Post news RSS Roar of Conquest: Kingdom of Denmark Roster

Detailed description of the Kingdom of Denmark roster.

Posted by on

Greetings! Today I will covering the stats and availability of the Danish roster in Roar of Conquest, overhaul mod of Medieval II. This article should help those who are curious to have a better understanding of how Denmark's roster will perform in battle and when certain units will become available in the campaign.

Note: The stats you see here have been updated for Roar of Conquest: The Late Middle Ages VIII. Now onto the details!


Kingdom of Denmark

Denmark's strategy revolves around engaging the enemy in melee combat with their excellent selection of melee infantry, supported by their strong knightly units. Their weakness is in ranged combat, at least until they get access to their gunpowder units; trying to wear down their enemies from range will only end badly for the Danes. For reference, the unit sizes I will be listing here are when the game is put on 'ultra unit size', Secondary Melee Attack represents the secondary weapon cavalry units use after completing a charge, and the acronym AP stands for armor-piercing. The blood of warriors flows strong in the Danes; let the world tremble at their coming!
