Blood and Iron is a major overhaul mod for Victoria 2: Heart of Darkness. It's based on NNM and includes various reworked elements from other mods or minimods such as Vickymod, PDM etc. The main focus is on fixing, improving and balancing the game and expanding it with more gameplay mechanics, as well as to make the game more historical and realistic by adding more major and important historical events and nations in a way that it doesn't become too bloated and railroaded, as it also focuses on what-if scenarios and alternate outcomes if the player decides to follow a different path, and to make every country interesting and fun to play by adding more flavor events.

Introducing a new land unit from the next beta version.

Posted by on

The main feature of this update is a new infantry type, the Stormtrooper. From what I can tell Guards meant to represent elite units (including stormtroopers) in vanilla, they have more attack but less defense compared to Infantry, in the mod however they were a straight upgrade to Infantry.

With the addition of Stormtroopers, Guards are now strictly defensive units, with less attack and speed, but with more defense compared to Infantry, while Stormtroopers are the exact opposite: more attack and speed but less defense. The new unit is tied to Stormtrooper Training, to invent it you need to research Infiltration.

I focused a little bit on the Middle East. Some religious compositions were fixed, added a few new tags for the Alawites and Druze, and a couple of organization decisions for GPs to create new states for the local Christians. I didn't have time to add the events I planned there, those will be in the next update.

Organize Christian states in the Middle East

The terrain has been improved in a few places, and changed some province shapes too. The most notable changes are near the Meuse. I added some decisions to partition those regions, something the fans of Kaiserreich will surely appreciate.

Nice!

But wasn't it rather a organisatorial subdivision and more of a platoon than a whole regiment? "StoƟtruppen" consisted of around 20 soldiers
Also, there is already infiltration tactics in the last tech of the first army tech tree, which is the stormtrooper tactic of clearing out houses and fortified positions
