    I think we discussed that already 40 pages ago. :p I took some time trying to look for a greek leader for B5 and an incan for C1, but ultimatively failed when I accidently produced the fitting picture of Perikles.

    We already found the matching bust they used for C1 (Pericles), though.

    That was mentioned before. Probably a common mistake but still far-stretched.
    At this point, I'm thinking the only possibly matching civs for B5 are: Georgia, Goths, Ghana.
    But no matter how hard I try, I cannot find that damn leader picture anywhere!

    I hope this is Firaxis planting false evidence

    Who else would wear a helm like Pericles? I know I've seen Hannibal with one like that but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    When I investigated this, I actually saw some Incans with similar helmets (yet ornamented), but I'm sure it's Perikles now.

    We did? I just checked the OP and it's still the blurry original one so I assumed we hadn't yet.

    As for C5, I'm just seeing Leif Eriksson now, posing sideways in the exact same fashion than in this picture, which would be perfect except for the fact that it looks to be a painting and not a statue on the board:

    Spoiler :


    Only problem is, Vikings is the civ I'd be considering and it wouldn't fit alphabetically...or possibly Norse?

    I think I need some sleep. :sleep:

    If nothing else, I hope all this to-do over Tamar of Georgia at least gets us one civ from the Caucasus in a future DLC or expansion. :D

    Could B5 not be Beatrice the wife of Barbarossa? In this picture she sure looks a lot like the vague picture. Maybe she's there because they want to include her in the background of Frederick?
    Would also explain the reason why it is almost impossible to find a different civ to fit between Germany and Greece.

    It would make sense for two Spains, but I highly doubt they'd spend budget on two "two-people" leader screens really.

    Yes, that is the way I saw it too. Sure looks like it could be Myanmar. :)

    If land area was the sole criterion for inclusion, Canada would be the second civ to get in after only Russia.

    So... Tamar confirmed? :p

    Saladin was Kurdish. Does Kurdistan fit into the alphabetical scheme? :D

    And after all Tamar of Georgia would be a new and fresh figure, a strong female leader in her very own right and an amazing historical figure with "bigger than life personality" but... why not Afonso I and Caterina de' Medici :run:
