    I don't know if anybody is still checking this out, but is there a button for him? There wasn't one in the zip I DLed.

    Yeah, I noticed that too... I made a button for the Wolfshanze Mod... it's at the end of this post.

    Also, I have plans to redo his uniform... I just don't like it... His face is perfect but I think the uniform could use some work, and it's something I'm good at. I've got a plan, I just need to motivate myself to do it.

    There's a lot of pictures and a lot of documentary info on Mussolini's common wear of the Italian Field Blue uniform (and he often wore this with the black fez)... in fact, I just watched the 1985 mini-series with George C. Scott as Mussolini a week ago and it made me go insane watching how cool he looked in that blue uniform (he wore it for most of the mini-series... with the silly fez cap).

    I need to change the uniform over to the Italian Blue uniform... and (of course) correct the insignia for Il Duce (which I also have info on). It would look something like this:

    Well, with all my WWII Generals (including an Italian one in Field Blue, which gave me plenty of knowledge of Italian uniforms), I think I can take the step up to trying my hand on a LH. Like I said, it's just getting serious enough to sit down and do it... I already have the source info.

    I like the work done on the face of this leaderhead (does it use shaders?). I'll look into improving the uniform, and a new hat in a few months if I have some more time. I did make that Hirohito leaderhead a long time ago so I'm not terrible at making leaderheads, I just find it a lot more complicated than making units.

    @DWOLF - I think Wolfshanze is being sarcastic, but if not, I hope he can learn how to improve this leaderhead very soon.

    yeah I'm really hoping he's trying to be funny :mischief:...but whatever he's planning, I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

    I've got a "system" in-place now... takes me about 30-seconds to make any button from scratch now.

    The Mussolini in Road to War can't hold a candle to that one. That's very, very impressive work.
