    WOW! :clap:

    Another interesting feature would be to allow the horsemen to dismount their horses either before the battle or even during the battle. Surely, it will be hard or impossible to do.

    Yes, it is an organic armour. Apparently, in the archaic Iberian period, they were used in combination with the bronze cardiophylakes by the champions.

    In fact, Lusitanio also added generic universal traits for the wives of all the factions, so now we will be able to know our family members's wives's wealth and personality.

    Similar shape and organic nature, that's how the vase of Llíria translates into the Scutarii armor.

    That could be an armour or a tunic, it is hard to say with certainty.
