Hey all, I'm a massive sucker for Shaka and his Zulus, and I'm a huge fan of the ancient-era Zulu units already floating around, so I thought I'd make some what-if medieval ones too for your Redcoat-massacring pleasure! A lot of the mesh edits were taken from other units, the maceman face (by sezereth) and mace comes from the FFH team (and an idea by avain), and lots of stuff cannibalised from Firaxis, so thanks everyone! Crossbowman (uses crossbowman animations) Spoiler : Longbowman (uses longbowman animations) Spoiler : Maceman (uses Dog Soldier animations) Spoiler : Knight (uses heavycavalry animations - included) Spoiler : NEW! Javelineer as an archer replacement (uses mongolian_javelinthrower animations - included) Spoiler : NEW! Pikeman (uses spearman or impi animations - choose the appropriate nif) Spoiler : I also included an African spearman reskin I did - it's a minor edit of a very awesome existing unit (the original was done by sepamu, I believe), I just redid some of the bare skin to make it closer to the texturing style used for the other african units African spearman (uses spearman animations) Spoiler : Smashing some Redcoats! Spoiler : DOWNLOAD EXTRAS Spoiler : A few more! I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR THESE, they took me maybe only an hour's work total, and all the hard work was done by others. I just wanted to fill out the Zulu lineup for my own purposes, and thought I'd share... EDIT: Now updated, with a couple of small changes to the elephant (war paint and recolouring), a colourscheme adjustment to the cannon (to differentiate it from the grenadier), and a light olive uniform for the antitank There were two awesome choices for Zulu war elephants; the EDU team's awesome African elephant (with the big ears), and Chugginator's elephant with an amazingly cool Zulu carriage. So I stuck the two together so I wouldn't have to choose any more I know Zerver made an African cannon with the african rifleman skin, but I couldn't resist making one using Bakuel's African grenadier skin, which is one of my favourite reskins from any civ. The antitank and the paratrooper are just the standard models with african faces pasted on top of them. They're not really unique, and the antitank looks pretty silly with a Zulu warrior in a Wehrmacht uniform, but it's a little bit of an improvement, I think. DOWNLOAD For the sake of completeness, I also just thought I'd add in this African technical. All the credit for this goes to asioasioasio - he made this fantastic model and the excellent original skin; I just changed the drivers and put teamcolour on the vehicle, and fiddled with the details a bit. Teamcolour (faint) is over the entire paintjob, and I've only tested the colours with the african countries - it may look funny for other civs. Anyway, I'm using it as the mech. inf. replacement for african civs, but you can of course use it for whatever Here's the download, here's the model's original thread.
