    Thank you for your heads for the FFH! I like Kael's, but some of them lack the "Theme", I mean something similar that makes them all a whole thing (well they have the theme like maybe hand-written pictures, but I wanted to try something new). Your are nice and themed, I like to play with a new appearance of my neighbours =).

    Just a question - what is the pack2 for? Which mod? Leaders look a bit funny and interesting.

    EDIT: If you'll have time and desire, can you revamp the Basium and Hyborem please, they are only looking weird and not too angelic/demonic (Well Basium is at least something like blue bodybuilder with a hammer, though I want him to be more serious and "angelic", and the Hyborem is like a cartoonish hellboy... He really lacks the flavor of power and demonic fear. No offence, but I'll be really happy to have them revamped and more power/terrible looking from you).

    Thank you again =).

    Hello Deon,

    :thanx:
    The pack 2 is a mix of leaders I have created for the Song of the Moon Mod (not released yet) and some other leaders I will probably integrate in my next update of my graphics mod with historical leaders (For the moment my graphics mod replaced only the Era movies, Civics and Techs pictures)...

    For Hyborem, you are right... I'm not very pleased with this version...
    I will try to improve it...
    For Basium I didn't see him like an angel... Do you mean with wings?
    What do you mean by "more serious"?... It is not so clear for me...
    In fact I copied the Keal version... (At least tried...)

    :)

    Yep. But it's not neceserly because it's an angel that he should have wings. My biggest complain about Basium his is skin color. It suposse to be almost white, a really really light blue.

    i cant believe it took me this long to find these leaderheads!

    great work Frenchman! any chance of getting these animated?

    i agree that Basium should have almost white skin. and Alexis could do with a different colour skin, a bit more pale, liek a vampire ;)

    In-game he's without wings, but it's the model only...
    He's too blue and the ONLY thing that should be changed for sure - I like him in the Full Helm with 1 Pauldron. So if he wore full helm 1)we don't see his face, it shows his "hard-heartedness" and lack of emotions, if you read his description you should know why, NO MERCY, 2) He's like an angelic fetish boy - full helm, 1 pauldron and words carved in his body... A True Character.

    hello Deon,

    :thanx: for your comments... My English is a little bit poor so what is "full helm" : is it a helm totally closed and we don't see the face of the man?
    I will try to update the leaders (Basium, Alexis, Hyborem...)
    What about hyborem (I understood less cartoonish...) but have you some other comments?
    :)

    Yes full helm is a complete covering of the head... use the original Basium as a basis. :)
