Re: New unit: rifleman

Based on Daniel's suggestion, I started from Alexander82's image of the Tanegashima Ashigaru that was implemented.
I still like the name musketeer, even if he is using an arquebus as a weapon.
Here is my revised image.

Re: New unit: rifleman

After thinking about it, yes we should have a Gunpowder Tech, probably 6 turns like Ballistics. The inaccuracy based on the speed of the target, say 10% x the speed. Targets with a speed of 2 would be 20% chance of a miss, and so on. That would balance out the added bonuses for shooting at cavalry. ...

Re: New unit: rifleman

I think the inaccuracy should be based on the speed of the target, similar to the catapult.

Re: Templar to crusader

I like the ones with the white cross on the shield. I think it stands out much better especially with the red background. The surcoats all look good. If a red cross on white was traditional, then I'd use that.

Re: New unit: rifleman

The Musketeer was used historically to attack War Elephants in India. I think it would be nice to have a ranged infantry unit to counter attack this powerful unit and other cavalry units. I agree there should be a relatively high degree of inaccuracy to their shots. Suggested stats: Cost 4, Hp 16, A...

Re: New unit: rifleman

After reading about Musketeers in Wikipedia, I think they would be an appropriate unit for the Medieval era. The Tanegashima Ashigaru is a Japanese musketeer. According to Wikipedia, "The tanegashima seems to have been based on snap matchlocks that were produced in Portuguese India, at the armory of...
