Introduction:

This updated version of HOLLOW LEGIONS includes the complete contents of the original (the entire Italian order of battle and Italian Chapter H—now updated, two desert boards, and eight scenarios), plus all the scenarios, boards, rules, and Desert parts from the now-superseded WEST OF ALAMEIN, plus Soldiers of the Negus, and 29 out-of-print scenarios.
Additionally, HOLLOW LEGIONS now includes the rules and scenarios from Soldiers of the Negus, originally published by our friends at ELR that expands the Italian theater to East Africa and the Second Italo-Ethiopian War of 1935-36. This was Mussolini's war of aggression to conquer Ethiopia (Abyssinia) from Emperor Haile Selassie's largely tribal armies and is widely seen as a precursor to WWII. A full complement of counters for both Ethiopian and Eritrean (allied with Italy) forces is included.
In total, HOLLOW LEGIONS includes a whopping 53 scenarios:
The original 8 scenarios from WEST OF ALAMEIN and the original 8 scenarios from HOLLOW LEGIONS;
21 scenarios from various out-of-print publications (such as the ASL JOURNAL, ASL ANNUAL, and The GENERAL) that feature either Italians or Desert actions (and sometimes both), including the mini-campaign Line In The Sand;
All eight scenarios from Action Pack 3, which featured the Italians.
Eight scenarios from Soldiers of the Negus.
