    At C. Roland's suggestion, I'm started a thread listing some of the leaderhead art required for the project.

    In some case, LH art does not exist and we need someone to put something together for us.

    In other cases, we have LH art, but it is either based on an overused template or isn't really that well done (probably one I did. :p) With the new LHs added by BtS, it may be time to re-visit some existing models.

    Here is a list of our requirements, with links to pictures for reference. Where appropriate, I will update with the name of the person who volunteers to take it on:

    Pierre Trudeau, Canada (bernie14) - COMPLETED

    Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, Nigeria
    (see below)

    I have models for some of these already, but they are inideal for whatever reason.

    All of these require doing at some point, and our timelines are quite aggressive, so any help would be appreciated!

    By South Africa, what do you mean ? Is it a kind of Boer Civ (and Rabbit made a nice UU if it is the case)?

    If it is not to much difficult, can tou list the leaders that you have planned for each ? It is because I'm planning to recycle some old leaders and it may help me to find who I can transform to who :D

    We've decided to add a few more modern nations to 4.0. The goal is to cover, not only the world in a geographic sense, but in a historical sense as well. Thus, the Oxus and Yangshao are included at one end of the spectrum, and modern South Africa, Italy (and of course Canada, Brazil, etc.) at the other.

    Yup. I'll post in a few minutes.

    Baktria (Diodotus I^ - Aranor's civ)
    Batavii (Civilis^ - Aranor's civ)
    Bolivarian (Bolivar^)
    Bulgaria (Stambolov - Amra's civ)

    Khoisan (Witboi*)
    Kushans (Kanishka - Amra's civ)

    Mande (Aksia~)
    Mexico (Hidalgo* and ?)
    Minoa (Satur - Amra's civ)
    Mutapa (Mutota~)
    New Zealand (Clarke~)
    Nigeria (Obasanjo^)
    Ni-Mii-Pu (Hinmanton (Chief Joseph)~)
    Olmec (Po Ngbe*)
    Oxus (symbolic leader~)
    Phoenicia (Hiram*)
    Picts (Calgacus - Amra's civ)
    Piliwni (Wovoka*)
    Sami (Svaase^)
    Selucid (Nicator^ - Aranor's civ)
    Somalia (Daar*)
    South Africa (Mandela~ and Botha~)

    * = good LH exists
    ^ = LH exists but could be better
    ~ = no LH currently exists

    "Could be better" usually means that not much has been added to the LH besides a re-colour or that something is "off" - skin tone, for instance.

    LH's from Amra's civs can be seen here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=2646

    For Mexico, I don't know wich LH you are using, but he would be really easy to make with a recycled AstroTech (Final Frontier) Leader, so I'll do him if you can't convince me that the graphic you are already using is better :D (screenshot or link ?)

    For his second leader, what about Lázaro Cárdenas for a modern Leader ?
    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=255827

    Also, I'm planning on doing a Zapata leader that could be use as a third Leader. (I really want to make a mexican LH with a hat :D)

    What do you think ?

    I've included Franz w/Austria in my 1790 AD for CIV Gold BTS scenario, but his eyes look weird. It'd be wonderful if anyone can fix this.:please:

    I could help with that if you need me, just PM me if you feel the urge.

    BTW, I'll post my progress on that "yu" guy later. :)

    I'm using Napoleon, and the LH is very simple. I'll post a screen tonight. Of course, I am always open to better LHs than the ones I do. :)

    Both sound good to me!

    Hmmm, that's odd. There is an alternate Franz Joseph including in the BtS modula Austria. Maybe that's a better match.

    Just as a suggestion, for those who haven't noticed, for Nigeria Obasanjo is no longer in power. Umaru Musa Yar'Adua is the new president and a better and more interesting leader. Obasanjo goes with the trend of power hungry and corrupt where Yar'Adua has shown he is a charismatic servant leader. If the leaderhead for Obasanjo is already under construction then keep up the good work but if not you may want to consider the current president as a better candidate. Good luck on 4.0 guys!:goodjob:

    Updated the list to reflect completed work. Also, C. Roland added a LH of Hidalgo, which we already had but his version (as usual) is much better.

    Any other takers out there?

    ewu.7waker,

    I'll try to do that tonight, but it's compleeeeeeete crap! :D

    I may be interested but I'm still working on some leaders I wanted for my personal mod - Bolivar, some California leaders, George III, Ataturk...

    Well, Bolivar is one we need, and we had Ataturk in an older version (but the LH was inaccurate). If you end up doing Ataturk, we may re-add him.

    Either way, if you're doing Bolivar and Ataturk for your mod, we would love to be able to use them.
