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
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:
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fanatic Enterprises continues to enlist the assistance of several ASL'ers as Playtesters and Proofreaders and wish to offer
my gratitude and thanks.
