Advanced Squad Leader – Swedish Volunteers Unboxing
Below is an “unboxing” video of MMP’s new ASL Action Pack #15 – Swedish Volunteers.
Swedish Volunteers is a re-print and updating of a third party pack of the same name released in 2009 by Martin Svärd, Erik Leander, et al.
Note about the pictures above. The color of the Swedish counters most closely matches the 2nd image. The lighting in images 3 and 4 seems to be washing out the color. The video below represents the color quite accurately.
Here’s the official MMP blurb from their website:
Action Pack #15: Swedish Volunteers is MMP’s production of the original Swedish Volunteers scenario pack by Martin Svärd and Erik Leander. Technically neutral during WWII, Sweden still offered her assistance in the wider defense of her Nordic neighbors through the formation of Frivilligkåren (the Volunteer Corps). Though this corps was demobilized in 1940, Swedish volunteers continued to see action during the German invasion of Norway and later during the Continuation War allied with Finland and Germany against the Soviet Union.
The 16 scenarios in Action Pack #15: Swedish Volunteers include all 14 from the original release, which have been updated using official layout and terminology, and in some cases updated for balance, as well as two additional scenarios, one previously published by Friendly Fire and one brand-new scenario. These cover a variety of actions from the Swedish defense of Märkäjärvi, Finland in 1940 during The Winter War to Swedes united with Norwegian and British forces in Norway during Operation WESERÜBUNG to battles against Soviet forces during the Continuation War of 1941-44.
