The added Russians.  Note the new format that LNLP is using for their counters - all of them are punched individually.  Very Euro-gamish!

It’s a great package, as long as you’re completely immersed in the LNLP family of games.  There are AARs, scenarios, house rules, expansions, and articles galore – for LNLP’s games.  There’s nary a mention of anything not published by them, which is what you’d expect for a house magazine.

Is it worth it?  It’s totally worth it if you’re a fan of the Lock’n’Load squad-level system.  If you’re a fan of World at War, or a completist, then you’ll need it for the A/1-4 CAV guys.  Otherwise, you’re not going to find a ton in here that you have to have.  But if you’re going to get it, it’s a gorgeous package that only hints at where LNLP hopes to be heading in production values.
