Nice! Everything looks nice and authentic. I acquiesced on the player color because I realized a lot of the Persian textures already had a lot of player color. I like your textures, you do an incredib

sorry i can't avoid compare with things that I know.  now they are the Super Eagles from Nigeria (national team).   

And another detailed example of Achaemenid imperial iconography (on Darius' tomb):

I found this number 21 below, the other ones are all labeled "Scythian" and this one is labeled Achaemenid, without specifying the reason. I don't find anything about an example in the "Glasgow Museum". It looks close the number 18 although.

Kuban type.

Quote

This is a type of Scythian skullcap helmet made of bronze, referred to as “Kuban” by scholars (deriving from the name of the Caucasus region from which the largest numbers of specimens were found). They were developed during the 7th and 6th centuries BC and were lighter than contemporary Greek helmets. The helmet’s precise origin is still debated: the known examples are relatively few, but the sites where these helmets were found cover a wide area, ranging from the more western regions (Kelermes, west of the Caucasus) to modern-day Mongolia (Samarkand, Uzbekistan and up to Egiin Gol, in Mongolia).

The Scythians were known for their horsemanship and the defensive equipment of a Scythian warrior was minimal and mainly limited to shields that could be carried while riding or in hand-to-hand combat. Their abilty to launch a sudden attack and withdraw quickly was their best defense, hence their light weapons, easy to handle (e.g. a bow and arrow, a sword, and possibly a shield). Scythian helmets, breastplates and “cnemids” (leg guards) are therefore rather rare.  

The top of this helmet has a small loop which was most likely designed as a support for a crest or another ornament. The precise meaning of the circular holes pierced just above the edge is open to different interpretations: they might have served to attach other protective elements (for the shoulders and the back), or even decorative elements, as evidenced by an example found in the Kelermes tumulus no. 2 (south of modern-day Russia), which was adorned with gold diadems. The inner cap might have also been held in place by threads or straps passing through these holes.

A dilemma whether to include the following: :D

  • Toned down saturation of the red and yellow dyed padded cloth
  • Player color Kidaris cap
  • Player color padded cloth

And why would it be an issue for wowgetoffyourcellphone (seriously could have chosen a simpler name)

According to https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/ArtDesignDocument which I started to update a bit locally:

'"Colors on the units should be neutral (skin tones, browns, grays, golds, bronze, etc...), because bright and saturated color will be used as a player’s color to show ownership. Player color usually is found on decorative elements of a texture."

Entities should have "[a]bove average color saturation (compared to the real world)."

I have read it too, but this contrasts with faction design (colorful palette for Celtic and Persian faction) and existing textures i.e. current padded cloth texture for the Persians. This too adds to the dilemma.. :(

Like Lion, I also find it quite distracting for the eye. I am not sure about the others though, which is why I was asking for feedback. :)
