But the templars' shield and flags were wrong.
What about these templars' shields?

No,still wrong,they should use their historical pattern shield like this,and also the flags on their lances.



There is nothing wrong with using the red cross on white shields, both shield types are recorded in the pictorial sources.

Templars, meh, the Knights of St. John of the Hospital are still around. Bosworth must have been the proverbial near run thing. I think you could do a neat campaign with the Catalan company.

I am certainly looking forward to the English longbowmen of their heyday, the men of Crécy and Azincourt. I wonder how they will be changed from the high medieval longbowmen. I suppose they will be more suited to hand-to-hand fighting.


I suspect the English longbows will be able to place stakes to protect themselves from cavalry.

In most of sources they mainly use the black&white pattern shields.

I'm looking for something involving fortifications, Crusades (of course) and more classics but please add a feature or two with every DLC, not only different armies.
In Ancients I felt like having nice armies but not a lot of, say barriers or similar stuff.
Concussus surgo.

The main differences come from the different troop types and combinations. Also field fortifications - which aren't used much in the base game, but will be used increasingly in the later part of the period, along with stakes for longbowmen in the second half of the 100 Years War.

You can paint your Templar shields as you like using Paint.net eg. I like this pattern.

-Black army of Matthias Corvinus of Hungary;
-Genoese superior crossbowmen;
-Venetian heavy infantry;
-Almogavars (maybe the Catalan company);
-some unique Balkan units for diversity;
-of course the military orders, not only the three most popular, but like knights of Santiago etc. :)

still having too much fun with the current version to worry about that, but French and English forces in the Hundred Year's War and the War of the Roses is what I am most looking forward to in the future.

I can't wait to play the Ottoman army of the fifteenth century. Ever since I read Ismail Kadare's book The Siege it's been one of my favourite historical armies, it's so colourful and has so many specialized units and auxiliaries.

I would love sieges, but they may be hard to represent well. However, they formed a major part of medieval warfare, and they could make for cool mini campaigns (or parts of a campaign), with defenders sallying out, or besiegers trying to fend off reinforcements.
Regarding armies, I too would love the other religious military orders, then English longbowmen and Swiss pikemen.

Looking forward to more western infantry types myself. Flemish heavy weapons units, as well as the bideaux and maybe also routieres.

Being spaniard myself, I would like to see not only almogávares, but the whole Reconquista, with christian spanish vs. muslim sultanates. And oh yeah, a El Cid campaign, switching sides and allegiances.

But I'm curious too about indian, timurid and other eastern army lists

Shameless plug then. Check our mod that adds 11th-13th century Eastern armies to the game:
