    I need to fix the robe, some minor face adustments, and put better wreath/laurels on. It'll look better ;)

    @RulerofDaPeople
    I decided to go with the Armor, most pix I saw had him in armor nd I just like the armor :D. After I finish some other leaderheads a may do a version in the toga.

    It is a very nice start, although the intersection between the toga and the armor does look a bit odd. :crazyeye:

    What background are you going to give him? The Milvian Bridge might be appropriate though I do not know if there are any good pictures you could use.

    Nice Start ! Look really nice :goodjob:

    Maybe a minor recolor of the armor and everything would be perfect ;)

    Don't know if it will be really historical, but to differentiate from Augustus armor, maybe you can go with a black or white cuirass (ok, my inspiration for this is the Gladiator movie, and the movie is more than 100 years before Constantine, and I don't know a lot about Roman emperor armor fashion)

    Ok I fixed most of constantine and adusted the background. The animations now work great. I was tempted to mess with the armor, but I wonder what RulerofDaPeople thinks so far.

    EDIT: attachments removed no longer necessary

    looks good. Constantine is a much needed leaderhead to.

    Very nice. I also really like how the camera-angle change makes it look different from Augustus. (In fact, I'd kind of like to replace the Augustus leaderhead with this one so that all the Augustus rip-offs look more distinct.)

    Nice, one of the Illyrian emperors of the so called "Illyrian Dynasty" of Rome. :)

    Ambitious. :p That Constantine looks excellent! Nice to see that not every custom leaderhead needs to remind a leader already in the game. This is a quality LH if I ever saw one. :D

    for mudular leaderheads you need to make a civilization, leaderhead, and artdefines_leaderhead file. The best way to do this is copy the the standard ones, add a prefix (i.e. CTG_CIV4ArtDefines_Leaderhead.xml) and copy the schema file that is listed at the top of the file. I tend to add a prefix to those as well which means you have to edit where it is written at the beginning of the files.

    or for more indepth start here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=234970

    Excellent !

    Probably your best, or one of your LH so far ! The best fan made roman leader for sure. Personally, I'm happy that you keeped the armor, I think it look better like this than only a toga ;)
