Issue #48: "Novum initium"





Springtime 2021!
The time of new beginnings is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere. As such, now is the time start planting your seeds so you can reap the rewards later.
Statistically, February is the month where the majority of people give up on their New Years Resolutions, but I know that Minden News readers do not give up easily and I know that all of you are very studiously and steadfastly adhering to the promises you made for 2021. Isn't that right, readers?

51st vs. GDE Linebattle
I'm not sure if you have heard yet, but there's a linebattle tonight between the 51st and the GDE, a French regiment. It's regiment versus another with all support companies participating (Lights, Cav., Arty.). The GDE have told us they will be bringing about 60-65 men, so we'll need a good showing to match them. I'm sure it'll be a good linebattle and a lot of fun if nothing else! All those who can make it are strongly encouraged to attend, especially those in specialised companies. So be around or be square.

Wednesday, after training at 21:00 CET / 15:00 EDT.
• Ruleset is here!

Past tournament results
Internal 1v1 Melee Tournament
There's nothing like a good melee fest and the most recent melee 1v1 tournament went off with great success! There was some fantastic fights between participants, especially during the last few fights with some extraordinary talent being showcased. We've hosted a few of these tournaments now and we hope those who attended enjoyed participating or even just spectating the event. Even if you didn't do as well as you hoped, it's good experience and we hope you use this as an opportunity to improve your melee skills.

The winners are as follows:
• 1st/Guardsman - Lance Corporal James_Stukov
• 2nd - Lance Corporal Acez
• 3rd - Private Turtles

Once again, well done to all those who participated and especially to our winners. You can see the final standings by clicking the 1v1 Melee Challonge link!
Additionally, as you make know, this tournament will be used as an evaluation for potential Grenadiers so stay tuned to see who makes the cut.

1st WA Cavalry Tournament
We recently had two teams compete in the 1stWA Cav Tournament Major and Minor leagues. Our lads did very well with the Major team making it to the finals and coming in second place and the Minor team made it to the semi-finals and achieved third place. Our cavalry lads have been putting in the work over the last few months and the tournament results prove this with each team performing better than some longer established cavalry groups from other regiments. A huge well done to the lads and hopefully they use this opportunity to further improve their skills!

You can see the final standings of each league through their challonge links below:

Donators and Recruitment
A huge thank you as always to our donators and recruiters, it's you who keep this regiment ticking over.

We run a number of servers that are used by the regiment, either for Holdfast or for other games we play with the community. If you wish to contribute towards the upkeep costs, you can do so by donating to the regiment via Patreon, where you receive certain benefits, or by donating to our PayPal via the website.

Recently our Discord has been server boosted to Level 3 which gives us a range of perks and benefits including, but not limited to, 1080p 60fps streaming (which is greatly appreciated by Movie Club), an increased upload limit of 100mb and a unique Discord URL, which will help with recruiting!

Speaking of recruiting, if you want to support the regiment in another way, you can do so by recruiting regularly on public servers. The more new recruits that we get allows us to field more men during linebattles, which in turn allows us to run more lines and utilise specialised companies.
More recruits = bigger and better linebattles!

Issue #47: "A Napoleonic Wallpaper For You In 2021"





Napoleonic Era Artwork Ready!

The 51st Regiment of Foot commissioned a Napoleonic era digital painting from artist Gabriel Tan. The artwork was crowdfunded entirely by 51st members, both through individual contributions and our Patreon. We think the result is absolutely fantastic, which depicts a valiant 51st line led by an officer volleying the French. Thank you to all contributors and our Patrons. The artwork will be used by the regiment for different purposes, such as the background and header of the website, Discord invites, and other promotional material. You can contact Captain Mark on Discord to receive a 4K version of the artwork. Corporal VectorScope, who created our uniforms, will touch up the final version of the artwork which will soon hang on many walls.

Acez Floated Like a Butterfly, Stung Like a Bee

On December 18, our members did not fight in melee arenas or in all-charge during a linebattle. Instead, boxing rings were set up and we all spilled blood and smelled like pigs, during the first Boxing Night of the 51st Regiment of Foot. Lance Corporal Acez emerged as the last man standing in the ring and won the tournament. Glory to our melee sweat, as apparently he does not even need a bayonet to kill enemies!

Up and coming melee player and perhaps future boxing champion Grenadier CableFre finished the tournament in second place. Third place went to the most active member of our regiment, who makes the enlisted steady in the lines with his deep voice and huge experience: Sergeant Major Unc0nn3ct3d.

Hats off to Corporal VectorScope for organizing the event as smoothly as the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship Match.

Lance Corporal Average Earns a Cross of Valor

On Thursday, January 14th, 2021, Lance Corporal Average showed an exceptional performance in the line battle and was awarded a Cross of Valor, Third Class. He defeated five enemy combatants as the last man standing. He faced extremely skilled melee players in a highly tense all charge situation. He managed to maintain his composure and slew four enemies before emerging on top against the final enemy in a nail-biting duel. He was even praised by our commander-in-chief Colonel Stalker during the parade, where he was awarded the Cross of Valor.

Despite being a member of the artillery company, he was also part of the last regimental groupfighting roster. Previous recipients of the Cross of Valor can be found in the #medal-recipients channel on Discord. We offer our congratulations to Average and thank him for his excellent melee performance.

Cavalry Tournament Hosted by 51st is Starting

Our newest company, the cavalry company, has been very active in recent months and has been steadily working on trainings its members and defining its tactics. One of cavalry companies' members, Fusilier MacTire has now organized the 51st Cavalry Tournament. The tournament format will be three-versus-three cavalry battles, using both melee and carbines. It will take place on January 16th and 17th at 17:00 CET/11PM ET.

If you can find two other members just register through the #cavalry-tournament channel on Discord. You can optionally have reserve members. Sixteen teams have registered so far.

NCO Applications Are Open!

Do you want to give back the regiment a bit more? Do you want to have more responsibility in and out of the game, including the possibility of leading our lines in linebattles? Applying for the NCO program is your chance if the answers to the above questions is a resounding "yes".

If you hold at least the rank of Regular and you are interested in becoming an NCO, check the #nco-applications channel on Discord to post your application. If your application gets approved, you will enter the three month trial program. You will learn the in-game and administrative responsibilities of an NCO, you will take commanding lessons from the leaders of the regiment, and you will be expected to show the standards of an exemplary member of the 51st Regiment. Getting into the program is not a guarantee of becoming an NCO! You will be informed whether you are accepted as NCO or not at the end of trial period.

Hurry up though! Applications will close soon.

Recruitment & Welcome!

Thank you to our recruiters for their hard work in bringing new blood to our regiment. You can always do recruitment while playing on public servers. Check out the #recruitment channel in Discord for the recruitment messages. The regiment's top recruiter Corporal HubblyBubbly is reaching new heights. He has recruited 240 members so far. We are incredibly thankful for all he has done. He was recently awarded the Distinguished Service Medal, Third Class for his unmatched recruitment numbers. Lance Corporal Omer Haybo is also going strong, with ninety recruited members.

We'd like to once again welcome our new members. We hope you enjoy your time in the 51st Regiment. Feel free to hop on to TeamSpeak, hang out with us play Holdfast or other games. You can always join and have fun!
