Any sword types that are NOT in the game?

So I was going to make myself a custom sword and was looking around for a type/shape that wasn't already in the game (talking about ones from that region and time-period). Can't find any yet:smile:! Every one seems to be there that I've seen so far, though I'm no expert so could very well be ones I've missed.

Are there any more obscure ones that were excluded?




For anyone who's interested I've got a pinterest board with a lot of nice images of dark-age swords. Mostly historical stuff (as far as i can tell) but also some pins just for inspiration.

You can probably guess my field of knowledge on this one, but I'll give you some threads I have found and compiled over time that will help give you an idea from the Goidelic side of things (a.k.a the best side of things). But I also found some other stuff. Otherwise the dev's covered most of it tbh. There is always more to dig when it comes to ancient history (see the play on words I did there?? heh heh)

Goidelic/Gaelic Pre-Viking and also used at time of viking invasions.

Anglo-Saxon pre viking design

Couldn't find anything major for Picts, and I can tell you it is due to 2 issues, A. 12 yr olds with red hair become obessed with Celts and then fill the internet with **** filled blogs and comment about "celtic blood" and other goodies, and skew up a proper platform to study things like this. B. The picts go WAYYYY back, like way back, and the internet has always not been the best with specific historical research searching and thus you get results for either ancient Picts (Roman times) or Scots-Gaelic stuff. Shame really, but my overall gut tells me that it would have been a variety of ancient celtic iron working, but more than likely less "proper" swords were contained by the Picts then their Gaelic neighbors or the Anglo Saxons to the south.

You probably already know this, but when it comes  to very nitty gritty historical research and curiosity, which I always encourage, the internet is not very reliable to deliver truthful results. You are best searching for books or paying a visit to that nearly extinct building type, the library. For more accurate info than I or usually anyone else can give you. Sláinte!  :grin:

Any chance that you might remodel some of the swords and axes ? They look clunky and the axes could use some more variants.

EDIT: Peterson Axe Typology:

I'm happy with the stuff that's already in the dlc so I doubt I'll be remodeling existing stuff.

What do the letters/numbers in the coloured boxes mean in that pic btw?
