The Totenkopf (Death's Head or simply skull and crossbones in German) has been in use in some Prussian/ German military units of their days since Frederick the Great. Its use isn't exactly unique, since lots of units from militaries from around the globe - regular and irregular, Revolutionary-era to modern day - have used and still use it. The biggest difference when it comes to Germany is that the symbol has become synonymous with the SS, Einsatzgruppen, and other more strongly Nazi-tied sections of the German military leading up to and during WWII, since they were pretty fond of it.
The Freikorps during the post-WWI time was kind of a mix; at times they acted as militia and peacekeepers, sometimes soldiers participating in nearby (former German Empire territory) conflicts, and many towards the end came to be absorbed into the Nazi party and its associated paramilitary factions.
Ooooh, loving the setting and atmosphere! Good luck! :)
Modernized scenes...does that (or at some point will it) include more modern battlefield scenes? I know it's a lot to ask and a lot of work to do, but it'd be great to see some ruins, trenches, field fortifications, etc on the map battlefields and not just the siege scenes...or maybe there could be a trigger to only have said battlefield scenes appear when the battles have a large amount of soldiers on each side, simulating a longer, fiercer, and more drawn-out battle. That way you wouldn't see such war-torn scenes so often, or for small skirmishes where both sides wouldn't dig in anyways.
Ah, I remember watching the show as a kid. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. Good luck and looking good so far!
That's a damn fine view.
Very promising! It sounds and looks quite compelling and detailed. Good luck!
Happened to me too for a second but worked after another attempt. Not sure?
"The Emperor working at the enormous amount of administrative responsibilities he placed upon himself."
I don't think I've ever seen a person work harder
Definitely one of the best-looking suits of power armour thus far.
Though...that power fist could definitely be a bit bigger- and smashier-lookin'
I guess the news is true, after all...
Was good while it lasted. Rest in piece and good luck to the team members in the future.
Darn, I wish we could have seen more...some close-quarters bayonet-play in the wheat would have been awesome. Nice work!
Obviously Allied forces used flamethrowers on the Western front, but not to the same extent as in the Pacific Theatre. The Japanese made use of bunkers, pillboxes, tunnel complexes, and other hard, static defenses much more than the Germans did, which is where the flamethrower really shined. Flamethrowers are not optimal for more fluid fronts.
Great work! I hate that they repeat that line so often in-game, though...
It's super effective?
This sucks, but I'm sure the dev/ devs made the right decision if they have important RL issues. Good luck in the future!
Darn, I was really hoping Great War would win. Either way, congrats to all the participants and winners!
Lovely screens. Nice work!
I would assume not - they're completely different games.
Pretty sure it's just the K98. The Romanians often used the Mannlicher M1895 I believe, but they used a lot of Mausers and Vz.24's as well.
This looks gorgeous. Good luck and good release, if it really is coming out in the next few days.
Why the downvotes? It's a reference to Fred the Farmer (the uber-zombie) from the original mod.
Fred's a ****.
Edit: Nevermind, spoke too soon! Automatic fire is indeed in. Maybe that model is semi-automatic only? And just in case no one else mentioned it...are bayonets supposed to only have like a foot-long reach in front of you?
Unless the team changed something, automatic fire in the majority of Warband mods is not possible.
Also to the Dev team: My Swazi Grenadiers always seem to switch to fists when it comes to melee, despite the fact that (I think) they all have bayonets on their rifles. On top of that, the Nordic snipers don't seem to have anything other than fists for melee either. A knife or something would be nice, especially since hunting knives were popular with Finnish troops.
Oh no no, I haven't played it through MoH: BR yet. I was playing the original retail version.
Will you be allowing for more enemy weapon/ ammo drops in Breakthrough? Purely by coincidence I was replaying all the games, and the later levels of Breakthrough are particularly frustrating due the immense scarcity of ammo pickups, both from boxes spawned for the map and enemy drops. I realize it's supposed to make the game tougher, but in all honesty it's just irritating; the game-play being broken up by constant saving is really annoying by itself, too.
Agreed; if you're going to include a swastika, it should just be a smaller one under the eagle, like the actual 3rd Reich coat of arms. Just having a big-arse swastika on a flag is simply gaudy and tacky.
Will bayonets be a separate item and not useable while attached to rifles? Sorry if this has been answered already!
Agreed; could use some dirt and grime....maybe some blood :p
