    I'm hoping those god awful high elf shields are placeholders like how even the factions who should have had African elephants in Rome II had Asian elephants until later

    Personal opinion but I never imagined Temple Guard being so acrobat and jumpy, had them down more as a brute strength object. Still, looks very well done.

    Got to admit I'm loving the shields!

    And the kickass crocodile.

    Well I'm going to be honest and frank about it.....I cringed when I saw him fly up in the air throwing his weapon up catching it and then slamming down like some B movie hero film.

    But....I'll get used to it. I got over the state troop's spinny roo attack and their superman jump attack. (not really)
    But yes yes good animation job CA!

    It was Morathi work, she send agents to sabotage the High Elves fashion sense.

    I'm pretty sure no elf would wear anything if they didn't look more than just a little good in it.

    Nothing's not a bad choice if you're an elf.

    Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.

    Sound design is really good so far, I'm mostly worried about soundtrack and flutes of Doom. Probably whole Lizardmen soundtrack will be nothing but flutes of Beddow l.

    Um...I don't know what I said was wrong, but I'm pretty sure what you just said goes with exactly what I said.

    ladymissfit doesn't like dark elves. That might help you make sense out of her gibbering. :D

    Oh i actually already forgot that the first game even has a soundtrack. VA and sound design in this total war is amazing but the music is a dreary as the swamp around skavenblight

    We are talking about semi-naked lizards that fight in the jungle. I think that elite units moving with flexibility are reasonable.

    they were made for combat. Being athletic is probably a given.

    They are mountains of muscle and sinew, not mountains of fat. Being athletic is a given and also much more terrifinyg.

    Maybe the Temple Guards had totally lost their cool after they had saw the High Elves shields.

    I don't know how that doesn't make sense. That's not a triple negative.

    In any case, what I said was pretty clear...

    I got it the first time :)
    Not sure why people are hassling you over it. It's definitely not a triple negative or anything like that. It's not even a double negative, actually. Is it the most readable sentence ever? No. Does it make sense if you read it properly? Yes.

    Question:

    Aren't their weapon meant for slashing than to be thrown like spear?

    Anyways, I hope it's not the only animation for them...

    Yup, every animation is them throwing it. All day every day, they just throw it, even when braced. Those other animations you could very clearly see other Temple Guard units doing right next to the central ones? Not in game, all replaced by Spear-Throwing.

    On a more serious note, if you actually zoom in the weapon is not blunt at all but rather has a bladed sharp top. Of course it isn't MEANT for throwing, but Temple Guard are strong enough that they could do it anyway.

    They're 8-9 feet tall walls of serpentine slabs of muscle: it's not going to MATTER how pointy their big sticks are.

    It's still going to go through them...
