It’s that time of year again … when the wizards behind the curtain at MMP let the drapery fall and give us a glimpse of what’s to come on the ASL front. And I must say 2024 is looking to be a bit of an enigma because nothing is slated “to be released” but everything will be going on “pre-order” status instead. So the actual ship dates are unknown. I suspect it might be a case of underpromise and overdeliver, meaning some of this should ship, but they’re not promising anything.

Here’s the 2024 ASL Production Forecast (subject to change, in no particular order, etc):


  1. Doomed Battalions 4th edition pre-order
  2. Roads to Rangoon Action Pack #19 pre-order
  3. The Marco Polo Bridge HASL will go on pre-order (2022, 2023 carryover)
    • Designed by Ken Dunn
    • Chinese vs. Japanese, 1937
  4. Slaughter at Ponyri HASL will go on pre-order (2023 carryover)
  5. Spanish Civil War “package” will go on pre-order (new)
  6. Drop Zone: Chef-du-Pont will go on pre-order (new, follow-on to DZ:SME)
  7. Solitaire ASL reprint will go on pre-order (new)
    • Presumably, this needs to be laid out again from the ground up
  • Note: Contested Lands HASL was removed from the list
    • 1948 Arab-Israeli War
    • Was on the 2023 pre-order list, was removed due to the ongoing situation in the Middle East. Will return at some point.
    • Talk is this will be a “core module”
    • New boards with new terrain
    • Arab/Israeli orders of battle
    • Applicable Chapter H
    • Additional rules for nationalities/terrain
  • Note: Armies of Oblivion reprint was removed from the list


  1. The Marco Polo Bridge HASL will go on pre-order (SK version; 2022, 2023 carryover)
    • This will be a separate version from the full ASL version
    • Chinese vs. Japanese, 1937
    • Will include OBA rules (presumably directly from DAE)
    • Will include night rules, one CG date is played at night
    • Ownership of ASLSK#4 is required
  2. ASLSK magazine will go on pre-order
    • Potential Academy article included in this one. “If…Then…Elst”, a tactical perspective article about the Decision At Elst campaign game. Keep your fingers crossed!
    • Some ASLSK scenarios were submitted as well, but I’m not sure where they’ll end up.

That’s enough ASL to keep you busy for a while. As always … get your wallets ready and pre-order often!!

GET TO THE CHOPPA…!!! Get To The Choppa...!!!

  1. I predict maybe 3 (tops!) of these actually ship in 2024. Probably the Burma AP (guaranteed), the SK magasine (maybe), and Marco Polo since it’s a double dip revenue stream for both ASL and SK.

    The rest will get pushed by mmp again, and again, and again
