    Default Medieval Kingdoms Total War : Archbishop-Electorate of Trier (REVAMP)

    Electorate of Trier





    "You friends of Saint Peter, you defenders of the holy Church, who place your mortal bodies in danger against the swords of your enemies on behalf of God and justice. Serve under Saint Peter, and he shall protect you with a host of saints and shields in battle!"
    - Archbishop Albero of Trier


    The Electorate of Trier is most known for the city Trier, which has existed since the 1st century. Trier, like six other Electors, were responsible for voting the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire into office. Throughout the early Middle Ages, Trier's land came mostly from the archdiocese that held only a few cities close to Trier. But, in 1212, Trier was given a charter from Emperor Otto IV that gave the city autonomy from the religious office that was established, and as well raised the city to an Electorate, and its territory to Archbishop-Electorate, an uneasy bond of faith and power.
    For Trier I decided to work the faction into three mostly distinct parts: The first part are the forces known as the Electorate units. These will mostly consist of your standard levy troops, and trained militia troops, which are few and far in between and as a result, their armor and training will be lacking.
    The second part are the Trier units. These units will be your trained and well-armored militia and infantry units that will be coming straight from the Trier itself. They will, without doubt, be your champions of the early and high tier conflicts.
    And finally, the last part is the Elector units, units that have taken heavy inspiration from Bishop's teaching of St. Peter, and use St. Peter as a symbol on quite a bit of their armor. These units will be your heavy late tier units to replace the poor Electorate units of the first and second tier. Their armor will be on par if not possibly better than the Trier units in tier 3, and their training and morale will be almost exact, creating a pretty well-rounded highly lethal set of units.

    Yeah, looks brilliant. The early and mid tiers are especially improved. This is the biggest thing for me in this preview- a marked jump in quality of the earlier tiers of the Western factions.

    The late tier is very good too but I already liked the original version of the late tier a lot. But there are a lot of new assets which look great and I am assuming will impove other late rosters as well.

    Heh yeah, the late tier was nice. They have a lot of uniformity due to me not adding a lot of different armours in other than the gambeson and brigandine. It would look kinda odd if I didn't use all the new items Banskie made in the last two years or so. Especially since brabant and even Lorraine are a lot newer in comparison.

    Yeah, I understand the reason why the Late era was redone too. The new one looks good as well. Could be even bether- will know for sure when in game. It's subjective anyway. The new assets are great addition for sure and the earlier eras are marvelous, finally .

    The new horse armor for the late units looks so great. When will it part of an update?
