what are some of the key unique things that the Italians bring to the table?

Units / weapons / special rules / etc?

Low firepower, low morale.  They generally have to pay lax penalties.  I don't remember anything noteworthy about their weapons or vehicles.

Hollow Legions also has Ethiopians and Eritrean troops.  The special rules in Hollow Legions are the desert rules, which I have not yet attempted.

Hollow Legions also came with a ton of scenarios.


I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.

there's some ASL news in today's Newsday, with updates to the pocket bundle of rules, as well as some official scenario releases

I do enjoy Deluxe ASL, but prefer a big scenario over a big map.

While on the topic of recent ASL releases; earlier this month MMP started shipping their latest historical module Sword and Fire: Manila. I've avoided ordering a copy myself, but hear it is a beast with six 24” x 37” maps. Super interesting subject mater too. I'm sure to cave on this one at some point.



Just this week MMP announced the reprint of Hakkaa Päälle, the Finish core module for ASL, and opened it up for preorders. If you've ever wanted to do battle with aerosani's this is probably the only place you'll get some.
