I was thinking of making a 300 Spartans mod if folks would like to help. Two versions, one compatible with Empires Ascendant and one for Delenda Est, Alpha 24. They'll use the same Spartan building set as the more realistic versions in the base game. We'll mostly replace the units with versions that look like they're from the films 300 and 300:Rise of an Empire. If we want to, we can do the same for the Athenians and Persians as well to make a well-rounded mod. 

GitHub repository (SVN compatible only; Alpha 24)

I want to gauge interest from fellow modders and artists before I proceed. I don't want to do this one alone, since I have hands full keeping DE up to date. It'll need textures, models (props and units), and animations (to mimic the kung fu-esque combat of the films).

Preliminary ideas: 

Stats should exhibit extremes. For example, all Spartan units are trained at the elite or champion level, but are super expensive; all Persian units (except the Immortals Ninjas and heroes), only exist at Basic rank and are super cheap. The Athenians are in between these extremes.

Persians villagers should be all slaves, since they are evil.

Xerxes does not fight much, maybe he has low attack but a lot of health and serves as support for the ninjas ?

Might be interesting to feature the war rhino (I think there is a Rhino in game, not sure if it has an attack).

Athenians could have the weakest champion unit (They don't have the same awesome training as Spartans nor the dark magic of the persians).

I could commit those textures, they look indeed great. But feel free to make suggestions. I've been willing to improve ours for years. I had some in my eyecandy mod, but never managed to get the reviewed :(

These particular textures I am editing their colors to fit the 300 theme, so we'd have to curate the core game textures separately. But I'm glad you see the same potential for improvement I do.

That terrain test looks amazing. The menu screen looks really good too. I always appreciate it when mods/projects of any game whatsoever present a new aesthetic for the GUI / menu screen. It really ties everything together
