This is a simple re-modeling and skinning of the Spartan Hoplites. They now sport a bronze muscled cuirass, bracers, and greaves. Their shield is emblazoned with a Lakedaimon lamda, and a red cloak rounds out their attire.
This mod includes only new model, skin, and unit card files. It does not change any of the game's original text files for unit stats, recruitment, or description.
I created these Spartans for Amazon: Total War, and decided to release them as a standalone mod as well. To learn more about ATW visit its forums here at RTWH: http://rtw.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=t&fn=33
To get a look at these new fellas load these urls into your browser:
This spartan's skin looks much better than the original vanilla. This is not only for the new and endearing esthetics but also for the greatest uniform's storically accuracy. In fact now we can see the muscle armour, the full helmet with equine crest and the characteristic spartan symbol of "Lambda" on the hoplon.
Very good job, congratulations SubRosa, Look at your spartans on the battlefield is
