Cool sprites, but this should have come with Legacy of Rome... you know, the expansion centered on the Byzantines?

This DLC gives your horses a really sweet coat of armour when you play as Byzantium. Love zooming in to look at it.

Are you a Byzasphile? Do you lay awake at night wondering why the heck your glorious cataphracts are stuck looking like filthy Latins in service to a trumped up Italian who pretends to have domain over all of Christendom? Do you feel that some realism is lacking when you're in full KEBAB REMOVAL MODE? Are you sick of restoring the glorious, enternal, magnanimous Roman empire with avergae looking units? Well worry no more friend! The Byzantine unit pack is here to spice up your gameplay with beautifully rendered units graphics!...Oh and I guess the other Eastern Orthodox countries are there as well...except Russia and the like, you need to pay an extra 2 dollars for them...because Paradox

Just another scam from your's truly. They dont even look Roman or byzantine, the horsemen look like nomads. For the love of god, do not by these unit packs.

Its a good buy but with the newer dlc packs the Byzantine Empire dies in about 5 years after the game starts and its really impossible to be the Byzantine Empire because the Ottomans kill you off.

A lot of people would've purchased this DLC for the Byzantine Cataphract, but it's bugged since as far back as 2yrs ago and Byzantine cultural retinue shows a horse archer model. The official Paradox stance is "it's unfortunate", which shows how much they give a toss.

Waste of money.
