ASL Boot Camp #23: Close Combat
Close combat is one of the best ways to eliminate enemy units and capture hexes/locations. But as a high-risk, high-reward tactic it can come at a hefty price. Some players hate close combat, while others love it. I'm in the latter group ... because used judiciously, at the right time, with the right units it can pay dividends on the battlefield.
ASL Tactical Tip #6 – Assault Fire
This ASL Tactical Tip is to remind both ASL and ASLSK players to use their unit's Assault Fire capability if they possess it!! Especially when squads possessing 5 FP and Assault Fire are in play. It's a very powerful, but simple, mechanic that can help attacking (assaulting) units quite a bit!!

ASL Tactical Tip #2 – Rout Order & No Quarter
Sometimes the order in which you rout your units matters greatly, especially if No Quarter has or hasn't been declared. Most of what's discussed here doesn't apply to Starter Kit this time, as No Quarter and Prisoner rules don't exist in that system.
