    This is a unit I threw together while finishing up the Siege Archer. It is based on a request I saw a few weeks back, but it doesn't exactly match it. Also, the attack animation isn't the hottest, but there aren't any huge problems.

    No,it's not the finest piece of work, but it's pretty cool at the same time . . . least in my opinion.


    WARNING: In the death animation, you will not see a dead body pull its lifeless self up off of the ground and start jumping.

    WARNING: He is ill, and the illness causes his skin to appear yellow.

    Hot diggity! This unit looks really cool! :goodjob:

    EDIT: Maybe good as a Carthaginian Warrior? (Would that be the closest Civ to associate this with in the epic game?)

    Cool... At least we know he isn't a zombie :D Once he's down he stays down...

    I think Carthage would be the closest civ... They (and the Egyptians at times) used Libyan mercenaries... If I'm remembering right.

    Yes, this is a point that we shouldn't overlook. ;)

    About which civilization he should serve, I don't know. I found the "concept art" in a thread asking for a few different early ancient age units. Perhaps the requester, LBPB, could explain what he wanted this guy for.

    Nice unit! :goodjob:

    Here is a short description: How to cure the yellow skin of Utahs units.

    Now he has a healthy skin! :) (Hmm, the smiley looks ill too.)

    Hmm, I'm using psp 7 - my attempt to follow those instructions just gave him a pretty nasty looking red rash all over his body, in addition to the yellow skin... what we do to these poor units... :cry:

    Whew! I left him on the CFC doorstep just hoping someone would take him in.

    There was some question earlier about what to use him for. Did you add him to the epic game?

    Hey! I like that you've made it look African - I could use that as an African UU of some sort - any chance you could post a dark-skinned version?

    I think the African version would look really good - I'm sure we could find it a home too :)

    Can do. I used a screenshot of the flic for the small pediaicon and the units32 icon - the large pediaicon needed to be recolored (too big for a flic screenshot), so it's not as accurate.

    Edit: I thouight I might use him for an Ethiopian/Abyssinian warrior myself.

    Right on, utah!

    There was a Libyan dynasty of Egypt at one time, otherwise the Lybians were always being a pain to the Egyptians...so I guess Carthage would be the best choice for the epic game? Make it the unit of theirs that precedes the Punic wars or something...
