    Finally had the time to get the 2nd rough draft of the rules done. Took all my notes and the new graphics and piled them into a draft the playtesters can use. Then to make matters even better I sent that draft to the guy doing the editing so we can clean them all up and get them ready to turn in to LnLP.

    Good Hunting.

    We are continuing to edit the rules and work on the expanded scenarios.

    With that in mind the final scenario mix has been fixed.

    Several new counters were added to the mix. This may not reflect the last change to the counter mix but it is getting much closer. By the end of summer the game should be ready to turn over to LnLP for printing. That's the goal at least.

    Here are the new vehicles added to the counter mix.

    AH-1
    UH-60
    OH-58
    M-60A3
    M966

    BMP-1
    BRDM 3

    Been busy getting ready for WBC and getting physical playtest kits ready for distribution.

    While doing that I've gone over every single counter.

    Here are some of the changes that playtesting and my decision making process have come up with.

    First we have the new Hero counters. They may activate anyone with a clear LOS to them.

    Weapons with back blast are now marked with a back blast cone.

    These weapons may not be fired in a building.

    Adding a mark, in the upper left corner, to the basic 50 card Tactical Event Card Deck.

    This will allow me to have more than 50 cards in the choices. I'll have some options that you can choose to include in your Tactical Event Draw Deck. The cards that will be included will have an equal number of cards removed. That will keep the draw deck at 50.
