well to be fair, dwarf fighter too wields two different weapons (axe/hammer) but it is not clrear by the animatiin where the hammer suddenly comes from.
So i think i will take just as much liberties when animating.

concept wise, i would say i will use both version (3) and (5). depensing on which of the two blades was uses in the last attack/defense, thats going to be drawn and the orher will be holsteres

shield very much WIP, but now you can read the second blade.
and because of the shield is a bit smaller, you can see that the holster on the back looks like the holster on front
so its no longer to be confused with quiver, right?

Almost his whole chainmail is painted in green, but one small part under the head is gray. What is that part?

Wow, that is the beard. But I meant that part that is left from the beard. (Beard is black and dark brown, but this part is gray)

I am trying to finally finish this project so I had a big session where I overworked all the the weapons and shields to be cohesive. New designs and new colouring. Here is the weapon overhaul. Thoughts?

(By the way, this probably isn't the correct thread for it, but isn't the correct spelling "Cataphract"?)

@CelMin It's spelled that way ("Cataphract") in the actual addon.

It's really just me. Not that careful when it comes to orthographic

Small Update: Lordlewis improved the arms and stance of the Dune captain. Furthermore he also fixed that bow that gave me a headache. With that occasion I also removed that floating pixel on the Swiftrider but not gonna post that one.

I'm taking a stab at some of these, before they have any animation frames. I don't have a good feel for them, but from looking at the unit files, I don't think my small changes ruin anything. The top are the current sprites, the bottom are revisions.

Hi doofus-01! Looking great! I particularly like what you have done with the leadership unit. It looks really good now and the out raised fist is great!

Also I like the removal of the shield on the herbalist upgrades, they seem more appropriate for such units. I do wonder, though, if the lvl 3 Herbalist now looks too bulky?

Also I really like the changes to the Burner the new design looks much better shaded and the hair has been fixed. It also seems to have the correct amount of TC now!

However, I think the Strider's new posture might be a bit too dynamic for a standing pose?

Also I have a feeling that the lvl 3 Harrier:

Is now wearing too much armour, considering it is a skirmisher.

Overall, undoubtedly awesome work!
