Us as in Croatia? I never thought of Croatia as a world power in the "Ealry Modern" period. Or even a European power. Mabye in the middle ages though.

Are these accurate?

These are awesome! Why does Creative Assembly consistently make Byzantine Infantry look like crap?

Not really sure what constitutes 'military fashion', but I think the US infantryman in WWII looks classic. The Napoleonic French soldiers and British/French/etc around the mid to late 1700's looked cool too.The Nazis looked way too evil, but modern nonetheless! The British Empire in WWII looked terrible, like they are going to church or something. Same with the US in WWI. Oh yeah, and Roman legions look kind of cool.

the icons of warrior saints are definitely accurate, the others are based on miniatures from codecies, and warrior saint icons, so pretty accurate
