Info:
I got inspired by the Centaur-Crossbowman idea from the Shining Force series. Those folks were really tough there Also, there's a lack of low-level creatures so this was an easy descision.
But for the current centaur model the only suitable crossbow was Scout's, not Marksman's. So I've remade it a bit - added some wooden details and made it look suitable for the shooting anim cuz the creature is loading an arrow onto it's weapon.

As far as I think it's balanced - the cost is increased, the damage is not too high and the attack parametre is cut - all this for Precise shot and slightly better HP.

This creature would fit Fauch's 3rd upgrade mod.

Maneuver works good with Precise Shot I guess, though it doesn't trigger at the Maneuver-retaliation it does help the Centaurs position themselves for the next shot.

Armed with modified crossbows, taken as trophies in battle, those centaurs don't need their enemies to stay far as the crossbow hits harder at short distances. And in close combat the Defenders also show themselves as skilled warriors.

well, yes, it could work as a 3rd upgrade, but I would make it weaker and remove no melee penalty.

Maybe My logics of combining words into sentences is not as of a native speaker. I'll change it soon, maybe with a bugfix... if someone finds any.

Centaur Defender

The name defender would fit with a shielded centaur and heavily armored one.Try to put him an iron bearstplate and a chain mail.Alo an metal or wooden round small shield(maybe wooden reinforced with metal).It would look nice with an other skin colour,maybe red or human skin(from Centaur and Centaur Nomad).Try to update it.It would be nicer.

And can you tell me where I should place it if one hand holds the crossbow and the other is used to shoot it?

I named it "defender" because of it's orientation to short ranged attacks and melee, so I imagine his role as a tower\guarnison guard or something like that. Though I can make him a suit of armor, I just need to think of an suitable. The thing is - those "horns" growing out of his waist make it hard to find an armor which will be fine.

I'm sorry but I'm not proud of this NCF and I'm not approve it.

Really too similar to the original creature.



It's correct for its weapon but you should rework the textures to create better.


P.S.

Moreover, the MonsterShared tag is void into the GameMechanics file.
Even if it's true that causes none of bug for the game and the editor,
RTMG will not be able to import it because the MonsterShared link is required into GameMechanics.
This NCF is the only to have that to empty.

First post edited, new download and graphics info added. Now my creatures will be hosted together with Psatkha's.

I'd like to thank SimonaK for finding bugs and Adrius for a rewised description for the creature.
