Bright, brilliant colors are to be seen everywhere, the stones and pigments undimmed by the passage of decades. The floor of the corridor is a colorful mosaic of stone, with a distinct, winding path of red tiles about 2' wide.

I haven't used it on BSW but I do use it with VASSAL. It has the best sound quality, at least on my PC, and ease of setup of the other programs I've tried (Teamspeak, Ventrilo, etc).

I was taught Paths of Glory over the net via wargameroom.com. Make sure you open your ports on skype to have better quality.

    We use Skype on BSW and DoW all the time, although only once has it been used to teach. I was the student in that case, and it worked quite well. The sound is "sitting in the room with you" quality so as long as you don't need to point to anything you're set. You can attach a web cam to Skype as well which I would be interested to hear results on.
