A unit I made for a friends mod.Can be used in any Middle eastern scenario or as an upgrade to the light cavalry line.
How to use
You need to download turtle pack and open the graphics.drs using the drs editor there you can look through the slp files and Light Cavalry/cataphract.right click on the cataphract stnading slp and replace it with the GC standing graphic slp.For the rest follow the same method.
Special thanks to
DanielP for converting to slp and fixing the anchors.
Kallehagen for the Icon

Unit looks good to me, and I've not noticed any anchor problems yet either. Solid work. :)
Can you add an icon, though?

Daniel helped me with the bmp to slp conversion and the anchor fix :) I dont have a icon made and kinda lazy to do it also.Bala or Daniel might have icons made as they will use this in their mods.

"Guard Cavalry" is a modpack containing graphics for a unit that looks like a hybrid between the cataphract and the light cavalry. It is basically the armored cataphract riding a light unarmored horse. Though it only uses existing AOK graphics put together through the "copy-paste" method, it has the potential to be very useful in certain custom scenarios, and it just looks very cool overall. You can't go wrong with a combination between two nice-looking units.
The instructions are pretty straightforward nowadays, when everyone uses Turtle Pack for modding. The unit itself is of very good quality, it is hard to tell the difference between it and the original AOK units, in terms of quality. The anchor points are flawless too, so you will have no problem integrating it in your scenarios.
This is a flawlessly copy-pasted unit that you can use for scenarios which require a more original look for one or several cavalry units, without altering the original graphics too much. Definitely a recommended download for scenario designers that use modding.
