  1. Re: The Hammer of Gaul Reveal [Work In Progress] Main Thread

    Hi, I've got some suggestions and questions.

    Yes, wearing or not aketons under mail in 9-11th century is inconcusive (although some facts suggest that It wasn't), but my main suggestion applies to soft armour as primary defence - lack of It in...

    Why do you think that detailed illustrations aren't solid evidence? With lack of findings better will be only time machine - but It is impossible.

    Probably It will not be difficult - there are body models without padding, so they can be used ale for medium class soldiers not only mob.

    The question is how powerful were 11th century crossbows.

    What do you think about power of 11th crossbow comparing to bows? What about crossbow powerstorke - I find somewhere that early Western crossbows had longer powerstoke than later, but I still don't...

    It seems really strange... I'm waiting for video with whole battle, cause system seems interesting.
  17. Sticky: Re: The Great Conflicts: Videos [Magyars promo video released].

    I like high defensive values and prolonged battles. Casualties seems far to high - it will be more historicaly accurate with more taken prisoners than casualties (relativy low morale).

    Is It possible to use your mod for testing my new battle system? I mean sharing units you've done (or at least two rosters) which I will test in custom battles.
