    Very nice! The feet are my favorite - they are as acurate as it gets :).

    Very nice. That knee thing wasn't a nice mental image though.

    Thank you! :goodjob:
    As for the other hobbits, maybe give them slightly shorter arms? This guy's Ape Coefficient is quite high. ;)

    Thank goodness they don't use shoes, those feet would require one heck of a pair of Nike's.

    And the thumbs go up again...

    :goodjob:

    :thanx:
    Looks great. While he does look a bit ape-like in the Civ Pedia Picture, he looks fantastic in the demo. It will look great in-game. Maybe even better than :king: Sid :king:!

    sweet unit aaglo. It looks a lttle different than those other hobbit units made by Kinboat(Ithink it was him), but I like the look of it nonetheless. Keep up the great work :goodjob:

    They were done by Kindred72 I believe. He based them off the DragonLance Chronicles. Called them Kender.
    If you didn't mean those:
    Kinboat did a hobbit worker if that is what you meant.

    Here is an alternate civilopedia icon.
    All respect to Aaglo. He does units I can't even imagine how to create; and while this unit is amazing, but this particular civilopedia icon seemed a bit below some of his others.
    If there is any interest in having these in PCX format let me know.
    Here is a GIF for preview.
