    This unit should come in between the normal archer and and the longbowman/crossbowman. Many mods could use it too im sure. There is made a Robin Hood unit, but I think it looks a bit to specific, we need a generic one.

    Some examples of what I would like, 3 is my own favourite:)

    1.)
    2.)
    3.)

    Notice that im looking for a unit thats not late medieval. This should be more for the Dark Age(pre 1150):)

    All four suggestions are really nice and worth considering. We can even assign them to different cultures!

    just as a note, the first picture is best- it applies to the most cultures that used a model of archer as such- it looks like its a western european, perhaps Norman based archer, but would certainlly be the best medieval archer replacement for European, and Med. civs (barring Egypt)

    Xen actually Med. unit look more like this(see attached pic), I know its a crossbowman, but he has the right look anyway. That first Archer is Viking, and I think he looks very Scandinavian to me. Ilike the 3rd one best, because it is the one that looks most generic IMHO.

    The French Longbow is gonna be nice, but not exactly very Dark Age alike(and it will look too french), which is too bad:(

    well, it depends on what area you know ;)- your archer in his pany hose is perfectlly fine for the high middle ages- but I prefer the rough and tough dark ages for my medieval units ;)
