    Very well done. Guys like this one always let me come back to a dilemma: I'd like to add a second leader to my Hun Mod and I have no doubt (considering all those capable leaderhead makers) that a very well animated leaderhead could be done, but the only hun leaders I am aware of (besides of Attila of course) are Bleda (Attilas brother) and Rua / Ruga / Rugilla (Attilas uncle, I think). Now, the problem is, that no one knows what they could have looked like and what sort of men those were (which leads to the question which traits would be appropriate). It's even hard to say whether they were important enough for the Huns to make them selectable leaders...

    There is not much evidence to show that the Xiongnu were Huns. So add him to another civ ;)

    I did not mean that I'd use this leaderhead. I meant, that leaderheads like this one remind me on my issue. If I'd add another leaderhead to my Hun civ, I'd request a new one, of course!

    Looks good. Would it fit as a third leader for the Mongols?

    If you renamed it Ogedei it would.

    The Xiongnu =/= Huns =/= Mongols.

    The Capo and I have already discussed it on his thread (Diplomacy)- MO's Yu looks really like Odegei, so we're gonna use Yu as Odegei.

    I agree it is more than hard to find another Hun leader as important as Attila.
    However i would still like to see Bleda for them.
    The LHs are not equally famous/important anyway, so it is not that big problem to have a civ with a worldwide known and a little less familiar leader...

    Since you are focusing on asian civs mostly, i think a better version of the tibetanian leader from Amra's CivGold Library would be in place. The old one looks to much like mao :), but this is jut a secondary request, nothing important really

    You could do it with the same program you are creating your leaderheads with. It's all nif. The only problem is talent, but considering your leaderheads I don't see an issue in your case. You might also search for a good base, that means another building that is in some ways similar. For example you could use some of Freyas buildings (from her hungarian cityset) to set up the oof part. You'll certainly need to work on the texture to make it brighter, but I think it is a good point were to start. If you still think you can't do it, you might ask other modders directly as lots of them don't seem to check the request theads at all. At the moment hrochland seems to be the only building art modder that is active. But even from him I haven't seen any post since a while. Walter Hawkwood and Freya seem to be capable, but I haven't seen any post by Freya since some weeks and Walter seems to take a break... We could really need more building modders, especially for citysets...
