The vanilla game lacks officers within the various units at your disposal. I am starting to correct this with the Empire, whom logically you would expect to see officers standing at the front of their men, leading the charge. This change is essentially cosmetic, but the officer is functional and will engage in combat alongside his unit. The officers are the same size as other members of the unit.
All units that can be recruited by the Empire (except for Steam Tanks and the Luminark + Heros) have an officer now, including cavalry.
In the future I hope to use more models for officers, and different animation sets (such as the Outrider officer using a rifle as well), but there are some still bugs with that.
Enjoy this second release!
