ASL Starter Series. The Beginning.

Your entry into the Advanced Squad leader hobby starts with the starter Kit series from Multiman  Publishing.

Starter Kit 1

Starter Kit 1 introduces the basics of infantry movement and combat which forms the basis for the entire game.¬† After you have played all the scenarios in this gem you will have the basics down and can move on to started kits 2 and 3. This kit contains everything you need to play the scenarios provided. In all fairness you don’t need starter kit 1 to enter the Advanced Squad leader world but it is a strong cornerstone. At this point in time Starter Kit 1 is out of print and is only available from third party providers which is why the price is elevated. We do not have them in stock and have no reprint information which is why we are providing the link below.
