(WIP) The Anglo-Zulu War (Alpha Release 0.04)
« on: December 11, 2012, 03:26:03 AM »
The Anglo-Zulu War
The History
The Anglo–Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. Following a campaign by which Lord Carnarvon had successfully brought about federation in Canada, it was thought that similar combined military and political campaigns might succeed with the various African kingdoms, tribal areas and Boer republics in South Africa. In 1874, Sir Henry Bartle Frere was sent to South Africa as High Commissioner for the British Empire to bring the plans into being. Among the obstacles were the presence of the independent states of the South African Republic and the Kingdom of Zululand and its army. Frere, on his own initiative, without the approval of the British governmen and with the intent of instigating a war with the Zulu, had presented an ultimatum on 11 December 1878, to the Zulu king Cetshwayo with which the Zulu king could not comply. Cetshwayo did not comply and Bartle Frere sent Lord Chelmsford to invade Zululand.The war is notable for several particularly bloody battles, including a stunning opening victory by the Zulu at Isandlwana, and the defiant victory for the British at Rorke's drift, as well as for being a landmark in the timeline of imperialism in the region. The war eventually resulted in a British victory and the end of the Zulu nation's independence.

The Mod
The Anglo Zulu war is a modification for Mount and Blade: Napoleonic wars, which seeks to bring you back to the Anglo Zulu conflict, in true Mount & Blade style. You will be able to play as the British, fighting off hordes of Zulu warriors, or play as the Zulus to drive the British from your homeland. You will use a variety of historical weapons, such as the Martini Henry Rifle, The Beaumont Adams revolver, and Zulu weapons such as clubs, spears and axes. The mod is split between Players Vs Bots and Players Vs Players, with eventual invasion style gamemodes planned for bot gameplay.

Alpha Release

The Anglo Zulu War mod has been released. The current release is still in the Alpha stage, as such you'll notice that much of the mod is unfinished, such as remaining Napoleonic wars content. We hope that people understand this.

This is what I've done so far. It's the Martini Henry Rifle, Mark 2. I need to add the bayonet, fix a few tiny things I'm unhappy with, and then obviously texture it. This is my first serious model and I'm quite proud of it.

I presume Blender?
Yeah, but Russia is gaming the bug that countries with the dismantling treaty modifier can still initiate and participate in crises. No fair. And should they even be in the top 8? They are tenth in economy, fourth in military, but basically zero prestige....

If that's a first serious try...I think I should consider replacing Wings 3D with this  :D
