  1. Hello balduin, I'm sorry but I don't have much time these days...I'm working full time and my week ends are mostly spent outside (this saturday being an exception!) What I can say though, is that I've never given up on anything yet, so I will most likely dig deeper into the Anuradhapura kingdom history, when I'll have time. I agree with you, for a civ to be of interest, you need more materials, more distinctive features. That's what I'm looking for, features that would distinguish sinhalese ancient kingdom from the mauryas in terms of military : units, tactics, etc. Unfortunateley, I haven't found that yet...
  2. @wackyserious Sure. You have my topic about zapotec woman, and this picture:
  3. @wackyserious Pretty textures! If you have done graphics for woman villager, it could be interesting for zapotecs too...
  4. It would be really great if you designed a zapotec woman villager instead of the egyptian placeholder...I think there are plenty references now in the concerned topic...my idea would be a woman with braids, and a dress in one piece (huipil)...
  5. For the church, I think a simple one is OK, at least for the next millenium release. Later on, you'll be able to make a more ornated one It's just that it was shocking not to have one at all...But if anyone has another idea about the cross...Otherwise, I don't have much time these days but I'll try to find some references soon
  6. Please, don't forget to add a cross on the byzantine church :
  7. @wowgetoffyourcellphone That's great news! Don't forget the chinese war chariot, in which the pikeman is constantly walking on his platform while the chariot is moving
  8. @Alexandermb You could use this model, it's a stylised byzantine cross, it's a jewel but I think it"s pretty safe as a model
  9. @Alexandermb Congratulations for this gorgeous piece of work! Now, only the cross on the church remains to do
  10. @Alexandermb That's awesome! Now, just need the cross on the dome, plus one on the church
  11. @Alexandermb Good. But it needs a bigger dome Don't forget a big, golden cross on top, and add some crosses to the church too, it's important to emphasize this aspect of Byzantium. It was a stronghold of christianity for 1000 years, and it should strike the eye immediately
  12. @wowgetoffyourcellphone Yes! The colours are warmer, more vibrant, and yet, softer to the eye this way! The buildings should all be like these A golden cross on the top of the church should be good too!
  13. Byzantine women from various periods: Emperor Nicephorus and his Empress:
  14. Yes, you're right, I'll find other references
  15. Samarina monastery (Greece, 12th century): a little ahead of the game period but I'm pretty sure the style did not change much from the previous centuries...
  16. Byzantine priest (10th century): Eighth century woman and soldier: Seventh century Merchant and Priest: Emperor Romanus II and Empress Eudokia (10th century):
  17. The church is the most important building, it's what will give the true byzantine taste to this set
  18. @Alexandermb Great improvement! You should definitely keep the semi-circular building as a market
  19. It's true the current dome looks like a chimney from some kind of industrial revolution era building...making the building not so dark, and maybe adding some gold woould improve the general looking, for me at least, because byzantines used to be the wealthiest power of their time, and they were not shy about it
  20. You also should add statues and crosses
  21. Actually, this building could make a convincing marketplace ...with a fountain
  22. @Alexandermb I would have thought more of something like this: But if you want to stick to your idea, I think adding a fountain in the middle, maybe with a statue, would look good
