Very cool, Graylord. I see this project has and will continue to go a lot further than your previous one.
I played your latest build (the one that's on your site at least) and it's cool. Enjoyability is limited due to the the camera, mostly. It makes movement and aiming awkward. I did have fun with it though.
Personally I went with sort of a Roman tactic, heavily armoured on one side to take the blows so that I can turn the lighter, but more heavily armed, side into a counter attack. Worked well.
