I am trying to port all my mods, but it takes time. If all goes well, they will be released within this month.

@Lazy Sceptic Actually the scythe-weilding units in this game all have armour-piercing. So, I just kept the same philosophy as I always try to stick close to vanilla.

I somewhat feel like scythes are more appropriate as anti infantry weaposn than armor piercing-weapons. I mean, logically they're pretty useless as weapons, but if you consider they're actually used for mowing down swaths of grass, as opposed to chopping down trees or whatever, it kind of feels like it could be a weak weapon with an area of effect, to better reflect how it's used IRL. Reaping through infantry like grass, kind of.

Yes, nothing major, I just fixed the variantmesh file that was reverted to an older version when I updated the mod for the Bretonnia patch.

@The Running Man I'm thinking if I should make an Elf and a Dwarf hero-type for the Empire, so we can have all 4 heroes (including the Wizard that is already available). I think it would be cool to use them in battle. Very RPG-like :)
