You can do the same with the custom battle guys. I've been trying to change their weapons and armor but no luck. If I do I'll post it. The thing about custom battle is the AI will fight to the last man, makes it more fun.
You can change everything there is in the game with this mod.
Hope this helps.
I've known about troop Editors for a while, at that time I was only interested in a simple way to tweak my Companions. I don't really play M&B to much any more but if I do I'll check out that Editor for sure, it looks like fun and looks very helpful. Thanks for the link!
