Point taken, How's it looking now?

Yea I won't change the design from vanilla unless it's completely appropriate i.e. giving the peasants a belt or the Haradrim chest armor.

What I would do:

  • Create harder lines between armor plates. Technically, I'd select each plate, copy-paste it, then have it 'drop shadow' on the one below it. You're looking for definition, so you need hard, sharp lines. 
  • Brighter metal. In fact, I'd find a good photograph of a metal surface, and use that to create each plate. 
  • Uniform lighting. Brighter spots on the tops of the shoulder armor, a ridge of bright lighting across the horse's neck and at the spot the horse's armor plates 'bulge' the most, ie. the front of its throat.

I know this is a texture patch, but I think you could stand to be a little less slavish to the source material in terms of coloration and exact design. Increase the image size, add a pattern to the cloth and its lining (think Citadel Guard cloaks), add an actual Gondorian chest plate, etc.

Well I have a metal texture on overlay already so I'll use that, and it's a 512x512 :p. And this is going to be like the other patches so I'll be keeping to the EA design.

Sure, remember though, even in the BFME1 patch we changed a bunch of designs when the original one was just too dumb. ;)

I am also sure there is room to keep the same shape but include more detail too. The Gondor Soldiers have finer detail on their armour than what I see here and the Knights of Dol Amroth should be more elaborate than the soldiers.

One note to add in ROR's defence, the mapping for the ROTWK added units is simply terrible so is the original texture. I admire his courage to work with that. :p

This is but a taste of the terror that EA has unleashed...

So as some of you guys might know, I'm helping in the BFME2 visual overhaul for Valheru's patch.
Been doing some work on the Half Troll Marauders:

I don't like the highlights on the back portion of the chest piece. The front looks quite good, but the back looks rushed in my opinion.
