The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own. Aldous Huxley

That release date is most welcome news

The play through looks good too.

Nice, I didn't expect it so soon. Sweet.

I loved Pike and Shot, I am definitely on board for this.

I love the look of this game. But cannot get over the units taking turns standing their and getting the crap beaten out of each other for no response.

WEGO, the next step.
I would love for this to be WEGO. However unlike most WEGO the next evolution for WEGO to be implimented here would be WEGO with contingency orders for reacting during the 1 minute of real time.

After all these years I am still waiting to see a game that actually simulates real formations in 3D. Funnily enough Total War for all of it's arcade like features and lack of historical care comes closest still to a real ancient battle! Combat Mission and Scourge of War (interface breaks that game) come closest in other theatres.

FOG still has micro BORG managed units. No communication simulation as far as I can tell either.

It's not meant to be a full simulation. A lot abstraction still with table top feel. But die rolls are not six sided anymore.

Been enjoying Das Tactic's plays. Seems like several youtubers have overrun on time due the 'one more turn' feel

Looks like this is going to be gem.

I'm beginning to fear seeing the price.

Although some of the others, based on the same engine, were fairly reasonable IIRC.

$40, Matrix standard, would be my guess.
