    Got back into mount and blade warband recently. Remembered How much fun it was. Anyone else have any action games that had a little rts focus that they liked. Also anyone know of any games other than m and that allow you to control troop in a way similar to m and b?

    XCOM Enemy Unknown?
    Dawn of War II?

    both these games have less emphasis on base building.

    look for Steam sales.

    Dawn of War II series (which I loved), reminded me a little of the Dungeon Siege 1 & 2 (3 was not so great, and is completely different). It's not action RTS as such, but you've got a party of 4+ people to micromanage the whole way through the campaign, similar to DoW II, only the item system is a little more indepth.
    There's also the Heart of the Swarm campaign.

    Check out the Wargame and World in Conflict series for some great A-RTS action too. I have M&B and Warband..but never played em.... Maybe total war series might be a good choice step for you?

    I don't like RTS games mainly because I don't have a strategy just brute force xD. But the one I played and enjoyed was Company of Heroes.
