Round Shield Longswordsman

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Screenshot:
This just gives the longswordsman an elite skirmisher's shield.

SLPs are included and it isn't password protected, use as you like.

Just use MPS to install.

Wes337 made a similar mod back in 01' but used a throwing axeman's head too. Unfortunately his version had some clear spots and the axeman head was backwards half the time. So I made this one myself.

I plan to edit him slightly giving him a curved sword and a pointed helmet to transform him into a Bulgarian, Magyar, or other Eastern Nomad swordsman.

I've noticed quite a few copy and paste units uploaded to the blacksmith lately. It's great people are modding AOK more frequently and I'm thoroughly looking forward to some of the upcoming mod packs.

However, no matter how many new units pop up in the blacksmith lately nothing really inspires me or takes my fancy.

This file in particular, technically is one of the better ones of late. It works without any flaws that I could notice and is quite clean and polished in the graphics (I.e. no floaty bits or cut off parts).

The downside: It's so unimaginative. Its boring and serves no extra purpose. It's literally a different shield on the longswordsman. Amazing? No. When playing in game do I get a sense of overwhelming awesomness? No. The point of it? None.

It's technically a good attempt. Imagination leaves much to be desired.

Additional Comments:

What you see is what you get? Would I recommend downloading? Personally I'd say, does it really matter? Yes or no, it's up to you.

Perhaps if this unit was released in a full unit pack with other replacements as well as this one, there might have been a theme going and would be more enjoyable and I would have rated it higher.
