Isn't this a direct competitor to CA? Battalion sized, 12 hr turns, HQ effects? Matrix, don't force me to choose!

Of course, if I was a conspiracy theorist I'd say that CA was delayed to let this one out and the delayed again long enough to make me buy both. But I'm not, so I won't.

Battlefront and Combined arms are developed by 2 different groups, so i doubt that one have delayed the other.

Also combined arms is WEGO as opposed to Battlefront being IGO-UGO.
I have the distinct impression both will be very different.

...if the former is ever released. This might help to get the lead out.

Cheers, Neilster

Yeah, CA won't be out for many months it seems and the WEGO system will make planning and execution of combat much different; something I have always missed with the DB games.

I'm looking forward to this game very much.

As for CA, it is a bit different...

Anyone needing scenarios???

PS I will buy both as battalion level is my favourite level to play at.

At the risk of fanning flames--which I don't want to do--I'd say this is SSG's entry into the level usually occupied by Tiller's Panzer Campaigns games. I can't wait to try it out!

Hi,

I have to admit that my favourite wargame scale is the Squad Leader, Combat Mission, Panzer Commander scale .

However, when it comes to operational games, I agree with others here that the battalion and one km/mile to the hex is my favoured scale of game.

All sounds good. (I just have the odd reservation about direct fire combat in operational games, I tend to view that they do not mix, but time will tell.)

All the best,
Kip.

I play a lot of Panzer Campaign PBEM & like the scale. I'm interested in SSG's Battlefront for that reason. The more choices the better I say!

Are there any screen shots of all four maps that will ship with BF?
(Saipan, Market Garden, Gazala and Novorossik)

Novorossik is the one I have the least knowledge of.  Any good links to the story of this battle?
