You're spoiling us with excellent artwork  :smile:

The map of the world in the Viking Age is particularly interesting.
From Vinland to what might be Iran, or even further east.
 
Very beautiful and well done mod.I play now as Hindefuns the Angle, but in future i want restart a Briton like I did the first time I played.

Maybe if i have a little complaint, i liked to see in the races also Roman-Britons stock. When I play I dislike to be all Briton or all Roman, historically the 2 races bred and mixed into Roman-Britons: for now i solve all doin' a tall Roman (I assume that dad was a Briton and mom Roman or vice versa, then the son has taken strenght by Roman and tallness from Britons) or a strong Briton with a romanized name and manners.

May I live longer to see Roman-Britons came into this marvelous, epic mod? Hope so.

That sword is very 'Arming Sword'-y for a viking, it seems to me.  If it's realistic though, it shows how much swords in Northern Europe changed between Brytenwalda's time period and 1066


If we're sticking with 1066, this painting is just awesome.

Can you source any of those images?  Did you find them online or do you own books?  I'd like to aquire whatever books they may be from.  I own almost all of the Osprey books covering the late-Roman to Norman Age but I don't recognize any of those beautiful illustrations.  Thanks!
 
Seven of the last images are from the Norwegian book "Vikinger I Krig"
I've got it myself. Great book, but I fear it does not have an English translation yet.

Edit:
I found a few illustrations from the same guy. Anders Kvåle Rue is his name.

Oh thanks for the info!  Not only is the book unavailable in English, the Amazon website doesn't even carry it!  I'll have to search it out online.  I will also look for the Anders Kvale Rue images online.  If you know of any more books depicting warriors from 400-1000AD, feel free to post some titles.  I can't get enough of this stuff!
