      Large project, huh? Does it have something to do with Traggey's models maybe? :)

      His models will work great with your animations, though I'd suggest (if you are finishing his staff) to touch his skins too as they look pretty HQ to warcraft textures. Pretty sure you know that. Good luck on the project! I can't wait to see it.

        Hey there Stefan! It's a good guess but it's actually not Traggey's models :P

        I'll probably contact Traggey regarding that when I'm finished with my current project. As for what that is, I'd rather keep it a surprise :)

        I don't know how much work I'll be doing on Traggey's stuff if I do that, I guess it depends on how much he's done himself already. Not sure I'd feel too good about desecrating his awesome textures though.

        Oooh, I like it even more now. :D

        Great to hear that. I hope it will get finished soon.
        My guess is also you are finishing your Turalyon, Alleria and you started some other human hero too? Young Uther perhaps. :)

      Hey man. Quick question, do you plan to give Garrosh and his Gorehowl the same do-over as Grom?

        Maybe at some point! It's definitely not on my schedule at the moment, but I'm not ruling anything out :)

        Hey, thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately I'm not going to be making that model, seeing as I hate that design for Blackhand. It's not really fitting for him in my opinion. Maybe someone else can make it :)

      Hello, when you use 3dx Max for making models, do you start from a box or 2d polygon then extrude?
      I would like to know which of the two do you recommend that saves more time on making a model. :)

        The body modeling from box-mode is a good trick for quicker modeling. Hmmm... Zbrush? Sounds little familiar, could give it a try. For now, I'm making faces using spherized box with increased teselations/iterations then mirror, somehow I don't think if it is slower method. Is it a slow method?

        No, I wouldn't call that a slow method. I think it's quite efficient. It might even be quicker than the edge method, but I think the edge method is more effective if you have a front and side reference image. It allows for pretty accurate modeling.

        In the end, the best method is the one that you find works best for you. So if the spherized box method works fine for you, there's no reason to make any big changes to your work flow :)

        Zbrush is worth looking into, but it might take some time to learn properly. It's very different from 3Ds Max.

        Thanks, I'm learning the 3Ds Stuff , special thanks too to Lynda.com for its tutorials (you could check that too if you have to master or expand more of modeling) ^^ Hmm... Zbrush, I think I might drop that a bit because 3DS takes a lot of time and focus to learn, now I'm working on making trees hehehe

        Unfortunately no. I've been pretty busy lately, and as such I've not had time to do any modeling.

      Hey Tauer! I love the look of your models and you're a role model for me, so can I ask you a favor?

      I'm making a model of the character Thanos from the movie Avengers: Infinity War, and I've been having trouble making a realistic/accurate looking face and head for the model. I looked at your Orgrim Doomhammer model and thought the head looked perfect.

      If it's alright with you, could I use that part of the mesh for my model?

      If it's too much to ask it's completely fine. I just want to get your permission first.

      Thanks in advance!
      1. Tauer
        Tauer
        Sure, no problem :)
        For future reference, all of my models are completely free to use and edit, like it says in my signature. This includes using parts of my meshes. A heads up is always nice, but if I don't get back to you right away you're welcome to go ahead with the edit. No need to wait for permission.

        BTW, looking forward to seeing the model! Infinity War was absolutely amazing, and Thanos is badass :D

        Wow! Thanks so much!

        I just wanted to make sure you were okay with it, just in case. I don't just want to take parts of models without people's permission.

        That's good to know for future reference like you said.

        Thanks again so much! I'll make sure to credit you when I post the model.

      Hey Tauer, can I edit your Gul'dan model ? A simple recolor for facial hair and removing the .. ''Back horns''

      Tauer have you ever encountered a problem with the Grommash model, for some reason it won't load for me. If you find anything that could help me use your model that would be great :D (I'm using the normal Grommash Model)
