===[COMMITTED]=== Seleucid champion chariot

Recommended Posts

 

Needs to be for 2 passengers, anchor for 4 horses. Just the chariot no horses. 

Bonus: textures for the two units in the first image:

Seleucid chariot champion was at first designed as a melee chariot. But gameplay apart, some screenshot with different perspectives would be cool.

That looks good enough! Good work. Maybe tone down the saturation a bit. Easy fix.

Is it rigged? Or the wheels are able to rotate at least?

0 A.D.'s chariots always looked weird to me. Yes, no scythed chariots have survived, so some artistic licence is allowed. However, those forward pointing blades puzzle me, as do the scythes attached (or actually piercing through) the horses.

Literary evidence mention scythes attached to the axles (those are there) and blades below the cart itself (those seem to be missing), but no scythes attached to the horses are mentioned, as far as I'm aware (perhaps those could be removed?).

Xenophon is a relatively reliable source (he was an eye-witness), e.g. Anabasis I.viii.10:

πρὸ δὲ αὐτῶν ἅρματα διαλείποντα συχνὸν ἀπ᾿ ἀλλήλων τὰ δὴ δρεπανηφόρα καλούμενα· εἶχον δὲ τὰ δρέπανα ἐκ τῶν ἀξόνων εἰς πλάγιον ἀποτεταμένα καὶ ὑπὸ τοῖς δίφροις εἰς γῆν βλέποντα, ὡς διακόπτειν ὅτῳ ἐντυγχάνοιεν. ἡ δὲ γνώμη ἦν ὡς εἰς τὰς τάξεις τῶν Ἑλλήνων ἐλθόντων καὶ διακοψόντων.

In front of them were the so-called scythe-bearing chariots, at some distance from one another; and the scythes they carried reached out sideways from the axles and were also set under the chariot bodies, pointing towards the ground, so as to cut to pieces whatever they met; the intention, then, was that they should drive into the ranks of the Greeks as they advanced with the intention of splitting the opposing line.
