[LH] Maurits van Nassau (v1)

  1. The Capo
    MAURITS van NASSAU

    This is a leaderhead I had planned on making for a long time, and I finally got around to it. The concept/model has changed significantly since then, but I'm pretty happy with the result here...

    Maurits van Nassau was a Dutch General and Statesman. At the early age of 16 he was thrust into the Political scene, as he inherited the title of Stadtholder from his father William the Silent. While his elder half-brother, William, was named the Prince of Orange over Maurits, William was in Spanish custody and was unable to lead the Dutch against the Spanish. Thus, at the age of 20, Maurits was named Captain General of the Army and was given the task of taking on the most powerful country in Europe; Spain. He was quite successful against the Spanish, but would die before his dreams of an independent Netherlands was achieved.

    Here is his WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE if you want to read up a bit more.

    He is relatively generic looking, so he could probably be used as any late Renaissance leader (1500s to 1600s-ish) or would make a good leader for Colonization as well.

    Here are his ArtDefines:

    I haven't really tested this LH too much, so we'll go ahead and call it Version 1. If you notice any issues or just want to comment visit my Leaderhead Gallery and Self-Help Thread!
