Mauritania





Having been allies of Rome in the last war that opposed the Republic against Numidia, the mauritanians profited from many previous numidian lands given to them by the senate as a reward for their support.

The Mauritanian kingdom is located in the western part of Afrinca and has as neighbours their arch-enemies, the Numidians. They have always been enemies, but ever since the crucial help the Mauritanians gave to Rome in the last war of the numidians against the Senate, they have sworn revenge against each other and war is inevitable.
Although from punnic descendance the royal house of Mauritania relies on the berber tribes of the desert to carry their army duties.

Very nice. Keep up the good work! One small observation: the Lancer has two lines extending from the shield.

That's because it uses the same armour, Vampiric Canniba. I can assure they are a bit more effective <:

Indeed, Hussarknight. Must be a problem with the alpha channel. I have to check it out.

Not hard. They get pwned by 2 units of militia, or 1 and 1 peasant unit as well.

That is true. I may change the armour to make them look a bit more tough, though that will be proven in the battlefield.

Very nice preview, neo_deus. I think the African Legionaries could do with a bit of toughening up in terms of armour.

This preview reminded me of something. You could use the elite infantry unit I made for the Berbers in BI:

Nice one, Andalus! And thank you, but I'm already using that model for a different unit that you will see when I do the preview for Parthia and Armenia.

I'll give the African Legionary a scale mail armour.

How about giving them the armour I posted? I think it would look quite good on them. I can email it to you if you like.

Now that would be good, Andalus. I don't know if I'll use it on the legionary but I think it would fit very well on another unit I was making yesterday.

No, I think he means Libertarian, which basically means anarchist, which sounds like Antichrist which means...
