This is my first modded unit. It is a middle-eastern looking horseman that replaces the AOK knight unit. The slp files have also been included in the download, in case you want to use it while keeping the original knight graphics available.
As you can see, it consists basically of the knight's horse graphic mounted by the camel rider's.
There are a few issues which I haven't been able to solve, mainly the anchor points which aren't perfect (even though I tried hard to make them as less disturbing as possible), and the fact that when the knight dies in a certain position, the decay graphics don't coincide exactly with the dying ones (a problem which I think pertains to data and the original AOK knight also has it).
Enjoy and feel free to use it in your scenarios, crediting me would be appreciated.
( NOTE: To use the files in this download, you need to have mod pack system installed on your computer, which you can download here: http://aok.heavengames.com/blacksmith/showfile.php?fileid=5537 )
If anyone can spare the time to do a review for this, it would be appreciated.

I like the Camel Rider, except that it looks awkward.

This modpack changes the Knight to an Arabic Knight, using the Camel and Knight graphics to create Middle-Eastern looking horseman.
Usefulness - 5
There are far too few Arabic/Middle-Eastern units for scenario design in AoK and as a result, I personally tend to use an overabundance of camels and Mamlukes in these scenarios. Especially given that a major featurs of the Middle Ages when AoK is set is the Crusades, this is a welcome addition and could see wide use.
Novelty - 4
While the idea for an Arabic horseman is not extremely original, this is the first I've actually seen done and is original and novel in that sense.
Quality - 4
This is a very good unit. Most of the graphics are spot-on, with the exception of the attacking graphics. The unit jumps a little when attacking, but it's not extremely noticable. Aside from this, quite a good job.
Instructions - 5
MPS instal script + Readme is a win in my book. The slps are also included if people want to replace a different unit.
