The Battle for Germany
The Battle for Germany by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My 13th submission to DYOS X.ii. [link]
Special Musical Guest: Ian Livingstone

Despite the actual progression of the thread, I wanted to emphasize that Hickten was on shaky ground from the start. Before lord_joakim jumped ship to Dae's plot in DYOS XI, we thought the war was to serve as a temporary stop-gap until he was ready to get the Gargantua/Gem arc underway properly.

I remember I had quite a bit of fun putting this together. I'd plugged the Cold War Crisis mod back in DYOS X, but this was the first time I had a real excuse to showcase it. This was also shortly after I'd got the complete Company of Heroes. The game needs micromanagement like all hell, but with the right setup *cough*invincibilitycheat*cough* it's absolutely beautiful for screenshots. I shot a handful of other scenes that weren't used in this comic, one of which appears in this page by @GenMarshall.

Come to think of it, Monty's probably still holding Munich...

Map and models created/ported by various Facepunchers I'm too lazy to list at the moment.
