Well, hopefully now the DLC is stable and there is only minor tweaking to do we will have the source code with 1.04. And, 1.04 likely sometime in February?
Don't want to get my hopes up about this.

Would people be interested in a 'cosmetic' release? As in, they'd just function as low level armour (like tunics), without the ritual equipment bonus. Though you could change it to a higher armour value, with the 'ritual bonus' being an excellent weight-to-armour ratio.

Or I can just wait until we get the mod source code, whenever that is. I'll be doing a proper release then either way.

Depends on how much work it would be. Basically if it was decent light armor with no weight or stamina penalty it would almost be as good.

I am still sticking by my February prediction on source code.


As for Book of Kells, it  may be a little off. From the Western Hebrides and thus more Irish than Pict, but the scroll work and animal representations are rather unique and could be a Pict influence. Columba definitely had monks among the Picts, and their headquarters would have been Iona too pre Viking Invasion.

Wouldn't be much work at all, I've got all the lods set up and item entries created for testing purposes.  I've got 9 male and 1 female bodies created,  maybe half need a few little tweaks to finish off the texture.

About the book of kells, was mostly going to use it for the knot/scroll stuff so no worries there.



Does anyone know how the game selects troop armour? For me it seems to favour items listed earlier in the inventory, but can't be sure.

In Warband I never noticed it favor anything. If you have enough troops it seems totally random based on the number. Did a test on Khergit Veteran Horse Archers once to see how many got javelins and how many bows. It came out exactly 3:1 which was the ration of them. I also noticed that the armor was the same, though I was not specifically measuring it.


Now, in non-combat representations I have seen it favor the first in the queue, but then that does not matter.

Looks great, I'm still waiting for a naked mod.
If you want to make one I can give you the photoshop files with the paint layers separated to add on top.

Another WIP


Has anyone tried it out yet? I'd quite like to know if it's working as intended, all lods in the right place and so on. Seems fine, but it's hard to tell from only my perspective.

Good Job Sir!, would love to see more pics of picts.
Cheers! Do you mean of the models or in-game shots?


Old-school Byrtenwalda style

And the sleave one finished. I may switch it back to one arm only, what do you guys think?

Together in game.

I think it's better like this, in the two arms :smile:

Great work mate, I'll try it when I finish my exams!

Cheers madrush, that reminds me I have to look into making some pictish faces. No idea how you go about making WB faces though.
