Changed the face of Kingfisher -again- ,and I believe it looks much better now. Fixed a little bit of anatomical problems.

I think it's a huge improvement. But again, I'm no artist.
Anyway, it's nice to see you're still working on this. Do you already have plans for doing the Rhea as well (or possibly other units)?

Crendgrim > Yes, I'm currently trying to design the Rhea, but have problems envisioning their general looks - with injured wings and all that. Hurmm...

lipk > Thank you! Nice to see that there's still some support for this ^^

Bump to find my post...Can't seem to find it anymore D;

Anyway, I am requesting help once again hoping for collaborators who may want to help me with making the avian faction complete!

Specifically someone who's good at scripting or coding (I'm especially dumb in this aspect) and also work hand in hand with me in the design of more avian units - aiming to the completion of the faction.

Would love you to be on board lipk!

Feel free to pop suggestions to what needs to be worked on next, because currently - even I am unsure of what to do next haha.

Well, I think the kingfisher and the hummingbird have basically everything a unit needs (baseframe, attack animations, portraits), so if I were you, I'd start working on a new unit, either a level 2 for the existing ones or a brand new line. Having more different base units is usually of higher priority (if you want the faction to be used in UMC content), but I guess it's a lot harder, too. I don't know, do whatever you find the most rewarding.

The Hummingbird has a full set of animations too? That's awesome! Could you post the pngs so that I can put them in the era?

lipk, alright I will try and get new units out.

The next unit in mind, the Rhea (non-flight grounded skirmisher) - I am still unsure if it should start as a base or as a unit upgrade. Any suggestions?

Vanagandr, alright, give me a moment. The ground to ground attack animation for the hummingbird isn't compiled properly yet, but it is done. However, for the time being, here's the base frame, air to ground bow attack, air idle animations. Movement animations aren't done yet :X

Thanks a lot! I personally would prefer the Rhea as an advancement, I think this way it adds a lot of culture and story to the faction. However it's not easy to say before knowing what other lvl 1 units there might possibly be.

I agree, because the Rhea are 'fallen warriors' with their wings too injured to be able to fly. But their tenacity motivates them enough to take up their weapons and continue fighting with their injuries :)

The next advancement however, is pretty hard to think of due to the race's limitations from wearing heavy armor.

For the 'magic' users or general healers of the faction; I am thinking of potion pitching units, which can change to better healing unit (herbalist maybe) or as an alchemist, throwing fire bombs from the air instead.

Edit: Also, if you want the portraits as well, just tell me :)

I don't like the alchemist idea, see the faction thread for more (too much?) details :)
Have you altered them from the ones posted above? If the portraits are still the same as the ones you posted above, then I can download them directly.
