    It's Holmes - what more needs to be said?





    (The cape and hat are civ-coloured.)

    Get him here.

    This unit won Unit Of The Month January 2010!



    [EDIT] Vuldacon has kindly tidied up the sounds for this unit. I have put the altered ones in the file and re-uploaded it. He's also made a non-civ-coloured version, with a dark grey cape:



    Get the grey Holmes here.

    Blimey! Could he be fit into the Zombie Islans scenario somehow?

    I guess this is why you were saying you were 'busy' ;).

    Wow, that's a big coat. And I see that he remembered to bring the revolver. I thought that was Watson's job? :p

    :goodjob:As always you add a lot of character to your units, and the little animations (such as fidget) are well done and lifelike. Very nice!

    Egad! It's Holmes! Huzzah! Huzzah! Chuffed indeed! I am positively burbling with delight! Well done, good man! Well done!

    I could imagine an M-unit with this Holmes and Kinboat's Sherlock as Watson, but I'll be keeping them separate for now; they did do some things separately, you know... how else could Holmes fight Moriarty at the waterfall?

    Edit: Not to be particular Plotinus, but can you make a version in which the cape and deerstalker aren't civ-colored? It's showing up terrible in-game, unless I change the Civ color (which is white for the hero civ) ....

    Love those animations—very expressive. And, the cape movements in the attack are amazing. Good work.

    Looks terrific indeed! Nothing like Sherlock to bring back some great memories!

    @Balthasar: You can use Flicster to make non-civ coloured version pretty easily. Any particular color you want him? I can do so for you if you wish and PM you it if Plotinus doesn't mind of course.

    10 out of 10. He's amazingly lifelike - fluid movements and the evoking of a real sense of character.
