Man-at-arms to generic swordsman v1.2

File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Screenshot:
The idea behind this mod was to create a generic swordsman with a round shield that could be used for any number of roles. The DBA-on-line images which inspired this unit appear below the unit itself in the screenshot.

Updated: Shield backing is now a dark brown wood color. Corpses now have chainmail.

I couldn't figure out which anchors were causing the unit to bob while standing. The unit now moves very little when facing S, SE, or SW, but no longer bobs.

UPDATE2: I've added slp's which replace the two-handed swordsman graphics (which have the same number of frames as the Husklar and Champion among others). Just create you own mod with MPS and import the slp's for whichever unit you want to rplace (asuming it has the same number of frames).

I quite like this. It adds a more realistic looking unit that fits with the rest of AoK. Would serve better as a replacement of the huskarl.
Derfel Cadarn Although I haven't looked at this in-game yet, it looks excellent. Would you allow me to use these graphics for Age of Chivalry, if I credited your work?

Yes, feel free to use this unit as you wish.

@Sarn
Thanks for the review. I'll look at the anchors again and see if I can figure out what I did wrong there. The shield could be an easy improvement. As for the rotting frames I have trouble figuring out how to replicate AoK's fading and rotting and thus haven't done much with those frames on any of my units.

Fixed: Though the unit doesn't move much when standing now. This was done not just because I couldn't figure out the anchor issues, but because I was annoyed by the excesive glittering of the armour when barely moving.
Alos I went for dark brown for the shield backing since most shilds were made of wood.

Courtjester1 This is a really great looking unit. It could be used for a lot of things. Good job.
fr steve Fantastic! I didn't use it again for the moment but would like to for my mod. Thanks a lot for your work and your generousity Dave.
monsterslayer very well done swordsman looks more real than real huskarl it should replace berserk because looks a bit nordic.

Nope I don't feel picked on. Cut and paste is all I'm talented enough to do (that is I don't know how to 3-d model and am not artistic enough to make bitmap units from scratch).

These are all just units I'm making for my Romanain history campaign and since I'll be borrowing quite a bit of other peoples work, I wanted to share mine.

I was actually relatively pleased with the way this unit came out though.
mario_1998 how can i use this??
