This is a mod for experienced mount and blade players only, all the armys are being revamped in a world of fantasy i have created, its about a land called ironside, with a rich history which i will post later, but its lands consist of professional armies and lords with great hosts to free citys with milita armies.
So Far i have created seven armies in full and will post screenshots soon. I am Finished the map also. So im now working on creating the weapons and armour for the last two factions.


1. Trollack (Finished)
2. Rebela (Finished)

Both of these factions were at one time part of the same army and empire and so have similarities in units, but there are alot of differences aswell. Both favour large shields and heavy armour. Trollack prefers brute force weapons like the battle rod and large sledge hammers. Rebela prefers the clean cut of a blade so they have some of my unique weapons that I haven't named and some others like Chinese spears + pole arms. Because the time difference between the split of the empire and the current date of the game, Trollack now use's crossbows and Rebela still uses Bows.

3. Pella (Finished)

Pella has a mix of all units is the most diverse faction in the game. They have long swords, crossbows, naginata, some more of my own unique weapons. Also at the end off all there troop trees they have special Golden warriors, these troops are the guardian's of the king and so are some of the best troops in the game.

4. People of Dune (Finished)

(Spoiler alert, don't read this entry if you want some surprises in game, but i can tell you they are desert people)
Dune is the desert lands of the south that the kings of Pella considered to be worthless, But now a power is rising there, There army will be mostly horse and camel warriors and small collection of infantry. Bows and javelin and axes, swords and some crazy weapons I though off.

5. Fredans (Finished)

The Fredans are the most backward faction in the game, they have isolated themselves from the world, and so there weapons are still made of bronze, bronze broad swords and large round shields and spears and Bows.

6. The Northern Alliance

The Northern Alliance is the combined forces of the Coastal city of Dulo and the Highland city of Greenstone, There armies are were much militia troops, so there weak to began with but there elite troops pack a serious punch, There armies consist of (Greenstone) Pikes, axes and archers (Dulo)swords, crossbows, and mercenary troops from distant lands.

7. Summerset
8. Perthshire (Finished)
9. Kelashin (Finished)

These are three great cities on the riverlands whose leaders have broken off from Pella in recent years and declared themselves kings. They are all small factions but they all have very Strong Calvary, and those with the strongest Calvary have the weakest infantry. They armies are similar the 14th century European armies, some have crossbows some archers and heavy mail knights and others heavy lancers. You will have to either fight them or join them to know how good their troops are, or what they are.

Hello M+B fans,sorry the mod is taking so long i have been vbusy at work,so it got put in the back burner, but i am back on track now. So things i added over the weekend.Finished the map.Finished another faction. so i now have all the factions added in and functioning properly in the game.I have chnged some core M+B things,
Depending on where you are in Ironside decidies what troops you can recruit from villages + towns, these are not faction troops.
Faction troops are recruited from castles, either inf or horse.
Fixed the faction relationships, ansestry gets all messed up when you add new factions.

Not bad for two days work me thinks.

Will hopefully have Beta in 2 weeks provided Work stays quiet.

And heres a sneak peak at Dulo armour.
