      Hello! I have a few questions.

      I really liked your Estalia unit models. Will they have icons? Are you going to continue to create models of Estalia or Tilea? Forgive my curiosity.
      Thanks in advance. :)
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        No worries, I actually like when people check up and ask what's goin' on :)

        They will have icons, hopefully stylized ones instead of just 3d portrait snaps

        I am actually in the process of revamping the Warhammer units, starting with Estalia

        - Handgunner: Improved Breastplate/collar
        - Swordsman: Rapier, new animation set (95% done), improved breastplate/collar
        - Halberdier: New outfit, new helmet, new animation set, shielded variant
        - Crossbowman: Will exist
        - TotallyNotARecolouredReiksguard: Will exist

        I've been running around in Warhammer: Return of Reckoning to get a better feel of the direction I should take the Warhammer units - but I'm also getting shafted because I hate PvP and the PvE is awful when you're under-geared ;n;

        Thanks! I will be glad to see new works on the subject of Warhammer Fantasy units. Estalia has many interesting troops, such as Crossbowman, Diestros, Pikemen, Caballero/Conquistador. Love it.

        Good luck in your endeavors!

      Hi, i am a chinese map editor, can i use your LotR_Stone and Rings_Brick skins in my new map?
      (The map will post to Official battle platform of Netease, and there may be some incomes)
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Under normal circumstances, I'd say yes

        But Netease is-- evil, so I'm going to say no

        Sorry dude

      I was wondering were the french ww1 units set is no longer available. Are they gone forever ?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        They were taken down because they strongly resembled hairy gnomes, I'm going to be remaking them in the current WotK style - they're actually the ones I'm working on right now

        (Well, not "Right" right now, I'm working on a Warhammer hero, but the French are on the top of the WotK list)

      Hello! Can I have your permission to make a custom skin for your dieselpunk troopers, based on Dune universe and upload it on Hive?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        From me, the answer is always yes

        In this case though you'll have to ask Zess, since he's the one who does most of the work on the Dieselpunk pack, I just made the base skeleton and animations he built off of :)

        Good luck!

      Hello, kind sir, I've noticed from your animation videos that your Mdlvis works flawlessly, whilst mine has laggy camera and often crashes.
      Do you have some secret special version of Mdlvis or something? I tried different versions of it, but I can't seem to find a good working one.

      Anyway, love your work, have a nice day.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Unfortunately I don't have a secret version of the editor that works ;_;
        (Example, mine crashed 10 minutes into the Halberdier rework and wiped all of my progress)

        I do, however, have some tricks to stabilize the camera and I've learned where the pitfalls are for crashes (not how to outright "fix" them, though)

        Stuttering camera workaround
        - Middle mouse button and slightly turn the model
        or
        - Right mouse button and slightly move the camera's position

        BS crashes
        - Copy/pasting geosets and trying to move them without binding first
        - Binding meshes to the original skeleton of a Blizzard model (usually chest, upper legs, and torso)
        - Editor just decides to eat your model (SoL)

        Sad, but still thanks for the tips, I'm mostly animating in Retera's Studio but it still has some bugs with keyframe interpolation, so I'll have to do it in Mdlvis.

        HerrDave
        One trick to smooth how the editor handles - there's a checkbox called "Workplane" above your tools on the right side of the screen, tick it and you should see a vast improvement

        The only drawback is now you have precise control over how you move your selected polygons by selecting the preferred axis, holding shift, and clicking & dragging

        (Rough, but you'll have to live with perfect control :D)

      Hey HerrDave, I really like your Dieselpunk Heavy Weapons. I'm doing a WW2 map and I also love your ww2 soldiers models. I was wondering if you could make a mortar and Anti tank version compatible with WW2 models (I would like the English ones). anyway, I really love your work !
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Ah, I'm not the one who animates crew models - I just animated the single-soldiers and modeled/textured the WW2 soldiers

        I believe SonsOfSami(?) is the one who has been converting the Dieselpunk weapon crews into my WW2 variants - he moves the meshes over and I tweak the animations to fit better

        If he's online, zing him a message, I'll fix the animations up and send them your way :)

      Hey HerrDave, I was curious to know: Did you ever post your model of Durin's Bane? I noticed it exists in your albums and that you marked it as "finished" in one of your threads, but I can't seem to find it anywhere, unless I'm missing something? Or have you not posted it for other reasons?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I havn't posted it on the Hive for ultimately foolish reasons.

        If you'd like, I can send it to you directly.

        Well, I would be very grateful if you decided to!
        A fair warning though: None of my Warcraft projects in the last ~14 years have seen a release to the public, so the chances of the map using it being finished and released are fairly slim. Just so you know.

      HerrDave,

      A friend and I were wondering if you would be interested in playing Warcraft 3.

      The mapmaker is a fan of yours and likes your content. The map itself is set in 1900s-1960s and features nations of WW1 w/ alternative history paths. It is a grand geopolitical rts custom game. If you're interested in joining us for a game, please reply. You might like to see it and parts of your content in use for this map.

        HerrDave
        Dooooom!

        Unless you're in like-- America and hosting the game between 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM, I might physically not have the time to join you ;_;

        My schedule is something of a spaghetti ball right now, and I'm (broadly speaking) homeless right now x_x

        Still though, The HerrDave is interested

        We could host between 1:00pm and 5:00pm on a weekend.
        We're both on and near the East Coast so time zones aren't a problem.

        Here is my discord: Korgius Rex#6791
        Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/id/lordkhorgee/
        ^ Steam/or discord are the best means of communication.

        Note: This particular weekend, we might be busy.
        I think Sunday will be the perfect day since I have all the time Sunday. But next week/weekend might work.

        Ah, because they strongly resembled squat hairy gnomes, I ended up taking them down for the great Revamp - which has thus far taken like-- a year x_x

        Presently I'm just stuck optimizing the skin space and researching their guns - since I've got to include WWI and WWII uniforms, gun metal, rifle wood, leather pouches, various boots/leg-wrappings, the flag, and enough hair to use as a paintbrush for 3D facial hair

        Well, I guess you should make what you feel like but if you want to step on the usefulness carpet, just check to see if some good things weren't already made.

        I, for one, support the idea. Pyramidhead and the nurses by you would be great. Although there are other universes that I think you could do a great job of recreating, like the Witcher, or Mass Effect, if you care about those. :)

      Hey man! In your WotR map is plenty of models that you didn't uploaded (Like Mrikwood trees, bushes, Osgilliath bridge, gobiln slavemaster etc.). Why don't you upload them? And how's the progress of the map? Can you make some vids of making it?

      Hey! Since you did King Thingol do you have an plans to do other characters from the First Age? Fingolfin or Morgoth perhaps?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Possibly Fingolfin, though I'll need to dig up some concept art

        Morgoth is tricky because he has a number of designs and I don't know whether or not to make him with the Silmarils in his helm or not

        That's great to hear! There's a great lack of good First Age stuff being made so I'm looking forward to it. As for the Morgoth question it was just a suggestion, I was more wondering about First Age characters in general.

      Hello, wanted to ask, did you Made the Angmarin texture yourself? Or ripped it from some LoTR game?
      I want to use it on other units :D And was curious if I should credit you for it (I would credit you anyway, that's a stupid question)

        Cool. I've noticed all your models use a similar bone structure, and I must say, your models are a lifesaver for me, they're so easy to modify and customize both visual and animation wise, well, you can see for yourself in my model thread.

        I have a small favor, It would be so useful to have a slow walk animation, to use for any units that would require it, and since all of them have a similar if not same structure it would be very easy for me to import onto whichever units I need.

        Good luck to you sir, your models are awesome!

        EDIT: And then I see that Thingol has one, what a coincidence! :D

      I'm making a 'survivor' model for my map, and maybe release if it turns out good.

      Can I use some of the animations from you infantry units. They have some great and varied weapon animations, that looks a lot better than the half-squatting marines from wc3.
