    Default R2TW forum avatars









    I've done these tonight in about 20 minutes or so. I'll eventually add all the characters to the .org portrait library, but if any of you have a particular Rome 2 portrait you'd like to see added sooner, here is what i need:

    - a screenshot that has the unit in a still animation (Not yawning or turning or something like that). The larger the screenshot, the better.
    - I need the faction from which the unit came
    - I need to know what kind of unit it was (spy, champ, dignitary or general)

    I can also provide R2 themed sigs, PM me for those (if you find/choose assets for me to use from the game or sites and have an idea of what you want that would be great)

    These are: (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth;
    (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline.

    Are Ghoul faces allowed for lulz?

    Don't have the game anymore but I'd appreciate a Gallic Oathsworn dude, and perhaps any Parthian unit or Greek Phalangite.

    (If you can please add a Naginata Warrior monk to be used as an avatar, I can provide screenshots of the encyclopedia one if you want)

    At the moment only staff are allowed custom icons. But the price we pay is too high, trust me. The ritual will leave you scarred for life.

    Those who have actual faces in the campaign map are easier. Not that I can't screenshot an oathsworn and make an image... I'll look into it more in-depth over the weekend.

    I have Shogun II, and ROTS and FOTS. Which of the three? I assume Shogun II.

    Thanks Myth.

    About the units, you could just use campaign portraits if you wanted to. If that's the case any Gaul or Parthian will do.

    (I think units got 3 d portrait renders if you enable them, it pops up with the stats and such)

    About the warrior monk, it's Shogun 2. Really cool unit imo. The one already in is the RoTS one which looks quite different.

    I'm not gonna lie, I like the Rome I avatars waaaay better. Just a cleaner style I think.

    I like hand drawn portraits more than 3D renders or photoshopped pictures. Case in point - the original Heroes 3 portraits and those added with Shadow of Death.

    It also doesn't help that all the Roman Champions look like they took a second trip round the buffet line if you know what I mean. Think you do.

    I like the dude on the left, three rows down. He has that intimidation face going on. He means business alright...
