    hehe, yes W.i.n.t.e.r
    the university needs much time, so I can't do a lot of mods (don't know when I can publish my Winterterrain-mod, maybe I wait up to next winter :D )
    at the moment I've some free weeks, but have to learn for some exams too, I'm fascinated of the game "Sacred" and try to create a savegame/character-editor with another one, I think in 1-2 weeks the first version will be ready :cool: (but that's not the right forum for this ^^)

    ok, since I was gone for the week-end, couldn't post here faster and only got on the 2nd page:cry: :cry: :cry:

    Anyway.... Great unit, thx a lot, I'm sure it will be the new "must" for every WW2 scenario.... :goodjob:

    (The black uniform and weapon just make this unit look really good, I don't think waffen SS should go around in grey???? any historical pics for this kind of Uniforms?? also, the rifle just for me is quite WW1, not WW2, at least in that animation...)

    Maybe a nice SA Unit (which noone has made yet) would also be great... (brown uniform, colt like weapon...)

    Actually black uniforms were only worn for ceremonial purposes like parades, guard duty at selected State Ministries- the black was used by the SS, the waffen SS instead was a different organisation- in the field the Waffen SS would wear normal army grey (feldgrau) until the issueing of better, cammouflage (spelling?) equipment.
    -----------
    The Rifle was WWII standard issue weaponry- in the field, felwebels (Seargeants) and officers frequently had MPs. Mashine Guns instead were still too bulky at this time, hence required more than one person to carry one MG unit. So, the rifle is quite fitting for WWII- have in mind again that even if later during the war the Waffen SS had better weapons than the regular army this happened only until after 1942/43. The black coloured TRT unit is the ceremonial (hence white gloves, rifle)
    Leibstandarte one, Hitler's Personal guard (Hitler had an entire Waffen SS division for his and other high official's protection- rather than having regular SS thugs around ;))

    And the unit.

    Well its nicely done, but there is something dont like with it, maybe its the Swatzika in the uint graphics.

    If it was not there, then its was a great unit :)

    Isn't this the Waffen SS? The Nazi Waffen SS? If you've got a problem with the Swatzika, you probably shouldn't be downloading SS units in the first place ...

    I've got no problem with anyone finding the Swatzika offensive, but I'm not a fan of censoring history. If you don't like, don't download it. Simple as that.
