I posted this in the general discussion topic but there are so many replies there that nobody goes in it. Well, here it is:

"Well, since i want this mod to be ready as soon as possible and other supporters told me that they need all the help they can get i searched a little for new units that are probabily needed for this mod. They are from a game called knights of honor. These are a few pictures of them:

Norse units:

http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/vikings.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/varangians.gif

Since Normans and Varangians weren't around in the 4th-5th century you should rename Normans in Norse Swordsmen and Varangians in Elite Vikings or something like that.

Berber Units:

http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/desert_spearmen.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/desert_cavalry.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/mameluks.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/camelrider.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/saracens.gif

They can be used for the Sassanids, Copts and the Caliphate too, but Saracens need to be renamed. Desert Swordsmen would fit i think.

Byzantine Units:

http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/pronoias.gif

Roman Infantry can be used for the Western Roman Empire too.

Slav Units:

http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/slavonic_axemen.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/slavonic_bowmen.gif

These should be added along with the old BI Slav units.

Romano-Briton Units:

Other Units:

http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/archer.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/axemen.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/swordsmen.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/spearmen.gif
http://www.genovino.it/koh/unita_file/cavalry.gif

The last ones can be used for factions that really lack units.

If you need anything else just ask."

We appreciate it, TiGeR, but if these skins are taken from another already released game, there might be copyright issues we will have to deal with.

Plus at this stage we're mostly looking at the general rosters (names, abilities, morale/stamina levels, tiers, etc) for the units, instead of going deep into how they'd actually look. I'm sure we will, eventually, look at their skin design and aesthetic appeal in-depth, but for now we focus on drafting the factions' unit rosters first, among other things.

For details, you can refer to each faction's individual thread (the WRE, the Visigoths, etc), and raise your questions or put forward your suggestions in there.

Thanks for your interest in helping though, we appreciate it. If you are interested, we could include you as a member of the Dark Ages: Roman Revival Development Team, Research & Ideas Department.

OK, you may add me. If you need info about military units of any type, just ask me i got so much info that i don't know where to start from. As for the copyright issues i'll try to edit the unit's skins so we won't have any issues.

Perhaps I haven't made myself clear enough - we're not really looking for people to ask info from, but for people to contribute whenever they feel they have useful stuff to contribute.

For example, we're currently working on the unit roster for the Western Roman Empire - infantry at the moment, to be precise. You could take a look through the suggestions made so far in that thread, get a feel of how we go about hammering stuff out here, and add in thoughts, remarks, new proposals, or some advice of your own.

For general information about the mod, you could go to this thread.

Thanks again for the offer.
