    Well, actually what Leonardo was thinking about was an improvement of the concept, something like some sort of repeating "organ gun" ..

    I am also very interested if there will be horse armors with neck protection with horses.

    New artilery seems very interesting.

    Great scenes. Humble advice. Please make the metal horse armors shorter (up to the body level) to be shown more accurate and more natural.
    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).

    Thanks for you ruggestion Antonius; we are actually reshaping horses' armours, and provide a variety of medium-level and heavy armours. The peytral (protecting chest) and the croupière (protecting hind quarters) will be based on contemporary historical representations (e.g. the illustrations of the Hesperis by Basinius Parmensis) actual extant pieces (e.g. the armours by Lorenz Helmschmid or Missaglia).
    We are discussing the eventual presence of full of half-caparisoned horses for generals and high-profile condottieri.

    possibly I will find a way to extract horse skeletons and animate 3d models when they will be definitive, so you can look at them. Anyway, contemporary sources shows armours that were not so small.

    In order to create a scene with a horse stance other that default you can use the same method that we use human skeletons to create UIs.
    In fact if you have milkshape and take the rider and press the button of milkshape "merge" and select a factional horse both models apear with their skeletons and with milkshape buttons "rotate", "move" etc when you double click on a spesific bone of either the rider's or the horse's you can create a "sculpture" that will be taken as an image to make a good presentation.
    JUST DO NOT FORGET TO PRESS NO when your screenshot will be taken and milkshape will ask you to save the "new" model.
    This is an example of a standard horse render with its skeleton removed to create UI cards.


    I remember that once i created a "diorama" with 2 cataphracts one standing on the ground and his horse head was down near his hand and the other was one the horse in "motion". Ofcourse the diorama was made by two such merged models and adjusted with Photoshop.
    Another example of dioramas:

    Every single model took its pose with the skeleton move buttons including the horses. Then one by one it took its place into the diorama.
    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.

    Thanks for the advice! (and wonderful pictures, i love them!)
    What tool you used to convert horse models retaining their skeleton? i use the M2TWMT 0.6B, but that does not rebuild the skeletons (or it does?)
    To create previews I usually reconvert the models using the Mesh to M3sd converter, which only has a default human skeleton and does not recognize the existence of horse skeletons. Should I use the GOAT?
