A modification for Mount and Blade: Warband, set in the universe of George R. R Martins "A Song of Ice and Fire". Also known as the popular HBO TV-series "Game of Thrones".
Poor horsie can't see ****
Well in the time period GoT is set that's the point
The point is for horses to have poor vision in battle? Is that what your saying lol?
First off, the decrease in vision isn't as bad as you'd think. The holes are pretty big, and allow for a reasonable view. While I don't know which armour they based their design off, they obviously took it from an actual historical set of armour. Here's a somewhat less restricted version: Static.robbreport.com
Secondly, yes, there is a point to restricting what the horse can see. The most common and obvious form of this is the use of blinders. These prevent the horse from seeing to the rear and, in some cases, the side, which drastically lowers the chance of them being distracted or spooked by something coming up on their side or rear.
Now, whether there's any point to limiting a horse's forward vision depend son whether you're in the camp that says that horses aren't stupid and won't run blindly into a shiny wall of spearpoints or if you're in the camp that says that warhorses were trained to ignore their fear and just flat out try to murder everyone in front of them.
Mostly, though, I think coverings over the eyes were done to increase protection and probably did have draw back sin battle, because there are plenty of 16th century horse armours without them.
Well, yes, that's exactly what he's saying.
Are these the cavalry that Robb Stark completely annihilates?
The most epic picture yet.
Are these shields in version 2.1.1? Because I've been playing for a while kicking Lannister ***, and I haven't seen them at all
Nah, they arent in this version, probably coming with 2.2
