problem is, the shields are a very smal part of the skin to the TG... so Cel would have to make a new model, and a separate skin, to make the shield look good...

So it's impossible to change the shield without changing all skin? Strange :p

(I think :p) What Lauri is saying is that the shield takes up such a small amount of the skin to make it look good Celeglin would have to increase the size of the skin. But just plain increasing the size of the skin would make the rest of the skin look terrible, therefore he would have to reskin the entire TG as well.
--or--
Celeglin would need to remap the TG model to have the shield area a bit larger on the skin, and therefore reskin it to match his new mapping.

Well, what do you think about it, Cel? Which theory is right?

LoG and Lauri both have it right. And you all know me: I wouldn't just stop at reskinning the shield...

He already said there are high res versions of some units, and he might put them in.
So stop asking :)

About time ;)

Peasants do have new shields, but that's just a side effect of the new Rohirrim shields, as they use the same shield texture. The Rohan shield is it's own texture, separate from the Peasant skins and the Rohirrim skins. The Tower Guard shield, on the other hand, is on the Tower Guard skin.

No it isn't. Rohan shields are used for Rohirrim and Peasants, so it makes sense that the shield is a separate texture (it's the same for the Gondor Soldier/Knight shields). Tower Guard shields - like Boromir's - are only used by Tower Guard, so they use the same texture file as the Tower Guard.

People were being nasty in the channel, so I muted it. It's back to normal now.
