Ladies and gentlemen (and Tim Schafer), the wait is finally over! I present to you, a playable Hair Metal Militia faction! This mod replaces the entirety of Ironheade with Glam Metal inspired Hair Metal Militia units and adds Lionwhyte as a playable avatar.

This was my first attempt at creating a mod for Brutal Legend, and it came out to be better than I expected it to be. I've only seen a few people mod this game so far, and wanted to share something of my own in hopes of inspiring its fans to create something of their own.

The mod has been completed and its download is available under the "files" section. I may tweak a few more things and release a better version later on.

Special thanks to B Dawg, check out out his guide if you'd like to learn more about modding Brutal Legend:

Oh man I always wanted to play as this guy. I love him to bits. So cool. To bad I can't kill Eddie Riggs in a Stage Battle as him. Lul

I agree, he kind of is. Although the instant solos make up for that weakness, he only has 3 basic solos. This is actually how he exists in the game, and how the ai controls him in the single player campaign. Adding new spells is possible, but I'm not planning on updating this mod at the moment. I may do that later on sometime in the future. Thank you for your suggestion!

Goddamn this looks awesome. Glad people haven't forgotten this hidden gem, its already been about 10 years since it's been released, and now it's starting to get modded, keep up the good work!

How did you change eddie's model and anim? couldn't figure it out while modifying man_trival~h and ~p. I was trying to change eddie in the story from well eddie to divicoulus. but it had only changed the anims. ( anims = animations. ) and also i wanted to know if its possible to change units to alternate ones, like headbangers are switched with grave diggers. Thanks, for the mod and it's amazing how you were able to do that.

You can do that by modifying the all.proto file, which is located inside the 00Startup.~h and 00Startup.~p files. I haven't touched Brutal Legend for months, so I don't quite remember every string of code I replaced for it to work, but in order to change Eddie to Doviculus you'll need to search for the line that starts with "Prototype A01_Avatar :" and replace everything after that (until the next "Prototype" word) with the corresponding data starting from "Prototype D01_Avatar :". This will make the game think that its loading Eddie, but in reality it'll be loading Doviculus instead, including his animations and items. As for changing the units to different ones, I'm pretty sure its possible, but I've never done that so I don't know the exact way of doing it, sorry. Hope that helps!
