Neither. Those are the Swordmasters of Hoeth, not Warriors of Hoeth :D
They will be available in the Struggle for the Old World campaign.

No haha, the tower of hoeth was not built during the sundering era, so there were not swordmasters :)

Hi guys, one question to Kolwen.
Why don't you join the team of Rage of Dark Gods (or inverse) since you've the same purpose? Two talented teams in one could be awesome. 2 time faster and 2 time better.
I thing that is a kind of wasting time to have two parallel teams working on the same final project. (they are actually working on the Sundering too).

We started The Sundering as a SUB-mod for Call of Warhammer, but the lack of support and the bad manners from the CoW team even when we asked for the most insignificant help urged us to leave their mod and start from scratch. This is why there are two Warhammer mods for Medieval 2 Total War instead of one.

I must second that. I read both TWC an SICH forums, and the arrogance is astounding. A pity...

The Swordmasters of Hoeth are perhaps the greatest martial artists in the world of Warhammer, warrior-ascetics who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of obtaining perfect balance between mind and body, between the cultivation of wisdom and the study of war.

For thousands of years, Swordmasters have been the guardians of the White Tower of Hoeth, the high temple to the Elven God of Wisdom and the greatest training ground for mages in all of Ulthuan, standing like a beacon in the heart of mystic Saphery. Over hundreds of years of meditation and training, the Swordmasters cultivate their minds and bodies into a perfect instrument of war, favoring the Elven greatsword above all else. These double-edged and wickedly-sharp blades are a full six-feet in length, yet the Swordmaster is so skilled in their use that they can wield these swords as fast as an ordinary warrior might wield a one-handed blade. It is said that the Swordmasters can fight in complete darkness, guided by the sound of their opponent's breath, that they can cut a candle in half without disturbing the flame or even deflect arrows in midair, and that many a foe barely registers their swords leaving their scabbards.

“Enlightenment is achieved by mastering not only the body, but the soul. Only then can a warrior truly understand the value of life, and why it should be protected at all costs.” - Belannaer of Hoeth, Bladelord of the White Tower.
