[A Note: This roster is still WIP and will be progressively updated over time with new units]
The Golden Horde, Ulus of Jochi and Batu Khan
Perhaps no army in the history of Europe before the modern era sowed as much raw, animalistic fear as the Golden Horde. Upon stout ponies and bearing strange weapons of war barbaric hordes of asiatic raiders seemed to descend like a biblical plague upon Christendom. Indeed, it is the fear of the Mongols that even now exists as a branded painful mark in the history of Russia, and all of the lands the Khans put to the torch. Unlike their southern cousins in the Ilkhanate of Persia, the Khans of the Golden Horde never intended, nor wanted to adopt the ways of their European subjects. Instead they stayed in the steppes, with other peoples who better suited themselves to Mongol life. While masses of conscripted Rus infantry march under a impenatrable hail of black arrows, Chinese engineers wheel forth awesome devices of warfare to the drums of the omnipresent unstoppable Mongol cavalry. Born on the steppes, and shielded by a wall of conquered flesh the armies of the Golden Horde descend upon both Europe and Asia, and sow death wherever the Khans desire.
For this roster, I have broken the tiers into three general categories based on the overall army composition of that period:
(Lancer units will have the different animations like other shock cav- Warman)
Dismounted Cuman Archers:
Rus Foot Archers:
Mongol Heavy Lancers (Early):
Heavy Horse Archers (Early):
Turkish Heavy Horse Archers:
Cuman Subject Cavalry:
Generals Bodyguard (High):
Russian Princely Cavalry:
Galician Vohlynian Infantry:
Rus Levy Infantry:
Mongol Heavy Lancers (High):
Generals Bodyguard (Late):
Rus Infantry (Late):
Heavy Lancers (Late):
Crimean Slave Raiders:
Heavy Horse Archers (Late):
Tatar Horse Archers:
Same disclaimer with the Ilkhanate. Some units cross between tiers. Since research on the Golden Horde was considerably harder, their roster is smaller and more units cross tier because there I just less information for me to pin down specific period army compositions on.
Work Progress (subject to updates):
Tier 1 [visually finished, semi-balanced]
Tier 2 [mostly visually finished, unbalanced]
Tier 3 [mostly visually finished, unbalanced]
