Un RTS inspiré d'un jeu de Games Workshop, par Striking Pheonix.
C'est un mod pour le moteur MegaGlest (dans le Bottin).

Armies of the Old World est un RTS inspiré d'un jeu de Games Workshop (NdT : Chaos in the Old World ?) fournissant 3 races (Armies Of The Wastes, Elves Of Ulthuan And Lorien, The Empire).

Le sang, les cendres et la mort empestent les champs de batailles de l'ancien monde alors que de féroces armées marchent vers une mort certaine.
Alors que l'entrechoquement des épées monte haut sur l'horizon, un seul homme détient le sort de l'Ancien Monde entre ses mains : vous!

Ce mod de MegaGlest fourni 3 races, chacune avec son niveau et ses options : Armies Of The Wastes, Elves Of Ulthuan And Lorien, The Empire.
Il n'est en aucun cas affilié avec Games Workshop, toutes les unités ont été changées, il ne s'agit que d'une interprétation.

Description [en]

Greetings commanders and tacticians. We have need of your skills in the campaign that awaits you.

Blood, ash and death plague the fields of the Old World as fierce armies march towards certain doom. As the clash of swords rises high above the horizon, one man holds the fate of the Old World in his hands- you! A small, work-in-progress mod for Glest, this currently features three races: The Armies of the Wastes, the Empire, and the High Elves + Wood Elves.

With each race benefiting from different skills and options, the bloody battle for the Warhammer Universe continues.
By: Striking Pheonix (I am in no way affiliated with Games Workshop- all unit names that have been changed belong to them and this is simply an interpretation.)

This mod is based on Games-workshop's universe, and currently features four races- the Elves of Ulthuan and Lorien, the Empire, the Armies of the Chaos Wastes, and Bretonnia.

For those not familiar with Warhammer, allow me to summarize the races:

EMPIRE:
A massive nation that sprawls across the Old World, The Empire enlists its brave warriors to repel the invaders of Chaos in the name of Sigmar. With highly trained infantry and state of the art technology, the thirteen states of the Empire are a steadfast opponent against evil from within and without. With their strong Kislevite allies to the north and their staunch Dwarven friends in the mountains of the Old World, the Empire is one of the most powerful forces in the Warhammer world.

HIGH ELVES:
Disciplined levies of ithilmar-clad high elven soldiers stand guard against the constant threat of chaos. The sons of Ulthuan and masters of magic, the High Elves are brave soldiers and loyal friends. From their mystical Isle they strike- quickly and lethally.
WOOD ELVES:
Stubborn elves who refused to abandon their homes after the War of the Beard, the Wood Elves defend their magical forest with the skill and tenacity of the beasts that they befriend. Skilled with a bow and lightening-fast warriors, they are enemies of all who threaten their sacred home.

CHAOS:
Twisted worshippers of Chaos from the frozen wastes, these barbaric warriors descend on the Old World in search of blood, power, and slaughter for their gods. A force to be reckoned with, they bring their corruption with them wherever they go.

BRETONNIA:
Staunch followers of the Lady of the Lake, the Bretonnians are an old monarchy of chivalric knights and loyal peasants. Following a strict code of morals, these brave fighters are to be counted on in any fight against evil.

These are the current races at the moment. Soon, once I master the art of importing models :), you will be able to take to the field with hordes of orcs, swarms of skaven, and far more.

Don't be frightened by the fact that no new models are included- this mod features many graphical changes nonethless.

Test [fr]

Test (20130827)de fonctionnement (testé 5 min) de Goupildb :
L'objectif était avant tout de tester la chaîne d'installation du Mod.
Ca marche. J'avais la race Armies Of The Wastes, un mixe de monstres avec des magiciens, et l'IA avait "Elves Of Ulthuan And Lorien", des humanoïdes.
Il ne m'aura fallu qu'à peine 3 minutes pour me faire envahir et dominer. Ces cavaliers sont redoutables.
