I found out where those sprites came from, it was called Feniks Era on 1.12.6 but it doesnt to be on the server anymore.
And it also appears that the previous line was only a bit edited. Shield/Sword added, recolored. armor placed thats kinda stuff.

Here is the 2nd advancement:

Centaur Fighter (lv1), Centaur Spear Fighter (lv2), Centaur Captian (lv3)

Also, for smoother unit line progression, I'd suggest either giving the lvl1 a wooden buckler
the line progression for the 2nd advancement doesn't seem bad, but yes on first line it kinda does, i will add a less fancy shield. part of my to-do list now

thanks ForestDragon for continuous feedback

nice! :) small suggestion, though: I think it would be nice if the line had spartan-like helmets (not covering the face up) to distinguish from the other advancement branch.

I think the lvl3 looks a bit too similar to the lvl2. otherwise looks pretty nice.

yes this is defiantly one of the smallest centaur sprites in the era. i will fix that upon release.

I think you might have misunderstood what I said. what I meant to say that it would be a good idea to make the lvl3 look fancier, so she's better distinguishable from the lvl2 variant.

looks nice. however, it would be good if the lvl3 had a hood (to differentiate better between lvl2 and lvl3), and lvl2 looked a bit fancier (to differ).

So are all of these units going to be scouts and have high amounts of MP? I think that they may get over powered if all of them have over 7 MP...

To me I would suggest that the based MP would be about 6. reason non-scout units have to be rested for battle and body plan +armor/weapons makes them front end heavy. Thus non-scout units having to be slower so they don't kill themselves by tripping.

Balancing is thehardest part of faction design, especially if you do uncenventional factions like full skeletons or full centaur factions. I was paying attention to that and I was lucky to have IPS consulting me on balancing. For instance my centaur mostly use only pierce atacks, which happen to be there vulnability too. Without arcane they would f*** against skels.
Same for Skels, a faction with is completly -50% arcane/-20% fire is hard to balance, but I found solutions to those problem... your welcome to try them when they are released in couple of weeks.

I think there is no centaur under 6 mp but yeah, key point of centaurs are their mobility, they can dominate maps really fast, but are not taking damage that well. at least they are skilled fighters.

nonetheless, here is a special centaur:

Centaur Pegasus (lv1), Centaur Sentinel (lv2), Centaur Guardian (lv3)
