AP8 should certainly be out this year. Once it hits its P# we'll send it to the printers and start the process. After that it's simply a question of where it fits in the MMP production/shipping queue.

AFAIK we don't have plans currently to reprint any Journals. I'll look into the PDF thing.

Wow!looks good.

Quote:
The ten scenarios included in Roads Through Rome require all ASL core modules.

I hope most of them dont need all modules

Dare I ask an ETA? like this year or next ?

PS
Also any chance of reprinting/pdf editions of journals? (im missing vol 4)


The scenario Nationalities are:

American (and USMC counters/rules), German, Italian (one scenario uses Italian Armored Cars) and British/Canadian/Free French(Moroccan).

Extra maps (besides the 3 included)needed are:

2,6,7,10,16,19,21,40,44,46,60

Chapters A-E, G and H are also needed.

So, you really do not need the entire game system, just Yanks, WoA (or FKaC), Gung Ho (for 2 scenarios that use USMC counters to represent FSSF units), Hollow Legions (for 1 scenario) and BV.

So in Roads through Rome action pack...

1. You need Chapter G with its Jungle terrain specifications. Oh, those beautiful palm trees in Napoli, the wild kunai grass in the Latium, the mysterious cave entrances in the Apennines...

2. You need core module Gung Ho with its Chinese troopers and Dare Death squads. Dare Death squads in Italy? Someone did not do their homework... Maybe some easy mistake between Chinese and Italian culture? Hey, both have great food!

3. You need US marine counters, no doubt to reenact the Anzio landings and finally make them right!

and, of course...

4. Italians only appear in 10% of the scenarios. After all, did you expect Italians in Italy?

I must have it!

Quite a few incorrect assumptions.
You need Gung Ho for the USMC rules and the 6-5-8 counters...that's all. They are used to represent these guys which do NOT fit within the regular US unit structure:

By the date of all but one of these scenarios the Italians had an Armistice with the Allies. So, they are included in one scenario set in Tunisia.

Yep, in the BGG forums the symbol means "humor posting" or even "ironic". And when posting in ASL forums you should better not forget them.

Anyway, thanks for clearing any doubts regarding the Sicilian Deep Jungles.

I'm still imagining those Japanese squads launching banzai charges to be the first to get that delicious pizza.

All the Italians are in Russia, where they are appearing in AP3.

When are we gonna get a scenario in which some Turkish squads do a beach landing in Italy and fight some Sabines? The Turks win when they have amassed 20 CVP in prisoners.
