    Woah, those allied cavalry (among others) look ahistorical!

    Why are the Thorakitai unarmored?

    Other than that and the allied cavalry + the hoplites using a Macedonian phalanx, great units!

    Ive comitted and fixed the error, the unit in question isn't the Thorakitai but the Thuerophoroi
    And about the combat style and phalanges (Allied cav + hoplite) it's a problem of skeletons &annimations that haven't yet been changed (in fact ive used the horrible vanilla ones).
    Also names are still placeholders and have to be reworked.

    Hail the mighty lands of Syrakusai. Nice preview I look forward on what's to come. Plus do you intend to do updates to the cities, most mods lack city planning...
    I wear the chain I forged in life, I made it link by link and yard by yard. Is it's pattern strange to you? How would you know of length of the strong coil you bear yourself? It was as full, as heavy, and as long as this seven christmas eve's ago, you have labored on it since, it's a ponderous chain!

    to the time of the punic wars the oplita siracusano of elite was equal to the oplita spartano but with the inverted colors of the shield.

    apart this good job really

    Do you really want an anwser? As you can see, we dont have a model/skinner team like RS, RTR, EB. So we have to either ask permission or fine some way.

    Woah, those allied cavalry (among others) look ahistorical!
    Ugh guys come on, we dont have skinners n modelers so we cant have historical looking units. We're doing the best we can.

    Can you give the Milita Hoplites a different shield skin? I never liked the polka dot one.
    Still looking very good though. The Elite Hoplites are great.

    I like the concept,just feel colour would be cool. The Epibatai is only unit that I do not like,as looks plain the helmet type.

    Hoping all of your guys and girls out there are OK and your family in RL?
