Sorry for the lack of news of late, but I'm finishing my first year of college so I don't have a lot of free time right now. But here's what I have been working on in the past couple of weeks : new Rohan peasant skins!

Wow, they look good.
Just one thing. They're peasents. Would they really have that nice of clothes?
But it really doesn't matter, they still look awesome ^_^

They are kind of nice. But they don't have any armor on them, so I guess that would imply that they aren't military soldiers :grin:

I was wondering why nobody posted in this update. Perhaps it was because I didn't post it in the mod update, so no one really noticed it. Thanks for the positive comments ^_^

I could argue:

They're women, what are they doing on a battlefield? ^_^

You shouldn't have said that Zimoo :) I have an extremely strong belief that women have the same strength as men, and they deserve to be on the battlefield. Now I know that the whole story behind Eowyn is because she is a woman, and that's why she is my favorite character :grin: So in my Helm's Deep Battle, women are fighting because Rohan is extremely short on soldiers, and they must turn to desperate means in order to counter this. Remember, if Rohan falls and Helm's Deep is destroyed, then the hop of men is all but lost (at least in my version of the battle) :lol:

They are as strong as males, I acknowledge that (elven women defending their homes ^_^ ). But in the books (which of course I follow), it is not mentioned that any women fought. I was actually defending you, so no need to offend me :grin:

The point behind my post was, women didn't fight in the battle (in film or book), yet no-one brings that up. If I had to choose between fancy clothes and women fighters, from a lore standpoint I'd go with fancy clothes (and maybe rename the peasants to compensate...land owners, or something better :lol:).

I do actually like the female peasants though, especially the "Bossy" hordes (modders should know what I mean).

Most of my favourite characters in the books are women (Galadriel :) ).

No need to feel offended Zimoo. I know you love the female characters, especially Galadriel :lol:

I still don't think the clothes are that fancy. I guess I could perhaps make the clothes more dirty and stained?

Speaking of the bossy hordes, I'm actually considering the women voices to appear much more often than they currently are set at. Right now, I believe there is only a 5% chance you will ever hear them, and that's only if their is a female in the horde. I'll probably bump it up to at least 20%, or even higher.

Wow they look really nice! Heh...heh, I'm sorry, only one of my favourite characters is a woman :( (*in no particular order* Saruman, Theoden, Gimli, Eowyn)

The old world will burn in the fires of industry! The forests will fall! A new order will rise...we will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc! We have only to remove those who oppose us...

Great :rolleyes: Will peasants have special attack?


Yes, I'm currently working on their rock throw attack and they will have a special upgrade called drafted. I'll post more details on it once I have them finished.

although i think those skins are fantastic i do agree they are a tad fancy for peasants and having them dirty and stained i think would be more realistic

BUTTT

- whether you would notice a few stains ingame?......

Probably not :rolleyes: Anyways, there are like 100 times better than the ones EA made :D If I do modify the peasant skins anymore, it'll be last on the things to do.

Yeah, it really doesn't matter ;)
Though if you were change them, I would change the ones with that blue color.
For some reason that color screams fancy at me :grin:
