What? He's got a brown tail across the front of his body?

That's a diagonal belt, and I don't see how you can mistake that for an arm realy..
What unit should I redo next?

No, I see the belt. The other arm is right under it.

Umm.... Drakes are bad enough. A Drake Pillager is just plain rediculous and would never be included in the game.

I was confused for a bit becuase in your recent post of drake slasher pics, you had a drake clasher in the lower left corner.

I like the slasher better than the clasher, especially the level 3 slasher, who looks a bit avian. (the helmet almost looks like a beak)

My main problem with the drakes is that they are rather busy cluttered images with the same color scheme used over and over. I rather prefer the images you posted at the top of this thread, which had very different colors from each other. I was a bit confused becuase the clasher looked a bit like the slasher, similar weapon and body colors. I prefer units that are distinct and easy to recognize at a glance.

hm...thinking about how to fix this problem without taking away the unit design;
the problem is that I don't want to change three colors; skin color, the gold armor and the green weapons; and what's left to change after that?

The graphics are nice but to cluttery and with too much details that leads to confusion. I think you should simplify somewhat by taking away the belts, shading more the tails, rounding up the armors...

Failing that, drastically change the size and location of various parts.

(sigh) This is probably going to mess up the scenarios that I use drakes in in the Wesvoid campaign. But I suppose it's still a good thing.
Play a Silver Mage in the Wesvoid campaign.

Well, just PM me what problems it might cause and I'll try to keep the damage low.
