The "dress"-like clothing one is imitating a 16th century Landsknecht hired by the French king in the illustration below:
All the Standing, Running/Walking and Attacking animations are in 8 directions! So, in order to ensure the animation shows up correctly in the game, please remember to set the 'Mirroring mode' value of these 3 SLP into 0 in your mod's .dat file. The Dying and Dead Body animation would remain in 5 direction though.
New unit icons are also included in the RAR file.
Feel free to use it in your mods, but don't forget to give Kinboat and me credits!
Hey Ivenend, thank you for the good submission of your Landsknecht unit. I have removed your other submission of the some unit as we don't allow duplicate submissions at the Blacksmith. Please use the 'update' button next time, which you can find located in the blue bar just above your file description. Many thanks.

Thanks! I would keep this rule in mind!

The unit looks very historically accurate and the colors look fantastic.
However the attack animation looks weak. Perhaps a horizontal slash might be better?

Thanks for reviews. It has been two years after I uploaded this unit. After read the comment I think there are something I should explain.
First of all, this is not an unit graphic "converted" or "transfered" from Civ3. Kinboat made a 3D unit model of landsknecht in Poser, and he rendered it into Civ3 2D graphic format(.flc). An user(Churchill) in AOK heaven has coverted the Civ3 .flc files into AoE2 .slp format. But that is not what I did.
I did't use Kinboat's .flc files, instead, I used the 3D Poser model made by Kinboat directly and render it into AoE2 slp format. That's why I can add more variations and make the size and colour of the unit is fit in AoE2 style.
Unfortunately, although Kinboat kindly provided his Landsknecht Poser 3D model to public, he did not provide his model animations, that's why I can not reproduce the stabbing animation in Kinboat's Civ3 .flc Landsknecht graphic.
About the unit graphic has 8 directions rather than 5, I did that deliberately because I think that would give the unit a higher graphical quality. Honestly speaking, I'm suprised that some people consider it as a flaw.
BTW, there is a defect that the unit's legs are bending in a weird angle. I already fix that and may upload a new version in the future.

Do you plan to make more units or is this a one and only unit.
