    Looks really good! I'm glad you got shadows to work on this on. Although this is technically a spearman, since a pikeman would be using both hands, ;). But it's great anyway!

    Its intended to fill the Pikeman slot in the unit tree, thats why I called it a Pikeman, although your right about it being a spearman.

    nice unit... the only gripe I have is that he should use both hands to stab. He looks rather casual the way he's using the spear/pike.

    Plotinus posted a pikeman animation, why not use that? :)

    Far and away your best unit ever.

    Good civ color.
    Good shadows.
    Good animation. The suggestion by TopGun69/Stormrage is a good one. You could use the fortify to move from single hand to double hand hold and use Plontinus' Pikeman animation.

    All in all, a really nice unit. Congratulations and thanks for taking care of the little details.

    Sword_Of_Geddon... Congratulations on this Unit:goodjob: I agree that two hands on the Pike/Spear would be more appropriate and powerful for the Attack.

    Wow I'm glad everyone likes this unit! Thanks for the great feedback guys. I didn't know there was a pikeman animation. Where can I find it?

    Perhaps the setup and animations Plotinus used for his Ethiopian pikeman might be useful?

    One of your better ones, actually. Normally, one doesn't use a pike one handed, but this guy is beefy enough that he gets a dispensation.
