This happens to a lot of Royal Guard units.
Before DE there isn’t really “Imperial model” so this looks like unfinished work.

And it has been there for long. Why doesn’t anyone consider this as a problem?

First, they should fix the appearance of guard units

I’ve been trying to focus on this issue since the release, especially with the jinete model, which I love the most. The Japanese consulate let us train the jinetes with the correct look, so I believe ignorantly that is just a copy and paste work. Maybe I’m wrong. I know that gameplay and balancing is a thing, but I’m really disappointed with this lack of attention to those details.
