Default Tharoon, Decadent Overlords. Warwind based Nation.

PREVIEW IMAGE



-------------------------------------------

Version 0.2

Adds the MA nation of Tharoon, Decadent Overlords to the game.

The basics of the nation are done. Stealthy stuff is missing, so are heroes. The balance might be way off - I've hardly had time to test these guys. Graphics might need a little tidying later too.

But the nation is playable and I'd like some feedback on what's there.

So enjoy :]


------------------------------


This thread is for the MA Tharoon nation I am working on. It is based on the Tharoon race from Warwind 1 and 2 by SSI, but accurate porting isn't as much a concern as the feel of the race.

Here is a summary I posted a week or so ago. It might not be entirely accurate, but it gives you an idea of where the nation is going. Elements that are in the current version are in bold.

THAROON

Racial abilities - AP 14.
MR 12
Hp 10
Str 9
Att 11
Def 11
Size 3?

UNITS

2 Servant Guard - spear/jav and sword/shield versions.
1 Executioner - quality infantry - halberd and bone armour
1 Destroyer Guard - sacred elite infantry - halberd and heavy bone armour, bone crest. CAP ONLY
1 Rover - drake riding cavalry - good armour, high gold cost, no resource cost.
2 Rogue - stealthy light infantry. Good melee skills. One with twin poison short swords, one with banefire crossbow/dagger?
1 Skytroop - Flying medium inf - good armour, mechanical/magic wings, magic blades, wings also a bonus weapon.



LEADERS


Overseer (whip armed basic commander ldr 40 no armour)
Executioner Prime - executioner commander, ldr80
Destroyer Prime - destroyer commander, ldr120
Assassin ldr 10 superb assassin, magic blades. A real feature of the race.
Minister H2, S2D2 with SD 110% random. Expensive. Ldr120. CAP ONLY
Psychic S1 SD 10% communion slave.
Psionic S2, SD 110% random.

Here's a preview of the graphics in the beta. This is for people who want to see all the attack sprites, or perhaps just want to see if the mod is a looker.

Looks nice. I never played much warwind. Don't know why, because I kind of liked the setting and the units and the upgrades (only played human onslaught).

Warwind was very cool, in theory, but in practice, I dunno...I think I made the mistake of happening to play it *after* Warcraft. Kind of took the shine off it like a gallon of turpentine, I'm sad to say.

Still, lots of really, really neat things going on in Warwind. I just couldn't get into it.

Yay another mod from Sombre!!!

As for feedback, huuuum, province defence is too strong, take out the destroyers, too good, as for balancing issues it's pretty good, their size lowers there effectiveness in melee which is great considering their big mean weapons, should I come across something devastatingly bad I'll be sure to tell you!

Very nice mod, cant wait until its finished. E9N9 Destroyers are great(berserk prevents routing, they gain 2 fatigue per turn, have very high prot when berserk, halberds hit like hell) and im having alot of fun with this nation.

The nation does, however, seem a little weak. The large size and below average morale(or slightly above average but with poor defence) makes routing a problem and with no ranged troops(i wouldnt count javelins) and no spectacular magic, sure they have pretty good Death and Astral but thats it and ermors best mages are practically identical but can also raise dead and ermor also has a much tougher army(tower shields, good morale, decent or better armour, standards, ethereal sacreds).
I can see the nation getting alot better with flyers, good assasins and BANEFIRE crossbows but currently they dont seem too great. The heroes also sound good but you cant really say a nations strong because of great heroes.

Overall, very fun but could do with a little boost.

Default Tharoon, Decadent Overlords.

Great Scott! I'd forgotten these guys. I should really update them some time next week(end). I wonder if I'll ever get round to doing the other 3 warwind nations too.

Oh yeah and I'm attaching a proper preview png.
