Clay Soldiers


Every once in a while someone releases a mod and its just so off-the-wall, so unique and full of so many various features that its hard to actually sum it all up in a single post. We’ll try and do our very best here, but I just know that somethings going to end up being left out.

So with that said, I present to you: Clay Soldiers for Minecraft.


This mod for Minecraft is truly a work of art. Now you can craft tiny clay soldiers which – based on their colour – will divide up into warring factions. The soldiers can be armed, armoured, mounted on horseback and so much more.

Here’s how it works: A clay soldier is an item you can hold in your hand. It is crafted using a clay block (for substance) and soulsand (for sustaining intelligent life). Specifically, one block of clay and one block of soulsand can be used to create four soldiers. Once you have a nice little pile in your hands (up to 16), right-click to place them all at once. They will quickly spread out and begin to roam the landscape. They walk slow and don’t jump very high, but they have enough arm strength to climb up a single block. Unfortunately, since they lack a decent skeletal support structure (or even skin, for that matter), their delicate figures can be horribly mutilated by even the weakest of blows. A player can cripple a clay soldier in just a single punch. So naturally, they aren’t hostile towards anything bigger than themselves. So, what in the world are they qualified to fight against? …Other clay soldiers, of course!

  7. Mr. Gordon says:

    This mod would be so much better if some items from 1.0 could be added to the soldiers like lily pads for water walking and iron blocks for shields. That would make it so much better.

I even reverted back to mincraft version 1.8.1 and it still doesnt work. I even deleted that imf file or whatever…please help!

    make like pirate ships for them the size of a boat but looks like a small ship that solders can get in and shoot cannons. maby you can add a flag that shows what coller it is

  17. Trewq says:


    Clay boats of 3 sizes (scout (holds 2), destroyer (holds 16), carrier (holds 4 planes)).
    Also potions should work.
    How about /pause /play commands?
    Beacons should be used
    They should come to you if you hold a buff object (stick, glowstone) similarly to cows and wheat.
    Could you make preset arenas that could be made with /clayarena ?
    More mounts like donkeys
    With /realistic there should be clan disputes, leading to death of some soldiers and classes that are random (Thief, Turtle, MEDIC!) also for realistic, personality to stay at front, sneak to king…

Got something to say? Go for it!
