    Hey Sai,

    Have you ever heard of Gráinne Ní Mháille (Grace O'Malley), the Irish Pirate Queen? She's quite a figure in Irish history, and she would make a nice addition to an Irish/Celtic civ. Not only that, but she be a pirate, arrrr. :lol: She could go along with the pirate LH that you've already made.

    This is what she apparently looked like:
    Grace-O'Malley(2)200.jpg

    And of course, the Dido/Boudica version for all of the boys to admire: :yumyum: :drool: :lol:

    And some history....

    See what happens when I go to museums? :mischief:

    Interesting, but I'm a bit short on other female pirate models at the moment and also I'm not in the right mood to create a whole new LH. What I could do however is change the head of my Delahaye leaderhead by mirroring the left side of her face in order to give her two good eyes and get rid of the pirate hat. There are two alternative versions of the Atlantica pirate from whom I could copy the upper part of the head, which one would you prefer?
    Spoiler :





    Of course the background would be changed to something Irish as well. Also, I could get rid of that shoulder girdle thingy like the first of the two alternative versions.

    Methinks the first one is the best looking. :)

    As been requested, here is a modified version of the Delahaye leaderhead. Beside exchanging some of the meshes I also toyed a bit with the colors to make her look a bit more like the second image of Gráinne Ní Mháille. I hope you all like the result.

    A pirate who prefers free market - for a certain definition of "free" at least :lol:

    Good LH, though! :goodjob:

    Great leaderheads! Is a Delahaye with red hair (instead of purple) without the eye patch possible?

    Nice one!

    I was about to use the Pirate LH as Grace O'Malley, but I uguess you saved me some work there.

    OMG! Sai, I was hoping for just the graphics at best, and you did the whole thing. Thank you! What a beautiful job!

    Thank you very very much! I hope that everyone else likes her as much as I do.

    Thank you all, I'm glad you like the modifications. :)
    Those were not part of the deal. ;)

    But seriously, lots of these models I convert are just too "female". I had to resize her bust size quite a bit to make her look halfway realistic. :rolleyes:
    Well, the free market gives her the most ships to capture. ;)
    Glad to hear that. :)
    Sure it is:

    I've added the files to the Delahaya download, hope you like her. :)
    Always glad to be of service. ;)
    Sure thing, why not go all the way when I'm already at it. :mischief: I'm glad that you like the result. :)

    Just played a game with the new Delahye as an AI opponent. I definitely appreciate you going to the trouble of making the second version of her, and don't want to gripe... but her newly uncovered eye tends to not match what the other one is doing quite often - kind of like a lazy eye. I figured it would just be a matter of opening the .dds file and adjusting the second eyes' position a bit, but the eye patch is still there (minus the part going across her forehead). So I'm guessing the right side of her face is being mirrored somewhere in the animation files?

    I am by no mean an expert in working with .kfm files, so if what I'm saying is totally wrong I apologize. :crazyeye: Anyway, if it isn't too much to ask, could you possibly take a look at this? If not that's alright too, I'll just go back to the original version.

    Thanks!! :goodjob:

    Ah, yes, you are right, I've should have tested the leaderhead a bit more, thank you for pointing it out. :) I've fixed the eyes and attached the new version to this post and exchanged the files in the download as well.

    Time for a new leaderhead everybody.
    Spoiler :





    I had to dig a bit deeper for a fitting historical person for this one, but I hope I found a suitable one with Quilago. Although she fought against them, I've added her as a leader to the Inca, since there is no other more fitting civ. Let's see it as an alternative version of the Inca empire if she is the leader. ;)

    And because there is no wikipedia entry for her, I had to invest a bit more work in her background infos this time. I hope the result is at least half-decent. :mischief:

    As always, more information can be found in the download section.

    The best thing in Saibotliehs Leaders is, that you are always learning about new historical leaders and get a great leaderhead in addition. The Inca were one of the few civilizations I still missed a female leaderhead.

    Zulu,Mali,Khmer,Korea,Ottomans,Arabia and Ethiopia still have no female leaderheads.
    -Zulu?No queen regnant.
    -Mali?No queen regnant.
    -Khmer?Maybe Queen Soma or Queen Jyestha.
    -Korea?Queen Seondeok
    -Ottomans?Maybe Roxelana?
    -Arabia?...?There was no female caliph,I suggest Shajar al-Durr.
    -Ethiopia?Makeda,Gudit,Zewditu?
