We aren't yet actually at the "40 to 1" battle Sabaton has sung about -- and at this rate we may never be!  :o

Partly this is due to the scenario / campaign developers deciding that Guderian's 19th corps (including Rommel) should be plopped somewhere completely unable to get to Wisna (and that the 10th Panzer Division should not even be part of Guderian's command -- but still nowhere near the historical action). So I'm stuck trying to advance on that area with a couple of reserve divisions, against a shockingly large number of Polish defenders -- whom Barth has decided to advance against my weak far-east wing, threatening to overrun and/or pocket them out of existence.

But partly this is due to Barth playing the Polish for all they're worth, under the circumstances. See: advancing local troops around Wisnia (or Viznia or however it's spelled in non-cyrillic), up to threaten my far east wing and thus, by extension, my whole East Prussian campaign.

Consequently I feel like if I'm going to reference that battle by referencing that song, I had better start doing so now! -- except I'm going to use an 8-bit version on a non-monetized video and so hopefully avoid a content strike. (Plus on the Youtube page itself I'm giving links to where to find the music, both Epic-NES-metal's covers and the original Sabaton album, as well as the official YT channel for Sabaton's publishers.)

Also, Ugniavijas returns with another song promoting their other album (which I might have accidentally mixed up, but really anyone who likes the music should get both).

Enough attributioning. To Turn Two!

Kaz from Ugniavijas is so happy with the video (he hasn't seen Two yet but I've sent him the link tonight) that he sent me the band's logo to officially use in the credits!

Barth certainly plays much more aggressively than the AI does. I prefer it in a nice, predictable, retreating back to it's cities form. It's weird that you can't use RR movement more. Something I've never ran into before. Maybe it's an MP-thing?
"Take a look at that". Sgt. Wilkerson-- CMBN. His last words after spotting a German tank on the other side of a hedgerow.

Yeah, I'll be looking into that RR-movement problem more closely for Turn 4. Still couldn't for Turn 3 (and I need to shift some extra force eastward in East Prussia pronto, so not having it is a bit of a pain), but neither did I systematically investigate why not either -- mainly because I was already in the turn and recording footage.

Barth has sent back his Turn 3 last week already, but due to a developing spring-allergy cold (and Eastery things, and taxes) I've only been picking away at things I can put down quickly (like practicing skirmish in Steel Divisions). I'm finally on the back side of the cold and was preparing to work on finishing Ep 3 and then playing Turn 4 this weekend...

...but with a death in my brother's family (wife's mother) this morning, I'm likely to be delayed longer. Not too much, I hope, but maybe another week. I just didn't want readers (viewers!) to worry I had given up already. ;)

Barth knows about the delay from the head-cold already, and I'll be passing along probable-delay news to him soon so he'll be caught up on the situation.

Meanwhile, if you want hints about what's going to happen, feel free to buy a copy of CRY OF JUSTICE. It won't give you any hints, but it may distract you from wanting hints for a while!  >:D (Also, that way I can poke fun at my Amazon ranking during the introduction in new ways.  O0 )
