What is Erik's Troops for Europe 1100?
It is a submod for Europe 1100 that replaces every troop tree, kingdom lord and mercenary leader in the game with historically relevant equipment using assets from from two other mods called Vaegir Armoury and Calradic Armoury (formerly Expanded Bannerlord Armory- EBA). The mod focuses on the 12th century. 

Historical equipment? 
Most equipment choices in the mod are fairly well researched but well grounded suggestions that aim to improve the historical accuracy are more than welcome. Since this is the first version, some troop trees are far less fine tuned than others. I will take all serious suggestions into consideration. 

Does the mod change more than visual equipment? Yes!
- All troops has been given new equipment with new values. 
- A bit stronger garrisons. This feature is subject to change for balancing reasons.  
- Increased unit variety in all troop trees a lot but with some kingdoms I'm restricted by the availability of relevant assets. 

Will Erik's Troops for Europa 1100affect performance?
Yes, most likely. The assets from EBA and Vaegir are far more detailed and it is combined with the much increased unit variety.
