When dawn of fantasy is released you might be able to buy and download it from our publisher, Lighthouse Interactive, otherwise you will be able to buy it from stores like other games.
We also plan to release on Steam.

No truth be told many wouldnt, that would need special training... but wouldnt it be awesome to have a mounted army? it would be costly and time consuming but the speeds would be much improved perhaps at a cost of accuracy but it would be useful Many armies revolved around their cavalry... And you cant say you dont get mounted archers... and of course you get lancers and such

Another question... can you change your units basic weapons? For example a normal sword into a 2 handed sword, a spear into a pike. For example you get 20 infantry, you give 10 spears 5 swords and 5 maces... or would you simplify it into making different unit sets
That sounds kind of like the Orcs to me.

Steam? that engine wreaked havoc on my pc last time i downloaded it ah well

and orcs ya it does a bit hehe

and as for the 2 handers getting sliced and diced by masters... most would have a minimal training unless facing a unit which had seen many battles or a hero, or of course one of the elven few but strong soldiers

I myself am looking forward to seeing the elven "defender" in action. I think that's what the dual-wielding swordsman's called, anyway... :\

We changed his name to 'Bladestorm' from 'High Elven Defender'. It is less vague and it fits better.

And yes, he is quite cool. One of his idle animations is to 'fondle' (brush off) his sword.

Naturally, but it's harder than it looks. And it looks impossible from my point of view in any case. N'oublie pas, lances aren't the same as pikes.

Of course they are, i never quite said they were the same but they roughly are the same and at least work on the same principles... and yes of course it would be harder than it looks... to balance on the horse, draw the bow, get an aim and manage to fire it correctly....

Pikes could be: made from much heavier materials; have longer shafts and no grip other than the pole itself. Lances, although roughly the same shape, have to: be made of lighter materials; be shorter in comparison and have an allocated grip space, to allow for balance and the restricted movement when mounted.
