We are incredibly grateful for all the wonderful feedback we have to continue to receive regarding our most recent update! A lot of you may have also seen or heard about a rather fantastic feature being added in Bannerlord 1.8, but if not we are happy to announce that we will finally be able to look into custom skins!

This means that, while it won’t be immediate, in time we can start looking into filling out the Old World with the Great Greentide and more, so keep an eye out for that!

With all that said, we have a few goodies to show off for this monthly update starting with the 3D team:

Our warrior priests will look all the more deadly with a new set of shields!

Pistoliers now have their second unique uniform!

Players will also now be able to find a nice shiny new Scythe to reap with.

We also have a fantastic new visual for our Bright Wizard Staffs, with animated flames. This is not the only update to existing pieces we have in store for you. As numerous items have to be reworked and reimplemented we are also taking time to add even more to the existing world we created!

From our environment team we also have a grim new scene for our Necromancers and Dark Magisters to inhabit. A lair for all manner of evil magics to take place.

As mentioned at the start of this update, our excitement and focus are on moving our mod onto Bannerlord version 1.8, as such our coding team is focused on making our mod playable on this latest version so that we can start digging into the new features! We’ll of course update as we go.


The lore department continue to fill the world with all the knowledge needed to fall madly in love with the Warhammer fantasy world! That being said, don’t hesitate to let us know if anything needs to be looked into! We look forward to any feedback.

Game Design:

While the engineers over at game design are focused on balancing, there are also some other interesting ideas being cooked up and there will be more to talk about in the future!

We are still looking for Sound Engineers/Artists, 3D artists, Sceners and C# Coders. If you are interested in any of these roles, or any of the others, feel free to head over to our #applications channel on the discord! Everyone is completely welcome.
