So I was thinking that in addition to the various poses it would be nice/interesting if all the various items that could be equipped when creating a unit, say, swords, armor, cloaks, etc...could be colored, or there would be different designs avaiable to each. (Gold filagree cape, different shaped weapons, etc.) This would make individual empires look different, and allow alot more customization like in Galciv.
Differentiate different similar looking units with different color cloaks, or different weapon designs, and make it easier to tell who is who at a glance.
You could also theme your empire to be more 'savage' or more 'elegant' etc. based on item theme selection.
This is something I'd like to see, but what do other people think?
