I'm aware that Sartosa isn't supposed to be a vampire/undead faction and while playing as Aranessa I was just thinking that they could update the roster if they do a Southern Realms/Dogs of War DLC.
They might not get rid of the undead units entirely, perhaps they would just expand the roster, downplaying the Vampire Coast units by adding pirate variants of the Southern Realms units.
Her Sartosa militia units right now are just slight reskins of Empire units just like the rest of the Southern Realms has had since the release of the first game which I think adds some credence to the idea of a redesign.
Dogs of War certainly isn't high on my list of things I want to see, I'd much prefer Araby or the Amazon's beforehand, but if they do add them I'd love for them to expand on/redesign Sartosa too. What do you think? Is that something you'd like to see too?
Im doubtful that this will happen, but I honestly don't see any reason why not. People have been demanding mono god's since the first game came out, they've been speculating and hoping that the empire gets redesigned and allows for multiple start positions, perhaps diversifies the regions of the empire, adding unique units. Then there's the wood elves which CA themselves have said they want to redesign And list goes on.
My point being that many of the factions could do with a tune up and many people want them to change. Redesigning Sartosa or adding more human units to the faction seems to me like it'd be alot easier than what could and perhaps should be done to many of the first game factions. I'm simply bringing this up as an idea and trying to stimulate some discussion on the topic, I implore you to not wave it off with a "CA is to lazy so forget it"
I'm also not saying this should be a priority or take precedent over more important fixes or additions; it's just something they could revisit if they ever decide to update Vampire Coast or add Southern Realms/Dogs of War.
