I see their is an official announcement for ANZAC Attack on the Lock 'n Load web site, apparently shipping later this month. Hopefully I can get a copy at Origins.

It looks like they've changed the style of their counter art. It looks a little more cartoony, but should also be a lot clearer. While I've come to like the original counters, they could be a bit indistinct.

I've become quite fond of LnL, so I look forward to the expansion. Best news - one new page or rules, which apparently includes some streamlining of core rules. I can live with that. Maybe they cleaned up the hill LOS rules a little.

I share your enthusiasm for Lock 'N Load, Chris. I played TONS of Squad Leader over the years, but never did dive into the ASL madness. I was skeptical when Shrapnel announced that LnL would have the same flavor and feel of Squad Leader but with much simpler rules and faster play. Well, much to their surprise, they did it.

Now, I just need to find the time to play it more often!

"...also be a lot clearer."

You should tell Mark - he will love to hear that, as this was one of his points why he prefers them.

As a small unit tactical addict I'm starting to get get the itch for LnL and I'm an expansions junkie too.

Hmm, I'm not sure I like the new art for the expansion. There's always a fine line in wargaming, and the new look is just a little too cartoony for me. The VC heroine with a blazing machine gun in each hand belongs in a Hong Kong action movie, not a wargame simulating Vietnam. Still, I like LnL, and I'll probably get the expansion for it.
