66 3/22/2020 10:43:00 AM Fall 1941 Allied Message and yes the stand fast does not follow the unit around. Its limited to the space.
65 3/22/2020 10:37:00 AM Fall 1941 Allied Message Chris

If a unit has a Stand fast order on them, they CAN move out one of four ways

1. At the cost of 1 VP per space
2. If it is forced to retreat you can move and its free
3. If it advances out of a space after combat and that is free
4. If the first space it enters after exiting is a space devoid of enemy units but that is enemy controlled. That is also free.

Note that if you move a unit into a space that has a stand fast on it, and the unit stops there. Then the next Action Round it is subject to Stand Fast also.

64 3/22/2020 9:43:00 AM Fall 1941 Axis Message Just so I am clear on the stand fast, a unit may not move out without penalty, but may still attack, then advance out. Also, the stand-fast remains in the space and doesn't follow the unit. I will hold until I hear back from you.
63 3/22/2020 9:23:00 AM Fall 1941 Axis Message Ken,
Send the files to me. I have not used VASL for ASL yet. Let me look at it and if you are willing to help with some of the technical issues, I am sure I can help playtest. Is this ASL or ASLSK? Not that it matter much, I have been playing both for years, just not frequently. I am not a master of the game but I do enjoy it. Sat PM or Sunday should work. How about we shoot for next weekend.
Chris
62 3/21/2020 2:48:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message Chris - I could use some help with playtesting if you are up for it. I have vasl map files if you want to.

54 3/21/2020 11:28:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message I just realized who you are. I have been organizing my ASL/ASLSK collection (it is vast and I have all the AH/MMP plus more). I am trying to get it ready to see off the older modules that have been updated and replaced (I always seem to buy, even when I already have the previous version). I saw your name all over the scenarios. I absolutely love the HASL modules. I am more a history guys that uses games to explore the "whys" and "hows" of history. I would love to help out with anything on your new module (playing, proofreading, etc).

40 3/15/2020 7:14:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message I might be available for on line play on Thursday if my choir practice is canceled. So many events are being canceled I wouldn't be surprised. Otherwise I am generally committed to Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Friday and sometimes Saturday with playtests for an ASL module I am designing.

In terms of strategy, I'm not that strong a player but I wouldn't attack a unit with a No Move counter on them as you can probably surround them. Also the Soviet Mech unit is their most important unit at this stage. I would strongly recommend in the future that you consider gifting that unit with a No Move (Stalins orders) counter.

Its what I would do. Of course I rarely win. So take that with a grain of salt!
