads and 7 AFV's against decent American force supported by FFI, a few pieces of ordnance and a self propelled gun. The Americans will quickly feel the press from all sides in this one, but will be happy for the support from their French Allies.

FE 49 Bloody Hell, January 1945: This is a reissue of a scenario that was formerly on the Coastal Fortress website incorporating a number of changes that addressed some balance issues. Set on boards 38, 11, 18 and 2 the Japanese dug in defenders are trying to keep a very powerful combined arms force of Americans off the board 2 hills. The Americans get OBA, tanks and a strong infantry force. The Japanese get fortifications, armor, guns and infantry. A truly harsh scenario for both sides.

 

 

BLITZKRIEG PACK

 This scenario pack contains 18 well-tested, balanced, fun and different scenarios.

The scenario pack covers the early war from Poland to the beginning of Barbarossa and involves a multitude of combatants and situations.

A summary of the scenarios follows:

FE 78 The Birth of Blitzkrieg, September 1939: A quick tourney sized scenario featuring boards 5 and 10. This scenario pits German armor against Polish infantry supported by an AT Gun. Should be good for fast play, allowing for multiple playings in one sitting.

FE 79 Motorcycle Probe, September 1939: This interesting scenario is an attempt to represent a tactical situation difficult to model in ASL, a reconnaissance. German motorcycle infantry must seek out HIP Polish units before their reinforcements can come on.

FE 80 The World Aflame, September 1939: Another Polish vs. German scenario, this time on boards 5 and 12. This scenario is a meaty scenario, featuring combined arms for each side with lots of armor, guns, OBA, fortifications. Lots of heavy duty ASL.

FE 81 Smialya, September 1939: This is another meaty scenario with lots of action on boards 5 and 12. This scenario features armor, infantry with guns, air support and fortifications and ARMORED TRAINS!!! I have some armored train rules for use in this scenario that will make this a very unique ASL scenario!!

FE 82 Mokra Melee, September 1939: A very good, moderate sized scenario on boards 48 and 52. This scenario features armor and infantry and is a good old average ASL scenario! There are some unique woods rules allowing for some vehicular woods movement.

FE 83 The Fifth Column, September 1939: OOOH BOY a very unique one. German partisan-type infantry attack some poor quality Polish infantry supported by a crappy armored car. Uses board 3 and is a tourney sized one. This is a reissue of a scenario previously published on the Coastal Fortress website.

FE 84 Black Monday, September 1939: This is a meaty Deluxe board City fight on boards a, b, c and d. The scenario pits a combined arms force of Germans attacking a dug in Polish force supported by some rarely seen Polish vehicles and Guns. A very interesting scenario. This is a reissue and revision of a scenario previously published on the Coastal Fortress website.

FE 85 Danish Pride, April 1940: This is another of those good old fashioned, no-frills type scenarios featuring the Germans attacking the Danes during their one day conquest. This scenario features German infantry supported by armored cars attacking Danish infantry supported by guns and fortifications on board 22. This is a reissue of a scenario previously published on the Coastal Fortress website.

FE 86 The End at Dombaas, April 1940: This is a cool little scenario featuring dug in and surrounded German paratroopers being attacked by the Norwegian army on boards 4 and 44. The Germans hold some Norwegian prisoners and the Norwegians using guns and mortars and attacking from all board edges must kill Gerries and release the prisoners.

FE 87 Lightning War, May 1940: This scenario features the Germans and the French meeting in a head on collision on boards 5 and 3. Both sides get armor and infantry. Smallish, tourney sized scenario that plays pretty quickly.

FE 88 Crossing the Meuse, May 1940: This scenario is an infantry only scenario set on board 2 between the French and the Germans. Elite German squads armed with FT and DC have to dig French infantry out of some pillboxes.

FE 89 The Hard Way, May 1940: This is a good-sized river-crossing scenario between the Germans and the French. The Germans get infantry of course, and are supported by an AA halftrack and some assault guns, against some dug in infantry. The Germans have to cross the river and capture some houses. Set on boards 8 and 10.

FE 90 Busted at Bulson, May 1940: An all armor scenario set on boards 19 and 44 pitting German and French armor against each other. I enjoy these all armor scenario and this one is the classic French vs. German armor scenario, heavy armored but slow tanks versus more the mobile German tanks equipped with better radios. Should be a classic.

FE 91 Elan, May 1940: German combined arms have to dig French forces out of a town, set on boards 44 and 52. A good meaty scenario.

FE 92 Loveluck, May 1940: A small tourney sized scenario featuring the Germans and the British. A German platoon and some tanks try to capture some buildings from a British platoon supported by some guns. Very quick play allows for much replay value. Set on board 33.

FE 93 Guerra Del Lampo, November 1940: The Italians make an effort at Blitzkrieg. A strong infantry and AFV force try to kick some Greek infantry out of the board 12 village and/or cross the board 11 hills. A good sized scenario with many options for each side, defend, attack, counterattack, run off board, capture buildings, kill opponents, etc. Lots to do with lots of replay value.

FE 94 Krushed at Kroussia, April 1941: The Germans arrive to help their Italian allies. This scenario pits German infantry and armor attacking dug in Greeks supported by armor. The action takes place on boards 2 and 18. The Greeks should get some good chances at counterattacks and a flexible defense allows for lots of defensive options.

FE 95 Branzini Brouhaha, July 1941: Set on board 44 this scenario pits the Rumanians against the Russians. This scenario requires vehicles and counters from Armies of Oblivion so this is another reason to encourage MMP to complete that module. This scenario features Rumanian armor, along with infantry, attacking dug in Russians reinforced by armor.

 

FANATIC PACK #4

 

FE CG1: No Pasaran!: This is a Platoon Leader Campaign Game featuring the Guerra Civil rules. Set in Madrid early in the civil war and utilizing boards 49, 40 and 6, this CG features a Nationalist force attacking a defending Republican force. Each side gets a nice selection of armor and ordinance plus a nice selection of infantry types. This CG is moderately sized at 8 dates and should be a lot of fun for fans of GC.

FE 128 Carnage at Keren: This is a desert scenario set on boards 29, 31 and HOB I and HOB II (the Higher Ground boards). The scenario features a pair of defending Italian groups holding off a moderately sized force of Indian infantry, tanks and OBA.

FE 129 Colonel Saeki’s Raid: Here is another of those Fanatic Enterprises specialties, a unique and rare action. This one features Japanese cavalry attacking an ambushing British force. The Japanese get some elite troops mounted on horses and a couple of tankettes against a smallish British force supported by a couple of carriers. This scenario is set on board 38 and 47. A smallish tourney sized scenario.

FE CG2 Desert Crucible: This is another Platoon Leader Campaign Game. This is a mid war desert battle set on boards 28, 29 and 30. The British defend a depression in the desert against a large Italian and German combined arms force. This 5 date CG plays very fast with short numbers of dates, quick action and lots of dead troops! Bloody.

FE 131 Take That Damn Factory: This is a scenario set on a part of the Dzerhzinsky Tractor Works map. More Stalingrad action! This is a meaty scenario reminiscent of the best Red Barricades scenarios for this under appreciated map.

FE 132 Land of Malaria and Pain: This is a nasty jungle fight between the British and Japanese set on boards 36 and 39. The Japanese get to purchase fortifications and are in the element on defense. The Brits get some Valentine tanks in support so this should be classic PTO action with lots of replay value!

FE 133 Handed on a Silver Platter: What would an ASL pack be without a Tiger scenario?! This one features the HOB Higher Ground boards with a combined arms German force including Tigers attacking a smaller, yet dug in Russian force.

 

BARBAROSSA NORTH PACK

This scenario pack features 8 scenarios covering the action in the far north during the opening portion of Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union.

The scenarios are as follows:

FE 108 No Walkover: 13 German squads attack up the board 50 hill from board 52 against 8 entrenched Russian squads. Note that given the theater of operations, hills and woods will play a big part.

FE 109 Salla: How does infantry go about tackling a steel beast? Well this scenario will answer that question. Set on boards 32 and 38, the Germans get 12 squads to capture some buildings and maybe even taking out a KV-2 tank. The Russians get the tank and 9 squads to help in the defense. Bone up on CCV and DC attacks.

FE 110 Not So Supermen: For those of you used to playing the German 658 SS Supermen this scenario will be a nice surprise. Not all of the German SS troops were the Ubermen of 658 fame. This scenario features 11 German SS squads trying to hold some buildings against 14 Russian squads supported by some tanks. I had hoped to feature the BT-2 Russian tank in this scenario, but AoO has not yet been released so I HAD to change to the BT-5 tank. Come on MMP! Get AoO done! :O) This scenario is set on boards 44 and 43.

FE 111 French Castoffs: This scenario features an interesting rarity. Russian and French tanks facing off! Will the early war Russian tanks be able to stop the French armor? Try your hand at this scenario, which features 16 German squads, Hotchkiss and Somua tanks taking on 13 Russian squads and lots of armor on boards 11 and 43.

FE 112 Old Tactics, New Victims: What would a Finland scenario pack be without a Finnish scenario? Well this scenario features the Finns using their Motti tactic to take out some Russian infantry. 9 Finnish squads take on 8 Russian squads. Finns have to move fast on board 52 to capture a rail station.

FE 113 Blood on the Timbers: Another one of those hill and woods scenarios. This time on boards 39 and 50. Now you will HAVE to overcome your fear of board 39 and get some exciting close quarters action going. Bone up on your CX and advance versus difficult terrain rules for this scenario featuring 15 German squads against 13 Russian entrenched defenders.

FE 114 Hide & Seek: Now this is an interesting situation. Set on board 32, both sides set up HIP. This should be interesting as your opponent is popping out of the woods all around you, lot of CC, HtH CC, Melee, blood and more blood, not for the squeamish. 11 squads vs. 11 squads in a quick playing scenario with loads of replay value.

FE 115 Reindeer Games: The Finns are back fighting partisans in the woods. Set on boards 42 and 32, 13 Finnish squads try to capture buildings or kill up to 19 Partisan squads. This is another one sure to be bloody!

 




Balkan Warfare Pack Released Sept 06

FE 50 Hungarian Action: Hungarian paratroopers drop into action! Yes, I said Hungarian Paratroopers!! This battle is the one fight where the Hungarian paratroopers actually did a combat drop.

Uses boards 23 and 49 and is medium sized.

FE 51 Wolf Pack in the Hills: Many of you have been clamoring for a good ambush scenario. Ok maybe one of you, but here is a cool situation.

A smaller sized scenario that should allow for some good replay.

FE 55 Friends No More: Here is cool scenario set on boards 4, 8 and FE1 (free for download from my website, for use with VASL). Germans and Rumanians try to control a bridge with the Germans having to get some VP over the bridge. Again, another smaller tourney sized scenario.
