Our second update on the all-new infantry models and animations for Battleground Europe includes a sneak peek at the new German and French characters.
As we previously revealed, Cornered Rat Software has been working on a total replacement for all infantry characters and third person animations. As of the first week of October, The British and German infantry models, including field kit objects like ammo pouches, helmets and packs, have made it into QA/testing.
We're now moving onto completion of the French infantry model and kit as well as getting a start on the unique paratroop models needed for each country. German and British paratroop characters will be modified from the base infantry with unique elements including textures and kit. The French paratrooper requires an all-new model.
We have succsefully tested many of our new animations and while there is still a lot of work to be done, so far our schedule hasn't been blown-up by anything unforseen.
I want to take this opportunity to thank many of the BUILDERS who contributed towards the project. We recently had several new BUILDERS join the program and had many of our existing members upgrade to the new Platinum level. Our sincere thanks for supporting great projects like this!

We will continue to post updates with some fresh new screens and videos as we reach new milestones in the project. Stay tuned!
