PROVING GROUNDS AND SCENARIO DEPOT UPDATED

With summer upon us and the site spring clean having overlooked The Scenario Depot and The Proving Grounds I’ve been able to invest about 5 hours into the 2 aforementioned sites giving them a damn good polish.  To say they have been neglected is a tad harsh but they haven’t been dusted down too often.  However with the Shock Force 2 game over the horizon and approaching it became imperative that these places were ready for action as new releases […]

VEGA FORCE SCENARIO FOR BLACK SEA

This scenario is called Vega Force and it has been designed by Heirloom_Tomato in response to requests for Black Sea to have more small scenarios.  Something which I echo myself.  I always feel with smaller scenarios I know exactly what I expect everyone to do and to be able to control them intricately, something which you lose when getting involved in bigger battles.  Go and give it a download, link is below and please do provide feedback as the designers […]

COMBAT MISSION FLAME MOD FOR ALL VERSIONS!

New modification released over at CMMODS by 3J2M7.  It is compatible with all versions of CM and is actually quite good.  I installed it and took it for a test drive in Final Blitzkrieg and it worked well.  Sounded great and the fire graphics are quite good too.  Pop over to CMMODSIII via the link below to give this a download and be sure to leave some feedback as it is what modders thrive on. 8 Mod Flames for all […]

PANZER CORPS 2 DEVELOPMENT DIARY RELEASED

Hi Guys Today I received an email from Paolo over at Slitherine with some news about the upcoming game Panzer Corps 2 that is in development.  A lot of us here played Panzer Corps and its DLC packs over the years and it was defined as one of the go to ‘beer and pretzel’ games amongst our ranks.  The news that PC2 was in development is no secret but we now have a couple of screenshots to drool over.  They […]

FGM QUESTION OF THE DAY MAKES A COMEBACK

A while back I started a series on the Few Good Men YouTube channel called Question of the Day where we pose you a question and basically put it out for discussion.  There are no right or wrong answers as we basically use it as a vehicle to get folk talking about the topic we are all interested in… military history.  Ithikial has been giving me some support and has reignited the series so be sure to have a look […]

AFGHANISTAN PORTRAIT MOD

I have no idea why we are having a sudden influx of CM Afghanistan modifications but Im happy they are happening.  This latest mod has been released by Schnellemeyer and replaces all the stock unit portraits with new images.  A small but satisfying modification that is aesthetically pleasing on the eye.  Find the link to CMMODSIII below. CMA portrait mod  

AFGHANISTAN EARLY SOVIET SPEC OPS UNIFORM MOD

Over at CMMODSIII Oleksandr has released a new modification for the Soviet Special Forces who took part in the Soviet Afghan War.  As mentioned before there are not a lot of mod makers out there even touching CM Afghanistan these days so its great to have Oleksandr keeping the content coming out.  If you have the game please do support Oleksandr and download these mods and use them as they are definitely an improvement over the stock graphics.   CMA: […]

WHAT DID THE SOUTH AFRICANS DO IN WW2?

You can name the US divisions who landed on the shores of Normandy, you can recall the Canadian units who fought at Falaise, you know the OOB for the British at Arnhem and the bravery of the Polish at Monte Cassino but can you tell us about the part that South African forces played in the Second World War. One of our members Panzer Kraut has set out to right the wrong of the forgotten army who fought alongside the […]

FGM LOOKING FOR CONTRIBUTORS

Guys as I like to say this isn’t my site, its our site. I want to make it our community.  I want it to grow.  I want it to be somewhere we all can interact and put some work in to make it more dynamic, to make it appeal to others.  We have a great site here and it would be rude not to use the space it takes up on the internet to showcase the skills our members have. […]

CM SCREENSHOT OF THE MONTH COMPETITION

Guys, grab your cameras because the CM Screenshot of the Month competition is back.  Several years ago this was a common fixture at the FGM but it faded away.  Well now its back!!  I’ve dusted down an area for it in the Screenshots and After Action Reports section (its stickied at the top) so feel free to post screenies of your latest masterpieces.  Multiple pictures can be submitted but none can be submitted as a set… so individual pictures only. […]

OLEKSANDRS BMP-2 PACK FOR CM AFGHANISTAN

This evening Oleksandr the most active mod creator at present for Combat Mission has released his BMP-2 pack for CM Afghanistan.  It is a game I have and I know a few of you guys out there have it too although it does appear to be the black sheep of the CM family.  I play it for a nice change in pace and it lies nicely between WW2 and the modern era. This mod is really nice and in all […]

BLACK SEA BROTHER VS BROTHER QUARTER FINAL SET UP

Hi Guys, despite a ridiculously long wait we have final got round to setting up the parameters for the Quarter final for our CMBS tournament Brother vs Brother which pits Pro-Russian Ukrainians fighting against Government backed Ukrainians.  The battles are small and last under an hour so it is really imperative you get locked into combat and do as much damage as you possibly can before the bell rings to signify the end of the battle. The tournament board so […]
