we've got some news for you! During the past few months, we were working on the next version of RotR 1.2 - the Northern Wars Update. It's not done yet but we hope that we get the release done in April / May next year.
As the name suggests RotR 1.2 will be centred around the northern factions - Sweden, Russia and Denmark.
But until then we've something to show you:
compared to RotR 1.1.9b there are 5 new Swedish units:
- Drottningens lif regemente (the 5th unit in the upper line)
- Tyska regemente (the last unit in the lower line)
- Lifregementets grenadjärkår (the 8th unit in the lower line)
- Lifgrenadjärregementet (the 7th unit in the lower line)
- Lifregementets lätta bataljon (the 9th unit in the lower line)
The latter three will be unlocked after researching a tech as they were only created after Gustav IV Adolf became king.
And here some in-game screenshots of the new units:

Thanks for the great work, oleg2242!

New small nations will be represented in a new way:
The first is Brunswick. Small nations will have their unique building chain which will only be available at the town where they are located. The unique buildings will have some special all-round effects and are making the units available.
Have a look:
