Hi all, been lurking for some time and am super excited to hear about the new release! I haven't played in a while so it will be nice to get back into FH2. The maps and animations look especially awesome.

There is a lot of work going on, but not flashy news update stuff. In fact, not even the testers see most of it. Maybe Gavrant or Remdul want to do a devblog on it at some point, but let's just say there is a large scale technical and graphical rework underway.
Good to hear! Can't wait to see more news.

General Discussion / Status of development?

Hi all,

Hockeywarrior here, reporting for duty, and checking in on wtf is going on. I've noticed that there hasn't been a front page update in many months and that the forums are pretty quiet. Can anyone who is in the know provide an update on FH2's development status? Is work progressing on new versions or has it stopped?

Ah, i see, here all i can find so far is Fiocchi made ammo, nothing else. I don't think i will do much shooting with that revolver with those prices.

Anyway, have a look at my new 1915 made Colt 1903. It has Belgian army proofmarks so its a good guess that this is from the Batch of Colts ordered by the Belgian army in 1915 to arm our officers.

I can not wait to shoot it.


Nice!! I really want a Colt 1908 (the version in .38 acp). They're sexy guns.

Ooh, those are nice, can i ask what the mauser is worth? Also, what do you guys pay for the ammo for the Nagant revolver? i bought a box yesterday and it was 78 euro for 50.
I also recently bought an old Colt pistol, a WW1 Army issue one, super happy with it.
The Mauser is worth somewhere from $500-$600 most likely, given that it is in nearly mint condition, mainly because it sat in a drawer for 70 years after my grandfather brought it home from Europe  ;).

Nagant revolver ammo isn't that expensive here in the states. I'm able to reliably find it for around $25-$30 for a box of 50 of new factory ammo made by Prvi Partizan. It's also pretty easy to find the hotter (and corrosive) Soviet surplus stuff for about 50 cents a round.

I usually stick to shooting the less fun factory ammo out of it though, as for some reason I have a really tough time getting the surplus cases out of the gun  :-\

I've got a new shooting video for you all, featuring my new S&W K-38 Combat Masterpiece, made around 1951. A classic gun and my first "real" revolver -- no offense to my Nagant Revolver hehe.


Comparison with my other pistols:

Nothing like going out to shoot with a couple of friends.

I bought some new things last weekend. After a long time i finally went out to a military event again and did a good find. I got a box for .30 carbine ammunition, the box is empty, but i have the correct ammo at home here so i can fill her up correctly. Also i found 4 m1 carbine magazines. 2 of the first pattern, in wax paper and 2 of the second pattern wrapped in its packaging. Both are new old stock. Also i got a nice 20 rounds Thompson magazine even though it has some slight dents, but hardly noticeable. Knowing that what i paid for it was super cheap i am a very happy boy now.

Maybe relink the image? I can't see anything. And do you own the guns to go with those magazines?  :o

I'm super excited to buy my first "real" revolver next week (not to diss my Nagant revolver or anything lol). Behold: the Smith and Wesson "Combat Masterpiece" aka Model 15 c.a. 1951. I'm buying this baby off of a friend for a really good price. Can't wait :D

A few weeks ago I uploaded a video of me and a couple friends taking a K-31 for a spin! The rifle belongs to my friend and it is an incredibly sweet shooter -- by far the easiest rifle I've had the pleasure to shoot.

The name should have at least some connection to the game, most people including myself probably originally skipped this because they didn't know it was supposed to be a cool WWII shooter. My first thought when I saw this topic was a game about cars with guns or something, and I didn't bother to check until the topic became popular.
Agreed. I understand that they kept the old name because they didn't want to lose their old mod followers, but that was a pretty short-sighted decision. These days, basically no one (including myself) knows about the old mod. I'm glad I discovered Traction Wars through these forums but otherwise, there is no way I would have thought it was a WWII shooter.

It's too late to change it now of course ... I just think it's an unfortunate decision that will hamper the mod's popularity well past its first release.

Booo at 2 years ... how in the world are they financing this project for that long?

And actually that brings up my biggest question about Traction Wars -- how does it plan to make money as a free to play game?

I would gladly pay $20-$30 for a quality WWII FPS ... I see no need to make it F2P. F2P actually makes me less excited because I hate microtransactions.

Hey all. Just a quick post. I picked up an original Gew 98 sling at a local gunshow for my Czech VZ-98. And it only cost me $40, which is a damn good price for them these days.

Finally put some footage together of the VZ-98 in action, paired appropriately with music by a Czech composer!

That's the buckle for the sling.
Right you are! It's an original parade sling ... it actually isn't long enough to reach the furthest swivel point.

Well gents, after 3 weeks of hard work, I present you my refinished CZ-98 rifle.

My goal was to preserve as much character as I could while also cleaning it up and making it look sexier. After 2 weeks of cleaning with mineral spirits and Murphy's soap, plus light steel wool sanding, I applied 6 coats of boiled linseed oil. My goal was 8 coats but I just didn't have the time (and I wanted my kitchen back!). This is the result. I hope it was worth all the work!

More pics:

Woot! Looks great! I'm so happy the Finns will be in the first Eastern Front release.

Any chance we'll see a Finn M91 Mosins in addition to the M39 variants? Those older, pre 91/30 Mosins are so much sexier. I would know since I own one :D
