Re: SS Flags

I meant to mark the entire thread as solved but by mistake only marked a post in it. There ought to be a benefit for the faction if the faction claims the flag rather than the main force. I remember reading tales of the SS being glory boys who would delay the entire advance simply so that they could...

[SOLVED] Re: SS Flags

Is there much advantage to ensuring that an SS unit captures the flag at a Victory Point? Is it worthwhile avoiding capturing the flag and risking leaving it unoccupied in the hope of later capturing it with an SS unit? On this topic, which is the fastest moving unit available to the SS which can c...

How can we gain more command points? It seems that more only become available when units are destroyed, just sufficient to replace them.

Re: Superb!

Thanks, bebro! Great to hear from one of the Aristocrats.

What is the procedure for finding and then importing the core units from the previous campaign? At the start, it says do you want to use custom units, if you say yes, then what do you do? Where do you find the units you used previously?

Re: Superb!

You should be able to start with Blitzkrieg and import cores into Panzerkrieg, Endsieg and Volkskrieg. Basically you can import into the next campaign. Same thing with the upcoming Soviet trilogy (the second one should be published in 1 qtr-2020). Thanks, Erik2! Are you one of the developers? How i...

It is great having air superiority, isn't it?

What fun to have your bombers wreak havoc whilst your elite fighters immediately destroy any fighters that enter the air! It is most satisfying to then eliminate any anti-aircraft units and fly about with impunity.

Authentic Names for Units

Is there a Mod which allocates historically accurate names to units?

For example, instead of British Heavy Infantry, we could have a unit called the Coldstream Guards.

German Bomber

If you have each of the bombers available to attack a target, which is the best sequence to commence the bombing raid? For example: Heinkel (to destroy digging in) Condor (to inflict damamage and shock) Stuka (to eliminate the unit) Interceptor (if the unit has only one hit point left) There might b...

Re: Superb!

Has anybody actually managed to conquer Moscow in this scenario?
Is there a way to continue with the troops from this campaign into a subsequent campaign?
If you have played this scenario before, do you knowingly make no attempt to seize Moscow and simply dig in at a couple of secondary objectives?

Order of Battle Mods?

Are there any worthwhile Mods for OOB?

Some features that would be nice include an "undo" button. Also, a button to show where the victory points are and their value would be nice.

Re: Slitherine to debut new PC game "Starship Troopers - Terran Command" in 2020

This is delightful news. Well done to Slitherine for taking care of this and thank you to The Aristocrats for development!

The films were great fun, of course, but the original (1959) is a classic in Science-Fiction and well worth the read.

The Secondary Market: Improving Multi-Player

I think many of the multi-player games published by Slitherine, for example Field of Glory II and Empires, could be improved by seeing them as games within a wider game, to see a Primary Game and a Secondary Game. To illustrate what I have in mind, consider stocks and shares. The Primary Market is w...
