Should he be able to go in, attack, move out?. If so, how much mov should it use to be sure it doesn't get used many times?.
The original idea was that he would move in on one turn and attack normally, then on a subsequent turn could deliver the Parthian Shot and move out of range without attacking again on that turn, but ignoring zones of control. Also, he would only be able to ignore zones of control when moving after delivering the Parthian Shot, not when moving normally. I'm not sure if it is possible to have a unit that uses "skirmisher" only in certain specific situations, but that was part of my original idea.

Using movement_used=5 could do this, but he would only run 3 hexes afterwards at best (after the melle-less unit endures a turn of melee most possibly, since you wouldn't Parthian someone with ranged attack, which normally will have more repetitions than your).

Another option could be for the attack to have some sort of WML special. The moment it is used, it dissapears until the next turn, and movement_used=0, so he doesn't lose moves when doing it.
The latter sounds like a better option to me, and more in the spirit of the unit as I originally envisioned it.

Magauuan, sort of. A blatant rip of the Great Mage.

Is it supposed to have a beard?

I'm basing it off of my experience with debug, where you can give a unit that has attacked more movement and he still can't attack again.

If that's true, we shouldn't need to worry about the exact number of movements removed - we could even make it 1, although that might be unbalanced.
This is true. A unit cannot attack after attacking.

BTW, some reference images for the Mosuli Conscript and Levy would be appreciated. I don't quite get what they're supposed to look like. For the Cataphract too, if you can get them.

Angel Guardian type unit (parts shamelessly ripped from Celestials and the Gryphon).

I don't remember anyone proposing this guy for the Iranian/Assyrian faction, but he looks like he could have stepped straight from the walls of an Assyrian palace. We've got to work him in somehow!

turin's proyect to Default-ize the Imperial Era consist of adding a swimmer and/or flyer to every faction.

An Assyrian angel/guardian inspired unit was the pick for the Airiya. It is in, AFAIK.

I skimmed the last page of this thread, for some reason, and realized we had never answered this question.

Yes, I do believe he should have a beard. In fact, probably all the Airiya and Mosuli except the Angel Guardian should have beards.

It is true that the modern Magi in the picture a few pages back were clean shaven, but that's probably a modern Western influence.

OK.

(FYI, I am still working on these guys, but they've taken a back seat to the Frost Elves, mostly because I want to get the non-human factions done first.)

No problem. I, too, want to see the Frost Elves get done.

I should have never doen that personality test. It instantly reminded me of these guys, and then it sprouted my attemp at cheap frankensteining in Paint.

I decided Persian/Airiya wouldn't be much into proper headgear (carving show guys without helmets), but good if i just knew how to do pixel braids, or pixels at all.

Ignore me, it is not like i haven't done similar things in other threads, though i just dropped drawings. At least it represents the progression i had in my mind. Assyrian/Mosuli however, would be into cuirasses, scale mail, high helmets and whatnot.
