    What did you want this request for, tjedge1? Below is a rough preview of the Zulu Triceratops Rider. Is this the kind of thing you want? It is the Impi warrior from C3 pasted on to the triceratops from PtW

    That looks pretty good. Is there a way to shrink the rider a bit? If not, no problem, better to have something than nothing, I say. I had requested it over a year ago and somebody started it, then quit halfway, so when I realized you were using the same method the other guy was, and I liked your work I thought I'd ask you. It is for a fantasy african based civ called the Karimari. They have a cavalry of elephants and triceratops known to the rest of the world as the Thunder Brigade. Even though this civ is not in my random map game it will be in a scenario and I was hoping to get my hands on a unit that matched their strongest. Was really the only crucial unit I was still missing.

    okay, i've made the warrior smaller, and have done the SW,S and SE views of the attack. How many flics do you want? I was planning on attack, death, default and run, and maybe a victory and fidget if i have the time and don't get too frustrated! And i'll try to make civ pics and a unit32 pic too. I hope to have it done in a week or two. I'll post a preview of what i have done soon

    What you are planning sounds great so far to me. Heck I couldn't complain, I'm too excited. Thanks LizardmenRule!

    That is perfect. It will fit perfect. Thanks! I'll wait patiently for this to be done now.

    P.S.- I already added you to my credits list.

    i'll try to colour the triceratops, but if it looks crap i won't bother. I've almost finished the death ani (just the N, NE and W views to go), and it really like it. I might use it myself!

    Cool. Either way works for me. I'm glad you like it. I always thought it would be a fun unit to have.

    Finished!! I've done the attack, death, default, fidget and run animations, but i haven't play tested it yet, so i'll post it sometime tomorrow. i would've done a victory animation, but the warrior wouldn't fit inside the frame no matter what i did. sorry

    No prob, victory anime is always an extra, not really necessary. Thanks, I'll keep my eyes open tomorrow.
