    Awesome.

    Now, if youre looking for more inspiration, whats really lacking in game right now are helmets inspired by those in the east, specially Rus’ stuff.

    This was a quite common helmet:

    And some other that i think are heavily influenced by Viking style:


    This is druzhina (since they are all mounted this is later, like i dunno 13th 14th century, before that they would mostly be on foot):

    The reason why i love Russian gear is because they are a beautiful mix of everything; you have chain mails from the vikings as the basic gear, you have lamellar items from the steppe (Mongols, steppe nomads etc) and you have scale armors (i believe from Byzantium). And all of it can be quite colorful.

    This is called kolovrat and was on Slavic shields very early on (like first millenia ad) if you add any Slavic/eastern gear it should be on shield(s):

    Note however i believe it is considered a swastika of sorts, so there could be political stuff, i dunno. I think you guys are German and i know Germany has some laws against Nazi swastika, if this also falls into that category plox delete it.

    I have a lot of Rus reference in my backlog, but am still holding back on that in case of a future expansion of the game.
    At least that was my initial plan. By now I think it’s possible that some Rus gear may make it into the game in form of named items.
    But – as always – I wont promise anything :)

    Yup some eastern flavored named items would be cool. In particular byzantine (lots of scales on armors and helmets and pointy helmets) and Russian (a mix of chainmail and scale and lamellar with plenty of colors, should also break the “metal” feel of armors you spoke of earlier).

    But in any case im sure you know what works the best. No pressure, just throwing random ideas at you :)

    it seems necessary to use this opportunity and to ask Paul to make as much as possible the unique double-edged axes – not historically, not practical… but it’s so beautiful )

    Imagine charging into a group of zombies carrying such an axe shouting “zaaaaaaaaa rodinu!111oneoneeleven”.

    Glorious.

    Or…

    Even better…

    My inner Spaniard would still love to see a morion, but my inner Spaniard also wants me to make a group of Battle Brothers called “El Tercio” and go marching across the world map with nothing but swords, pikes, and crossbows.

    Also, do you have any art available for unique weapons we might find yet? Such as unique two-handed weapons, etc.?

    I am in a pretty generous mood, so I might actually consider :) I did some research on the topic but the only historical double headed battle axes I found were from Indo Persian Origin and mostly 17 century or even later. Apparently there also were such axes in use as ceremonial weapons in ancient Greece.
    Do you have any more reference for me? I would at least need some sort of historical example.
    Heres an Indo Persian Axe from the 19th century:

    Yesterday I started working on named weapons for all the different categories. First off we have some spears and a rough version of some Billhooks.
    The Billhook basic skill will be switched from “impale” to “strike” by the way. We did some balancing changes on all polearms, but more info on that will follow in a blog post.
    Cheers!
