    I did some research and this is what can be read in Book Four, Chapter Three: The Black Gate is Closed, "These were Men of other race, out of the wide Eastlands, gathering to the summons of their Overlord; . . ." Later in the chapter it talks about men from the South.

    I never got around to changing the shield's markings or the spear, sorry. After I hadn't worked on the unit for a while, I simply wanted to finish it.

    Looks great.... (although I still believe this should be a Haradrim, not an Easterling it doesn't detract from the beauty of the creation :) ).

    Wonderful!

    This could also be used as somekind of mongolian spearman :)

    Very goodlooking unit!

    Grade "A"!

    Kid tested, Mother approved!

    Strong enough for a man, PH balanced for a...ok, I'll shut up! :D

    Amazing unit, utah! He'd make an awesome African Pikeman.

    Once again you've created another brilliant unique unit. I can't wait to see which LOTR unit is coming next.

    Maybe you should ask Smoking Mirror. ;) I really didn't think that this unit would be used for anything outside of the LOTR scenerio. It didn't occur to me that he could be used for the Mongolians or as an African Pikeman, so no, there aren't any. Is there a demand for civ-coloring for this unit?

    I don't know about anyone else, but I would use him as a Pikeman or Footman for the Nubians, Songhay, and Zulus - the three African civs I have in my mod.

    That's if he had civ colors. I'll use him regardless of civ-colors - he's just too damn cool not to use - but I'd probably make him a UU for just one civ and give them either a burgundy or light yellow civ color. Like how I use your Rohan guy for the Celt's Medieval Infantry.

    Either way works fine for me! :goodjob:

    stonesfan, you know that SM made a civspecific version of the Rohan Guard unit, right?

    Seriously, can I have unit-making courses given by you? This unit is totally COOL, and I could use it as a middle eastern unit :)
