Introduction of the 4e Régiment de Grenadiers à pied de la Garde Impériale



The 4e Grenadiers Garde Impériale was created on the 22nd May 2017 from a merger between the NW clans 5te Lützowsches Freikorps and Four-Two Gaming. Made up of a well rounded and welcoming community, we strive to continue the legacy of both regiments in to Holdfast: Nations At War. FTG and 5teFKI have a long history together since NW came out, the leadership going back even before Mount & Musket. It all started in Battlegrounds 2, a Revolutionary War Source mod.

FTG

FTG, or 42 Commando as it was known back then, was created in September 2010 as a Battlegrounds 2 clan. At it's height it was among the most active and influential clans in BG2, this is also where Johann and Skill met, leaders of the 5teFKI and FTG respectively. 42Cdo would continue to be a big player in the BG2 community until April 2012 when a lot of members, including Johann, left to form a MM regiment called the Royal Scots. However that same year in December 42Cdo moved to NW as the Royal Marines.

Royal Marines would be renamed to Four-Two Gaming and took a more laid-back and relaxed stance at NW and started branching out to various diffrent games. Four-Two Gaming has played NW on and off since then until today.

5teFKI

The 5te Lützowsches Freikorps was founded in late November 2012 by Johann and a handful of ex-42Cdo and Royal Scots friends. It would differ from the Royal Scots by striving to create a more disciplined and mature regiment. It would continue to join events almost on a daily basis until January 2015 when it collapsed due to drama for the first time. However in March that same year it would be reformed until collapsing yet again in May. Several smaller regiments would form out of it's remains when once again in early 2016 it was reformed. The 5teFKI have been semi active on NW from then until today.

Whigs & Tories / Zombie event?
« on: October 02, 2015, 05:32:31 pm »
I personally wanna keep the community alive and kicking, as the mod is just major league gaming content. So I thought something unique and (maybe) interesting as a "zombie" event could be fun enough to keep people playing, and maybe even attract more people to the mod.

Basically, 1 man goes Native American, and the rest goes Continental. Humans (continentals) are not allowed to melee, but they can shoot and block. There'll be a timer for the server, like 30-40 minutes and the humans objective is to survive the zombie (native american) attacks. If a human dies, he'll go Native American aswell. Natives are only allowed to melee. Sappers will be allowed to build stuff, so long as they don't block doors etc. Here's how it'll go...

  • Everyone with the exception of 1 zombie goes Human.
  • Zombies are not allowed to shoot, only melee.
  • Humans are allowed to shoot and block, but no melee.
  • Humans will respawn as Native Americans if they've been killed.
  • Sappers are allowed and will have quite alot of build points, but they are not allowed to block doors etc.
If we go through with this idea, the first event will be hosted on the 5teHK server which is 64 slot. We'll see how it goes from there and if it's good/decent we'll host it again with 200 slots, on the official server. Feedback is most welcome.

Introduction of the 5te Lützowsches Freikorps



The 5. Lützowsches Freikorps is an active, disciplined and experienced Napoleonic Wars regiment. We take pride in being one of the oldest Prussian regiment in the community and our discipline in battle. We have experienced seasoned fighters and fresh new recruits in our ranks, everyone is welcome to join the 5. Lützowsches Freikorps. Inexperienced players will be taught how to use the bayonet and the musket most effectively, veterans will be fighting alongside other veterans and new recruits, teaching them a thing or two during trainings and Linebattles.

In the 5. Lützowsches Freikorps we value discipline and maturity the most. We want to keep a high level of maturity and discipline in linebattles to increase our performance and be able to form historical military formations relatively easily, this varies from the simplest formations such as column and the double rank, to the fire & advance and square formations.

If you are interested in joining a serious, disciplined and professional Freikorps regiment, enlist for service in the 5. Lützowsches Freikorps!




History of the Lützowsches Freikorps



Origins

The unit was officially founded in February 1813 as Königlich Preußisches Freikorps von Lützow (Royal Prussian Free Corps von Lützow). Lützow, who had been an officer under the ill-fated Ferdinand von Schill, obtained permission from the Prussian Chief-of-Staff Gerhard von Scharnhorst to organize a free corps consisting of infantry, cavalry, and Tyrolean Jäger (literally, “hunters” ― i.e., marksmen, snipers), for flank attacks and guerrilla warfare behind the French lines. Volunteers were to be drawn from all over Germany (including Austria) to fight against Napoleon I of France; it was hoped that this broadly national force would aid in rallying the smaller German governments into the ranks of the Allies.

The Corps has been alleged to have consisted mostly of students and academics; however, in reality these amounted to no more than 12% of the total force, which was actually composed mostly of craftsmen and laborers. Besides the well-known Saxon dramatist and poet Carl Theodor Körner, the Corps also included academics, writers, and other well known figures, such as Georg Friedrich Kersting, Friedrich Friesen, Joseph von Eichendorff, and Friedrich Ludwig Jahn. The educator Friedrich Fröbel, who later developed the concept of the Kindergarten, also belonged to the Lützowers. In addition, at least two women, Eleonore Prochaska and Anna Lühring, had managed to join in disguise.
The Tyroleans, whose leaders Jakob Riedl and Joseph Ennemoser had fought with Andreas Hofer for the liberation of Tyrol since 1809, came into the Lützow Corps after the armistice of Summer 1813.

Uniforms

Because the Kingdom of Prussia already had problems financing and equipping its regular forces, the volunteers had to equip and supply themselves by their own means. Many times civilian clothing or old uniforms ― even enemy uniforms taken as booty ― were simply dyed. Black was therefore used for their uniforms rather than the normal Prussian blue, because this was the only color that could be used to dye the improvised clothing (if any other had been used, the clothing's original color would have shown through, resulting in an unacceptable mix of colors for the Corps as a whole). The quality of the material often left much to be desired.

For similar reasons of economy, a civilian-style trench coat, the so-called litewka or Polish frock coat ― double-breasted, without a tail-slit ― was chosen for infantry and rifle detachments, and later extended to the artillery. The tunic was black, as were the trousers, with red trim chosen for the rank insignia along the collar, cuffs, epaulets, and front edge of the tunic; on officers’ uniforms, collars and cuffs were faced in velvet. On the tunic’s front, eight embossed brass buttons were arranged in two vertical rows.

Volunteers with particular skills were allowed to transfer to special units with their own uniforms. Hussars and lancers (uhlans) wore dolman jackets, often brought from their former units, dyed black (as were the hussars’ pelisses). Hussars and lancers wore only black and white, the red being omitted. Officers’ uniforms carried silver cords, rather than white, and were in addition trimmed with black fur. Lützow himself wore the black hussar uniform.

Due to its improvised nature, headgear worn by the Free Corps was very various. The infantry headgear corresponded to that of Schill’s corps of 1809, consisting of a black shako, with a clasp and side cordon and tassel. The cavalry wore a felt shako (though due to scarce resources, some were made even of cardboard) with a black-and-yellow braid and tassel; often a black oilcloth was worn over them as protection from the weather. For parades cavalry were accustomed to wear a black horsehair tassel and a black cordon. The Tyroleans continued to wear the turned up and plumed hats of their native region.

In addition, some volunteers sported peaked caps or even large berets. Often against orders the symbol of a civilian or student society would be attached. In the early days of the Corps, Lützow and others also wore a skull on their headgear (in the same manner as the Duke of Brunswick’s Schwarze Schar), until forbidden by royal command.

Combat

The Lützow Free Corps distinguished itself from the mass of the army, in that it was a voluntary association, whose members were remarkable for superior activity, energy, and enterprise. Unlike many of the regular army, their loyalty was rather to Germany as a whole than to Prussia or the House of Hohenzollern; many of them made a vow to neither cut their hair nor their beards till they had driven the French entirely out of German lands. Nevertheless, it had the highest percentage of deserters in the Army of Prussia, was treated with marked coolness by the King (who was anything but an ardent nationalist and anyway preferred his regulars), and accomplished relatively little in the way of major military success.

The average size of the Corps was 2,900 infantry, 600 cavalry and 120 artillery, varying throughout the war. It fought in many battles, operating first independently in the rear of the French troops, later as a regular unit in the allied armies. The Lützowers displayed great gallantry throughout the remainder of the war, and proved a source of constant annoyance to the French, who regarded them with exceptional hostility, Napoleon himself referring to their chief as “ce brigand Lützow, chef du corps de la Vengeance“ (“that robber Lützow, head of the band of Revenge”).

At the proclamation of the armistice of June 4–August 13, 1813, the Corps, eager to gain a dashing victory against the hated emperor, had been deep behind enemy lines and were hastening back to German-held territory (supposedly under a French safe-conduct), when they were caught there in contradiction to the terms of armistice. The French general Fournier ordered an attack on the Corps, replying to a demand for explanation, “Armistice pour tout le monde, excepté pour vous !“ (“truce for all, but not for you”).

After the peace of 1814 the Corps was dissolved. The infantry were converted into the 25th Infantry Regiment (from November 5, 1816 known as the 1st Rhine) as regular infantrymen, consisting of 2419 men (82 officers / 2337 troops) organized into a 1st Battalion, 2nd Battalion, and 3rd Battalion, under the command of Christian Friedrich Engel von Petersdorff (who had been a major under Lützow); the cavalry were reorganized into the 6th Uhlans under Lützow himself. After Napoleon’s return from Elba, both regiments fought at Ligny and Waterloo during the Hundred Days. The composition of their units remained unique and still bore the impress of the Lützow corps, e.g., retaining the same black litewka and shako.
