Home Guard mod

Post by UberMoo » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:22 pm

Just wondering if anyone would be able to do a 'What if' Home Guard mod for the game to simulate f the German invasion had been successful?

Hmm... I seem to recall that the British Home Guard had some WWI Stokes-type trench mortars, which had large warheads but very short range. I don't know how to reflect that in the game. Other than that, I figure that it would just be masses of Raw British riflemen versus Regular German Wehrmacht troops...

Let's just be glad that the Germans lost the war.

They used something called a Spigot Mortar which had a range of about 91m. They also used something called a Northover Projector and a Smith Gun.
As well as A.W. bomb which was a bit like a molotov cocktail.

Okay, Wikipedia is our friend here.

Spigot mortar (Blacker Bombard): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blacker_Bombard.

A.W. Bomb: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No._76_Spe ... ry_Grenade.

Northover Projector: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northover_Projector

Smith Gun: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smith_gun.

Home Guard troops would normally be Raw, but a few WWI vets might be Regular or even Elite.

Hi buddy, I'm just wondering, were you able to find a way for this yet?
You're never a loser until you quit trying. Image
