    That first screenshot shows a lot of interesting leaderhead names. Can't wait to see the new modpack.

    Yeah.. I realized too late that I had all those names there.:lol: Some of the heads are not my best work, but many of my old ones like Diodotus here are getting a face lift as a late Christmas present. :p

    Beard or no beard, he looks fine!;)

    (What's with the laurels though? I remember there being an Alexander-with-laurels, but it's a Roman attribute, worn during the "triumphus" - the triumphal entering of Rome after a great military victory. Otherwise, great reskin!):)

    True, but again Depictions of Baktrian coins showing Diodotus and his son Diodotus II show him wearing a head band or a thin crown. But unfortunately if I remember well there is not one created in Civ ( I could be wrong of course) So I'm stuck with the Laurels.

    I would consider it, in fact I already had. The problem is I cant stand noshader leaderheads. This one is no exception as the real trick it uses is the light to trick you into thinking there is more depth to his breast plate. Other wise it just looks like it was plastered on there. If people are really wanting one I can quickly whip together a no laurels one.

    BtW: theres a button included in the download too. Should have mentioned that! :goodjob:

    Looks nice. I like the armor and I agree that you can do quite a bit more with Shader LHs versus the Nonshader ones.

    PS: As Fierabras said, that is an interesting (partial) list of leaders.

    Thanks guys.

    @ Amra/ Esnaz.
    Those are only a handful of the leaders I have created in my modpack. I will be releasing a couple of my other leaderheads too, as soon as I can get them zipped and uploaded.
