Originally a graphic by Todler (Yan), the New Eastern Swordsman has been ported by Tomcelmic from AoF/AoAK for potential usage in CD version mods. AoE2 is notorious for its lack of proper unit and building graphics for regions outside of Europe, so unit graphics such as these are always prized by scenario designers and modders. The graphic was 3d-modeled from scratch, making it completely unique, albeit slightly inspired by the previous incarnation of the unit, which was Dave3377's Eastern Swordsman.
The graphical quality of this unit is quite high and, in my opinion, fits quite well with the other units in the game. Tomcelmic has provided excellent instructions on his filepage for how to go about implementing the graphics into the game.
An excellent graphic helping fill a void in terms of AoE2 units by region, this unit is definitely worth a look!
