Just signed up and thought it only polite to say hello and introduce myself after finding my way here through the Combat Mission Site.

Wayback I became engrossed with a PC based game called Eastern Front particularly with its representations of a huge array of historically based engagements and battles from that entire conflict. I then graduated to the Combat Mission Babarossa to Berlin game and played that into PC obsolescence

Since then I have dabbled with Red Thunder but now play almost exclusively Black Sea.

At the moment I am playing the Battle Pack Russian Campaign, the 205th Tactical Group is attempting to take its final objective I have a bridgehead into the left flank objective but the attrition rate from artillery on my infantry squads along with the constant threat of Javelin to my armour has made getting the tempo of the assault a real challenge. I still think despite inflicting some significant losses on the Ukrainian Armour the fire power of the supporting American forces and artillery will eventually blunt my attack as I run out of effective combat power.

Ah well I knew should have fought the preceding stage with a close eye on minimising my losses.

Once I have studied the advice on how to take part in PBEM I am planning to try my hand although I do like the proposition of the Scenario based head to heads being suggested.

Anyway thanks for taking the time to read this and hope to see you on the field of battle.

Thank you all for the warm welcome, when I resolve the difficulties I am experiencing around the CM Helper not recognising the Black Sea Game Engine 4 on my PC I hope indeed to sally forth and enter the fray on those Eastern Steppes.

Greetings @Alien Heat

Gotta agree with @Meat Grinder THAT scene was my 1st thought on seeing your handle :eek: , some serious intimidation there :) (nice one).

Personally I don't do modern stuff in CM (just personal preference, he does do other modern stuff), but hope you enjoy the battles.

See you here and there - wander around the place, try the locked doors, ignore the signs saying private (just be prepared to have your eyeballs burnt out or sanity disrupted - you have been warned). There is a huge number of quite nice people, some REALLY nice people, an AMAZING staff team - Ta for the back hander guys (sigh) - , some very enjoyable discussions on all things and mostly respectful participants. ( @Zinzan, doesn't really fit into any of this).

btw: Refusing to back off can be fatal nowadays (and always) :runner:
