Hello to everyone at the Mailing List. I just wanted everyone to know what is up with our own Amateur ASL Newsletter, Dispatches from the Bunker. We will start working on Issue #32 by next month with 4 new scenarios, I'll have details on what they are in my next update in November. Also, As has been noted this Summer I am retiring Back-Issues #11 - #20. I have a few spares that will only be sold at the regional tournaments in Albany and at the Nor'Easter, but in any event, they will resurface down the line as free pdf. downloads on our informational website: www.aslbunker.com website. Meanwhile, Issue #31 was unveiled at last months Bunker Bash and shipped out 4 weeks ago. We have the usual 4 new scenarios: Roadside Assistance: Great looking small, tourney style scenario with a stranded German SMG SPW 251 and squad waiting to be rescued by light armor recon elements on boards 2 & 3. Greek Partisans are approaching from several directions to eliminate them and prevent exit. Lots of maneuver and replayability from that Maine-iac Ted Wilcox. Block to Bataan: Steve Johns has done it again with another tourney style classic with desperate elements of the Philippine 26th Cavalry Regiment (along with an AT Gun and Stuart Tank) \trying to block the Japanese southward advance toward Bataan. The Japanese have a mixed company of Infantry and 5 Tanks in support. Great PTO FUN on Board 37. Pot of Stew: Michael Klautky's latest finds us at Kursk in the middle of the battle at Obayan, both sides have reinforced companies of Infantry with many toys and a bunch of armor support already engaged in battle. Both sides do simultaneous set up either on 2 sets of identical boards or by writing down your positions and then everyone is placed on board with Melees right off the bat a good possibility. A Ton of Kursk combined arms FUN. 4 turn game length makes it playable in one sitting. 138 of the 138th: Andy Hershey leads us back to Red Barricades with this look at the aftermath of the German last ditch November offensive to drive the Soviet remnants into the Volga. the NE quadrant of the map is used with both sides attacking and defending. Medium to large size with the OBs showing the beat up state both sides were on November 17th just before the big Russian counter-offensive north and south of the city. Great to play a new scenario on that classic RB map. Also in this Issue is Jim Torkelson's article on setting up your scenario, Carl Nogueira's beginning look at the Japanese in ASL and my look at the local ASL scene including news on the Bunker Bash, Albany and Nor'Easter ournaments. For those unfamiliar with Dispatches, it is a 12 page Amateur ASL Newsletter that comes to the greater ASL Community twice a year, sometime in March and September courtesy of the New England ASL Community, including the Bunker Crew and our yasl Brothers in Southern New England. It typically contains 3 New Scenarios, Analysis of each one, a Main Article on any aspect of the game system, Tactical Tips, ASL News and Tournament Updates from our region.
