    That is from a semi-canon source.

    Those are Tilean. Look at the last picture that says explore italian culture.

    I would really like to see some Blunderbuss elites for Estalia. Close range shotgun blasts that decimate unarmored infantry.

    I'm not sure where this is from.. but I think the armor aesthetic would work really well with Estalia.

    I really want estalians w conquistadors and a state run inquisition....

    Im tired and its late but Mb they could explain the Spanish bull motifs as some kind of ancient connection to hashut? Their inquisition could then be devoted to rooting out the cultists...

    Or this could all just be gibberish in which case i apologize

    How could/should the Estalian Inquisition work as a campaign mechanic?

  • EnforestEnforest Posts: 2,093Registered Users
    Trade population hapiness for reduced chaos/vampire corruption? Like witchhunts or something.

    Dammit that's how warhammer should look.

    So lightsabre pikes?

    Seriously. That isn't how pikes would work. Then again, you're never in a real situation likely to get people dumb enough to run full speed into pikes.

    yes
    Idiots running into the the spear end of a pike formation is now more fitting than ever for warhammer.

    Yes, but even so people would get stuck on the pikes and weight them down.

    These knights looks sexy as hell ! >:) Who are they ? Knightly order ?


    I'm getting a pretty heavy Nilfgaard (The Witcher) vibe from them. Black armor, sun iconography, horns on that one guy. I'd guess them to be Knights of the Blazing sun though, or something like that :)

    They're supposed to be myrmidia templars if I'm not mistaken

    The annoying thing is that they have the models already. Mix the morion helmets from the black fire pass demo, the frilled arm variant of empire troops seen on artillery crews and then metal chest plates.

    Maybe some difficulty comes from adding in a pike animation but they've done it before, can't they use animations from rome 2?

    Will we see today estalian soldiers fighting lizardmen ?! maybe :p

    Estalians and Tileans has always been the mistreated stepchildren of the Warhammer universe. They should have relevance to the point of actually having their own tabletop army. But the stuff that has been presented has been so barebones, even the Warhammer armies project couldn't muster up interesting armies for any of them.

    Just some potential Estalia faction Hype!!

    How do you guys feel about Estalia becoming a potential faction?

    What are your guys ideas about an Estalia faction and how they should/could be implemented?


  • LordTorquemadoLordTorquemado Posts: 1,287Registered Users
    I can't wait to see Estalia in the game, both in Old and New World. They could be a nice addition to both games, and doubtless it could fulfill a significant role in the game. Conqueror mechanic would be awesome, with some bonus for the infantry.

    Besides, Estalia would be the perfect faction without monsters / mages, for they consider that heretic, and I would love to see a Santa Hermandad in the pursuit of heretics and traitors...

    A nice roster would be reskinned basic empire units: swordsmen, spearmen with and w/o shields, etc. and some new units like pikemen (which would require some kind of formation I guess), conquistador-like handgunners, etc

    Everything with morions, a load of morions

    A cool color scheme would be something similar to that of the swiss guard:

    I think you are giving people too much credit...not a history expert, but soldiers throughout history charged into just as deadly situations. (I'm particularly thinking of the American civil war, ww1-I'm sure soldiers, specifically generals in older eras weren't any brighter).

    Sure sure, but you'd impale people, corpses would pull the spears down, rendering them useless. Etc. People don't bounce off of sharp pointy objects.

    Point taken.....aha you clearly never heard of spring loaded spears..pretty common weapon...take my word for it no need to google. ;)

    Actually, those are a thing. Apparently some were made in the US by the South during the civil war. Not really used, of course, as the troops they were issued to basically said "uh... these aren't guns."



    Ah, maybe they didn't actually make the springs, but they wanted to. Huh.
