Preview! Preview! It's the Faction Symbol Preview!



Here it is, ladies and gentlemen, we have our first REAL Preview! We shall tell you the inspiration behinds these :

The Hivites: I'm still not really sure why it's an archer. Probably some random.

The Philistines: Dagon the great god of the Philistines, commonly pictured as the symbol.

The Israelites: The Lion of Judah, symbol used for generations of Israelites.

The Amorites: Sin the great moon god of the Amorites, Sin's symbol is the crescent moon.

The Girgaarmadilloes: Their name means "Client of Gesh," Gesh being the god of light (sun).

The Canaanites: The Golden Calf, the symbol for Baal, god of the Canaanites.

The Perrizites: The people of the lowlands and farms. The villager is a common example of them.

The Hittites: This eagle was a common artifact found in excavations of the Hittite cities, pointing towards a significance.

The Gibeonites: The wine jar, in excavations of the city of Gibeon 68 wine cellars full of wine jars were dug up. Also when the Gibeonite tricked Joshua into making a peace with them, they carried these jars.

The Jebusites: The walls of Jebus (modern day Jerusalem), the only city of the Jebusites and one of the only walled cities in Canaan.

The jar in that Gibeonites symbol looks too much 3D... but it's OK

Cool!

Although time has passed a bit I would like to say that a new faction might be on it's way..... what it is may be a secret for now.... And thanks for the compliments.
