    Previews will probaly come once every 2 weeks or once a month so that we can focus on getting the mod done from here on out. Also added a link to the throwing weapon preview in the op.

    Unleash the new Berserker unit card!

    These look pretty good, I would remove the mail coifs (aventails would be more appropriate) and kite shields if your going for late 9th century though. I would also suggest refraining from having the troops dress in faction colors in order to get a really historical look.

    This link I'm posting here is a really good source I'm using in my Attila Dark Ages mods that you guys can use, if you scroll through it they give some nice historical details on the military structures and dress of all the different peoples during this era:

    What you see on that screenshot is mostly late units. Late ones have mixed kite and round shields. We give the units the most color variation we can. But in order not to make the battle gameplay a guessing game of who's the enemy and who's your ally we keep the factional colours, though we do not exclude a possibility of editing the colors in order to make them more "authentic" in the future.
