    This Fine Unit was created by utahjazz7.

    I colored the Unit Shield with a Blue Civ Specific Color in all flcs in order to allow the color to indicate what Civ the Unit belongs to. This was not an easy task...at least not fast LOL...The inside of the Shield is perhaps too solid as far as color but it is the best I could do without MUCH More time. Used Great care to preserve the Outer Shield Design and IMO it looks good in the Game.

    Increased the Speed for the RUN flc to 66 in order to help match the Pikeman Run.amb file that this unit uses for now.

    Increased the speed for the Attack flc to 66 and added 1 extra frame to allow better timing...the .INI now uses the Swordman.amb file for the Attack. It is is better for now until new sounds are made for this unit.

    Made New units_32.pcx and added Civ Specific Color to the Shield.

    Corrected the Large and Small pcx files ( pixcel size needed adjusting)and added color to the shield...Also Corrected the Original Large and Small pcx file pixcel size and added a new units_32.pcx Black and White version.



    All has been Game Tested...Enjoy

    Big Thanks to utahjazz7 for creating this Unit.

    Great! The original was lacking civ-colours. I'm thinking of using this as a generic medieval swordsman.

    Great job on that re-color there mate! Now if we could just get someone to scale this one up a bit. He's a little tiny compared to the stock Swordsman.

    Ok COAtlantis1745 and all who want a larger Gondor TowerGuard...here are the Complete Files.

    I increased the unit size a little over 12 % (after Much Experimentation) which brings the TowerGuard up to a nice Game size without being too small or large.
    ...Hope you guys like this as much as I do. I think this TowerGuard unit by utahjazz7 works Very Well with the Siege Tower by aaglo but how ever you use it, it makes a Great Knight Unit. This is the Civ Specific Color on the Shield Version.
