    Ah! We alsmost had to wait ;). But it was worth it!

    A suggestion... Since you made teutonic orders... What about a small pack with Templar, Hospitalier, Knights of Santiago, etc for other civ? :mischief:

    I also have another suggestion/question. When I look at my website for the planification of the mod, I can see that the earliest Russians units we have are the Scythian. They should be Iron age, not bronze age...

    So what should be use for the Bronze age Russians? Do you plan to make a small pack to fill this gap?

    And then, for what period would you use the other units?
    - Slavic for Dark Ages
    - Novgorod for early middle age?
    - Rus for late middle ages?

    You probably know Russian history a lot better than me!

    This is insane. I remember the old days when making a single animated (not cut'n'paste) unit was considered an achievment. Six years ago I would never have imagined that this was even possible.

    Hi Sandris! Great (and huge) work! And also the Saxons! I like especially the horseman of Bronze Age. Thanks for your work, is always a source of inspiration.;)

    Wow, Sandris. Just wow!. :drool:

    This is amazing. I am especially fond of the late Iron Age swordsman. So cool looking.



    And that Saxon axeman might just be the scariest guy I've ever seen. Thank you very much. :goodjob:

    One more time thank you very, very much Sandris. These units are so great! :woohoo::dance::bounce::bowdown:

    And in my eyes that mounted stone-thrower is one of the funniest units, you ever have done. He could have won every Bronze-Age-Olympic-Games by catapulting these massive stone blocks in the manner he does without breaking his hand. :)

    As always, these units are amazing!

    Thank you for the huge amount of work you put into these units and for sharing them with the Civ community like this, Sandris.:)

    And the packs just keep getting larger and larger.:eek:

    I dig the Sutton Hoo style helmet on the Saxon swordsman. Technically though, wouldn't that make him an Angle? ;) I'd be curious to know how much artistic discretion goes into the style of your units. Did you find a book that said "Germanic spearmen in the high middle ages had a V-shaped shield with a band of black and white squares," or was that pure Sandris? :)

    So true.

    Great work on those beautiful shields and, although I'm not sure how I'll use them, the Teutonic Order units are so good I'll have to find a way! :goodjob:

    The truth is I`m already working on filling gaps within the Russian unit line. :D

    It`s a good and already planned suggestion. :D


    Japanese pack will be made for sure, but I don`t know how soon will it be. :)

    I just use reference reconstruction/archaeological images to make units. :D
