    Unit is game tested

    A rock thrower, as they should have existed way back!

    previews:


    Animations run at better speeds ingame!
    (run - default - fidget - default - fortify - attack x2 - victory - fortify - attack - death)


    I know that the basket on his back eventually runs out and he cant reach more rocks, but archers also have infinite arrows so just go with it :). And I guess imagine that he puts it down when he wants to reach the bottom ones... Also, in the fidget he finds a rock and puts in in the basket too.

    Basket is civ colored, and used some generic colors for his outfit.

    so yea.. Enjoy!

    Oh I have a use for this, great job Ruby, thanks!

    Could I get a packless, more wildman version of the same?

    Nice unit. I'll have a use for him. It would be great if I can get a female rioter to couple with him (even not stone throwing)

    Great unit, Ruby. I really like this unit and will definitely use it!

    I, too would like to see a basket-less version of it, for use as a rioter/citizen. Perhaps he could use a 'shephard's bag' to carry rocks instead...

    Well Done Unit ruby_sauce... "Rock On" :lol::goodjob:

    If you decide to make a "Riot" Unit.. perhaps just have the unit march around and carry a sign that says RIOT! He could wave his Fist in the air and Yell something to stir the people to riot.
    He could also throw Rocks for his attack.

    An M-unit of him with the spunky kid would really rock.

    maybe this kond of unit could trigger the apparition of rioting units throughout history - and there were many riots everywhere, believe me...

    You should enter the October Unit contest with one or both of your units. Not that I don't want Supa to win, but contests are no fun when you run unopposed ;)

    There is already a wonderful rock-throwing Hobbit unit by Kinboat IIRC (and some other very nice ones by Plotinus).
