- Is there a new edition (new counters and rulebook) of AtB coming out and, if yes, when will that be approx.?
There is. I'm not sure when it will be coming out. Definitely after Guadalcanal, not sure if it will be before or after First Men In thouh.
- Is there any insight into 'First Men In's' suitability to teach the game system (ie are there introductory scenarios or will it be supposed that players already have a good grasp of the ruleset through the previous titles)?
I'm confident that it will have this programmed instruction approach. It has been a hallmark of the series and is part of the reason that so many non-wargamers have been able to get into the series.
