Just spotted this on ConSimWorld (posted by Chas Argent yesterday):

Quote:
The ball has been rolling for some time on the MMP version of the full PTO package. This will combine all the counters, scenarios, boards, overlays and rules which originally appeared in Code of Bushido and Gung Ho, in addition to extra scenarios. Here is the current status of the project:

1) Dave Childs & Keith Dalton are almost done with the counter sheets; Dave is re-doing all the images, feeding them to Keith to make counters, then Dave is taking the counters and creating the final sheets. Pain in the ass.

2) Dave is re-flowing chapter G to match the "new" official layout, and is inserting new board and overlay art. Once this step is done Chapter G will need extensive proofing.

3) Chapter H (Japanese, Chinese, and Landing Craft) will be complete as soon as Keith can get the remaining counter images to Dave and Dave can insert them. Then it's off to proofing for this as well.

4) The 5 map boards (34-39) have been painted by Kurt Miller and are done and ready for proofing.

5) The Overlays are almost done, though we still need the Gavutu-Tanambogo overlays to be painted by Kurt since it's been decided to include that in the package. All will be proofed when complete.

6) Perry and I are working with a group of players on scenario selection above and beyond the original CoB/GH 16. We will also be working on incorporating errata and Balance adjustments for those which need help. All of these will need to be laid out though Dave has already done most of the original 16. There is no final number yet set for the package, but I'd guess we're headed for 30 scenarios total (since we already have 19, including G-T ). Could be more or less, however. The balance will be made of up of out-of-print scenarios which fit the package.

For those who aren't aware, ASL Annual '93b was originally printed in ASL Annual '93b. It's a nice little package, and it's great to see it scheduled to be back in print.

Trust me, it's getting closer--almost imminent because I finally shelled out good cash for Code of Bushido.

...PTO core...

The counters are in proofing as we speak; maps have been proofed and need to have some corrections made; scenarios/Chapter G/Chapter H are all close to done.

Chas just posted this in the ASL game listing

" I think we're looking at this order of reprints, give or take:

FKaC (British)
Rising Sun (all Japanese/Chinese/US Marine/Early US Army)
Hollow Legions 3 (Italians and Desert, and including the Soldiers of the Negus counters and scenarios)
Yanks 2 (US Army)
Croix De Guerre 2 (French)

Somewhere in there Armies of Oblivion will need to be reprinted but there are no immediate plans for that. "


and in the hells corner post he mentions that FKAC this year and Rising Sun may slip to 2011

Another update, this time from the MMP official blog:

Rising Sun (the combined Japanese/Chinese/US Marine PTO reprint) continues to gather steam.
The 32 scenarios are currently being proofed and the last of the rules edits are under review. The 2nd edition of Chapter G will contain several "Q&A" clarifications from the original. The scenarios themselves have had balance adjustments incorporated as needed, and also will under some "modernizing" of their language to bring rules references and so on up to current practice.
Our goal is still to complete RS by the end of this year and have it ready fro pre-order.


The entry was from last August, with a bit of luck we could be preordering on three months... if we are lucky. whistle
