Frontier will make use of Backstept’s Regent Armoury for swords. Used here with kind permission by Backstept, these Medieval swords will be used by the guards, soldiers, knights and upper classes in the civilized areas. Beautiful, aren’t they?
I have kindly obtained permission from Backstept to use his excellent Regent Armoury swords in Frontier. In this land, they will be the main choice of weaponry for the nobility and officers. The Crusaders at Lone Wolf will also be armed with these Medieval weapons. You can download his mod here to check this high-quality work out.
Backstept has based his work on Ewart Oakeshott’s standardization of Medieval sword types, meaning that the swords you see the knights carry into battle in the Frontier will be as historically correct as you can get. This is really important to me, since I’m trying to recreate a bit of a true Medieval atmosphere in this fantasy game.
I’ve already implemented the armours to support a Medieval atmosphere, now I can also put the swords in place and soon let this heavy Medieval knight’s arsenal loose on fantasy barbarians, trolls and dragons!
