Will the madness never end? Will you not stop until there's a stylish graphic for every hypothetical unit?
Wishes he could convert Civ2's scenarios to FreeCiv...
But instead, he made his own tileset variants, RoundSquare and Sextant-enHANSed, and refuses to play on anything else. Check them out!

What exactly is a problem?
I'm happy with these new units, because most of them fits well into my advanced ruleset. For example, classic civ infantry have unclear progress path, I would like to see separate defending and attacking infantry tiers, instead mixed up.

Hehe, he is joking ;)

Hans has been supporting long time my graphics effort!

Edit:

@Hans the madness will stop when there is for every trident unit I made an equivalent amplio unit. And Im absolutely sure their hypothetical status is temporal and they will be soon incorporated into practice, specially at longturn since the stuff happens over there. But if you want to speed things up Im still awaiting units from you... ;)
Some units still need refurbishment or total replacement, those are also very welcomed...

There is non. I just did the graphics so far. Although Im pretty sure Im not gonna add much more units Im still thinking of adding another row for infantry since they are spilling over into the cavalry row. A missing medieval marine unit might be the reason for doing that.
Anyhow, Im not planning on doing the matrix. I gladly leave that job to someone else but wanted to warn you that another row is probably coming between infantry and cavalry.
Also, some units might look finished but Im still adding a few pixels every now and then.

Any chance to add grenadiers? Or maybe suggestion, which existing unit could be used instead (fusiliers?). There is lack of stormtroppers predecessor.

Well, that shoudnt take much time. In the next weeks I can crate one.

The guy with the red shirt was earmarked as Marine-III.

Hm, well you could see grenadiers as predecessor I guess. My intention behind the unit was a special trench breaker who gets a bonus when attacking fortified units.

Btw.: Updated units image and unit list
