Historically Irish Gaels wore brightly coloured, blues and yellows, i'd hate to see a repeat of Atilla and Medieval 2 where all the Irish are a horrible dull green-brown. It's quite off putting.

    Factions will still have faction coloured uniforms in Thrones of Britannia, as they've had in all our games. There will be quite a number of factions in Ireland so you'll see Irish troops in a variety of colours.

    Translation: The player controlled Irish faction will be green ;-)

    I think the main problem most have is the brightness of the colors. Take this picture I stole shamelessly for example. Source is Osprey btw, a very reputable and heavily researched historical art book kind of thing, I am sure CA has probably used it in the past honestly.



    Note how bright the clothes are, whereas in the trailer they are the somewhat typical Mud Barbars. Having some bright colors for not only the Irish but also the Anglos, Danes, and everyone else would be really great IMO, as after all history did not have some toilet or grey filter on it during the "dark" ages.

    Also, please give me some [S A F F R O N T U N I C S]

    The trailer uses quite a stylistic look. As I said above there will be a variety of colours used for Irish factions, from blues to reds to yellows to greens and so on, and you'll see a good mix of colours across all the factions in the game.

    Relieved to hear this. Thank you for the response.

    It might seem like a small thing, but that's really nice to hear. I feel like the aesthetic of some of the recent historical games has been a bit too drab. Understandable with Attila, but still.

    I don't want them to look like rainbows either though.
    Something more simple and realistic.

    Makes me shudder.

    Some Irish people have red hair, right?

    Yeah, Rome 2 was a candy colored freakshow. Attila colors were by far the best and most realistic. Its not the high middle ages, bright colors weren't prevalent.
