Or “I guess I really should do something again with all this ASL crap I have” AP 162 The Governor AAR So after long hiatus playing Advanced Squad Leader since the Before Times & beyond (getting on close to three years now I think) I finally got around to playing a VASL game this Spring.Continue reading “Back in the swing of things (?)”

By Crom, painting Conan miniatures!

In which our brave narrator tries to get caught up on the King’s Pledge, Nordheim, Stygia, Khitai, & Conan the Conqueror expansion with all the fixings. Might be a while, stay tuned.

So, with the recent & long-overdue arrival of the Conan the Conqueror kickstarter expansion for Conan, with all the additional King’s Pledge add-ons, we have started this campaign, with yours truly in the role of Overlord & an unruly cast of rogues for theContinue reading “The Legend of the Devil in Iron”

For the Queen! Err, King!

ASL WO37 The Vital Hours AAR End of game, the Brit 9-2-led MMG killstack (including captured MMG) knocks out the 9-1 LMG and squad who were the final main strongpoint blocking the exit area as they fail 2MCs from a 20 plus 1 shot. The Airborne amoeba reconfigures to a snake and squiggles off theContinue reading “For the Queen! Err, King!”
