Hey all.

I printed out a really nice counter storage chart located here:
http://www.texas-asl.com/download/FULL%20INFO.pdf

In order to overhaul my storage solution. But... am I missing something, or is there no spot to place the Finnish counters? That seems like a pretty basic thing to overlook, since they come in THE main module (BV). Just curious if I'm overlooking something simple here

ASL counter storage is a game on its own.

What you could do, especially since you only have BV right now (I'm guessing--did you order HP?) is store elite Finns with the elite Germans, 1st line with 1st line etc. You'll easily be able to pull them out in play since they have a different color in 3rd edition (1st edition, the Finns were the same color as Germans).

That makes sense. I'll probably do that.

And nope, no HP yet! It uses too many maps that I don't have. I'll probably go with FKaC or RS next since they're in print. FKaC especially looks like it'd be a good next step because I don't think it has anything I can't play with just it + BV.

Three or four of the FKaC scenarios use gliders which came in Yanks! But nonetheless its a great modyle and lots of the scenarios are very playable.

It will also probably go OOP before RS since it is a little older.

I think the night/glider stuff might be in the 3rd edition BV..

I owe some gliders. They should be from Paratrooper: ASL Module 2 or Beyond Valor: ASL Module 1 I have no Yanks.

Except that gliders didn't come with either of those products. ninja The only official ASL releases containing glider counters have been Yanks and Festung Budapest.
