    Hello!
    Here is a Phoenix Guard -unit. Phoenix Guards are elite warriors of the high-elves. Enjoy :)

    Here is civilopedia info (from the games workshop website):
    "Of the many great warriors of the High Elf people, the most fearsome to face are the silent guardians of the Shrine of Asuryan. Known as the Phoenix Guard, the main duty of these warrior monks is to protect the island shrine and all those who make their pilgrimage there. Particularly important is the eternal flame, through which the chosen candidate for Phoenix King must walk in order to receive the blessing."

    Here are the files:
    Phoenix Guard

    UPDATE!
    Here is PhoenixGuardAttackB -animation.
    The preview is in this post

    Attached are some previews of the animations and civilopedia

    Thank you for this great unit :goodjob: ! I'll replace the old animation for Phoenix Guard right away.
    Maybe now, you will consider doing some more elven units :)

    My thoughts exactly! To think, once upon a time aaglo thought he couldn't do humanoid units... (or was he just hiding something from us?)

    Very nice! :) I think there's a little too much reflection on his halberd, though...

    Very nice unit. How many more are you going to make for the WH mod? Just trying to figure out an estimated time on when ED will release the new version.

    Whoa! this guys looks almost exactly like Kain from FF IV (which means that I'm going to have to change the graphics for Kain's Dragoons now). Keep up the good work. I'll hopefully be back up to unit making shortly.

    Very nice. :thumbsup:

    BTW, aaglo, nearly all of your unit threads begin with "Hi!" or "Hi All!" or something similar on one line. I just though I'd point that out. :)

    Maybe its from doing all those dwarves and orcs, but this guy seems a little top-heavy. Is the camera angle the same as normal?

    Top heavy? I don't think so.
    Yep, the camera angle is the same as in those dwarves done earlier - and it's orthogonal, so it's not a perspective issue either. Maybe the large helmet makes it look a bit top heavy to you.

    "Top Heavy" just make me think of the RPG Macho Women With Guns (and the expansion Bat Winged Bimbos From Hell). :groucho:
