HOLY CRAP, my brother got me Battle Brothers on Steam and it is just KILLER! I LOVE the art style and the game play is really deep. So, I'll be chopping but it'll be heads instead of wood!

Thanks. funny, I was looking at the dates when they first started the thread and that's about when I first saw the game and completely dismissed it as stupid (just like I did with CMBO) and a year or so later here I am. The art really turned me off when I first saw it. I thought the bust look was idiotic. For some reason I caught some game play videos a few months back and man after that I was hooked. Been dying to get it ever since. I am absolutely in love with the art style now. I think this one is gonna be gnawing at me for a long time. I have that same feeling of excitement as I did with CM too. The battles are so visceral and the stories that come out of the game play are just crazy cool. The depth is deceiving.

They just announced a new DLC today! They're gonna be adding a Nordic/Rus inspired faction. I hope they make twenty more, the game is that good. I'd love to see them add Arab and Oriental and/or Samurai style factions later on. The pseudo historical feel and low-fantasy is really a great selling point for me. I am digging the grim, medieval Germanic atmosphere.

For any of you guys that are fans of The Black Company books. THIS is your game!

Mord.

@Mord

I understand you ! I'm a huge fan of Battle Brothers and FOG II too. FoG II is in my top 3 of permanent games (CM too).

FoG will also have a new add-on in a near future (medieval/viking era ?).

I am right there with you! My favorite franchises now are Combat Mission, Field of Glory II (including Pike & Shot and Sengoku Jidai) and Total War. I drug my feet about getting FoG II for over a year but watching lots of YouTube play throughs and reading some in-depth reviews and forum posts finally decided it. I talked to my father the day after my birthday and he asked me what I wanted and I said Steam wallet funds, so I ended up getting some good stuff and FoG II was at the top of the list.

The end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 have been the most excited I've been gaming-wise in years. It pays sometimes to be late to the party.

Yes! I've been checking every day to find out what it's gonna be. I am so enamored with the game I'll be happy no matter what it is. Part of me wants more ancients and part of me wants them to forward the time frame. I am chomping at the bit for the Crusades but that's probably a couple DLCs away, which is fine. I am REALLY hoping they'll add some siege rules at some point, even if they are basic. There's so much they could do to expand the awesomeness. But I haven't even scratched a scratch on a scratch on the tiniest tip of the iceberg so I have plenty to keep me occupied with the base and four DLCs. I am drowning in content and loving it.

Good grief... my dad wouldn't have understood a word and would probably given me a wallop for being sarcastic or summat!  

I see these students using their smart phones to pay at supermarkets now...  

Maybe BF could start an eldercare business/independent living facility where us "more experienced" humans can play CM2 and CM3 and CM4 etc without the new fangled hassles...?

LOL. I wrote that to simplify what took place. I didn't exactly say Steam Wallet to him. I had to explain it. But if you don't know, all a Steam wallet is is an account that you transfer funds into. Same thing that happens when you get a Steam Gift Card or an Amazon Gift card, you load the amount into your user account and whatever you purchase is subtracted from the total.

Field of Glory II is the biggest surprise so far, though it shouldn't have been considering I like Pike & Shot and Sengoku Jidai. That whole rules system is like a more relaxing version of Total War. I have completely fallen for it. They could make DLC for the next ten years and I'd get every bit.

FGM also has a Field of Glory II fanbase as well --> http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/thefgmforum/forums/field-of-glory-ii.447/
