    This doesn't happen to be inspired by Men Of War is it? Cause a lot of these models remind me of it. :D.

    Although i love Men of War and in some parts am inspired by it, the models were mostly referenced by schematics from the real vehicles, while textures were referenced from another game called "Theatre of War". The mortar team would be the only exception, where i studied the animations of the MoW mortar team while i made it. Other things in WiF inspired by MoW are the angular damage system, and the way sandbags are positioned together with barbed wire in arranged formations (just a minor thing that i took to heart).


    Furthermore, i can say that the next version is planned to be released next weekend. I hope to be hosting games with clan BAR on friday and saturday.

    UK can get mortar teams, but the version is not released yet, so obviously they're not in the version you're playing.. :S

    Waffen SS are much stronger than normal infantry, but also more expensive and you can only have 30 of them at the time.

    By the way, some chinese guys wrote to us on the forums and told me they had made a chinese WiF forum and wanted to make a translated version. Kinda fun to hear :)
