ASL Journal #10
Product Image
     Currently Out of Print!
ASL Journal 10 is Multi-Man Publishing’s magazine for Advanced Squad Leader and features six brand-new articles, the latest Q&A/errata, sixteen ASL scenarios printed on cardstock, and two cardstock player aids.
ASL Journal 10’s new format features separate, cardstock scenarios, rather than the traditional method of binding the scenarios in with the rest of the pages, with the magazine itself now printed on the same 80-pound gloss paper we use for our Special Ops magazine. Players will no longer have to photocopy the scenarios or remove them from the magazine prior to playing, and the new glossy paper for the 48-page magazine proper will significantly improve the brightness and clarity of articles therein. Using scenario card inserts also makes it easier to include other inserts, such as the player aids also provided in ASL Journal 10.
ASL Journal 10 contents include the following:
Scenario Replay of the Festung Budapest scenario FB17 Stalingrad Redux, with Phil Palmer, John Slotwinski, and Sean Deller;
Spencer Armstrong’s When In The War? is a survey of date-dependent rules in table format;
• Robert Wolkey aims to ease newbie pain in The Beginner Blues;
Bruno Nitrosso’s Close Combat Simulator guides you to a better approach in CC;
• Bret Hildebran’s Son of Squad Bleeder is a DYO-esque trio of scenarios;
Aaron Cleavin explores low-odds FP attacks and Sniper tactics in Bullet In The Head;
Debriefing, this issue’s errata updates;

Splitting out the scenario cards - OK, I can live with that, it has its advantages. But printing on gloss paper? Are you nuts? Gloss is gross, cheap and tacky. No more Journals for me I'm afraid, I'll treasures nos. 1-9 as the best ever.

Greg Colman says...

I like the old matte paper! My rating reflects the choice of paper not the content.

Peter Quant says...

Change of paper! Now glossy paper, which I don't like at all... Used to be much nicer material. Articles are OK, scenarios look very nice, Budapest QRC is printed on too thin paper to be safe. I rather pay a bit more for the better paper material of the older Journals!

JiimH says...

I greatly appreciate the scenarios being separate on card stock and not having to yank the staples out to copy them. I also find the brighter, whiter paper easier on my older eyes. Despite what others think, I hope that you continue using the brighter, glossy paper in the future. Sometimes change is a good thing.

Kevin Gallagher says...

[I'm only rating the new glossy paper used in this issue of the journal.] I have to agree, glossy paper in a journal is truly annoying. Glare reflecting off of the pages from overhead lights and table lamps is a real problem. Just because you make the claim "the new glossy paper for the 48-page magazine proper will significantly improve the brightness and clarity of articles therein", doesn't make it so, especially the "clarity" claim! Issue Nine's matte finish paper provides articles which are both more than sufficiently bright and clear. By switching, you have done a disservice to your customers. (Could it be the real motivation to switch is due to the new glossy paper and printing process being less expensive?)

Bruce Probst says...

Separate scenarios (and other "extras"): very good. Glossy paper: bad. I had no trouble reading the old matte-style issues, so I have no idea where the claim about "significant improved clarity" comes from. Where are the statistics to back that claim up? Why were the FB "FAQ" not published as standard Q&A, with links to specific rules sections? The articles were generally well-written and well-presented, but the CC Simulator article takes up about twice as many pages as it should have.

OttoBomb says...

Really, really appreciate the separate scenarios. Please continue this in future publications. Paper quality is a not a problem for me at all as it appears to be for some others.
