    @Steph: Thanks :)

    He's the Assyrian Swordsman. The iron boss on a white shield didn't look too right (the first bronze swordsman was what I used as the base, and changed the colours from that, so I could see what that looked like). I think I'll just make the shield red for both of them.

    On the Assyrian Spearman, I'm actually probably going to scrap the model I've got, and use the Assyrian Swordsman's model as a base; it will make them more uniform, and I like the Swordsman's model better (also, I think the texture map is already quite good for him)

    As for the Sherdan, I'm not sure what I want to do. I think I'll make two versions of him: One as he is now (the most a-historical), because I like the look of him, even if he is not quite so historical, and one where he's got the more "historical" look. This shouldn't be too time-consuming, hopefully, and should also give an iron-age "upgrade" to the Sea People in some ancient scenarios :)

    the color makes him look like a viking. I think you should make the shield iron or bronze. Also the shield shape looks conical in the Assyrian images, maybe up the cone prop on top of the shield and morph it a bit.

    I'm not sure I see the resemblance to Vikings myself...

    The conical shape on the shield cannot be increased independently from the shield itself, but I could add in a primitive which would fit the bill :)

    Looking better! If you can make it more conical, that would be cool. If not, oh well.

    What about a leathery brown colour for the shield with some kind of nifty tracing on it?

    I don't think I can make it any more conical, sadly, as all the cone props I have are non-hollow, so would look incredibly strange :(



    Made the boss on his shield bigger, and added a rim around the shield. Does that make it less Viking-like? :)

    I'm not liking my texture on it, I can't map the cone though..

    You can put another cone ontop of the first cone and change the color of one to give it more of an appearance of the shield of the swordsman above.
