WTF is that supposed to mean?Originally Posted by mod description
I hope it is not meant to be serious.
They look pretty dark to me.
But, in all seriousness, I'd recommend you stick to the classical version of WoS, because I doubt you'll like the movie version.
I'd stick with classical version by the looks of it
So I ask you... Why would you think that I would think you that you... um... Wait, I'm confused here.
Who's thinking what now?

That's not abuse, I gave you the chance to offer something which you have.
Your theory is easily disproved by the fact the Persians were an invading force who didn't exactly charm the Greeks out of their lands. Bright clothing may have been worn but was more likely only as ceremonial dress rather than battle fatigues.
Anyway, in many ways the greeks were darker than the persians. It isn't "good greeks vs evil persians".
It was more like "irritating part of greeks vs irritated persians". And many greek states were under persian overlordship.
stick with classical version
Have you actually played this mod?
Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
I'm sorry that the description of the mod is personally so upsetting to you. But unless someone comes up with a good argument to change it, it will stay as is.Yes, I have. And I actually don't care about the represantation of them as long as the gameplay is good (which it is), what I don't like, however, is the description on the forums.
I did a fair bit of research into that image and never found one case were it was refuted. So you will need to supply supporting evidence to the contrary.
The description implies the Persians were evil. As about the picture, IIRC it is clearly stated by our old friend Herodotus that the Anusyia were promoted from the regular infantry, but had better equipment and, ofcourse training. Which means it is very unlikely they carried all the weapons at once - there were the first few ranks of melee troops, and after them there were archers, like in the regular infantry. Oh, and the dyplon was a wooden shield with a heavy bronze boss, rather than a wicker one, which is shown in the picture. The wicker shields (Spara) were large and rectangular.
And what's with the hybrid crab unit???
Persia was never a slave country, and slavery was forbidden in all Persian lands. Simultaneously, slavery was practiced in all Greek city-states, even in so-called "democracies".
