    So Unit cards will now have a background (based on home land?) instead of just the unit?

    I didn't meant the background but the land they sit on, so for sand(units in desert regions) or snow(sweboz rulzzz) footprints can be noticed or rocks will be present in some of these scenes and neat things like this.

    So the grounds now are 3D instead a simple plane like it was in the past or in some cases just a pic was used and the unit was placed on top of it, here's a pic to give a general idea(mesh only the rest is a surprise:P):


    However specific faction backgrounds can be added but we haven't checked how it will look.

    EDIT:
    Imageshack seems to have removed the pic and since I'm too lazy to redo it i'll just post a done one, snow but without the blizzard:


    EDIT2:
    Or not... I'll let it be.

    Oh boy! I think I'm going to be too busy just looking at all the beauty in EBII to actually play the game.

    Awesome!

    As the other guy said it will be hard to play EB with all these details everywhere.

    EB2 is going to be great!

    I see, then that means that this could very well be that Scandinavian Spearmen unit! Gaut spearmen or something!

    Seeing as not all Germanic units will be pictured with snow and in Scandinavia it can get quite, snowy.

    We have good news:

    Hellenistic scout cavalry model finished. It's skinning time. - JMRC
    Just finished the steppe settlements, steppe camps are also done w/ yurtas and nomad wagons and horses and other stuff. -Tux
    And we have freaking awesome news:

    Working on a new preview. Incorporating some jaw-dropping artwork in it, and a pretty fun contest too. -Praetor-

    Fantastic! Judging from the increased frequency of the previews it would seem that things are moving forward quite well.

    Not really... Things are moving slow compared back to EB, we're just people short and especially in the modeling and skinning department.

    And by people short I mean the guys who do the work...

    I'm late as heeeeelll, but for archers, spears are always better. Better defence against cavalry, and I engage my archers in mêlée very, very, very rarely; only in the most desperate situations, so those swords (wee better against infantry) will just be less useful.
