    this one was requested by PSYX

    i took hannibal and ragnar and combined their models and reskinned hannibal with new armor.

    i hope this one finds a good home in your mod brotha, and anyone else's, just give me due credit

    Man you are good!

    I'm not sure that I care about including Kiev, but this guy should be able to find a place in several other positions. Do you take requests?

    Sure thing. It'll be a while before we (Hand of History) need anything in the way of leaderhead artwork anyway. I'm just on the lookout for what we will eventually need.

    yeah, and a tip is: alot of warlords leaders have 2 separate objects for the body in the nif file. so when you use the nifskope method, you have to copy two or more branches (for those who know what im talking about)

    the good thing is, remember that specularity thing with shiny face leaders, well with the multiple objects, i set the "gold armor" to stay specular, and i made the one that had his skin in it have zero specularity, giving it some nice effects.

    @PSYX
    you're welcome! im glad to see so many making russian-language mods!! :)

    @sepamu92
    yeah, i've been wanting to try this technique for a while with napoleon medals, but i never implemented coz it was so minor. but with hannibal's silly "bowl helmet" removed and ragnars cools helmet, i just went ahead and did it

    It looks very good. Would he count as a Russian or a Viking?

    oh my, thats the best leaderhead ive seen on these forums in a while. he looks totally like he came straight from firaxis (and looks neither like Hanibul or Ragnar)

    Garret,

    Any chance you can write up a tutorial about how to add parts from one leader to another? I'm still in the beginning phase of trying to do my own leaderheads and haven't figured this out.

    thanks,
