Ever wondered why there were no formations available for any units, despite most races being disciplined well enough to use advanced tactics and thus formations?

Now you are able to give most units the order to get into formations of your choice and as you would expect, they also get a bit better in combat by doing so!

Formation Availability

These formations are a fully optional extra bit of micromanagement that gives you useful bonuses if you utilize them, but if you activate this mod and choose to not use them yourself, most AI factions will use some of them against you to provide more of a challenge.

What formations are available to you depends on the race you play as well as the individual unit, so for example most of the main Empire and Dwarf units are capable of several formations each, while Vampires have fewer and only available for their more advanced minions and most Orcs are only capable of getting into one very basic formation.

For most core game units to be able to use formations, you will require at least medium unit size in your graphics settings. If the unit is very small by default or lost many men, certain formations may be not possible until you increase the unit size or the unit has recovered. All my tests whether units are capable of supporting a formation at all are done based on fresh units and Ultra unit size.

Detailed Mod Information

There are 10 base formations, some of which have slightly different bonuses if a unit uses a shield. Regiments of Renown can use all of the formations that their base unit can use.

Currently, the bonuses applied to all units using the same type of formation are equal across races. I'm looking into refining this further to potentially give each race some more unique bonuses.

Details about each formation can be found in the discussion thread below.

Compatibility & Known Issues

This mod should be compatible with all other mods.

These formations are not actually made for Warhammer (they are leftovers from Rome II or Attila) and thus are not optimized at all for it, so some bugs entirely expected. More than half of the existing Rome II formations either did nothing or were broken and causing crashes, so these are the ones that still work mostly as intended.

⚫ Ring of Steel WILL CRASH THE GAME if you use it in an insufficiently spaced area, such as tight city alleys, near houses, rocks, trees or other impassable objects - so only use it on open plains.
⚫ The outermost models of units that use the Iron Guard / Wall of Bone formation will go into a "T-form" when idle, which looks weird but is just a visual bug - they become normal when under attack.
⚫ Do not remove this mod mid-campaign, it will most likely crash save games that were played with it.
