    Default LAca's Byzantine Heavy Spearmen

    MEDIEVAL II TOTAL WAR:
    PRO DEO ET REGE
    “For God and King”
    LAca's BYZANTINE HEAVY SPEARMEN



    The Amazingly Talented LAca has released his long-anticipated, all-new Byzantine Heavy Spearmen unit! And is kind enough to let us mods use his work!

    Here's what LAca has to say about these fierce soldiers:


    The unit has both spear and sword - in schiltrom mode they use their spear only (even if u alt+attack).
    In normal mode they can use both spear and sword (the latter if u give the alt+attack command). But watch out - if they are attacked (charged) when standing idle they will automatically switch to swords (its a game engine feature, cannot be changed) - it can be a problem when they are attacked by cavalry. To avoid this, give them the normal attack command and they will use their spears.


    BYZANTINE HEAVY SPEARMEN: The byzantine heavy spearmen are elite units armed with long spears and swords - made up of veteran troops and are well equipped. They carry their shields strapped on their backs when in close formation to have both hands free to use their spears. But if needed, they can draw swords and take off the shield from their backs, fighting as heavy sword infantry.

    Again, many, many thanks to LAca for his amazing work!! Be sure to thank him if you cross paths with him!

    I already added them for the next release - which I'd like to get released by the end of the week (hope, hope!).

    They're a nifty little unit and LAca did a fantastic job with them. Notice the shield starts off on their back, but once they switch to sword, they also switch to using the shield. How he did it, I don't know. But LAca has some serious talent!

    Cheers!

    Hehe - they sure are nifty! I wonder how much we'd have to pay him to reskin the entire Byz. lineup.

    I'm holding off starting a new campaign until your next release, so I can play with these babies.

    How to I use them? I have downloaded them but don't know how to create them.
    Do I write "Create_Unit" or go to folders?

    As far as I'm concerned, they're included in this mod.
