    This is a conversion of Kinboats Panda Warrior. As usual ( :rolleyes: ) the palette of the preview is limited, the unit has more colours than this. No civ colours, though...
    I have no sounds for it, if anyone has please share them. :cool:

    a great conversion - a bear is certainly more useful than a panda for scenarios.

    @Winter: it's not a proper bear, i e it walks plods on the back legs, not on all four, but I hope you can use it anyway. :)

    I've tried doing this once myself, but didn't get nearly as good results as you did. Good job!

    Great Conversion mrtn... The face and the other (orange-brown) body areas could be colored the same as the darker brown color on the Bear to remove the Panda markings but what you have done looks good.

    This was a very fast job, 90 minutes for the whole thing. Of course you could make it better if you fixed every frame, but then you'd have to put some time into it. ;)
    I think it's good to keep at least traces of the panda markings, this way you don't make it just one colour and keep some sort of 3d feel. If you see what I mean.

    Lycanthropic? You mean it looks like a werebear? That would be a nasty surprise to run into when opening a goodie hut!

    Great conversion of a great unit, I have to say.
    I think Panda could be used easily for Chinese based scenarios, but I don't know too much on them.

    Here's a sound file that might be useful. You'll need to chop it up with Goldwave or something.
    Great unit!
