There are lots and lots of gameplay videos on youtube, as well as some reviews out there, e.g.

http://kriegsimulation.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/strategic-command-wwii-war-in-europe.html

This is from a pre-release version, we've made a lot of improvements since based on player feedback!  :)

There's currently an After Action Report underway using a mod designed by crispy131313 that's worth taking a look at, as its designer has been challenged to a PBEM game:

Space Hulk : Deathwing - I've been immersed in the Horus Heresy series the last couple of months thanks to the Humble Book Bundle a few months back, hoping Deathwing will do WH40 justice despite some iffy reviews

If you are a true servant of the Emperor, you will love it.

You're right, first impressions are really good, pretty cool to see WH40k lore come to life in first person as I walk through the gothic ships in my terminator armor exterminating xenos.

I really enjoyed the first big zone in TSW. 

The modern horror mythology & such was great.

But I started losing interest a ways into the second area.  Kept hearing that the later zones weren't as good as the first two, but never made it that far.

What made me lose some interest was how weak my characters started feeling in combat, the further I went.  Like I was hitting baddies but barely scratching them, while they were pummeling the snot out of me.  Eventually every little random fight was as likely to end in death as not.  My damage output didn't seem to go up much at all, but the mobs' did.  :-\

That said, I'd still like to go back & grok the new revised one.  The modern horror-fantasy setting is damn cool.

I would love to give it a go - but I am very rusty on on the game rules and - moreover - I don't know the interface yet. So this weekend may not be a good start for me. But I'd look to at least get the interface downpat sometime and get an online gaming session going.


All you gotta do is learn the Tabletop Simulator interface/commands.  I can teach the aforementioned games to you guys (it looks to have built-in voice, but there's always Teamspeak too).

TTS even has a tutorial that will run you through the basics of manipulating game pieces, cards, dice, etc.  Also has a good little key command Help window using " / " key.

I toyed around in the Warfighter module for a bit, after doing the tutorial.  Figured out enough to play it.


I also have these other modules in it, and own the boxed versions of them too:

Zombicide
Xia: Legends of a Drift System

Xia is the only one I haven't got around to playing the physical version yet.  So it would require a longer notice, beforehand, to digest the rules again.  But it's a sandbox type of game which tends toward longer sessions anyway, so no hurry.  But Warfighter, Zombicide, and Darkest Night aren't all that difficult and I remember most of the rules to all of those from playing a few times. 

They're all Co-Op against the game system (minus Xia), so you're not gonna get smeared by someone who's played it more than you.  You'll get smeared by the automated opponent.   ^-^

It does look good but they still  have over $40K to go and only three days to do it. Iffy...

Does it still have division spam?  Didn't they implement manpower limits like in HOI3?  It's $20 for base game right now which is more than I want to spend on it.
