Ditto to the above comment. I played CM way back when it was originally launched but the prices have kept me from upgrading to the latest version.

Just bought Richard III in the Steam summer sale. My playthrough of that title may well lead me to buy this one too.

I would add that there are already several relatively new multiplayer WWII shooters, Post Scriptum and Hell Let Loose. PS approaches the Arma side of the scale.

<t>Now for the update on the Contrast paint craze. Talk about expensive paint. <br/> <br/> Personally I still use a lot of craft paints like Apple Barrel or American Tradition, along side Vallejo, etc. The price can't be beat, less than 1 USD for twice the paint.

<t>I have played Osprey's Fighting Sail using TTS and once you get the hang of how to move miniatures and measurement devices it works very well. <br/> <br/> I did get my KS O&I set plus more at Cold Wars, so I am busy painting the ships for future face to face games. They did a great job with t...

<t>I signed up for an account and got the first round of books no problem. On the second round I mistakenly went to the UK shop and it rejected my order stating my account was US based. Since that time I have been unable to log in. I suspect clearing my browser cache may fix this though. I did note ...
