    Ohhhh.... It's so hard to choose beween the Aztec Knight and the Roman Officer! (BTW, you said "April" in the thread title, it's supposed to be"May").

    Is there a way to edit poll questions? Otherwise: it pronounced 'May', but is WRITTEN as 'April'... :lol:

    I went for the Aztec Knight, solid animation with great, original modelling, it's one of those units you'll forget Firaxis didn't make it.

    The Etiopian Javelineer came very close for me...

    I like the Ethiopian Javelin, not only because it is one of the very few Sub-Saharan African units available but the javelin attack animation seems to be expertly done. :)

    Utahjazz's Aztec knight was a close second.

    I vote for the Keeper of Secrets.

    Hold on a sec... aaglo didn't enter it! Guess I'll have to vote for the flying carpet then. :)

    Another great competition this month guys. All of those units are wonderful contributions to the Civ world. :thumbsup:

    Aztec Knight for me. The rider is very well done. The shield is very cool.

    Thank you - I'm very touched that anyone would think my unit superior to Utahjazz's excellent one, or indeed any of the fine work on display here. It really is a big boost when you're not much experienced at this sort of thing.

    i think that would have been my choice for second. It's not far short of Utah's. Another really good unit!

    Well, I never reinstalled Poser after my computer crashed a couple months back, but it's become more and more tempting lately. I may have to dig up the cd over the weekend. It's been so long since I've put together a unit though, I'd probably have to go through utah's tutorial. ;)
