    The effort should go to a full fledged Norsca roster at the moment. (TW Warhammer)

    Icedrake
    Werewolf(s)
    WarMammoth
    Reavers

    Wouldn't you agree? :lol:

    Aren't there already like three TW games featuring this already?

    Corrected action is the most sincere form of apology.

    There was Barbarian Invasion expansion of Rome Total War, but it wasn't even remotely accurate, was for a much older game and was for a much earlier time period on a much larger scale. Then there's Age of Charlemagne expansion for Rome Total War 2, but it was in an earlier time period and is again inaccurate, with very little unit variety and generalises the British Isles situation, focussing on other areas.

    So what you're asking for is MTW2 Kingdoms Britannia. but units have their own special names?

    I don't see how that would be more accurate. Or how it being accurate would make it a good idea in the first place.

    It's been a very long time but I vaguely recall playing the Viking Invasion in Medieval the First. Interesting for awhile but once you had gone through the various factions that was about it.
