Available on the steam workshop!
I proudly present The Barbarian Invasions: White Huns Unit Pack. This mod expands the roster of the White Huns, a faction added as free-LC with the Age of Charlemagne campaign pack. The White Huns are an interesting faction as they are a horde which begins at the eastern extremity of the map and starts at war with the Sassanid Empire.
As we know with the Black Huns (the Huns to which Attila belongs) the Huns' real strength lay in their vassal tribes who were forced to fight for them. As such this mod gives the White Huns a wide variety of eastern vassal troops, mainly expanding their infantry, foot missile troops and camels. This mod gives the player the chance to use Kushan Longbowmen, Kushan Spearmen, Sogdian Skirmisher, Hunnic Camel warriors and many more.
Each unit is usable in custom battles and in the campaign. Each comes with a handmade unit card which is indistinguishable from the vanilla style. Many units have technological upgrades and are well balanced and blended with the vanilla roster. This mod fills gaps in the roster without being overpowered and doesn't add any units which you may consider to be pure fantasy. You can find all the information you need about recruitment and upgrades in the discussion forum on the steam workshop page.
Originally these units were intended to be a part of the BARBARIAN INVASIONS mod for Total War:Attila. This mod adds several Barbarian factions to the east and north east of the map. New factions include the Red Huns, Bulgars, Khazars, Magyars, Avars and Guptas. The White Huns were also a planned faction although they are no longer being added as CA decided to add them themselves with an update. The units contained in this mod were already made so we thought it would be a good idea to give them to the vanilla White Huns. Why not? The Barbarian Invasions mod will be released soon and you can find out more about it in the discussion forum on the steam workshop page and here on the forum.
For now consider this unit mod to be a teaser and a taste of the mod's quality
The Barbarian Invasions is run by Frozenman BG, the brain behind the whole project. He was also responsibe for the much of the concept of this units. Hail, hail, give him your praises.
ALSO I'm planning on making a roster expansion for all 8 playable Charlemagne factions (and perhaps some of the unplayable ones with a faction unlock!) please let me know what units you would like to see in Age of Charlemagne!
Here's a taster of what's in the mod. Remember that there's much more than these 5!
