Festung Budapest, the eighth Historical ASL module, takes players to the western side of the Hungarian capital. Seventeen scenarios and three Campaign Games cover the fighting on the Buda side of the Danube just west of the Castle Hill area during the period from 1 January through 10 February while representing the bitter struggle for the heart of the city.
Festung Budapest also comes with 4 maps and 9 counter sheets. In addition to the entire German SS?MMC order of battle (from 8-3-8 to 4-4-7 and including assault engineers), counters are provided for several new types of Hungarian infantry — SMG units, assault engineers, the fascist Arrow Cross Militia, and the anti-communist Vannay Battalion — as well as the Buda Volunteer Regiment, Hungarians fighting for the Russians. Counters are also provided for both Hungarian and Russian air support.
Requires ASL Rulebook and Beyond Valor. Some scenarios and one of the campaign games use some items from Armies of Oblivion.
