  • Hey everyone, I've finally got the time, privacy, and equipment to record and release a Modeling Guide for Warcraft III

    Here's a link to the beginning of the series; I'm going to try and record the next part every day, to ideally have the entire guide be finished within the next 6 days

    Hope this helps!

    Hey man, i read somewhere that you got sick, i hope you get well soon, show that fucking virus whos kaiser boss!

    On a sidenote, your hobbit units are MAGNIFICENT, you never fail to impress :)

    Hey, Teitan - I'm alive!

    I'm actually getting ready to start a goblin pack, just finished a Rohan Town Hall, and I'm going to be creating a modeling tutorial this week with a link to a zip that has all of my tools inside

    Hey HerrDave,

    1. Even after the last couple of years you are still one of my favorite model creators. Still appreciate the Uhlans and Ironclad you did per a request of mine ages ago now.

    2. I hope you will get back to re-uploading the French Infantry packs, because I enjoyed it when it was around, but now I no longer have it. I understand if you are busy though, but I would be interested in seeing that one comeback. No offense to the other guy, but I like the "diversity" of your units and how it gives me, the user, options. Your updated German, American and English models are so great, had to redownload them...hope to keep them this time.

    3. I look forward to any future projects that you come up with, but definitely would love more of the modern stuff and more renaissance stuff. Either way, I will keep coming back here so long as you keep active. Your work is good quality and fits the mold of this game well.

    Either way, take care, and thanks for the resources.
    Can I donate you if I live in Poland? Can you PM me how much dollars you are usually donated? I earn in PLN so I have to pay you 4x times more than your American fellows :p I'd like to fulfill at least the lower limit of what you've ever gotten.
    At last, I love your models. You're in top 10 modellers here. I still can't wait for potential WW2 US Marines and German SS models to your Infantry Packs. And of course Warhammer stuff.

    Hey Broth! :D

    I'm sure it's possible, though I don't know the specifics of how it works; my donation page is on BuyMeACoffee

    Could you zing me some artwork of the Marines and SS you'd like the models to be based on?
    The packs are pretty much finished, but I'm not against adding to them :)
    Hello there!
    Back in 2018 I asked you about a grass model you had in your album, as I thought it was a great vibrant green. I think your resources give a beautiful sheen on maps by making them a lot more brighter. I was curious if you still had any plans to release it? The model in question is this: https://www.hiveworkshop.com/media/model-116.120681/full?d=1523166841
    If I recall you mentioned something about a plant pack but I was still curious enough to ask about it, as a map I'm working on relies on vibrant colors. That's all!
    Hello HerrDave, what program do you use for editing models since reforged? I'm searching for a program that can view models and make some quick edits, I was using Magos before reforged but now it seems to not work properly (won't show textures). If you have any idea about a program that I can use primarily to view models and secondarily to edit i'd appreciate it.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    I still use Magos model editor and MdlVis, but I had to move the old .MPQ files off of the original disk in order for textures to open

    Magos and MdlVis don't recognize .CASQ files, which Reforged packed the old .MPQs into

    I think there's some .MPQs floating around the Hive for folks with exactly the same issue you and I had; but yeah - I transferred them off of the disk to fix my tools

    As far as alternative tools goes, Retera's Model Editor is rumored to be like a combination of Magos and Mdlvis on steroids, and it can open .CASQ and Reforged models
    I've only used it to duplicate or transfer animations though, since the UI is so different from what I'm used to

    Thank you Herrest of Herr Dave.
    By the way, what happend to your WW1 German Soldiers with gas masks (alongside the mounted variants), I was quite fond of them since they were just riflemen edits.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Those were modified a ton and eventually turned into the WWI rifleman I have now

    I can probably create a gas-masked rifleman to add to the pack again

    Not sure what happened to the horsemen, I think I might've pulled them during the revamp and never got around to it.

    I see that you are from Florida! Why did you leave the subtropical coastal region at the center of the USA with no coast at all? Too much ,,welcome to the Miami beach!" ? :cgrin:

    Oh by the way, I am fine, preparing for the holidays. I need to start these days to work on my master work to graduate.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    We lived in a pretty dense area, which isn't the best place to be in during 'interesting times' so Dad wanted to move to the mountains

    This is going to be the first year I see snow :)

    Hey, I wish you well on the road to graduation :D
    MasterHaosis
    MasterHaosis
    Thank you man! I am glad to talk to you!

    Oh, first time yo usee snow? You must kidding me. I have been few times on sea actually. But never in tropic.
    You in turn never saw snow and mountains since there is flat mostly. And tiki bars and coctails. And girls :cgrin: And storms, sharks... at least there is no shark in mountain haha!
    Oh I see snow regularly, but during last few yers we get less and less snow in my city because it used to be warmer. two weeks ago I saw in snowstorm in my cousins village. I even uploaded album on facebook
    I hope all is well on you.
    Would you mind updating your Druzhinik model to include a team colour plane and talk animation for the portrait? I'll also take time to express my discouragement about how no one put time to make mounted Druzhina models and given how you delved in to mounted warrior models I thought you would.
    Cheers.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Hey SNIper, I completely forgot x_x

    The update to the Druzhina could probably be done pretty easily now, I'll update the texture to look more like chainmail instead of grey wool

    I'll look over the Druzhina thread again for details on the mounted one

    Hi, would you let me make my own model based on your roman models, with a mention of your co-authorship?
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Go for it, Javik :)

    -highfive-
    hi i looked at your models and was amazed if you can make a model of Darion Mograine (alive from the silver dawn) and can you make a silver dawn bag(units and banner)? I'm sorry, if something goes wrong, I'm from Russia
    Hello HerrDave May i ask you, do you accept a model requests?
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    It depends on the model, some are too complex for me

    What did you have in mind?

    Hi HerrDave, I Have A Plan Model

    HerrDave
    Hey Pasha - what'd you have in mind?

    There's a couple models on the Hive I'm listed as the creator of, but I only assisted in
    Hi Dave.

    I try to make my own textures. This is a tricky job (especially when it comes to drawing faces).
    Do you draw textures yourself or does someone help you?
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    I get help with the smoother/shinier hair, but I draw the faces I can't find a good texture for

    My best advice is to start with a black section of the texture, use a white airbrush and start at the eyebrow/nose, fading the general shape of the face in and then going to the cheek bones, lower lip, mouth corner, and chin - after that's done, brush in the forehead and lighten it: Boom, monochrome face base to work with :)

    After that, use the smear/smudge tool to get some of the harsher features in, like a sharp nose, scars, horned brow, etc - colouring it is the main thing that still whoops me at times.
    Greetings. I am new to Hive Workshop. And I want to warn you that your job:
    Was partially used by me for this model:
    You are listed as the author and the description indicates that my model borrowed something from your work.
    If anything, I'm sorry, I will be glad if you approve of what I have done 👉👈
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Hey man, you drew upon my work to make something better - I approve :peasant-thumbs-up:
    Greetings friend!

    Your work is wonderful piece of art! I hope problems with authors of "war of the ring" don't more annoying you. (I hear with they you have something problems)

    Если нужна какая-то помощь по русскому языку, пиши.

    And just write letter "Ы", because you can't spell this sound. )))))))

    Late HBD

    Looking for Toy Soldier model that made by HerrDave.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    I have no idea what HBD is :D

    The Toy Soldiers-esq models are found under the tags "WotK" and "Wrath of the Kaiser"

    Though they've had some design changes from the Toy Soldiers days

    Hello, HerrDave. Can you tell me if you still have your old bunker model? I mean the version that don't have any upgrades.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    I read your comment, opened my WotK archive, and I return with ill tidings - I don't have it anymore :<

    I could probably try to remake it, but-- a screenshot would help a lot :p
    Lord-of-Tuk
    Lord-of-Tuk
    Sorry. While looking for a screenshot I found the model itself.
    -Announcement-
    I have a hard time telling anyone 'no' and now I've got too many requests to handle; the stress has been getting to me while trying to keep up
    I'm thrilled you all came to me for your models, but there's way too many for one guy to do
    I need to take a break from these requests, guys

    That's all for now, thanks for reading

    I deeply respect this person. He is the only one who could help me for a huge period of time. And the fact that he is overwhelmed with a huge number of cases did not affect his professional qualities in any way. If he undertakes to help someone, then rest assured, he will do it conscientiously!
    How's it going, man? I was really worried that you were going to halt your projects because of all the crap that happened not too long ago.
    Hope you're still going to keep them up. Wishing the best for you!

    Right now I'm trying to catch up on requests, starting to run out of steam, but I should be able to publish at least 1 more wave of models before like-- passing for dead again for a month

    Right now I'm finishing off a bowl of ramen before going on a walk

    By all means - go ahead and have fun with your project! :D
    Does anyone have v1.27 .MPQ files floating around? I overwrote mine and broke all of my tools :[

    Okay. Now I do. I don’t have any form of permission. But I feel fine about it because people still need to bring their own license. Also. I sounds very much like you make demands here. I don’t appreciate the tone.

    It's because no one who truly cares about modding community cares about legality. Legality limits creations and is no fun allowed. Many of cyber-relics are lost because pretentious and greedy people don't want to share or support them, wiping their face with their righteousness.

    That's one way to put it. I want to keep Warcraft 3 modding alive. That is in Blizzard's favor too. And as long as I don't give people a way to get Warcraft without paying I think I am in the clear.
    Hello Dave. I made a bunch of units (mostly WW) based on your models. Can I post them?
    HerrDave

    Absolutely, man :D

    Glad to hear from you again, by the way :)

    By all means, go ahead man :D

    I look forward to seeing your gas station when it's finished :)
    So, we got a new version of our site.. It would be appropriate to hail its glory by some new models...

    Hey my dude! Sorry to bother, but just wanted to know, what's the progress on that Ranged Warhammer pack? (With crossbowmen and stuff)
    I already did ask quite a while ago, but wanted to know if anything's came out of it.

    I know you're in a tight spot, hang in there, love your work!
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    It got put on indefinite hold when Spectrum sent fellows with bats

    Right now I've got to catch up on two commissions before I can go back to my own model projects, the ranged pack being one of them

    - Greasus Goldtooth (Fellow 1)

    - Goblin Lizard-rider (Guy 2)
    - Gnoll with knives (Guy 2)
    - Female centaur archer (Guy 2)
    - Thorny winter beast (Guy 2)

    Oh boy, this one needs a long answer. Here, I'll send you a private DM(?) with a rundown of everything that's going on - but the short answer is: yes
    Hello. I really liked the models WW soldiers. Do you plan to finish portraits for them? And are you going to make a couple of building models on the same topic?

    Pardon for my english.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Buildings - Yes, I've actually got a few done right now

    Icons - Ehh.. I might have to ask someone else to make those, my icons are pretty awful.
