-Below is material subject to modification.

The below graphic links will be added as I get to their new pages ( it came to my attention that I had dropped the html files from where I had had them hosted before). I'll spruce up the graphics a little as things go along ( these, at the moment have been reused from the website with some corresponding background material that needs to go).

-Working on the Naval Campaigns page at the site - but since I had the banner ready- figured to add it in here (and then edit in the link later on.)._______________________

Hello all, I am new to HPS games and have France 40 and Kursk 43 as well as Proud and the few but I am really focusing on Panzer Campaigns. Looking for opponents so hit me up if you want to play (

Also a lot of the links on the opponent finder website are now dead

Posted this on the HPS Folder on the main site, but may as well do it here too:

CSR Ballots were announced on the front page. If you are in an HPS frame of mind you can copy/paste this onto your ballot in the appropriate section.

Is it possible to get notified when new content is added here?

Sorry - I just sent a broadcast message to the group. In any case, I wanted to publicize the fact GameSquad is getting ready to kick off a tourney for Winter War (Squad Battles).

Players will be seeded by their ranking at GameSquad, so you will be paired with similarly skilled/experienced players in the first round.

Again, sorry about the broadcast message
