The 3rd scenario takes advantages of the Mollwitz 41 and brings the French, Bavarians and Saxons in September and October 41, the scenario ends in february 42.
Historically, the Franco-Bavarins threatened Vienna, Prag had been taken in November 41 and the Austrians under Maria Theresa's husband François-Stéphane (Franz-Stephan) gathered an Army to relieve the Town but too late.

The scenario is semi-historical as the treaty of Kleinschnellendorf is not done (no diplomatie possible). It supposes that Brown, not Neipperg is sent for the diplomatical mission and that Brown didn't give Neisse to the Prussians and thus the War keeps going on in Silésia.
This Scenario "Maria-Theresa at Bay" will see the Austrians attacked from every side although not at the same time and should be a real challenge.

No, no advance at all since August.
PhilThib send me (in july) numerous Versions of Molwitz 41 and the 1744 scénarios that i have improved especially in set-up units and starting locations.
The events are awaiting the artists view as the leaders unless they have been done this summer.

I still have to verify the dates for the reinforcements because it didn't work.
The replacements are still to be done.

The set-ups as senn previously are mostly OK although i have forgotten one or 2 units for Molwitz 41.

Thus my playtests this summer (between 30 and 40 games were interesting to discover some problems but many elements were lacking.

I will concentrate only on Molwitz so that there is no confusion to the changes so that this scenario appear rapidly, once done Maria theresa at bay will be done since there will be more turns added (the reinforcements are ready).

The 1744 scenar is more complicated to do since there is many events, etc.. nevertheless my early playtests on early campaign were simply fantastic ;) with the prussians invading Bohemia and the Austrians with von Traun rushing from the rhine to the front.
But the events giving the Saxons didn't work. This scenar has still many additions to be done/verified.

I haven't worked on this for some time as my Cie has some trouble (half of workers are now out of job (11 out of 22) and i had my head elsewhere.

I will write the Historical background in the following days and sent a new set-up adding 3 units soon to Philthib and will verify those dates for reinforcements. It would be nice to have 1 or 2 scenarios with the patch.

Here is the situation and Philthib was very busy in September so that he didn't look at the problems.

Hope that helps. Don't worry the scenarios are coming :thumbsup:

No problem. I just wanted to know which AGEOD game will take my time during the holidays. :mdr:

I understand there is still significant work to be done, so I'll wait patiently.

Mollwitz 41 can be finished rapidly, working reinforcements and one problem to resolve and this is OK.

Maria Theresa at bay needs a working Molwitz 41 as this is the basis and adds a few months an new opponents.

Here is a reworked Frederick. The Frederick one usually has in mind as the "Old Fritz" is actually by far too old for the 7 years war and fits much better to the war of the bavarian succession.

According to wikipedia, the painting by Johann Georg Ziesenis the Younger is the only one during Fredericks reign, for which Frederick has personally posed. It was painted between 17th and 20th June 1763 at Schloss Salzdahlum, so it shows Frederick shortly after the war. It seems as if he had always been a bit hunchbacked. ;)

Here is the preview of my 1763 Frederick-portraits for ROP (the files are attached to the post):

PS: I'm also working on a "battle-sounds"-mod and another set of austrian and prussian unit graphics (this time more in the sober, reduced ageod-unit-graphics-style). Here are some wip previews

Before that, you could want to add _BAK to old file names if you want to be able to revert easily.

Same thing for Maria-Theresa.

2 portraits here, one for the 1740's and a second more inthe 60's or end 50's much better that the in game portrait and give justice to our beloved Maria-Theresa (for Austrians players). :)

No this is a proposal for Jacques Delalaing or oneArmedMexican to do a new portrait for Maria-Theresa.

I find this one from 1762 (painted by Jean-Étienne Liotard) interesting:

I didn't care that much about Maria Theresia because, unlike Frederick, you won't ever meet her on the battlefield. ;) I will try to capture her "beauty" for RoP.

[EDIT:

I also found a painting of Lucchesi here

That one is for you OneArmedMexican.

JacquesDelalaing, i saw that you updated your post and i like your new Fusilier and Saxons in Prussian Uniform.
Lodilefty has updated i think for the patch the Saxon with a prussian Musketier but your new figurine will add diversity.
As for the new fusilier with golden mitre, i find it very nice and will allow to make diversity in the scenarios.
There will be a new model for Molwitz 41 where the Fusilier were not good soldiers and thus will have less power.
The Fusilier were often Silesian Catholics or coming from other parts of Prussia.
The 2 fusilier figurines will allow to have standard fusiliers and very good fusilier Rgts in one year scenario. :thumbsup:

Funny you say that becuse in my current game playing as the Austrians she leads an army and actually defeated Frederick.

Normally, she's fixed in Vienna, i suppose that Vienna was besieged to unfix her.

On page 6 of this thread, Nikel posted Christian Lobkowitz that i couldn't send to PhilThib.

In the meantime all other leaders have been done by Ageod Artist :) but this forgotten one. If you can do something ;) .
I will have perhaps 2 or three more later.

Is this directed at me or Florent? I believe he probably knows better which new graphics are needed for his scenarios. But of course I can put everything together that I did and that is not yet included in the current patch (besides the graphics done for Florent there are a few more like Sprengporten that aren't yet in the official patch). Just send me a PM. :)
