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.
