ASL Annual 95 promised a lot, but failed to deliver. 1993 saw two “annuals” and promised an increase in ASL related releases. 1994, however, saw no publication at all. We all waited on the return of the Annual in ’95.
At 95 pages long the 1995 Annual was the largest to date, and 24 scenarios set a new standard.
The magazine also included some long awaited DASL overlays.
Unfortunately, as I said, the Annual disappointed, often being regarded as the worst of the annuals.
The problems started at the beginning. The DASL overlays were to small.
The articles started well, with an interesting piece on Japanese paratroop forces. Also included was a well presented review of the routing rules, and a well written series replay of a KGP scenario, Festung St Edouard.
The rest were of an ordinary standard. Two covered tournament scenarios used at different tournaments, one covered scenarios associated with the landings in Normandy 50 years earlier, and another tried to rehash the leader campaign from the original SL. A lot of writing with little really to say.
The scenarios covered the classic, such as Wintergewitter A70, to the slightly odd, such as Cutting out a Strongpoint A90, which has four boards defended with one and a half squads, two guns, four Italian Tankettes and a captured Matilda being attacked by a larger British force in the desert.
Many of the scenarios need errata, so look up the individual scenarios.
