    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    .
    the roster is designed to have an equipment reform that supposedly occurred during/after the Gallic wars 58-51bc. the reform is from pointy to port style helms and spindle shaped to round shield bosses. the upgraded unit also has somewhat heavier armour combined, while there is still a crazy bare chested guy.
    slingers; young men/boys, no beards or Torcs.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    javelineers, young men, no beards or Torcs.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    spearmen, experienced warriors wearing Torcs, shields and some helmets. some bare chested, also when upgraded.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    swordsmen; basically the same as spearmen, but with swords...


    Generic Slavs, ca. 9th century.
    this is not actually a roster, it is the items used to generate the Slavic roster of WotN.

    My friend Absinthia your work quarandes that you will be tiered to count the reps sooner than you think!
    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.

    Those are great, plus rep!
    "WE WILL SMITE THE INVADERS FROM OUR SKIES! Though they sweep over our lands like the sands of winter, never again will we bow before them; never again endure their oppression; never again endure their tyranny. We will strike without warning and without mercy, fighting as one hand, one heart, one soul. We will shatter their dreams and haunt their nightmares, drenching our ancestors' graves with their blood. And as our last breath tears at their lungs; as we rise again from the ruins of our cities...they will know: Helghan belongs to the Helghast." -Scholar Visari

    Mughal helmet is amazing, as i have already said. It is a shame you decided to quit modeling, we need a modeler for Rise of the Mughals and your work would have added a big selling point.
    A new mobile phone tower went up in a town in the USA, and the local newspaper asked a number of people what they thought of it. Some said they noticed their cellphone reception was better. Some said they noticed the tower was affecting their health.

    A local administrator was asked to comment. He nodded sagely, and said simply: "Wow. And think about how much more pronounced these effects will be once the tower is actually operational."

    well, as you can see i did not quit modeling. i simply had to cut down on the various moding projects i was involved in.
    the mughal helmet is not quite finished and there are a couple more i would like to make. they sure had some wicked cool helmets, those mughals. helmets are a bit more tedious to skin, compared to mainly flat surfaces like swords, axes and shields.
    that in mind, i still intend to make those dhal shields we talked about earlier and probably some talwar swords.

    any way

    here are some shamshirs/scimitars that still requires some more work - The Great Conflicts

    Great news! Out of interest, how long does it take to make one of those weapons, roughly?

    between coffee and cigarettes, 2-3 hours i would say. unless i already have a model that can be easily adapted.
    for skins i use images of actual weapons and replicas. so the most part of the job is to edit the model shape so that the uv-map easily can be scaled to fit the texture.
