This picture was posted on the facebook page, I downloaded it and rehosted it, because I don't know how to link to FB posts

The UI looks very good, a lot more minimalistic. I love those unit cards, fits in very well with the classical era aesthetic.

I saw it too and thought of posting it. But here's what CA said regarding it.
Wouldn’t it be great if we released the full Battle of Teutoburg walkthrough? Watch this space in the next couple of days. It’s happening.
Be interesting to see the full walkthrough. I await it happily.

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.

Looks like they're using more double digits for unit stats. 50 attack and 60 armor. I'm used to looking at numbers no bigger than 24; I wonder what the significance of that is?

Hubba Hubba. Looks amazing! And those graphics!!!

Hm... The units with the plumes on the UI- they're not Praetorians, are they?

In the Teutoburg walkthrough it shows they are called "Eagle Cohort" - so they're the First Cohort, basically.

I liked what they did with the art-style for Shogun 2's unit cards. I don't like these ones though, maybe they'll grow on me. Like to see some of the Hellenic and Barbarian ones.

I loved all the art in shogun 2. It made it feel both authentic and fantastical. I'm also not so sure about these unit cards. It's not as easy to tell who's who and on the battlefield I really like knowing where all my guys are.
