    First of all, I need to publicly thank Kinboat for his help. First of all, I switched to his newest set-up. Secondly, he modelled some props for me. Without him, I wouldn't have been able to work on these models this summer. I would also like to thank ripptide, who helped me tweak some of the render settings in Poser5. LouLong posted a picture for me; thank you. I think there was someone else too, but I can't emember right now.

    So, now on to the units. These are units, the models for whom I made and animated while I was on vacation this summer. Two of them were requests by TopGun and Zulu. One other I saw in a magazine over the summer. The last, the Frank Axe Thrower, is a remake of an earlier unit that I wasn't happy with. However, I needed to arrive home before I could make CivIII units out the renderings. I have four units completed, and I have three or four models already completed; I just need to animate and render them.

    I made these units' models on a mac. When I transfered the renderings to the PC, they looked a little big, and a little dark. That may be the result of the monitor I was looking at, but I'm not sure. Hopefully the units will be acceptable. You may want to play with the sounds a little bit. I just linked some sounds to the standard CivIII sounds, and some animations are not linked to sounds.

    If there are any problems, fix 'em. ;) Then post the corrected files. Thanks. :)



    Aluminium's improved, resized units with better sounds
    Thank you very much Aluminium!

    Wow! 4 excellent units! I especially like the crocodile warrior..Is it historically accurate? I wasn't aware the aboriginies wore armor or costumes like that...

    No, I don't think that it is accurate. TopGun drew a picture, Kinboat made a crocodile head, and I finished the unit. ;) It's kind of a fun unit though.

    I think there was a request for a mounted unit with a croc head, the one from the croc warrior would work great for it IMO

    Anyway great units! :D :goodjob:

    Wow, Utah.... great work there! :) You sure were busy over the summer. Thanks for making the Crocodile Warrior, the first unit for the Koori (a.k.a. Australian Aborigines). He's awesome and so are the other threee units. Thanks again, for giving us four great units to add to our mods. :goodjob:

    Wonderful. Lots of flavor here. I might end up putting the French back in my game just to justify the use of that Frank; the Native American immediately takes the place of my previous NA Rifleman; and that Croc Warrior is headed for Africa to take the place of the Zulu Archer (not historical but waay better than the color-adjusted unit I'm using now)...

    Your best work yet, Utah. Really top rate.

    I actually thought of your old Frankish unit as your best.

    Any chance you'll give the SlavicHorseman this new treatment?

    Yes, I do plan on finishing the lancer. I don't want to, but I'll do it. Still, it'll be in the next pack. I'm also doing a Russian Pikeman and another Native American Rifleman that could be used for Western mods.

    Nah, feels great to be in the "thank you list" but my contribution is (by far) the smallest of all ... lol

    I'm wondering how these units look on a PC. Are they okay? Do the civ-colors work okay?
