    I think founding the Cyborg Justice League is no more fantastic or unreal than time travel or whatever the heck a "Dual-Flux Quantum Temporal Rift" is, but that's just my two Bat-cents.

    OK, i am going to out the Apache Civ in the game, but here's my dilemma, The Apache were made up of so many different types of Apaches, and sine "we" are only using 2 at the present time, see attached and i need a suggestion on which 2 would be the best for the Heroes area, thx?

    I vote for Geronimo (shame on you, remains abducting skull&bones-suckers, you won't be represented as heroes!) and Cochise.

    Btw. can't we have villians as well? I liked to be able to fight some (barbaric) villians aside their generals... btw here's the soundtrack for that feature: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pw6GNRdmx9Q

    Yeah the video is crap, I have to admit that... but the melody of that song is funny, somehow, in parts, imho. Don't know about the lyrics as I am no native speaker. When I hear german songs I almost instantly turn them off, so maybe I understand you.

    There is one exception, though - but that may be due to the fact that a french girl sings and the lyrics are so anachronistic^^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uf-n7YfRKqc&feature=related

    [although it's not my favorite turn by her -
    check out this,
    this and
    this (very dirty song, a great show off of french humor and the melody reminded me of the beach boys "heroes and villians" as well)]

    Really? Didn't know there were plans for a villian trait - great to hear!:goodjob:

    yeah I read a lot of (ex) military members like metal so, maybe the Abu Graibh & Guantanamo army affiliates just wanted to party with the inmates after all -- entertaining them with roaring metal day in-day out... Aside of my sarcasm, I like to listen to psych (things like "soft sounds for gentle people" compilations and stuff - yes, that's a real compilation :jesus:), while nourishing my habit of a black and white world with heroes and villians.

    Hell, I even saw a suggestion of a lurker to include Alice Cooper to the planned 'go ask Alice' alternate timeline [which of course originally refered to Alice in Wonderland], now he's not really metal but he liked harder stuff. While in the clubs he didn't ask for replays often - but this one he liked and wanted to listen to it again, and maybe you do so, too^^

    So I called for Scottish civ before, and with Highlander special unit and Willaim Wallace for hero, did Willaime Walace ever get implemented?

    @Strat, Make Red Cloud a hero or leader for sioux!!

    Scotland is a Culture, and the Highlander is a unit for it as of last week. Wallace has not been made yet, but post about things like this in the New Heroes thread please. Thanks.

    Yeah, it's a bit confusing, but strat asked me to post a new heroes thread for this purpose, so I figure he had a reason for it.

    @Hydro/Koshling: OK, that's a pretty long list.:run::joke:

    I think I would like to refocus from the Promotions to try and clean up this list and get to adding more heroes and UUs. If anyone wants to post ideas, please feel welcome, look at my Units thread for the format of the ideas, that format makes things easier for me.
