    I just made this head, but it isnt supposed to be any real person I just made it for Ethiopia. It could be: Queen Bilqis (The Queen of Sheba from the bible), Queen Gudit (The Jewish Queen who brought down Axum), Queen Helena, or Maybe a young Empress Zewditu.

    Very, very nice. I'm liking the medieval era personally. The backgrounds and props are really well chosen to harmonize with each other. Very nice work. :goodjob:

    This leaderhead is exceptional - the sole suggestion I might make is that some of the backgrounds appear too in-focus to me, perhaps they might have been blurred just a little. But I have to use this one for sure, it's definitely in my top ten! :)

    Those are some of the best looking make-out lips I've seen on a leaderhead!

    Maybe I should change the Ethiopian leader back to Cassiopeia... Era 1 looks dead cool!

    Fantastic work, and you know I'll have a use for this!

    I think, strangely enough, that Ethiopia might well be the civ with the most custom LHs now. It's had LHs by me, Civ Army, R8XFT, sween, and now Shiro too. And that's just off the top of my head.

    Very nice work here, Shiro! :) You still have the touch... backgrounds, poses, skin textures, props... eye candy, I'd say!

    If you count the British Isles as one civ though... ;)

    Great! Way better than the West African-looking Zara Yaqob the Civ IV developers gave us (all Africans do not look alike!).


    Bilqis is the Yemeni name for her, though. The native Ethiopian name is "Makeda."
