Personally I dont think I could stand to look at Russell Crowe as any of my generals (unless I arm him with an AP telephone ). And why does Sean Bean look batpoo crazy?
It would add a lot to SS by having new portraits... it is a great idea. But when I want to see lord of the rings characters in my game, I will play TATW. I think it would be a lot better if you found portraits from actors who aren't so easily recognisable. There are plenty of movies set in medieval times to choose from. Under google images, look up old movies like the original Robin Hood and Ivanhoe, all the way to recent ones like Kingdom of Heaven.
Agree with Scorpius Centaurus. I'm no fan of actor portraits in the game.

Great work I'd love to see this realized, I agree with the above posters though.
Those look great, but I think I still prefer the ones from MTW(1). I'm talking about the nostalgia patch from RR/RC.

don't you know, does someone made portraits for princess?
Well I now have a total of 150 portraits (northern/southern/greek/eastern cultures) and slowly making progress (as I only have limited time due to RL commitments the process has been painstakingly slow ). I plan to release this mod once I reach 200 portraits. I've also redone some of the portraits to make them look a bit better; for an updated sample of my work please refer to OP.
I plan to include Cohorts princess portraits in this mod upon release. He has done a very good job on princess portraits.Originally Posted by Anubis
Great Idea... I was playing BC the other day and I was thinking how awesome it would be to have portraits like that in SS. I wonder if the BC team would let you use their portraits for the CS, the cumans, and the muslim factions? I would suggest staying away from the Lotr character portraits but it is your submod and, thus, your decision.
Got a few portraits from "Born of Hope" not exactly LOTR ( but I suppose based on LOTR), some of the actors look very "Slavic" and are relatively unknown, mostly used them for eastern European cultures. The portrait of Sean Bean in OP is actually from "Black Death" and not LOTR (if that's what you're implying). I must admit though I did make a portrait of Faromir and Aragorn but that is pretty much as far as it goes for the LoTR portraits (you certainly won't see any elves or dwarves and such)

can you post a link to the other portraits
V.1.00 available for download in OP. Please let me know if you have any problems with anything regarding this mod. *Note I plan to continue to make General Portraits and will be updating as appropriate. Hopefully this mod will be able to grow into something. ENJOY

Is it save game compartible?
Marilyn Monroe should definitely be used for a Princess portrait
Hey guys, the link for the descr_cultures.txt up there is not working, any alternatives?
