If so, it better be only for the level 2
Exactly. It is level 2+3 only.

Weakness: Pierce, Fire and blade
The HP seems a bit low, and the damage seems a bit high... right now I have 42 HP, 8-2 melee, 26 gold. That's probably a bit too weak, of course. What about 44 HP, 10-2 melee?

Same as above... how about 62 HP, 15-2 melee?

BTW, the names as they currently stand are River Calf -> River Horse -> Hippopotamus.
I was making the Hippo line as a sorta weaker version of the Wose, since it gets ranged. Wouldn't a level 3 be over doing the already uber-powerful race?

All changes you said I agree with

Well, yes, but the Wose costs 20 gold and this guy costs 26...

Hm - I was reading the Aeneid yesterday, and I found this:

And there was me thinking that you made those names up.

Since all of the official units are being resized, the IE units are starting to look like midgets. ;) So here's a rough draft of a larger Lavinian Legionnaire...

Just a heads-up, I played the era yesterday and there were a bunch of graphical problems: defense anims missing, some recruits not having pics, etc.

I copied the IE from my 1.1.2a folder into my 1.1.5 folder though so it may have been an old version. I'll check that out later when I get the chance.

Looks good, but you just reminded me that the sword on this guy looks wonky compare to the position of the hand, so I did a little edit.

Nice, I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

BTW, the legionare's sword looks bent in your example, is it because of something on the grassland behind it, or did you edit it (there is another lighter pixel in the top left of the sword)

Err... that was just residue from the earlier Legionnaire. It isn't in the actual unit image, and I've fixed it here.

In this image I've done the Praetorian (which I had to do all over again - the old Praetorian had nothing I could use except the helmet), and I've touched up the Decurion.

Unfortunately, we won't be able to use a purple cape, because that would clash with the TC...

Shame, although you managed to make it fast (*is surprised by the speed*).

I work fast when all I'm doing is merging two images. :P (How I do these is, I take the previous unit image, take the revised Legionnaire image, and cut-n-paste stuff from the old image to the revised Legionnaire image. It seems to work fairly well, and it goes rather fast.)

I think you misunderstood. It would be possible to have a purple cape, but in my judgement it would ugly.

signifer and aquilifer done

[edit2]
seige archer line 3/5ths done
