Once great heroes across the plains....

Post by Neoriceisgood »

I made a new unit branch for the undead faction, the dead riders; of wich level 1 is more like a fast warrior, and it splits into a stronger riding warrior comparable to revenant; or a dark rider that becomes weaker against pierce; but gains the ever so feared baneblade.

Looks Good

Looks good, in my opinion. Maybe they could be made to replace the Chocobone? (edit: I understand what the Chocobone pays homage to, it just looks like, 'My God! That poor horse is missing his Arse!')

The riders seems to be cut-and-paste from skeleton/revenant/wrath. But I like the idea of undead cavalry.

Oh right wraith; you aughta check out the wraith graphics before jumping to a conclusion; and the revenant skeleton ones are simply ment to be mounted versions of those (with perhaps attack notched down a bit) wich therefore have their heads,

and thus, the undead had one more potantial scouting unit :)

I love the graphics though, and an undead rider is sooo cliché thatj wesnoth HAS to have one :)

While one of the graphics looks vaguely like a wraith, I think if you look at the wraith graphics closely and compare, you'll see that they are very different.

The only problem that I see is that the level 3 wraith-like rider looks nasier than a Specter.

That would be VERY powerful. Drain, combined with an ability which reduces the damage the enemies deal. Make sure it takes LOTS of experience to reach it.

nicely

Post by AT »

This should round out the Undead nicely. Its good to see the races getting almost done. So far Humans, elves, and maybe almost undead seem 1.0 quality. Now just 3 to go 8)

Nice images, seems that you used the hooded head I did/stole for the 3rd level archer :-) or at least a very smilar one.

I think, to make these not just another scouting unit, they shouldnt be as fast as horsemen or elven scouts.

I think these would add a very interesting element though... Lots of weaknesses but a good addition to the ground forces.
