    30 minutes wasn't enough to make a good terrain, you should at least give a effort on it.

    It was Reaper's request that I be quick so he could begin working on the map. Withhold your scrutiny my friend.

    And as for why Oprichniki should be in it... Because they are like the 16th century Stasi... They should be cloaked melee, low dps, early game harass unit.

    I know some soldiers German used. The Swiss and Germans used pike, also they mounted on horse with a crossbow these were called Cranequiniers. The Germans used cuirassiers, they served Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian. In Renaissance the Germans used pistoleers, the earliest pistol armed infantry. They also used Reiters which are also armed with a pistol, they look like knights with a pistol. Also they would use lancers. Of course, the Swiss and Germans used the halberd.

    Make it realistic, without night elves and such. Many use non-human model that do not fit well into this kind of theme.

    Also Russians used Riders in Baroque.

    What about Turks. Use Sipahi model as timariot, make janissary if possible. Ghazi are Turkish warriors. Azabs, Qapikulu. There are not much models that can be used for Turks on Hive, but at least Sipahi model.

    The English are a great idea, you could use Longbowmen, Billmen, Yeomen or such.

    Ottomans are next for the 1.2 update.

    Sipahis and Janissaries will be their unique units as well as a melee stealth unit called the Assassin.

    Also the British are getting Skirmishers, an anti-ranged infantry ranged infantry unit.

    Germans are receiving two new units:
    -Pistoleers (Ranged Stealth Infantry)
    -Reiters (Ranged Cavalry)

    1. The English are the British, Great Britain is on the island of England.

    2. Everyone used some form of assassin, just not called an assassin.

    3. I'm quite sure Reaper has already given the British Longbowmen.

    @Reaper: Russian cavalry, Oprichnik, and Cossacks. And you better have a damn Tsar Cannon, (not the actual Tsar Cannon of course, just a large-bore cannon :p). Btw trees look like mega-shit on Lord's tileset.

    Yeah, but when they captured Egypt in Renaissance.

    I advise that Tsar Cannon should be named Bombard or Giant Bombard because there was only one Tsar Cannon and it was not even used.
    I know that the Turks used large cannons such as Dardanelles gun.

    I bet riotz didn't even play the map since Russians do have a bombard cannon and I have a new custom tileset in version 1.1.

    "(not the actual Tsar Cannon of course, just a large-bore cannon :p)" Please read an entire post when replying.

    I haven't played the map because I have no one to play it with, because you have been ignoring my requests for you to get on Hamachi. Whore. :S
