D'ooooooh...this looks good. Good luck!
They're taking inspirations from multiple sources, is all.
Oh God. These screens are beautiful D':
Looks pretty awesome...but what's with those ridiculously tall, round pyramidal helmets?
Will faction alliances only be determined by their respective real-life alliances, or are political/ military ties free to unfold at random? Also, while I'm sure this has been asked...why are important factions like Russia and Prussia included when they technically didn't fight in the War of the Fifth Coalition? Just curious :o
Absolutely gorgeous. I always wanted a little slice of home in M&B.
Nice work! Though those muskets are ridiculously long...how are they even supposed to reload them - let alone steadily hold them - without taking quite a lot of extra time?
It looks pretty nice so far, at least for what it's meant to be. Eager to see how this turns out since I loved the original, despite all its bugs and occasional gameplay awkwardness.
Don't you dare die D: This sounds (and looks) extremely promising. Good luck!
Your recent news post says they're part Prussian as well, though? And I'm just more confused then. The new pictures have the Swadians with red (UK-esque) uniforms, and some of their (current build) in-game ones are Prussian. You can't have the de-facto French faction fielding red-uniformed armies...I mean you -can-...it's your mod and all. But it still looks and seems extremely odd.
Can you give a run-down of all the factions and their intended real life counterparts, then? All I'm saying is that Russia has a lot of material to work with...you really shouldn't need to blend them into the German states when both of them were their own separate and unique entities.
But I thought the new United Provinces already had strong Prussian influences? And the Holy Swadian Empire seems based off of (at least judging by name and some of the uniforms) the later Austrian Empire and other former-HRE German states. Russia is/ was a huge faction, so it doesn't make sense to diversify it more with nations that don't share much similarity or land with it, even if it is just fictional game. Why not make new Cossack/ Polish/ North-western Asian inspired units instead?
Ah, gotcha. And not sure if they were regular or throwing axes, but they seemed to prefer to use them in regular melee rather than throwing them. Out of the Nord troops, I believe those are the only ones that still don't have firearms, yes.
Update: Odd. I tried another battle and the Nord Veterans have MG's now, even though earlier they didn't. Sometimes they'll switch to an axe or just their fists mid-battle though, so I don't know what's going on.
As of the patch, Nord Infantry, Nord Trained Footmen, and Nord Veterans all still don't have any firearms. Also, bayonets are still not useable on the "Hunting Rifle w/ Bayonet." Ammo pouches on them also sit at groin level instead of waist/ hip level.
I also started a new game before checking again just to be sure.
Looking good! Eager to see what all the new uniforms are like.
Two issues I've noticed already...The bayonet on the Hunting Rifle can't actually be used, and some of the Nord soldiers don't have firearms, despite the fact that they might be a veteran soldier.
It's nice of you to post this...I didn't know where any of the ASOIAF-related quests actually were until now! Though admittedly I am a little disappointed you can't interact with the Night's Watch :p
Voted on Greenlight. Sounds/ looks amazing!
What will the battlefield maps be like when you encounter an enemy army in the field, or during a siege? Will the besieged city be war-torn and filled with defensive emplacements, then? And will there be trenches, impact craters, etc when you meet an enemy in the field?
Just wondering...I think these would be great ideas, especially considering that as the world militarily progressed out of the 1800's, battlefields tended to become more and more devastated and ruined.
Who is this, exactly?
I know the Arma2 engine is limited in this sense, but any hope for bayonet/ melee combat that isn't too awful?
By the looks of it, this is my favorite map so far...large, open, but still war-torn and entrenchment-ridden. Hopefully the framerate issues improve in the future, because I tend to have awful FPS despite the fact that I can play larger and newer games on higher settings.
There's definitely pictures of whiter/ lighter Panzers...while the Russians definitely ran with the winter camo biz, specific Panzer units/ individual crews or elite detachments may have gone out of their way to make or acquire their own. Obviously I'm not certain, though.
Still not big enough D: I want to be able to read the prayers inscribed on the individual rounds.
Oooooh, that looks pretty :o In that case, best of luck finding someone! It just wouldn't feel like a complete 40k (Guardsmen) game without gruesome melee and bayonet charges.
Amazing work. Will the lasguns ever have bayonets, though? That's about the only disappointing thing I've noticed so far throughout the images; that only the officers seem to have melee. Or is this simply a limitation of the MoW Engine? I'm not sure since I don't actually own the game right now; all of the mods I'm watching for it have yet to be released. :p
Easiest miniature ever.
