    Great units! I just modded in the Viking lonsword v3. One guy bangs on his shield, another throws his Dane axe up in the air and catches it. Just great stuff there. :goodjob:

    I think this would fit Denmark better than Sweden, seeing how the the traditional Viking civ is represented by them.

    They look great, but the horns threw me off. Vikings never had horns on their helmets.
    Just... no...
    No horns... never.
    Ever.

    How can you be sure about that? ;) It was long ago, so I doubt if the historical sources are reliable enough to eliminate such possibility...

    They have never found a single horned viking helmet through archaeological diggings :nono: the idea of the horns appeared in the 19th century's Scandinavian nationalistic ideas.
    Plus that a horned helmet would be very easy to knock off, or if fastened, to grab and hold the wearer down :p

    well, celt had those... and it had the same defects.. so those defects are not "proof" that they did'nt have any.
    your first argument is better though

    Are you talking of horned celtic helmets like this one? Those were for religious purposes, if it is the "defects" you're talking about.

    Actually, they did. The helmet was bronze, ornamental, and only used for ceremony. (Explanation in the link below.) Vikings never wore horns in battle, obviously. For the simple reason that it was impratical, and for another very important reason. No self-respecting Viking warrior would fall back on wearing imposing horns, to make himself look fierce. This would be insulting. He would think himself a woman.

    Not to be picky, but that article only proves my point, it states that they found horned ceremonial bronze age helmets, but no horned viking helmets. Even the 19th century nationalistic ideas are mentioned.

    Still, that's not a problem here as we have the choice to use the horned or not horned helmet version for the longswordsman.

    I need help in installing these unit mods. I am playing on CIV 5 GOTY which is 2010. I've not got the new DLCs. Will these units appear in my game if I download them? I don't know where to put them in which file. Compared to total war unit mods in terms of installing, this is hard.

    This isn't a mod. It's a modder art resource. Mods like R.E.D. Modpack utilize these units.

    EDIT: Place the .civ5mod file in your C:\Users\%username%\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\MODS\ folder. The game should automatically extract it when you go into the Mods menu, but because of it's size you might opt to use 7-zip to extract it manually.
