Hello, just wanted to post that i have modeled carhegian war elephant, it was meant for game i was making, but incase if you would be able to implement it in game i would be willing to let you use it for this mod. Nothing like it has been done in Mand B yet, but from technical perspective, it would certainly need some coder to implement some attack functions.

Hey, That elefant looks amazing!. I ques it will be a bit of work to get it working functional in-game. But if you are willing to donate this awesome elefant to us. Then we are you more then gratefull.

Atleast thanks for letting us know!

Thanks, as i said i would be more than willing to donate it as long as you can prove me that you have some working prototype of elelphant ready, which means some prototype model and some attacking & ridding functionalities working in game.

One more suggestion maybe for the mod, right now it is looking excellent, armors are just perfect its nice to see three factions too but i think that adding one more faction like britain would be nice addition, it would balance into 4 factions, and besides britain is quite different in their equipment. Or maybe germans instead of britans, which are quite unique too. I would join your modding team as modeler but i am very packed with time and all i can really do is give more suggestions:grin:

I'm very sorry to tell you. But we don't have any model/texture and/or a working Elephant.

In-case of the factions, were already busy with 4th and perhaps a 5th faction! So don't worry about that. :wink:

Got some stuff for you. Keep in mind Carthaginian armies consisted largely of various mercenaries and auxiliaries from around the western Mediterranean. From the Liby-Phoenician heavy infantry, to the expert Numidian horsemen, fearsome Iberian and Celtic mercenaries, and the renowned Balearic slingers, Carthage has a very interesting and diverse roster! :grin:

Various Mercenaries

Foreground: Libyan spearman (standing), Iberian mercenary (left), Celtiberian mercenary (right);
Background: Numidian horseman (left), mercenary Gallic cavalry (right)








I'm sure you all know what the Celtic mercenaries look like (they're basically just Gauls :razz:). I don't know if it is worth doing Celtiberians as well, sticking with the Iberians and Gallic Celts should be sufficient (otherwise there will be too many units).

yes we probably split celtiberins in 2 parts (Celtic+ Iberians)

about cartage well the idea is mainly to get nude unique as possible factions without mercenaries on it
and to do a mercenary ability to join in battle as a different faction troops

No. Books are. Rome total war has to be one of the most historically inaccurate games out there.

Got some more Iberians:




These ones are a little later (2nd century BC, rather than 3rd)
