Drummer name change and redesign

Post by Endru1241 » Fri Sep 20, 2019 11:30 pm

Drummers are only Roman right now. Name and visuals are misguiding.
My proposition is Aeneator - it was a name of soldier in charge of various signalling, by the use of musical instruments (sort of ensign predecessor). As there is no historical evidence of Roman military use of drum, Buccina (long spiral horn) would work great.

Here is the image:

Anybody interested in designing an image?

off topic we should also have an aquilifer its like a banner bearer of the roman army

Also off-topic

About That word buccina

Here in the Philippines we have a word "busina" which means horn :lol:

We have the stats - Drummer right now affects only Roman units. I only wanted to make it better fit with image and name (and to be clear about being Roman unit).

I need to abandon this image for other priorities, but it's basically an unarmed legionare missing an arm.
