In 2016, user Tauer uploaded an impressive model for Sir Anduin Lothar of the Alliance. Lothar is featured in Warcraft II and his actions have made him one of the greatest warriors.
Sir Anduin Lothar has garnered quite a reputation with a 5.00 rating as well as 5000+ food supply (AKA downloads). Tauer gave the armour and weaponry lots of fine detail to admire, but the animation helps make the model very functional. The model includes 23 animations such as defending, spell casting and channeling. You'll find Anduin Lothar is perfectly suited for command as a hero unit.
Perhaps you've already seen Lothar used in custom maps and campaigns you've played. He makes an appearance in over a dozen maps such as the Daemonic Sword ORPG, Legacy of the Master, Defenders of the Light, and many Beyond The Throne maps. With a file size of 385KB he makes for a great addition to your projects.
While you enjoy checking out this month's model, keep in mind that you can also recommend resources for these spotlights; just send me a message. They don't have to just be models, we'll cover more variations in the future. Next month, we'll dive into other resource types available here on the Hive.

The Orcs have returned!
The Second Orc Book of the Legends of Arkain, a hosted series of campaigns by Shar Dundred, was released this week.
Following the events of the First Orc Book, this campaign starts with the Orcs on the run.
New enemies have emerged that seek nothing more than the total destruction of the greenskinned menace:
The Redfist led by Duke Volarian Redfist the Tyrant, the father of Aedale and Cora Redfist from the First and Second Human Books, intends to burn everything that either looks orcish or is either allied or even neutral towards the Orcs to the ground.
The remaining regiments of the severely weakened Imperial Army have been assigned to the command of Commander Daric and his strong mercenary army. In service of the Empire, they have been charged with the task of hunting and killing every single Orc they can find.
Against these impossible odds, the Orcs have to adapt in order to survive the onslaught. Alone, they stand no chance. Allies must be found to help them survive this new tide of enemies for otherwise, it will drown the Orcs clans in their own blood.
Are you up for the challenge? Download the Second Orc Book and prove yourself against your new enemies!
And a special ending may be waiting those who slaughter everything.

In May 2017, The Hive Workshop ran a paired modeling/texturing contest where 6 teams competed for the best leader unit. While entries ranged from sci-fi to comical, it was the Mo'arg Overlord by FerSZ and Murlocologist thatcaptured first place.
Today, the Mo'arg Overlord commands a strong presence. He's got a 5.00 rating and boasts an army of 6500+ minions (or downloads). With all the care FerSZ and Murlocologist put into the unit, it's not hard to see why. The Overlord looks impressive and imposing while coming with over a dozen animations including attacks, spellcasting, and victory poses with really nice particle effects that I wish I was able to capture in the previews below.
One of our goals this year is to start up these spotlights once again. There are many projects available and we want to show off the higher quality ones. Expect to see more awesome projects next month.
If you have any recommendations on any projects that you feel should be showcased, send me a message.
