Hello recently I've spoken about my excitement regarding a tactical wargame development.

Below are links to FB page and YouTube channel. Most stuff on FB with a lot more to come.

nice also as it seems it's multi level building, which will or could add a new dimension

Ok, after watching the videos, subscribing to the channel and following it over to Facebook, I'm making a choice.

I'm jumping ship on Steel Tigers.

Here's to whoever is in charge of Steel Tigers, your silence, likely has lost my interest.

Yeah, Second Front is new to the point of VERY new, but in just a couple of videos, this ASL expert (yes, I am an ASL expert), can assure you, your Steel Tigers will be lucky to compete with Second Front to get the Squad Leader/Advanced Squad Leader look alike award.

I'm sold on this product. I'm watching this product. I'm also likely going to stop following this no-one-is-talking-about-it wargame (Steel Tigers).

For any wishing to use the word 'cartoony' in any fashion to describe Second Front, keep in mind, Battle Academy has sold a lot of DLCs and spawned Battle Academy 2 and more DLC. I don't think 'cartoony' is a death sentence.

I'm just going to keep on playing Steel Panthers until I have something better. It might be Second Front.
I have Tigers on the Hunt. Not to sold on the interface. It's as approachable as the ASL manual. That's not a compliment.

I will have to say after watching the 3 in the village that this does seem impressive. It still has a long way to go to be ASL. I did not notice any SAN, no LATW, no Ordinance, and no AFVs nor any OBA. Where's the Russians?

As long as they don't add Germany Turns East to the end of it, they will be okay.

I have to admit putting most of my 30+ years of game time into Steel Panthers and its upgrades, like SP MBT, etc. What I'm really looking for is a great wargame, a worthy successor to SP. I'll buy this game of course, but it is the ASL crowd that will really get excited about it.

To me, it looks like Battle Academy 2 and Heroes of Stalingrad had a baby - a beautiful one! But not being an ASL person, I can't get too excited. Until I see the editor.

Yeah, I'd probably be interested if there is a decent editor and they expand the game to cover the First Front.

Has map editor. I believe so far Germans, Russians, USA and Commonwealth.

I have high hopes this game wIll have everything a tactical wargame should have. Finally no missing feature here and there.

Yes it's still early development currently he has just fixed loading and unloading transport. He is now moving on to adding MGs and there varieties. I'm sure for such early development we all can see something special in the making.

As for cartoony visuals, I really love the look. It works for me!

Apparently Stalingrad factory battles will be able to be replicated! Hurrah!

I also believe it may go to Kickstarter later down the line. So I hope all interested will go onto back it! I certainly will be doing. I'm behind anyone who is developing a decent looking tactical wargame.

Video showing Close Combat will be released today.

Editor vids next week! Will have two editors a map one and a scenario one!

Seems to have everything we've been asking for!

All nations have equipment covering 39 to 45

I was mistaken though first release just Germans, Russians and USA

So no Poland, France, low countries, Finland, Italy, and/or UK? So until Germany attacks the Soviet Union (Russia) then the Germans just play with themselves?
