    Default Gustave's carthaginian shields (Updated 12/10/2013 : compatibility with Patch 4)

    Hello all,
    I was a bit disappointed by Rome 2's carthaginian shields, compared to the other major factions they look kind of bland. So I decided to use some of the shields I made for Europa Barbarorum 2, a few years ago, to improve them. I really enjoy working on Rome 2's engine, the variations system is nice, so instead of simply porting the EB2's shields I created a lot of new ones as well. The goal is to make the carthaginians look better and more colorful, especially their elite units. The designs are all inspired from historical sources such as coins, reliefs and monuments.
    All credit for the historical research goes to the EB2 team’s historians, and especially Paullus.


    Some pics :

    All the shields !
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Sacred band




    Carthaginian hoplites




    Libyan hoplites




    Libyan peltasts and libyan late infantry




    African phalanx




    Cavalry


    I suggest using Athalwulf's Natural Dyes mod, which makes the carthaginian units look better and more realistic !

    Installation :
    Simply put the Gustave_Carthage_v3.pack file in your data folder (Steam\SteamApps\common\Total War Rome II\data), and use Mod Manager (http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...36-Mod-Manager) to activate it.It should be compatible with other mods as long as they don't modify the few units I've worked on. Have fun !

    Unbelievable beautiful, I'm speechless. I'm your official first fan now. Only the fact that it may not be integrated in important other Carthagian Mods is a shame.
    So only half my troops will look awesome as they should be.

    Btw, since you are working in th EB-Team... will there be an EB Mod for Rome 2, too?

    I don't know yet, but if I ever work on other factions they will be probably Athens and the Arverni.

    Nope, I don't think so. The team is already busy enough working on EB2.

    Wow. Very nice shields. Do you plan shields for other factions? I think about Romans, Italians, Easterns. They have lack of variety shields.

    I was also a bit dissapointed with the vanilla punic shields, yours are awesome. you have really did a good work! i hope that you will extend to other forgotten factions some day. Thank you for sharing them.

    Like I said I may want to make more shields in the future, maybe for the gauls or athens. But I'm not sure yet. These things take so much time !
