    Default Various Armors, Reinforcements and Gadgets (VARG) - a submod for DAC 1.2. (28.2 -FINAL UPDATE!!)

    Greetings

    This submod seeks to "improve" and give various units from most factions a visible armor-upgrade. Originally started as an Dorwinion-only improvement, I have since expanded into more factions, which will be revealed soon.
    I'm not really good at introducing what I've been doing, so without further a-do, here's some pretty pictures:

    DORWINION
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Dorwinion - Basically, I was a bit disappointed when I first looked at Dorwinions units, so I decided to spruce them up. I went for an east-meets-west vibe (Oriental Gold from Rhn, Slavic/norse patterns and styles from Dale and Rhovanion) and looking from above, this, I think, creates an "evolution" in armor style, from Dale over Dorwinion towards Rhn. Their inspiration from each other should be more apparent.

    I think that the dorwinion spearmen should have larger shields like pavises or kite shields just a thought.

    Yeah, I see what you mean, more akin to those of the crossbowmen and the axeguard, right? I'm no expert unfortunately, and everytime i've tried replacing their shields, I got it wrong... But I'll see what I can do about it.

    Those are some good-looking units, the Elven upgrade for the Thorn Swordsmen is my absolute favourite.

    Definitely like your Elven-path version of the Thorn Bladesmen. My one tiny criticism however is the golden round shield doesn't quite seem to fit in with the purple and grey colouring of the rest of the unit. A different shield might be preferable.

    Dorwinion strikes me as rather Byzantine...

    Just a suggestion

    I think Dorwinion horse armour should be colored with gold like their troops armour, and maybe with a bit purple dash on its black part.

    Yeah, giving Dorwinion some different horse-armor is not a bad idea, but I don't think gold is the way to go (it'll just look like Rhn's horses). I'll see if I can do something about it, but it's not a high priority for me.

    well done Goldfish I love the designs for the brotherhood units they look like the old khand units from .52 but with some Ottoman influences.
