Welcome everyone!
This is the mounted Version of my Imperial Guard unit. This mod adds the mounted "Imperial Guard Knights (Lance & Shield)" unit to the Empire faction. These heavily armoured knights have the ability to crush the empire's enemies in a devastating charge while inspiring and strengthening nearby allied troops.

The dismounted version can be found here: Imperial Guard

I hope you enjoy playing this mod but let me know if you spot any mistakes and of course i welcome any constructive feedback to help me understand what's good and where things could be improved.

Any chance you're planning on adding this (+INF) to WH3?

Any plans to make a warhammer 3 version of this mod and the grand order of the reikguard?

Their model is so cool, their Aura is so useful and their damage is so weak for 5 tier heavy cavalry

Does this mod still works with the lastest updates? And does the rest of your Grand Order of the Reiksguard + imperial guard?
