well, no problem :)

EDIT: maybe you can make it, so that the ogres stole this cannon from somewhere, or something

btw, it's nice to see you working on something again :)

EDIT2: also, will you post Kimmira's portraits, and that "someone's" attack icon too?

I have told Mechanical that I will use pretty much anything that he creates in the completed faction, but I will likely only be using the units that I sent to him on the unit list for the campaign. We can release the Rockland Ogres as a separate faction as well, and I see no reason not to do so, (meaning that we can include the gun ogres and any other of Mechanical's creations in the separate faction).

I just sent Kimirra the info for Elithiel's new portrait and I'll have some concept art from her probably in about a week. I will post that but I am not posting any of the completed portraits (ultimately there will be about ten of them) until after the campaign is released. I will also likely have her create five or six story panels. This will all take time. I'm not her only client.

Shield is doing the attack icons. I have only requested one from him so far because I do not yet know exactly what will be needed there. The ogre faction will almost certainly need several, and there are also three new characters in the World Seed who will need a few. Elithiel will be getting two new attacks and I might need icons for those too. I am still creating the maps for the campaign so I haven't gotten into creating the scenario or unit configs yet.

I have sent Addan-Shem a somewhat extensive list of sprites, frankens, items, and scenery that will be needed about a week ago. He has not sent anything over yet, but I'm sure he's working on it.

The World Seed will have about 20 - 25 scenarios, which is roughly twice the number in The Amaranthine Stone. As well, there will be a host of new enemies and allies. Most of these will be pulled from existing factions and adapted as needed. Some, like the Rockland Ogres, will need to be created from the ground up. I'm working on the scenario maps currently and I plan to do all the programming myself, so I expect this entire process to take several months at the least.

btw, i think you could start making the code of the campaign, with placeholders instead of unit images

My method is usually maps, unit files (including any animations), terrains, and then scenarios, in that order. I'm wrapping up maps now. By the time I start coding the scenarios, I will not likely need to use any placeholders except in the area of portraits, hopefully. The Rockland Ogre scenario occurs fairly early on, so we'll see. There are still 20 units that need sprites there.

I really like the big ogres. I do have issues with broken TC. With the giant gun wagon I would go for regular SE facing. There might be a point in making NE facing too. But not necessarily. I am really a big fan of oversize units. With the gun wagon I would however go a bit smaller due to wesomtric properties.

I made a quick distortion to get more wesometric. This is purely to explain what I mean by wesometric. It is not meant to be better or anything. I will put it in a spoiler. So please only look at it, if you are able to cope with it.

I've started work on this one attack icon.
Currently I'm trying to pin down approximately how it's gonna look before I move on to detail and coloring.

workin' on it
Based on the sprite, it would appear that the blades are fairly wide-- though that could just be for visibility's sake considering the scale of Wesnoth's sprites.
Nowhere near the finished product yet, but figuring out the shapes of the blade, hilt, and handle. The 3rd one looks a little straighter than I intended, but that's probably because of the angle I drew it at.

FaeLord, which of these four do you think is the closest to what you have in mind? Going from there, I can tweak it further.

I'm not FaeLord, but I think the best could be a fifth one with the third one's blade and the fourth one's hilt :)

Hi Shield:

I have sent you a visual reference image that should make it clear what Nara's knives look like. The sprite is not the best reference for that because it's just too small to represent the knives in any detail.
