    How did you add schiltrom ability for pikemen?
    Simple replacing ''phalanx'' by ''sciltrom'' in EDU didn't work, so how?

    from what i have studied and read, the Scottish infantry wouldve appeared close to what your Nobles look like in the Lordship of the Isles faction, especially in the grampians, as the north east of Scotland was also gaelic among the common folk. Only nobility wouldve spoken French, but that also changed a bit when the gaelic vassals were brought into the kingdom of Scotland. Only the clan leader and his close family, i.e. sons, would wear the family surcoat. If i were to choose classes for the Kingdom of Scotland, i would have spearmen like the types you have, nobles on horse and some on foot, infantry with hand and a halves (halflang) swords in the scottish fashion (like the Nobles you have in the Isles) then the basic infantry. this mod looks awesome i cant wait til it comes out

    Beautiful work Lord Hamilton and thanks for the effort going into this mod, I am looking forward to it. I just noticed William Wallace. Not sure about the dress but is it possible to give him his legendary claymore? If you plan to make his unit foot soldiers that would be nice.

    Forth, Alba!

    Excellent work!

    And a claymore would be nice, but is it also historical or an invention by Mel Gibson ^^

    The Claymore was a gaelic weapon (as in irish and highlanders) not sure the scots would have used it

    It would be more the Highlanders and some Hebridean/Irishmen that would have used the claymore in the 15th century.

    These documentaries are excellent sources indeed, Lord Hamilton watched those and we could say many info about Scotland will be based upon those documents but it is always interesting to let other fellow members to watch and learn more about history. +rep

    Aye, these documentaries are pretty good, I read Neil Oliver's book on it as well

    I'll be going to the sites of the Battle of Harlaw and the Battle of Inverurie tomorrow, both fit to WotW

    Same scene in italian, my language:
