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.

There's so many. In order:

Cataphract Elephants, Scythed Chariots, the new Spartan Hoplites(a bit too orange though, but they look like badasses, wearing no shirts and still being elite), Night Raiders, Companion Cavalry, and Bull Warriors.

The Arcani (sp?) are the most impressive looking IMO, not entirely sure why they just do.

i think the arcani should have been an assasin/spy team. instead of using single agents that are easily found and killed, we have whole teams that can casue havoc.

Yea, it would make much more sense than Roman battlefield ninjas.

I give another vote for Companion Cavalry (everything about those men are just cool, the feathered helmets are my favourite!). I also think the post-marius Greek generals guards (dont' they get a new model, seems to... or is it just in custom battles).

Also, the models for Eastern Generals are awesome (the actual general, not the gaurds).

Well, namely Praetorian/Urban Cohorts, but Triarii also look nice.

Omg totally agreed

And come on, there's nothing wrong with roman battlfield ninjas! It adds a nice...quirk to the game
