Further additions to both graphics files to show thi week. There are now 100 generic leader portraits in the “Leaders” file and a start has been made on specific personality portraits with 10 North African, Ottoman & Central Asian ones being added to the file starting at slot 600. Details of each and every graphic are in the “Leader Image Planning Grid” file but for now here are the details of which nations are represented, you will see that a scenario designer now has a wide range of Central Asian states to work with, that can be matched married up with the 15 generic Tatar unit portraits in the “Units” file.

In the “Units file itself I have added 15 camp follower images and also 5 generic animal heard ones. I have various scenario design plans for these both involving stock theft and the employment of herds of stampeding cattle to break up the enemies battle line, a tactic used in this period by both Japanese and African armies. The images in the “Units” file now break down as follows.

Images 000-016 = Mamluk units (17 portraits)

I now have enough graphic images to start producing modified REN scenarios to use them. First up will be the Mamluk verses Ottoman battles of Marj Dabik, and Raydaniyah, along with a entirely new REN scenario covering the earlier Mamluk victory over the Ottomans at Adana in 1488. Please see below screenshots of the new graphics mentioned above.
