  1. As observed by @chi-chi, the smart thing is hitting where the other side is weakest... and weakest can be not just a flank, but what Robert Leonhard calls the "center of gravity". In Ancient times, an obvious "center of gravity" usually was the commander of the enemy army. The Persians (and Alexander too!) sought to engage the enemy commander and his entourage as a matter of priority - cut the head off, and the body may run for a couple meters but not much longer. For a study that looks into the eye of the tiger, I think the "Battle Studies" by Colonel Ardant Du Picq https://www.gutenberg.
  2. Back in January, the southeastern Australia fires haze noticeably dimmed the sun as far Christchurch, New Zealand.
  3. Ah, that's one my favourite popular music trivia facts https://bowiesongs.wordpress.com/category/diamond-dogs-1974/ Alan who?
  4. Wow, @combatintman - so this is the whole thing. Really looking forward to try this. I have never bothered with total conversion mods, but this is just too good to pass. I'd love to see CM in Indochina / South East Asia. There's plenty of material to explore (the two Vietnam Wars, the Konfrontasi in Borneo). This maybe the closest we ever get to that. It is a very different type of battlefield (and tactical problems) than what we're used from our European and Middle Eastern haunts.
  5. Wow, looking forward to get bogged down in those paddies!
  6. I saw the pop up yesterday and wondered how this worked. Great to hear that it is as fun as it looked!
  7. Nightlife there looks really rough (see below at the 11:15 mark). Glasgow has a completely undeserved reputation, compared with this place.
  8. It's like Star Trek ships moving at the "speed of plot"
  9. I am playing this scenario at the moment, and I am enjoying it quite a bit. Your plan is pretty much the one I came up with
  10. Thank you, I see that my reading comprehension this morning isn't very good!
  11. Hi there John, I just registered the CMSF1 -> 2 Upgrade bundle as @SgtHatred did. But I only see an entry for the base game, not for the modules. The old CMSF1 keys do not work - my understanding is that those became invalid after getting the bundle. Could you guys check that the bundle keys are correctly pulling along the modules too? I was expecting that specific entries would appear for the NATO, Marines, etc. modules as the Slitherine standard procedure is that you activate on steam separatedly each piece of game.

  12. Thanks @akd for wading into Twitch and coming up with a direct link to Steve & @ChrisND demo session. Very interesting to hear Steve's voiceover (it's good to put a sound to the written word!). As usual, when you listen to a creator talking about their work, there's nuance and a smattering of detail that you don't get from text alone. So I learnt a couple things about CMx2 that I didn't before. I think every fan of these games should watch that demo. What was the feedback and questions from the professional audience like? It is a crowd that, speaking in very general and broad terms, i
  13. Excellent, thanks very much Steve Now we can write a review.
  14. Oookay. I almost fell off the couch when I read about this on The Wargamer and had to check out the Steam page to see it wasn't an elaborate prank. Will you guys be giving Steam keys to those who already have the games? And excited to hear about this, I am positive it will be good for your business!
