Actually, I do have one complaint: the tattered rags on the Drake zombie seem utterly huge, as in wide. Shouldn't the unit's right knee cover that portion of the rag? The rag would be between his 2 legs, wouldn't it?

Look at it like a skirt. It makes sense then.

The new drakes have greek-like skirts, at least on the few Neo posted over in the "help needed with defining TC graphics" thread.

Zombie on a zombie horse. Nothing too difficult.
Though it bugs me how Wesnothian horseys and horsey-men are smaller than average folk, for otherwise they wouldn't fit the hex... I hope this zombie does.

He fits in there no problem, as far as I can tell from a cursory glance.


The good news is that said wesnothian horse units are only slightly smaller than "they should be", and said discrepancy is actually much better than it used to be. When I first joined the project, all of the horse units were like little midgets compared to ground units.

These are great! I liked the pallid-blue skin colour from before, but as you said, it didn't look good. Ah well.
In my oppinion zombies are like corpses, with magical 'puppet strings' attaching them to the Necromancer, and so they kinda crawl along the ground and walk hunched over and stuff, but i don't know how this fits with Wesnothian zombies... After all, they don't all die when the necromancer does, and if it's a disease that changes the whole thing...

He sits very high on the horse. This makes him quite large for a level 0 unit.

Aye, easy fix.
His horse is also bigger than a normal level 1 horse. Horse units should be bigger, I say!

Triple post... :shock: *Prepares for dark figures closing in*
Fishie zombie. I thought to make it all grounded and it would rise up quickly in attack. That would be quite fish-like IMO. :)

I am, however, very insure about it. There wasn't much room for TC and the sprite(or what it was originally) is rather old... Does ye like it anyways? :?

Multi-posts are a non-issue if each one adds very-significant content, which these do.

This is completely OT but all those horse units have really short legs, even in comparison to their body. Couldn't their legs hang below the horses stomach a bit?

Is that fish zombie leaking blood? That would be a no-no

I think it's a teamcolor ribbon, by the look of it. But yeah, it might be a bit dodgy-looking if it's red.
