MP Musket Era Blood and Iron Age of Imperialism [Version 3.0 released]

Users who are viewing this thread



The 1870's was an exciting time period of the world! The French and the Prussians went to war over German unification. The British Empire was in it's prime. The American Civil War left the US Army in turmoil as regiments were disbanded, and the country pushed West, expanding their boarders and swallowing land. And Japan was struggling with the recent overthrow of the Shogun and the increasing Western influence.

Blood and Iron Age of Imperialism focuses on these five factions and their position during this time period.

The mod developers recommend using Large Address Aware to improve your Warband experience, and to enjoy this mod at its fullest! Simply download the program, run it on warband.exe and select the check box to allow warband.exe to use more than 2GB of memory.

If you downloaded and played the beta, delete your Blood and Iron Age of Imperialism folder, download this release version, and reinstall the mod. This is required to benefit from the optimisation that was done to the mod post beta testing!


  • Completely new uniform models and textures
  • New environment
  • Medics restore health and stop bleeding
  • Quartermasters carry ammunition crates (can be deployed once)
  • Fix, unfix bayonets by pressing B
  • Throw your rifle by pressing N
  • Salute by pressing P, if injured saluting will switch to calling for a medic
  • Whole host of new engineer items to build
  • Breech-loading artillery, plus new field artillery pieces
  • Gatling guns
  • Pistol whipping
  • Samurai
  • And much much more...!

Commander battle is where this mod truly shines! Head over to our official commander battle server and give it a go.

problem solved, thanks :grin:


Whenever I play Blood and Iron, the game keeps crashing when I press b to attach bayonet, and for me atleast, it takes so long to load when playing Blood and Iron, specifically the textures, that it seems the game has crashed. Why is this, and how can I fix this?
