okay cool, i like the idea of working on one strip at a time
i havent got the syw game so i dont know the full OOBs for each army and battle that are being used
How things can work, is that the research can be done by the graphics coordinator - in other words source the uniform images (like from Kronoskaf ... I probably spelled that wrong, but it was a big help ... and I wish they had a similar site for all the different periods. :) ... get a set of them - and send them over to an artist to work off of.
In this period, and especially with a smaller scale, there can be far fewer differentiating features between a lot of units, so one might not need to do every single different unit.
-I also prefer smaller scale in gaming miniatures, to the point where I would like it much closer to the scale of the battle being played - mind you, if one goes by that standard, then even those in the Peninsular title are way too big (a 500 men unit being represented by 24 figures) -just to put things in to perspective. In my case, the 'larger scale' wasn't going to be because of personal preference, but rather more to showcase what I had gotten back, at that time.
The fact of the matter, though, is that different artists have different takes on scale, and their own personal style; as a graphics coordinator -at least in my view, is to allow the artist the freedom to do their thing in their own way, within reason (that being sometimes the way a game performs and what needs to be shown will sometimes take priority.
Anyway, I am trying to get together a map based upon files from a few titles, and some of the files I was originally provided by Joe (amoral).
