MachiavelloTW @ Swiss Militia units - work in progress

hi @Joeriig,
units affiliated to certain factions will often have similar colour codes - this however will reflect as much as possible historical hints. For this swiss units, we have just followed several chroniclers of the time, in which is very clear which unit pertains to which canton based on factional colouring and items/standards they carry.

@kuroiwa-san, in order:
1- Piombino will be an independent state (held by rebels);
2- Ancona will be under Francesco Sforza in 1441, but will revolt in 1443;
3- There will be a single swiss state (the Confederacy) but with canton recruitable troops. To be in the limits, only 5 variations will be available, for the following cantons, based on colour variations Uri (yellow/black); Bern/Glarus (red/black); Schwytz/Unterwalden (white/red); Lucerne/Zug/ Zürich (white/azure) and generic swiss (Basel/Fribourg/Appenzell in white/black)
4- Boccanegra is a surname available for the genoese faction, although there will be no member of that family, as the last known members of the family died in 1477, and since 1401 no one of them had any political relevance whatsoever (source: Soprintendenza archivistica per la Liguria, Archivi.beniculturali.it )

Joeriig thanks!
indeed late medieval/early renaissance units, items and history is often neglected, as it is quite messy and hard to follow, especially in a place of shifting alliances like Italy...

@kuroiwa-san, there is Piombino, but we will not have an independent piombinese state, because of M2TW engine limitations.
However, there is already in place a chain of events for the succession war of the Orsini in the 1440s and the 1447 war with Naples and Florence.

@Guest, yes I have considered that - but unfortunately M2TW does not allow a large number of factions.
There will be Swiss and German mercenaries, but maybe not landsknechts - indeed, those are of a slightly later timeframe.

Well, this is not an AOE III mod, so it will still have a folder to be unzipped in the /mods directory of M2TW.
I am afraid I can't create an installer, as the .exe could be recognised by antiviruses as "suspicious".

Cshelton I had a very busy time at work - will try to finish working on the Austrian cavalry units, and then prepare other previews. Possibly will do a preview in this weekend for austrian officers and standardbearers.

hi rafasanchez0206, i do not think it will be possible to implement this in Warband. Who knows, maybe it could be used in Bannerlord when it will come out...

Of course, Hungary will be part of it; and it will feature the civil war between the party of Wladislaw III Jagiello and the Habsburg-backed Ladislaus the posthumous, the all-powerful Jon Hunyadi and his son Mathias.
Hungarians will have access to a very diverse roster of units from the Balkans, ranging from Vlachs to Poles, from Szekely to Serbians, from Czechs to Croatians - and obviously they will have the Black Army in a later stage.

ivanhoe95 i'm seriously rolling on the floor laughing!
btw, I used a blue dress as in some manuscripts Austrian ducal troops are portrayed with blue, red and green mises.

Gabrilic21, I perfectly know that mod and is a great mod - I played and loved it - but is set in another timeframe and has another scope. Our aim is to portray the state of affairs in Italy before that period, when small states clashed continuously and new weapons and tactiques were experimented on the battlefield, before the "big players" like France, Spain and the Hapsburgs come to conquer.

hi Gabrilic21,
there will be no Cesare Borgia, as the game starts in 1441 and will continue just before his arrival - ideally, the player should end the game before. There will be however Pope Callixtus III, or Alfons de Borja, the uncle of Rodrigo.

MachiavelloTW @ Campaign map preview - Marquisate of Este

A ruling family alone does not rule by itself: so we have several other noble houses who are interwined in the family tree of the House of Este, each with his CoA and the explanation of who they were, their allegiances and so on. All the information are historically correct.
Here we see the Montecuccoli, a small and lesser family that will bore the famous Raimondo.
