Grand Order of the Reiksguard

Description
"Reiksguard Knights, your Emperor is calling! Death or glory await us, but if we die, we will die as warriors, with swords in hand, and there can be no better death than that."
—Kurt Helborg, The Reiksmarshal.



Do not use with my Sigmar's Heirs mod
This mod content is already in it.

Updated the mod with new closer to tabletop models, I hope you'll like it. It also brings the Reiksguard textures to 2K / Game 2 standards thanks to ^1Shep^8ardov.

Though known mostly for their expertise in cavalry warfare, the Reiksguard are normally divided into a mounted arm known as the Reiksguard Knights, or the Imperial Cavalry, and an infantry arm, that they called the Imperial Foot.

This mod aims to give Reikland all the Reiksguard units from the lore :
  • Imperial Foot (Sword and Shield) - They now replace the Carroburg Greatsword as the Reikland Elector Count Unit
  • Imperial Foot (Halberds) - Anti-Large variant, they are available at a new building level of the Palace Reiksguard
  • Imperial Foot (Greatsword) - Armor-Piercing variant, they are available at a new building level of the Palace Reiksguard
  • Reiksguard Inner Circle - A Demigriph Knights RoR available at the Palace Reiksguard

For more uniqueness a few tweaks have been made :
  • Reiksguard units now have a new unique Skill
  • As one of the best trained order of the Empire, all cav now have the lance formation
  • Imperial Foot (Halberds) have access to an Imperial Phalanx formation
  • Zintler's Reiksguard is now a melee cavalry, it seemed more fighting as they are meant to ambush
  • Carroburg Greatswords are now a RoR available at lvl7 with a last stand formation
  • To prevent Deathballs, Reiksguard untis are capped, that cap can be improved by building Reiksforts and the Reiksguard palace. EC unit is not included in the cap.

This mod has been made at first as a request of the community (yes looking at you fillder), and is meant as an addition to my next Empire mod adding Kurt Helborg and Ludwig Schwarzhelm.
Units are balanced for vanilla, feel free to comment if it feels off.

I guess it was removed by the author, I don’t follow submods

What happened to the no unit cap submod? I get an error every time I click on it.

Xoudad  [author] Sep 11, 2022 @ 10:11pm

I wonder if, mostly for shits and giggles, Zintler's Reiksguard could inherit the over-charge ability (Murderous Charge) that the Knights of the Brazen Throne brought into WH3. Kind of a fitting way to reestablish the theme of shock cavalry dominance, and it's a really fun effect to play around with! Perhaps granting it to them as part of Hans Zintler's skill tree line?
