    I notice that the grey uniform in the pictures has black portions (on the lapels etc). As it seems quite distinctive, perhaps it is worth a texture edit?

    Would it possible to get rid of that pesky shadow on his right (on the left as you are looking at him) where the wings from De Gaulle's uniform used to be? :D

    Nice leaderhead, I am very impressed.

    For traits, I don't think he should be aggressive, simply because that would confer upon him a military strength that Italy simply lacked under the Duce. I'd say Charismatic (which he clearly was) and either Organized or Industrious (to reflect him "making the trains run on time")?

    I agree. I'd go with Charismatic and Industrious.

    Industrious? Italy lagged far behind in industry both before and during the war. They were woefully equipped for war in 1940, incompetant waging the war, and lagged in production with constant shortages of everything throughout the war.

    What do you suggest as a second trait, assuming you are in agreement with charismatic?

    He knowed this, and didn't enter in war by soon... After the first victories of Hitler, he thought that war will be finished in a Blitz Krieg and was afraid to be out of the victory table. And U.S.A. weren't still in war... The japaneses crashed Mussolini's dreams!!! So a trait could be "DREAMER" :D ...Also CINIC: he said "I need 1000 deads to sit in the victory table" :confused:

    In one of the mods, Mussolini is Agressive and Expansive.

    Industrious does not actually provide "Industrial Strength" in the common sense - it's just a boost for monumental buildings - and this is something dictators of that period (Hitler, Stalin and i assume Mussolini as well) were quite good at... So i think IND is ok for him..

    I'm in agreement with Charismatic (most Fascist leaders have to have this to get into power). Industrious gives Wonder and Forge bonuses... so there IS a production boost (in the fact you can get forges faster/cheaper).

    I think "Expansive" would be the better 2nd bonus for Mussolini... he certainly wanted to invade his neighbors and the bonuses are more akin to Mussolini's italy (worker and harbor bonuses).

    Yea sure, cheap forge.
    Still IND is the trait for making lots of "monumental plans" and then get your self beaten up, because you neglected your army, while working those "monumental plans"... Sonds exactly like what happened to Duce.

    Expansive isn't a bad idea. But i think making Mussoliny a Woder-Whore would be just to hilareous to pass up.
