In a journey wondering around the old data folders of my PC, I meet this member of the assassin brotherhood. He's been fighting the Templars before getting lost in the messy hard drive of Achesun's. So I show him the way to Aokh, as I know some designers here might have a job for him.
This Assassin unit is based on the design of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. If you enjoy that game, you'll probably found this unit useful!
A "human male body" model from Mount & Blade by TaleWorlds Entertaiment was used as a base of the 3D character model used to render the sprites.
Like always, if you want to publicly publish this unit in your projects, please don't forget proper credits.
amazing it has all the armour and weapons of the assassin but a bit of player colors would be needed

This is amazing. I've been looking for a unit like this for years! Shame it hasn't got any player colour as Mahazona said.

Wait a minute...I did add player color on this unit. The blue part on his waist belt is supposed to be player color. I've tested the slps on MPS and the player color does work! Does it not work in the game?

This Assassin unit by Achesun is based on Altaïr from the Assassin's Creed video games.
I have been looking for an assassin unit for a very long time and I think this unit is perfect to fit the role of an assassin or spy in your scenarios. The hood makes the unit seem mysterious, as if he is trying to hide his identity and keep out of sight, just as an assassin or spy would. There have been many people requesting spy units in game, and many scenarios which feature a main character as a spy or assassin which this unit would perfectly fill those roles.
However, I do find a few things that effect the usefulness of this unit. The first is the very limited player colour which is only a thing strip along the belt and very difficult to see most of the time. I would suggest that a little more player colour would make the unit a little easier to use in game. The second is the unit's attack position. The unit attacks with a sword, and whilst that there is no flaw with the animation or quality, in my opinion an assassin would want to be sly and would use a dagger or knife rater than a sword.
The quality of the unit is flawless. The animations run smoothly and the unit looks exactly like what it is designed to be. The unit blends in perfectly with the other units in the game and comes with all the relevant slps. The unit also comes with its own custom icon. I can find no flaws with this unit at all.
A great unit that will be used alot.
