    I can't find anything on the Bac(k)trian flying Devils off of Google, where did you get the information on these guys. They woul be a great addition to the Baktrian roster if we can find info on them.

    There was something about it on History channel, it was a Calvary unit that supposedly matched the Companians, in the siege of Bactria.

    Interesting. I suppose Dime will have to choose whether or not they will be included.

    If he does that'll be a great improvment to the game itll be alot better im my opinion.

    Re 'Flying devils' i believe the Baktrians can already recruit cataphract camels, which sounds like they might be based on this unit?

    Dime - are you going to stick with imitation legionaries for Armenia, Pontus and Seleucids? I don't go along with everything that EB come up with, but their treatment of these guys as being Thorakitai makes more sense than full copy roman equipment IMHO - especially that savoury looking seleucid unit with the chain mail face mask.

    Tip: If you like an unit from another mod your chances of seeing it in XGM will be higher if you contact the author and ask for permissions...

    I've been working on something like that - based off the old Parthian Immortals unit. Still needs some work though.

    Looks fine - sword rather than spear? Would Seleucids have used the Kopis rather than a straight sword, or was that just a cavalry sword?

    Zarax - EB and roma surrectum have so many damn fine skins that I may as well ask for the lot! (RS - Parthian cataphracts - drool). One idea that seems to have slipped a bit was asking whether Riczu would allow his ship models in to XGM. Having a lot of naval activity as Sabeans and they would look sooooooo good.

    That's pretty good DBH, having the infamous silver shield thorakitai would help the seleucids to get something to stomp those lowly rebel satrapies with...
    About the other eastern legionaries you could use the schythian lancer or kappadocian cavalry model as base, it should work fine.
    With a few touches it would also be a much more accurate model for the iberian lancers who are in need of some more love...

    Why do the swords in RTW look so awkward? It just doesn't seem right... Or am I just being ignorant to history at the moment?

    Hippias: I think that's the sword from the Greek Sacred Band model. A Kopis would be nice though.

    Cymera: The vanilla swords are pretty uninteresting. CA didn't really make an effort to model the different types, like the gladius or the kopis.

    The Silver shield thorakitai used Gallic longswords. Same with the hypapistai. I imagine the thorakitai would use a kopis.

    Hey dime, do you use 3dsmax for your models? Oh when i tried to use a model from another mod i got a generic error about not having skin.bmp in my models_unit/texture folder. Does that have to do with with the skeleton line in descr_model_battle?
