    Re: New to ATS

    Thanks a lot Doug. I realize I made a mistake, considering my tanks were actually moving (I'm currently trying to play The Bardia Waterworks) and my virtual opponent is a bit angry and already trying to find excuses for his impending defeat ...
    I'll probably have other questions later on.
    Your replies are very helpful. Thanks again.

    Re: New to ATS

    Hi all,
    do you know if there is one Infantry-only scenario that can be downloaded for free on the internet and involving British, German or Italian troops ? I bought Advanced Tobruk but there is none of them in the box, apart from the little basic one to be played with the basic rules. I started learning the full rules of the games and it's quite OK for the time being but I would also like to practise gradually.
    Thanks
    L.

    Re: New to ATS

    As an echo to my previous message, I'm currently trying to find a way of playing infantry-only scenarios involving British, German or Italian troops (I've only got the Advanced Tobruk module and unfortunately, there are no Americans in it !)
    Browsing various sites, I came across a site you've probably known for years : ATS On The Table. Well, on this site, I found lots of ASL scenarios conversions to ATS, which got me pretty excited as I know a lot of ASL scenarios and it looked like what I was looking for.
    Unfortunately I realized that not many of them could actually be played with the OB I have (no Americans and no Russians of course !).
    I eventually made up my mind on SK10 (Paper Army) involving British and Italian troops. But much to my surprise, I saw that I needed 5|5|8 Italian squads, unfortunately unavailable in the Italian OB I got with Advanced Tobruk.
    Does it mean that when you buy an ATS module, you don't necessarily get the whole OB of the various nationalities involved, like in ASL ?
    Well, it doesn't really matter actually, as I can consider the 5|5|7 squads I got have a morale of 8 but I was just wondering, coming from the ASL world ...
    Hope my English is understandable. I don't really feel confident when it comes to talking about rather technical matters ...
    Thank you and enjoy !

    Usually when you buy an ATS game the counters that come with the game will apply to the scenarios in that game. Most ATS boxed games are self-contained meaning everything included to play the scenarios are with game.

    I think that on the Critical Hit website you can buy single sheets of counters so if you are interested in the Americans just buy a single sheet of counters and go from there.

    Re: New to ATS

    Hi everybody! I have just joined ATS world by buying "Berlin - Red Victory". I've seen the last time sb wrote here was long ago, but I hope you going to read it so I can take some advices, clarify some points about the rules, and so on. I also intend to buy ASL (up to now just playing Panzerblitz, TCS, Memoir'44, etc) but I definitely can't understand this grudge between these two groups of players, but anyway lol

    See ya!
