If we do include the Scots, we would need more than one model. Probably around 4 different variations, though they would be pretty similar to each other.they are nice... but wont let me register to th DH forumz and i had a suggestion for IE.
i would like to see what the ww1 German soldier called "girls from hell" or "angry ladies" In other words i would like to see Scots soldiers wearing kilts into battle. specificly the Gordon highlanders. my great grandfather lied about his age to join. and was later wounded in France when he was shot in the arm.
i am jus a beginner when it comes to modding. but if i were to learn and produce a suitable player model of a ww1 Scots soldier would u consider adding it?
holler at me
I was thinking the same...
"looked like the course of a gigantic mole which had flung up uneven heaps of earth. Here and there a huge piece of corrugated iron would be flung upon the parapet ... there stood one of those steel boxes, more or less concealed under a heap of earth. Here and there lay great piles of sandbags, black red green, striped, blue dazzling our eyes. The Germans had a splendid parapet behind which a man could move and over which he could look with comparative impunity"
Jacko, just to make sure, this is a British soldier describing the German trenches, yes?
The steel box he is referring to is perhaps a machine-gun post? I doubt he's just talking about a plain steel box.
You said this statement is from 1914; does your book say where this is exactly and what month and day around? Was it at Ypres (if so, which part of the Ypres Salient)? The Aisne River?? Any more information you can give would be great.
It sounds like he is describing the parapet which was the defenses lining the front of a trench.
Is this man saying that the Germans sandbags were black red green, stripe, and blue??
I'm interested in learning more about the statement.
The German trenches were considered the best constructed trenches.
lay great piles of sandbags, black red green, striped, blue dazzling our eyes.
OK, but I'm just kind of puzzled by these chromatic German sandbags, if that is what he is talking about and referring to(?).
