    This was a pack I have been working on for a long time. Due to its size its taken awhile to get it released, I had help from Tom, AnthonyBoscia, and Ares without them this pack may have never been released. Also I did and re-did many units the more I read about Meso American military history.

    The first and second releases are up. Possible future releases may be Northwest Indians, Eskimos and Plains Indians.

    The Olmecs (1500-400 BC)
    Spoiler :
    This pack was quite hard, the Olmec didn't leave a lot, the units were based on the few statues and head busts I could find.

    Toltec (800 - 1000AD) & Teotihuacan (150-700AD)

    Mexica/Aztecs (1428-1521)
    Spoiler :
    The word "Aztec" is a modern invention and would not have been recognized by the people themselves. It has variously been used to refer to the Triple Alliance empire, the main ethnic group called themselves Mexica. The units were based on Osprey books.
    Pictured: Mexica Warrior, Mexica Huitzauhqui (long sword/glave), Mexica Spearman, Mexica Atlatl, Mexica Archer

    Elite Warriors of the Mexica (1428-1521)
    Spoiler :
    Mexica commoners excelling in warfare could be promoted to the noble class and could enter some of the warrior societies (at least the Eagles and Jaguars). Sons of nobles trained at the Calmecac however were expected to enter into one of the societies as they progressed through the ranks. Warriors could shift from one society and into another when they became sufficiently proficient; exactly how this happened is uncertain. Each society had different styles of dress and equipment as well as styles of body paint and adornments.

    Eagle and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar_warrior
    Aztec warriors were called a cuāuhocēlōtl. The word cuāuhocēlōtl derives from the Eagle warrior cuāuhtli and the Jaguar Warrior ocēlōtl. Those Aztec warriors who demonstrated the most bravery and who fought well became either jaguar or eagle warriors after capturing four captives during battle. Of all of the Aztec warriors, they were the most feared. Both the jaguar and eagle Aztec warriors wore distinguishing helmets and uniforms. The jaguars were identifiable by the jaguar skins they wore over their entire body, with only their faces showing from within the jaguar head. The eagle Aztec warriors, on the other hand, wore feathered helmets including an open beak.

    Otomies
    The Otomies were another warrior society who took their name after the Otomi people who were renowned for their fierce fighting. In the historical sources it is often difficult to discern whether the word otomitl "Otomi" refers to members of the Aztec warrior society, or members of the ethnic group who also often joined the Aztec armies as mercenaries or allies.

    The Shorn Ones
    The "Shorn Ones" (Cuachicqueh) was the most prestigious warrior society; their heads were shaved apart from a long braid over the left ear. Their bald heads and faces were painted one half blue and another half red or yellow. They served as imperial shock troops, and took on special tasks as well as battlefield assistance roles when needed. Over 6 captives and dozens of other heroic deeds were required for this rank. They apparently turned down captaincies in order to remain constant battlefield combatants. Recognizable by their yellow tlahuitzli. They had sworn not to take a step backwards during a battle on pain of death at the hands of their comrades.

    Texcocoan Noble Warrior
    Texcoco was one of the cities of the Aztec Triple Alliance, the unit was based on a picture of Nezahualcoyotl a king of Texcoco. It has no real historical basis, I just liked the costume, and at first thought it was a Tlaxcalan warrior, not a Texcoco king.

    Pictured: Eagle Knight, Jaguar Knight, Elite Jaguar Knight (there is no basis for the name, I just didn't want to say "blue Jaguar knight, the color may not mean anything), Otomi Atlatl, Cuachicqueh, Texcocoan Noble Warrior

    The Moche (100-700AD)
    Spoiler :
    These warriors carry bronze and copper/gold alloy weapons. The Moche and their decedents Chimu worshiped the Moon as the main deity. the The Owl warrior was based on this figure.

    The Wari (500-1100AD)
    Spoiler :
    The Wari Empire was a political formation that emerged around AD 600 in the central highlands of Peru and lasted for about 500 years, to 1100 AD. It operated about the same time as the Tiwanaku culture and at one time was thought to have been derived from it. In 2008 archeologists found a prehistoric city, the Northern Wari ruins, also called Cerro Pátapo, near modern Chiclayo. The find was the first to show an extensive settlement related to the Wari culture that far north and demonstrate that they had a long span of influence.

    This pack includes an Archer, its really just a bonus, the Inca would have used Jungle tribesmen for their archers.

    I had to pinch myself in the arm.

    This is one of the best unit packs I've seen.

    Thank you, I hope they can find a nice home.

    Thanks, and I await your PM ;)

    Thanks, yes the priests and warrior priests are going to be for these Civs: Inca, Mexica, Maya, Mixtec, Tlaxcala, and some SW American tribes. But Eventually I want to get to all the world religions.

    In the OP I talk about the "Resistance" pack, its mostly already done, but I'm not happy with my Maya Musketman, so I'm looking around for inspiration. But it will only represent the 16-17th century.

    I also want to make artillery for the SW Indians, Maya, and Inca.

    Thank you for your hard work gentlemen.

    I think you have long since established yourself as one of the great artists of Civfanatics Shiro. If anyone doubted that before, point them to this pack!

    I am sorry I wasn't of any help with this btw.
