Sorry Arjuna.....I thought perhaps you might respond this way......Just thought some would find it interesting and give them some gaming inspiration.....A while back I found a site for miniatures wargaming and tried to register only to find that it had been taken over by bots......I may put the photos up for viewing where you have suggested....I am pretty well fed up with the cyber world and have mostly gone back to the old ways of wargaming.....I do like BFTB ,,,my favorite computer wargame.....I also like that you do not have to have internet service to use the game.....I have many games that are useless right now because I have no internet service...Once again I apologize for posting material not related to the Command Ops series...

Man, I agree with this sentiment completely. Any chance you are near Pittsburg for some over the board wargaming?
I play BFTB and a few others like TOAW. I have little to no interest in playing over the net. I see this as an abandonment of many companies to develop really good AI because they can now let players bash each other. I have done a few online games and for the most part, *if* you can find a good group (like for serious flight sims) where you don't have a bunch of immature people blah, blah, blah... it might be worth it.
I want to be made to think. I want depth and richness. I want to learn, not just be entertained. Pretty graphics don't mean anything if my brain isn't engaged. I guess that is why, time and again, I return to playing chess. 2,500+ year old, still is hands down the best abstract wargame in the world. Only a few other games can boast this longevity - Backgammon (about the same time and it is really interesting to read how two major divisions in philosophy used Chess and Backgammon in arguing rational thought and logic vs fate and the random nature of god) Go and the Japanese version of Chess. Played continually by mankind for over 2,000 years. Pretty amazing and the graphics haven't changed that much....;)
