Firstly I'd like to say that L'Aigle has become the first Warband mod to reach 1,000 watchers. Thanks for that and all the support.
Now, work on the mod has been a little slow as I've been fairly busy as of late, but work nevertheless continues. Lately I've been working on some pretty cool non-uniform related things which I may be showing in the next update. For now, here are a couple new troops.
First you'll see the Voltigeurs (green plumes, epaulettes and horn shako badges) and Fusiliers (blue plume, shoulder straps and trophy shako plate) of the Duchy of Nassau, a small German state. These troops provide the light infantry force of the armies of the Confederation of the Rhine. These soldiers served in both the Austrian front and in the Peninsular War in 1809, where they saw bloody fighting at Talavera in July.
Next are are the Landwehr of the Austrian Empire. The Landwehr was a conscripted militia force created in 1808 to protect the Austrian border in spite of quite a large opposition among high ranking members of the military staff. The 100,000 or so members the Landwehr mustered in 1809 were usually very poorly equipped (most lacking uniforms and instead wearing civilian coats) and trained, and thus performed quite poorly in the war of that year. They'll provide the Austrian faction with some cheap but poor quality low-tier troops.
That's all for this update. Thanks for reading and thanks to 1,000 of you for watching!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like L'Aigle. We love games like Mount & Blade: Warband that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
