New Officer Unit for the british faction
« on: January 30, 2018, 03:01:25 pm »
As you know currently there is only one kind of officer for every faction in the game.
But since the new Highlander Unit has been introduced to the game in the last Update it would
also be nice to see a new officer unit in the game and the obvious choice would be to implement a scotish officer.
The historical uniform of a Lieutenant of the Gordon Highlanders could be used as a dresscode of this new Unit.
For example:

Perhaps if the game was set during the Crimean War.

Still it would be nice to see a suitable Officer for the Highlanders.

Highlander officers would have worn pants during the Napoleonic Wars.

I'm sure it's planned but as Saris mentioned that's a mid-victorian uniform, doublet instead of pantaloons and Napoleonic Coatee. It would be a great addition to the existing officer class not sure how high of a priority it is though.

You're off by 90 years. That painting is of an officer of the Cameron Highlanders circa 1940.

Fine then, if the game was set during Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.

I don't think that he was intending on the pictures to be historically accurate. He was most likely using it to demonstrate the idea ;)

Could be one of the next class, yeah :)

In general, I'd like to see one officer for each unit but I don't really know if it would take much time so...

I'd like that, once we have most of the specialized classes added. It's weird to see a line officer leading riflemen around.

P.S though those uniforms do look dashing! Wish i could have a portrait like that :)
