The Mahdist Army lives again, great work!

Will you be giving the non European Armies a little more variation in appearance may I ask?

The skin of the mahdist really is too dark and doesn't look good at all. It should be dark-brownish like this

Or at least you should make it in some way so you can see his face features and not just the eyes...

Best place to start, is instead of forcing players to have a certain skin colour, use the code from the sailor's outfit, and define the skin colour.
having two variants for white/dark skin colour for both genders, and a simple detection system for which skin colour was used for the face...
should work.

About the skin colour, Sudanese people have VERY dark skin, to the point that it's almost black.

I think it would be great to do it in a similar way to the Deluge mod - replace the gender option with race options such as European/African, or Aryan/Hamitic as it would be called in late 19th century. As you choose one of them you get a different selection of skins and hairstyles. Also the customization of the face shape of the two races could be made slightly different.

Maybe some afro/curly hair texture?

We are going to have diffrent face variants. One step at a time. Only have one guy who really does all the modeling. But as i said in the post that unit is not all we have done. We have diff mahdist with Afros etc. The units will not be all be the same hoping to get diff variants.
Thanks

Welp you changed it again, so I'm not even bothering to let you keep most of it.

Mahdists could have straight hair, a lot of north African and Arabian genes around there.
