    They are certainly less changed than some other factions, but I can't agree that they're below par with the rest of the mod (and I didn't create them). I've always thought the FATW Rohirrim were rather good, which is exactly why their models are largely unchanged here.

    What would you have liked to have seen then?

    Webba I know, when these units were made, we were both around

    @Vhaelor, instead of the pajama-like armor the T1 & T2 Spears, Outriders and Bows of Eotheod are wearing (and formerly belonged to the Rohan low-tier units), I would rather have their lower tier units keep the less sophisticated and expensive "woodmen" textures of the T1&T2 Beorning unit sport in FATW.

    Apart from the fact that they are more eye-pleasing to me , I think that they make them look more like ad-hoc assembled part-timers rather than professional soldiers.

    You'll notice I didn't disagree with the 'old' part either

    Honestly, that's a very easy change for the T1&2 units and if it makes you happy (and given what I suspect is an absence of strong opinion from anyone else ) I can go ahead and change them as you suggest.

    edit: Changes all done I'm not updating the preview though, you'll just have to imagine how much better they look now

    I think that's supposed to be a gambeson. I actually like that it's represented in the game, seeing as it is so underrated in most games and fiction (including LotR, unfortunately), although these vests are shorter than gambesons usually were in history, AFAIK.
    Regarding the design, maybe you're right about them looking too Rohan-specific, though.
    What I'd like to see more in this game - and others - is (wooden) shields covered in fabric or leather, rather than bare wooden planks (except perhaps for some cheap, low-tier levies).

    Wow, this is what our GFs feel when they are the only ones with a strong opinion on a matter, so we end up doing stuff according to their liking?!?

    I expected something more fulfilling TBH

    I suspect they enjoy it more than we do - I have so much experience 'choosing' where to go for dinner at this point that I almost always get it right on the first try.

    I really do hate being the wet blanket here, but I have to confess I am not a fan of the use of the white horse on green for the Eotheod.

    While they're the ancestors of the Rohirrim, seeing orl's personal banner be the faction symbol centuries before he's even born makes the world feel smaller to me.
    It is such a quiet thing, to fall. But far more terrible is to admit it.

    That's fair enough, it's more for time saving purposes than anything else (ditto the Gondor, Harad, Khand, etc being the same). Technically we have changed it though - it's now a white horse head (ala the Rhovanion DoM symbol) on green. Very similar, I know, but that is also the point.
