    Default Tribes from the Coasts, Forests and Steppes of Sarmatia

    Hello,

    this is my newest unitmod.

    This time i worked on the tribes of Aestii, Anartes, Catiaroi and finally Budini.

    I. The Aestii:

    Tacitus desribed the Aestii as following:

    Upon the right of the Suebian Sea the Aestian nations reside, who use the same customs and attire with the Suebians; their language more resembles that of Britain. They worship the Mother of the Gods. As the characteristic of their national superstition, they wear the images of wild boars. This alone serves them for arms, this is the safeguard of all, and by this every worshipper of the Goddess is secured even amidst his foes. Rare amongst them is the use of weapons of iron, but frequent that of clubs. In producing of grain and the other fruits of the earth, they labour with more assiduity and patience than is suitable to the usual laziness of Germans.

    Because of the fact, that the Aestii lived at the coast of the Baltic Sea and spoke a different language, most historians assume, that they were probable a protobaltic/baltic tribe. They know iron, which they imported, but still use more bronze objects. They were part of the westbaltic culture of cairns, which was influenced by the lusatian culture.

    III. The Catiaroi:

    The Catioaroi were one of the three main tribes of the Scythae and had very close trading and cultural relationships to the greek polis at the Black Sea. A golden comb, which was found in a sycthian tomb near of Solokha, show a sycthian noblemen fighting with an armour in greek style.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solokha

    So i decided to give them and the Royal Sycthae two hellenizised units.

    IV. The Budini or Budinoi

    Herodot described the Budinoi in his "Historiae" as "light-eyed and red-haired" and living by hunting in their thick forests. The Budinoi lived after his description probably at the middle course of the Volga.

    Because of this many scholars concluded, that the Budinoi were a finno-ugric tribe, the ancestors of the today Udmurts and Komi. I agree with that theory after looking at many pictures of the today Udmurts and Komi with redhair and bright eyes.

    The finno-ugric tribes of this time were part of the Ananino Culture. They used spears, swords, knives, bow and arrow and were heavily influenced by the sycthians and the eastern steppe cultures of sibiria.

    Some pictures of a Finno-Ugric Warrior and two noblemen of the sibirian Sargat Culture:

    All screenshots were made, while using Avetis great Armoured Horses Mod and CIU East and CIU West, which include ACR- Alii Colores Romae from Demokritos. I can only recommend you for the best graphical experience to use them too.

    The Stats are developed on Vanilla stats and should fit perfect to Vanilla.

    This is a semihistorical, but historic plausible mod, based on Vanillastyle.

    I tried to make it historical to my knowledge as possible.

    You will have to use an All factions playable-Mod to use this units by yourself.

    I would thank:

    -CA for the vanilla game and the assembly kit
    -Sebidee for his great modding tutorial
    - BoyaWho? for some of his unit icons.

    -Ahiga/LoB-Team for padded armour textures

    -Avetis/CIU-Team for armour, helmets, shields, tunics (without Avetis Budini-Reskin would not have been possible, thank you!)

    -Dontfearme22 for armour, helmets, shields

    -The_Germans_are_coming for arm-armour, armour, pelts and helmet textures.


    If you like my mod, please rate.

    Great job, Marcus_Iunius! Certainly adds interest to these factions. Wish I could do the same with ease. There are some sides, particularly in Africa and Arabia, that I'd like to make similar changes to, but haven't gotten the time to learn the modding technique for yet.

    But the uniform colours you are displaying here do not come from your mod or any other mod that you mention, do they?

    Shame on me!

    I donīt turn CIU East and CIU West off, which include ACR - Alii Colores Romae from you, while making screenshots.

    I add it to the mod-description.
