Factions Appearance Project

      This mod aims to improve the factions present in the game by giving them more variety and better visuals while respecting the original artstyle, visual and story cohesion (or lore-friendly if you prefer). This mod started with adding new appearances for the Redanian army since I was very disatisfied with both their low quality and low variety and it grew from there as I've been adding more variety to other factions. The mod is a WIP as factions get changes, new assets get made and ideas thrown around.
