AoK Alpha Goth Berserkers(early name for Huskarls)
Posted on 02/02/04 @ 12:00 AM
This modpack changes Huskarls into Goth Berserkers, which were what Huskarls used to be called
back when AoK was in its Alpha stages. These Huskarls which ES trashed from the game's later
prerelease versions wear dark armor as well as have teardrop-shaped shields with dragon crests
instead of the white-armored guys with striped round shields that we all know too well.
This is the fourth mod of a series mods that bring back long-forgotten very rare relics from
AoK's prerelease days. Other mods in this series that you may have already seen in the
1.AoK Alpha Dark Age Building Set
2.AoK Beta Jannisaries(the pointy hats are back!)
3.AoK Alpha Castles
This zip folder that also contains the mod also contains the SLP files of the Goth Berserker
(AoK Alpha Huskarl)unit so that you may use them in any project that you want to use them!
Feel free to do whatever you want with this mod!;-)
actually in history the vikings had the beserkers, totaly mad blokes...
But if thisis bringing back things that were in the prerelease version, thats ok!

Excellent! Theese are perfect for my scenario!
I might submit my scenario soon, but you will need the all roads lead to rome Mod to under stand it, and this to make it look better.

I'd give it a 5.0, but I don't want to upset ES, lol. It's great! I'm using it for a project of mine...hehehe...look at the forms and you may see what I mean later on.

I'm not entirely sure which one, but either this mod or the jannisary mod crashed my game and made me have to reinstall it.

"actually in history the vikings had the beserkers, totaly mad blokes..."
Not completely true. Earlier gothic tribes like the Ostrogoths etc... the Gauls were quite similar in terms of war and lifestyle to the Celts, and they had berserks as well, although these berserkers looked more like woad raiders.
The AOK berserk units are not really very historically accurate. They didn't wear any armour, they were either naked or wore animal skins, sometimes wore woad for southern type races, and carried either two swords or one sword, or a big axe
Anyways. I like the mod. Although the ES team lack any historical accuracy, it's a novel new unit to have fun with. Good job!
