Alright, I really love this, especially the amount of detail. But I'd say the stand work animation is a bit too busy. Maybe you could leave some of the more subtle things (such as the eyes in the tower) for rare idle animations?
Creative use of textures, especially with the Gilnean ship, but that's t the cost of losing almost all team color. I'd recommend a semi-transparent team color layer over the sails. Also, for the Lordaeron one, wasn't there any less blurry TC Lordaeron texture? I remember there were a few.
Also, what does that mean for custom models? The new models have specular and emissive, as well as other new properties, I guess. Can we expect fixes? Or even remakes of those legendary alpha models we never got to see?
I love the new unit models, mostly, with their less goofy style. Or at least its replacement by another kind of cartoonish. I was getting tired of looking at elves with Neanderthal jaws and archmages with simian-sized foreheads. And I'm optimistic about the animations and that they'll be...
Great, really great use of the Illidan Blade texture, and otherwise cool model. My only remark would be that the glow around his eyes is too solid and looks like a futuristic visor (hey, nice use for WH40K maps).
