Issue #29: Jingle My Cannon Balls!
Artillery Update - Movable Artillery After a long time off we open this instalment of the Minden News with the latest on the game! The crack team over at AGS have been working hard to push out the long anticipated update to artillery. This includes movable cannons, a cannoneer class, ammo boxes and much more! You can find the full changelog for the patch here - Steam News Post
Festive Schedule It's that time of year again! And as per tradition we will be going into a 'Christmas break' from the 23rd of December until the 4th of January. The last event will be the Sunday linebattle on the 23rd and the first event back with be the Friday linebattle on 4th. However, this doesn't mean there wont be plenty going on over the festive period! Plenty of us will be hanging around the TeamSpeak playing various games (including Holdfast) so feel free to join in or start-up your own game sessions at any time!
To round off this issue of the Minden News, we'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope to see you all in 2019!

Issue #28: Show Your Merit! [Update!]
Grenadiers - The Regiment's Finest! We open this week's Minden News with a special feature on an upcoming structural change within the regiment: The Grenadier Company will soon be established! With this, we plan to reward those of you who show the greatest skill and dedication. Thus, being accepted into this company will not happen automatically, as it does with King's and Queen's upon reaching the rank of Private. There will be a finite number (TBD) of spots in this company to emphasize the exclusiveness of this group. The rank of Grenadier (formerly Guardsman) can only be earned by being an enlisted member of Grenadier Company. This means that the highest enlisted rank for those outside of the Grenadiers will still be Fusilier.
Speaking of King's and Queen's Company - As much as we hate to disappoint the patriots among you, these two companies will be merged into Centre Company.
Do stay tuned as we plan to establish and open up Grenadier Company alongside the Melee Overhaul. Melee combat will be the primary skill we expect our Grenadiers to excel at and as such, we want the actual game mechanics to be as stable as possible to allow for accurate skill-based evaluation! Lastly, please note that the rank of Grenadier and with it a spot in Grenadier Company will, unlike other ranks, not be achieved and thereafter held indefinitely. We reserve the option to remove inactive Grenadiers and place them back into Centre Company so someone else may occupy their spot. Further details will follow!
NCO Applications to open up again! We always look for talent within the regiment. Just like we plan to reward extraordinary skill in melee and high activity with a prestigious spot in the upcoming Grenadier Company, we also offer up roles as Non-Commissioned Officers for those of you with knack for organisation or the skills to lead on the battlefield. NCOs are an invaluable asset to our officer corps and help out in many different ways. Maybe YOU can help the regiment as well?
Soon, we will reopen the NCO Application Thread and give members ranked Regular or above the opportunity to become part of our NCO programme. Check the thread for all the details! We will provide you with the starting date as soon as we have one.
UPDATE! NCO Applications are now OPEN! Apply here! Do so by the 15th of October to be considered. Further details will follow after the deadline.
To end this issue with, we would like to remind you that development of Holdfast is still going on, but much of it happens behind the scenes. Those of you who would like to get involved in testing new builds, features and such should let us know. Thank you for reading another issue of the Minden News™, YOUR official and reliable source of anything 51st!
Check out this week's events!

Issue #27: Rearranging our schedule and upcoming fun stuff - ADDENDUM
|Monday ||Tuesday ||Wednesday ||Thursday ||Friday ||Saturday ||Sunday|
|20:00 CET||20:00 CET||20:00 CET|
|14:00 EST||14:00 EST||14:00 EST|
Our new Holdfast schedule - In order to accommodate to everyone's precious available time we have decided to evenly space out our Holdfast events over the week. For the moment nothing much has changed, except the Thursday coastal siege we will not be attending presently. The other events on the schedule are your old familiars; the Tuesday training, the Friday linebattle event and the Sunday linebattle event. Everything at the usual times!
Napoleonic Wars - A ghost from the past? - A lot of our members wet their first bayonet in Mount & Blade Warband - Napoleonic Wars. We left after years of venerated status and we thought it would be great fun to revisit our old home from time to time. This Saturday (08/09) we will be attending the 33rd Saturday Event at the usual 20 CET. Everyone who is up for it is free to join!
Kick back and relax with the community - The 51st Regiment is not just about being yelled at for coughing in a linebattle or being shot in the head for facing the wrong way! Sometimes we decide to have fun. Watching a great (probably historical) movie together, playing fun games or even online boardgames are all on the table for our future community event nights. Again, we will be formalizing this in the future but we already want your ideas put on the table about which movies to watch, what games to play or any other activities we could do on such a night. Don't be shy to bring forward your idea! We also encourage everyone to actively join our TeamSpeak as we play other games already on a daily basis.

Issue #26: Don't I look great in black?
Prussia Trailer! You heard that right, Prussia is finally arriving! To share this grand bit of news with the rest of the world, Anvil Game Studios plan to release a trailer and you could be a part of it! The shooting is to take place tomorrow (Wednesday) at 21:00 CEST and will require an impressive amount of extras. The devs have asked for our help and would like to borrow our time for this, so if you think yourself photogenic and would like a chance to star in the game's official promotional material, be there tomorrow! Further announcements will be made via Steam and on Teamspeak. Of course, this also means that the 0.14 Beta continues to progress in development and the spanking new faction will join the fray sooner rather than later. Good times!
Buying some Cigarettes! Also, an announcement on our own behalf: We here at the Minden News managed to publish a great total of 26 issues as of today and for this we would like to once again thank you for reading our content! However, the frequency of new issues will decrease from now on, meaning there may not be a new issue each week. This is partly due to the lack of newsworthy content and because yours truly will be taking a short leave of absence. We will continue to report important developments as they reach us. Until we can return to our regular release schedule, we invite you to become intern journalists yourselves and share your freshest news with the rest of the community.
Events will of course happen as usual, starting with the filming for the trailer, hosted and moderated by the developers, on Wednesday at 21:00 CEST. Be sure to look your best and smile for the cameras. Our regular events for this week are on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 20:00 CEST. You can expect further Beta testing with the newest content. We would be repeating ourselves if we thanked you for your attention yet again, so instead let us take this moment to collectively pat ourselves on the backs. Go, us! Until the next issue of the Minden News™, we hope you have a great time and we will see you then!
