Every so often a game or expansion comes along which just seems to be dead centre in one's range of personal interests. The scale, style, setting and/or concept is exactly what you've been looking for; it's like it was tailored for you.

Recently, the game Canadian Crucible: Brigade Fortress at Norrey matched that description for me to a scary degree, but this Battlepack #6 is not far off the mark either.

So, I just wanted to express my thanks to Andrew Laws, Bryan Collars and Chad Jensen for coming together to make another Combat Commander Battlepack, especially one which is seemingly "exactly what the doctor ordered" in terms of my personal tastes.

Looking forward to it.

For some light (if not tremendously historically accurate) fictional reading on the subject, see "S-Day: A Memoir of the Invasion of England" by James Stewart Thayer. It's engaging and fun, and if you can overlook some minor missteps about units and equipment, well worth the read.

"I play to win, as much or more than any egoist who thinks he's going to win by other means. I want to win the match. But I don't give in to tactical reasoning as the only way to win, rather I believe that efficacy is not divorced from beauty."

I'm pretty excited too. Especially when you think I started the project as a means to teach myself how to use Adobe illustrator. It was only due to the positive reaction of BGGers that I had the idea to pitch the pack to Chad and Gene at GMT.

So thanks everyone for the enthusiasm when it was just a fan project in the forums.

I know hitting 500 still means there's some development and all that, but I still say CC has demonstrated that it could easily be exempted from the P500 process.
