elladan.jpg elrohir.jpg For Elladan and Elrohir I think one of them should be an archer. These pics are from the movies, I hope they give you some inspiration: (Elladan with the bow, Elrohir with the sword)

P.S. I like the idea of them becoming a combo unit.

those are from the movies? never seen that before. and yes i think one should be an archer since they only have 2. i know they have more than others but you would think the elves would have more archers.

They're not officially from the movies; they're just extras that weren't able to make it into the films. I got them from this site here: www.tuckborough.net

Personally I've found that peasant anims are good for 1-handed spearmen units, although you may have to be selective in picking which anims they can use.

While I'll probably be using those faces to some extent, this isn't the concept I want to use for their armour/clothing (I actually used their armour concept for Legolas's breasplate). I'm also leaning towards making them both sword-only.

those are from the movies? never seen that before.

They were images made by Weta for the Trading Card Game.

A) Omg, peasant anims for Elves? Ewwwww!
B) I want two handed anims.
Thanks anyway :lol: .

Peasants would be more suited to Elves than Uruks would IMO, but I didn't know you wanted two-handed ones ^_^

*Thinks*

I can't think of any two-handed one that would be suitable for Elves. How about Gimli :lol:

The problem is there's hardly any spear units, and hardly any units that use weapons 2-handed. When you want a 2-handed spear-wielding unit it's even hadrer to find good anims, I think you may have to make your own for that :(

Actually, Gimli's anims might not be that bad, if it's binded (bound?) correctly. And knowing Celeglin, binding won't be a problem. And if Gimli's anims really aren't good, the only other two-handed one I can think of is Aragorn. If you use either one, they'll be slashing with their spears, rather than stabbing. But if the spears are made like Gil-galad's and the Haven Spearmen's, it should look OK.

well, I would like one to have one sword, and the other one to have two, so you can easily see the difference ^_^ besides you make a red\blue or pink\black whatever clothing difference :lol:

I'd like them both to look identical and wield the exact same weapons, but that's just me :lol:

I say make them similar, but not identical. Give both weapon toggle, but give one high damage, slow rate of fire, and the other high rate of fire, but low damage. Of course, they should have slightly different powers as well.

Right now, Gimli is at the top of the list for animations. However, though I can easily fix the scale issue, Gimli's skeleton is rather squat... I should be able to modify this, but I'm not sure. We'll see.

well, I would like one to have one sword, and the other one to have two, so you can easily see the difference

That would be what RA's done with the twins... That and I only want Cirdan to be wielding two swords in my mod. Ideally, I'd like them to be able to toggle between on-foot and mounted when by themselves, and be forced to stay on foot when together in a "battalion". I've had bad luck trying to get things like this to work, so don't count on it.

Hey Cel
what about putting the Dunedain as a new unit to the Elves of Eriador?
It would actually fit, because Elrond is kind of a father for Aragorn II.
i would find that very interesting
like a very weak elven bow unit

Nope, the Dunedain will be a summon for the Eriador Elves and possibly for Gondor.
