    This is a villainous character, possibly armed with some Madeira.





    Get him here.

    This unit was also voted joint Best Industrial/Modern Unit ever!

    The great spy fashioned in a classic way. :) Thank you very much, Plotinus!
    Having thousands of ancient chariots doesn't guarantee you victory. But having a great spy can guarantee you won't be defeated.
    Thank you, Plotinus. :)

    I knew a guy in college who actually dressed like that. Freaking theater majors.

    Also, cool unit.

    That's a great unit, Plotinus. I love the model and the animations.

    Plotinus, that's absolutely delightful, a wonderful and cheeky realization of a Victorian villain. I laughed right out loud when I saw him 'sneaking' along. You've really developed quite a talent with the capes. This one is seamless as usual - for some reason the cape work reminds me of the 'Hobbit thief' (which is probably the wrong name, since I can't find it in the database).

    I have many many more complimentary things to say, but suffice to say that IMHO this is the ULTIMATE Victorian unit!

    Delightful!

    May I request a unit similar to this one, except greyer, more ragged and down on his heels, and armed with a small bomb which he hurls at capitalist oppressors? I'm sure my mod is not alone in being able to use an Anarcho-Syndicalist.

    This would make a good JTR.

    Reminds me of in the new Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Moriarty, I think it is. Correct me if I'm mistaken. Maybe if you added a concealed pistol attack...

    But great unit nonetheless! :goodjob:

    I think you've just described Ruby Sauce's Bomb Thrower, which, by the way, will fill the role of anarcho-syndicalist bomb-tosser in the Steampunk mod as well (upgrades to worker attack). :smoke:

    Plotinus... Excellent animations that convey the Character of this unit very well! Really like the Sneaky Run and Falling forward for the Death :goodjob:
