    Gandhi, Qin and Kublai.

    I hate hate it when Kublai bares his teeth and his hair looks like a wig.

    I love how ET has become synonymous with Gandhi already

    Bwa ha ha Boss Nash was inmediatly my first thought as well

    Kristina is the fracking weirdo sitting at the back of home room drawing endless pictures of your face

    Ghengis is some sort of Frog Man. The way he talks even sounds like ribbit ribbit, RiBBBITTT RIBIT ribbit.

    Some of them are pure genius though, like Alexander the Surfer Pharma Bro Hybrid, or Diabetus Wilhelmina.

    Cleopatra has Morning After Tired Party Girl Eyes. I don’t know how they did it, but they nailed that look. I always want to instinctivly cook her breakfast.

    Teddy Roosevelt is a Gruff Grampa. He needs a pipe to complete the picture.

    Not sure why. E.T. is cute. No need to disrespect him like that by comparing him to Gandhi. :p

    I don't remember Boss Nass in Rise of Skywalker or even Attack of the Clones. :shifty:

    Very much so this. Only a handful of leaders look objectively bad, but the real problem is that they need to pick an art style and stick with it.

    Agreed. Gandhi is more like the love child of ET and a troll doll. :p

    Hammurabi's mean look seems purposeful by the artists and I don't get it - he looks so evil.

    I would actually like to register a complaint about Peter. He looks smarmy and gross. Peter was actually more attractive in person; they should have made him more of a beanpole (he was very tall) with a younger face, as reflected in his better portraits. See: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Peter_I_by_Kneller.jpg <3

    I agree Alex's face could use some work but the swagger and animations make him attractive. He also seemed to be designed with an attractive gay male aesthetic on purpose which I appreciate given his sexuality.

    I agree Cyrus is great, and I agree that Poundmaker may indeed be the best one.

    But let me take a moment to complement the Suleiman's smize (in his default pose). I feel like he's looking deep into my soul with red hot passion.

    I actually love Ghandi's look!

    I'm also now realizing that the animations factor hugely into whether I think the model is attractive (e.g., Kristina) - which is why you can't judge someone's online dating profile without meeting them in person lol

    Well, ignoring how some leaders have skin colors that don't seem to fit where they are from, one thing that annoys me is that it seems some leader's animations are at different framerates? I notice this specifically with Shaka. Whenever Shaka does a leader scene, it seems to go at like 10 fps compared to the other leader's normal framerate. There are a few others that do this too but I can't remember who they are... am I just imagining it?

    Not sure why they made Wilhelmina so fat and Victoria so normal. If anything, they should be switched. I agree, Peter should be real tall, that's why he is called "The Great".

    Some leaders look kind of realistic (Teddy Roosevelt, Poundmaker etc) but some just look a bit too cartoonishly exaggerated (Gilgamesh, Kublai, etc). I miss the more realistic looking leaders and scenes from Civ 5.

    You spelled The Last Jedi wrong. :p
    Unless the Han Solo movie counts. :shifty:

    At least you can tell Wilhelmina is Dutch from the orange color of her skin. They went all out with her. :mischief:

    Rise of Skywalker made me forgive all of The Last Jedi's problems. RoS seriously made me straight up hate Star Wars after Rebels and Mandalorian had brought me so close to liking it again...

    :lol: Fun story. My maternal grandfather's family is of Dutch descent (going all the way back to New Netherland, if I'm not mistaken), and my maternal grandfather absolutely loves the color orange. He once did a kitchen with orange countertops. He'd have his entire house orange if my grandmother didn't object. He had no idea that orange was the Dutch national color.

    How long did you keep your hands in the swimming pool, Qin?

    It was probably from ingesting mercury, not swimming. :mischief:

    Oh god, glad to see I'm not alone with my animosity towards Qin Shi Huang. For the longest time now when setting up games I almost never included China because I didn't even want to see his face. That's why I was kind of glad when they announced an alternate leader for China... hey, maybe now I can include China in my games! Though if this thread is anything to go by the reception for Kublai Khan seems pretty frosty as well...

    Qin is a bad model?

    I vote on Rough Rider Teddy overall and Kublai's face in particular.
