Re: Field of Glory: Empires Update 1.04 Preview

Sparta now starts with hoplites and can get phalangites at Civilization Level III, representing Kleomenes III military reform. They both provide a siege bonus also. Military buildings in province all counts now when you recruit. The ones in the capital count in full, and ALL OTHERS in others region...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Update 1.04 Preview

Diplomacy no, it will take more time for us to come with something fleshed out enough. For the time being, we added the Retaliate order so you can attack without conquering. With the Abandon order, you can relinquish a region you already hold (and the cost is much more affordable now). Unit assignm...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

For a 2.99 unit pack RBS would have to build an all new system to technically allow the non-universal unit graphics and army lists, which would all be time away from developing actual game content. Pat would need just as much time making the new models for 2.99 pack as he uses for making models for...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

You don't need to provide evidence. We are well aware that some of the men in a shieldwall would have helmets. However, as we have mentioned before, we are a small studio and our art budget (and art time allocation) is not infinite. There were simply too many variations of appearance in Ancient and...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

I also checked Osprey's publishing Anglo-Saxon Thegn that, at least in 1993, its publishing date, outside literary sources little evidence of mail shirt was found until late 10th century. So I am fine with current Anglo-Saxon list that Hirdmen shift to Huscarl with more armor from 871-949 list to 9...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

Should the hemet design be nation specific or any nation can have 25% of the same helmet? Because many nations use the same shield wall unit.

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

Models having armor or not is one issue, but the source justifying that hirdsmen are less protected than huscarl is another. I am only curious about the latter. Our main source was Ian Heath's Armies of the Dark Ages, which states, when discussing 7th-9th century Saxons: "Mail byrnies and helmets w...

I think better use the ridge helmet?Many shieldwall-used nations have that type of helmet.

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

I'd rather see no helmets at all for the raw/regular shieldwalls Just need some helmets for the regular shield wall,like mr.scartabelli said 25% will be good.There're 8 models in one regular shield wall unit so that means only 2-3 models will have helmets and others not.Helmet is the secondary impo...

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

I don't think the shieldwalls really need helmets or other armour as most most armies that use them already have some armoured spearmen to depict the wealthier warriors. The current Hirdsmen are really lightly equipped for their status though. Did you see I say"some" helmets?They do just need some ...

The king's hirdsmen in the game.Seems just use the unarmoured cavalry unit's model to repaint.It's really so hard to make a new armoured model for hirdsmen?

Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

Well, I guess it does make sense for some of the men in shieldwall to wear helmets. Like 25% would be good. Helmets weren't cheap but they would be the first thing to buy by a warrior if he could afford some more protection. Indeed,they should have some,but most important thing is,in the game the k...

Modern replica and research.Even the rich fyrdsmen could afford mail armor,so why the hirdsmen couldn't have in the game?
