ANNOUNCEMENT #18 NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT
 

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:

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.

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.

FANATIC ENTERPRISES is please to announce the release of The Luzon Pack; another fine scenario pack covering a variety of unique actions for the Advanced Squad Leader system.

The scenario pack includes 12 scenarios covering the Luzon campaign and covers a nice variety of actions and features many Japanese vehicles rarely used in ASL scenarios.

A summary of the scenarios follows:

FE 96 Luzon Fire!: A small scenario set on board 38. The scenario features a small American guerilla force attacking an isolated Japanese garrison. This is a nice tourney sized scenario.

FE 97 Potpot Potshot: This scenario is also set on board 38. This is a small scenario, set at night with a dug in American force supported by an AT Gun and a scout car defending against a tank supported Japanese force out to capture terrain and kill some Americans.

FE 98 Spirited Action: This is a moderately sized scenario set on board 48. The Japanese defend the village with a combination of infantry and armor against a strong American infantry force supported by 5 tanks. The Americans are out to capture some buildings.

FE 99 Nasty Little Firefight: This is a small scenario set on board 35. A night action the Japanese have to kill a few Americans or capture some terrain against a platoon of dug-in GI’s. The Japanese get a single tank to aid them.

FE100 San Manuel #1: Another moderate sized scenario set on boards 32 and 42. This is a nice and bloody fight to capture buildings. Each side gets a good amount of armor and a nice number of infantry.

FE 101 San Manuel #2: This one is set on board 22. This scenario is a small to medium sized scenario featuring a defending Japanese infantry force supported by 3 tanks. The American infantry is supported by some OBA. The Americans are trying to knock out the tanks or capture some buildings.

FE 102 Spirit of Bushido: Here is another night scenario, this time set on board 3. The Americans are defending against an attacking Japanese force. Each side is a combination of infantry and armor. Here is a nice night banzai attack, if you don’t love that you don’t love PTO!!!

FE 103 Yanangimoto: This is a medium to large sized scenario featuring a defending American force having to defend a lot of terrain. They are supported by a HMC and reinforced by more HMC and GMC. The Japanese attack with a large force of infantry and armor. This scenario is set on boards 32 and 44.

FE 104 An Army Travels on It’s Stomach: Ok I have heard your request and attempted to use HASL maps in some scenarios. This one features a corner of Pegasus Bridge, featuring irrigation ditches. This scenario is smallish and pits American infantry supported by 3 AFV against some dug in Japanese infantry and a tank and AT Gun.

FE 105 Reckless Behavior: Here is a cool, unique scenario representing an armored ambush. Set on board 49, a convoy of Japanese trucks and APC’s run into an American reconnaissance force. This one is sure to be bloody.

FE 106 Hero in Our Midst: This scenario features a combined arms American force attacking a dug in Japanese force of infantry and guns. Set on boards 22 and 49, the Americans receive a combined arms force including OBA, tanks, and a good amount of infantry. This scenario details the action for which Sgt. Donald Rudolph received his Medal of Honor. A summary of the Medal of Honor citation is included with the scenario pack.

FE 107 Norton’s Knob: This is the requisite scenario featuring caves. Ok there are three caves so hopefully this won’t put off too many players. In fact, this scenario may be a good introduction to players to cave rules. The scenario is set on board 17 and 50. The Japanese get some infantry and defend the hills against a strong American force of infantry supported by a heavy AA Gun.
