Which unit do you think looks the most awesome in Rome Total War? I'm not asking what unit is most powerfull but asking which unit looks the best. All the units in Rome Total War look good. With their 3-D stuff and their high texture, uniforms, armor and weapons. They all look really good. However, which unit do you think looks the best?

In my eyes, I think the Sacred Band Infantry of Carthrage looks the best so far.

I agree, Sacred Band Infantry, then Armored Elephants.
Those cartheginians really like to dress up (which was true historically).

Historically, the Companions and the spartans and Theban Sacred band Were also a site to behold, unfortunately, the spartans don't look as good in this game as I have seen in some ancient pictures and statues.

The new 'official' Peloponessian texture of the Sparatan Hoplites. I also love the look of Cataphract Elephants and Cataphract Camels. Egyptian Generals in their chariots also look fantastic.

there are a few i quite like: armoured hoplite, the new spartan hoplite texture, woad warriors, sacred band infantry and the macedonian generals are great, although not the only ones.

but all in all i'm quite dissapointed they could look a lot cooler, the regular phalanx which most factions seems to have is crap in my oppinion. i don't like it at all.

now these are great models/textures, i don't know why they were never added to the game.

I dunno, although weaker than some you guys have been saying, I kinda like the look of a really huge group of Roman spearmen (I forget their exact names, they have big spears and tower sheilds) walking in formation. If they werent so easy to take down by themselves, I'd say they were intimidating. I mean all it really takes is a bunch of cavalry... or some elephants... Or just attack.

Sometimes I play a recording of the Imperial March when they are around...

I just think they look cool...

"Piece of cake, Jackitysam. Advance the cohorts! Hup!"
And then, the entire army dies beneath a withering hail of the pointiest arrows the world had ever seen."

Tons of legionnaires with checker board formation are pretty intimidating sight.

I dunno, but I've always been a sucker for Roman military uniforms. Any Roman legion unit that has a crest/plume on it's helm. Urban Cohorts look great, and even better in the R:TR Mod, as the fation colours have been toned down, so you don't have armies of bright red/green/blue. You actually have armies that are slightly darker red/green/blue. Plus, SPQR is now black, with certain units having striped plumage. Looks sweet indeed.

Apart from that, I love the look of shining, pure white carthaginian Poeni/Libyans. Sacred band come close, but the white is offset by the gold shield

And ofcourse, the new Spartan texture is quite impressive.

Oh, and one more thing that hasn't been mentioned is Arab Cavalry (merc units) and Arab Infantry (R:TR). I love the green clothing with the black veils and curved scimitar-style swords, and the bamboo-looking shields.

Spartan Hoplite official model mod from CA,
Sacred Band Infantry.

Scutum phalanx is pretty, but the helmets seem revolting to me... The Poeni I mean....

I saw a poeni infantry with long shield cavalry shield (lol) in Decisive battles: Cannae (i think). It looked quite nice...
