    although i personally prefer the more dynamic, in-action depiction of the warrions on the cards, yours do look great, well done.

    i'd agree with that, moving a tad to the right should still leave at least half a shield visible?

    good job

    I personally don't have any issue with that and he explained why he did it that way, also he would need to redo everything...

    Wow. EB2 will now feel totaly different for me when playing it. Uniformity of cards is such important thing for me...

    New cards for the Arverni:



    I know all the swords don't have the same position, but it's much harder to find the good pose for swordsmen due to the different lengths of blade.

    I tried to move the arm closer, but then I remembered why I had chosen this position in the first place. It's because when the arm is too close from the body, it messes with the model so you see the skin through the tunic. I could edit the picture like I do for other flaws but then it would be even much longer to do one card. I'll keep doing it this way, sorry. =)

    I know I'm going slowly, but sometimes it's pretty hard to find the good models or textures because of changes in the naming of the unit or abbreviations. In some cases, I simply couldn't find the textures or models so i had to let go.

    PS: I gave the Ligurian spearmen the pose of a skirmisher unit because that's what is displayed on the recruitment viewer, but maybe it's an error.

    Great cards.
    You know that if you have milkshape, GOAT 1.1 and Photoshop/GIMP you can make any kind of UI card in any stance you wish?
    Even on horses.
    Here is an example:

    See that both UI cards are same and with much detail. The secret is to reduse digital noice of the image before make it a UI card.
    Also nottice the UI cards of horsearcher.

    All you need is petience and experiments.

    There are moments (in history), in which a nation owes,
    if it wants to be considered as a great one, to be able to fight.
    Even without hope of winning. Just because it has to.
    Greek War motto.
    XXI Armored Brigade. Proud that served in that unit in 1996!
    "Spartans do not ask how many (enemies are) but where they are"!
    XXI Armored Brigade's motto.
    The Greek Secret (or why they will fight again if it will be necessary or why they do not sell their history).

    Wow, the detail of these cards is stunning! Which mod is this? I like the way sword and javelins are displayed together.

    You have to know that I'm very new at this. I have neither the knowledge nor the tools do to much better. For example, I don't know what is GOAT, I don't have PS and I don't even know how to open mounted units. In the beginning, my idea was to make pictures for the info panel but I wasn't satisfied with the result so I decided to focus on the unit cards instead. I still have plenty of cards to do so I'll have the time to get better, I guess.

    Reducing the digital noise sounds like a great advice, I'll look into it.

    No roster in entirely done so it wouldn't make much sense, I'm sorry. The aim of this being to give more uniformity and polishing to EBII, it would be contradictory to mix old and new cards, don't you think? =)

    These are looking great! Just be careful to work at a comfortable pace with them, completing them is more important than generating them quickly.
    It began on seven hills - a historical house-ruled Romani AAR
    Heirs to Lysimachos - a semi-historical Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR
    Philetairos' Gift - a second attempt at an Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR

    I agree with you, but I also feel the need to make regular updates to keep the machine going.
