Yeah I use a USB headset with headphones and Mike works just fine. Was under 20.00 as I recall and its been working for over 2 years. Send me an Email so you will be in my system and install Skype.

Just read your email and sent a reply. I have to set up Skype at my end and learn how it works. Should have the physical components tomorrow and just need to get the audio working on Win 8.1. Some people have been having problems with it. I will PM all of you when I have Skype working on my end.

Regards,
John

Hi,
For the tactical moves F = Fast in any Going - SB = Solid in Bad Going - SG = Solid in Good Going.

Hope this helps...

John

Thanks that F SB SG makes sense now.

I hope you do not have any problems setting up your audio.

Let me know when you are ready. I was hoping you had the rules down but looks like we are both learning. So maybe is best we wait till I have a book on hand So that will put us on next week.

Just for fun the DBM (so there fore multiple DBA armies of) I have painted

Midianite Arab

New Kingdom Egyptian

Assyrian later Sargonid

Lydian

Greek Hoplite

Later Achmenied Persian

Enough stuff to do any Macedonian army

Polyibian Roman

A load of Late Romans so several armies there

Hopefully if we start playing and I learn the rules will inspire me to at least paint up DBA armies from the ton of unpainted stuff I have lying around. I have a regular Saturday games night at my house with 2-4 guys.

I have an unpainted and unbased 15mm DBA 3.0 Pyrrhic Army and a Polybian Roman Army. I guess I will be painting them up in the winter time when it is cooler and basing them. You really have an interesting collection of Armies.
I've deleted the version of Skype that comes with my OS and will install Skype for Windows on my desktop later today. The version that comes with my OS is full screen only.
Next week sounds fine to me I should get the bugs out of Skype by then.

John
