That is a cool video.  Very "Band of Brothers", which is, I assume, the vibe you're going for?

Yes, we are trying to hit that vibe.  Thank you for the complement.  We appreciate it.  This week's video is here:

Below is the link to the latest "History Sunday".  Although this feature will continue, we are putting it on hiatus for awhile, as we focus on adding new content into the game.

While I'm certainly enjoying the videos, I think I'd rather you spent your energies on perfecting the game.

Oh well in all fairness it's not really the same people... Different jobs, especially with a team as diverse & competent as theirs :coolsmiley:
I know I feel guilty everytime I ask a screen to my Lead Dev but in all honesty the work we do narrative or PR-wise doesn't impact much development, if at all.
Clearly the team had a new map ready and they were looking for a good way to introduce it in a historical context.

Hey Philippe and The_Admiral,

 Shockingly you are both right ;-)  We do have a distinct historical media team run by Steve Lohr. On the other hand, one of my many hats as team lead, I also play video editor LOL. So was sucking time away from coding.
 
 Further the historical media team is responsible for *in game* historical media and since everyone's real life time has gotten busier on that team, really want their limited volunteer hours going to the game's historical media now.

  Luke (lead)

p.s. coming down with Flu quite possibly so sorry if more incoherent than normal here ;-)

Paging any Grogheads who are interested in participating in making Burden of Command:

Our expert photo editor @EricBenjamin59  could use some help with photo editing (we have a lot of historical pictures in the game!).  If interested and selected, you will get a chance to hone your photo editing skills and see your work in Burden of Command.  See the image below for details on this volunteer position:

That was quite a peek. Why do I sense we're at least a year away.
You are 40% correct so far.

Any news on this? Does Burden of Command have some weird contest with Second Front as to who can release last?

No complaints, just another hope that things are going okay in moving along (even if sporadically)!  O:-)
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

JP, I just saw this.  The BoC team is still hard at work.  A lot of our updates are being put out in "micro-development" posts on Twitter and Youtube.  Here's a link to the Youtube channel which features the micro development blogs: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6D1rHMFvqsVM1ICFVQFXOA

I have looked at all the videos on you tube and I really like the approach. I like the black and white photos for unit identity and the actual soldier sprites, but I don't care for the landscape and building art. It seems very cartoon like.
