Balrog Of Moria

Submitted by Sellenisko
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I was really hoping someone would one day make Balrog model...At least some decent....Nothing. So I created it myself. Then I thought someone would make a texture for it...Nope....So its me again, using ingame textures. I might find some better one day. I am opened for suggestions. Its not the best model I ever made, but i guess its the best Balrog model there is. I added some small flying animations, nothing extreme, because in my opinion Balrogs dont fly (that much....). Anyway enjoy and if yomeone wants to make texture for it, tell me I will make different wrap and we can make something epic out of it.

Anyway i guess its good to have even ingame textured versions, due to lowering filesize.

Dont forget credits and See you soon on the next model.

Yours -SvH (Sellenius von Hellman)

    The hive viewer does not show particles.

    @Sellenisko: Nice model. I'm sorry i never got around to texture it, though i feel like you have done a well enough work with the wrap to make the ingame texture work as it is. I hope you keep making lotr models, it is perhaps the biggest genre in wc3 mapmaking, and all models made for it are guaranteed to be used by a lot of people.

    Nice job! My only suggestion is that you should make the model a bit bigger. I know we can make it bigger from the editor but that messes up particles. The models default scale is really small for a balrog.

    Very cool dude, I was looking for a demonic unit to use as a mini hero and this is perfect. Although the wings are a little upward and it should be more to his back. Anyway I like it what it is right now, in game textures, low file size and awesome model indeed. Hope you make an icon for this.

    Move quite alot like the one in War of the Ring.
    Wish there were a better texture, but as you said, you'd probably have to do it yourself.
    Either way, nice work with ingame textures, and the custom animations, though rigid simulate very well the War of the Ring model.

    It took me a minute just to stop staring at it and start writing a comment.

    This is awesome. As awesome as doom guards may be, it's about damn time somebody made a good balrog model so we can stop using them in its place in all our lotr maps.

    Great use of in-game textures, great file size, the whole thing is incredible and I especially like the whip.

    The only thing stopping me from saying this deserves a DC is the fact that its animations are simply too stiff and need to be smoother, with more arcs and less straight movement.

    By the way, you might want to improve the head and horns to look more like the inspiring concept. It would take a lot of words to describe how to make them look more alike, but thankfully I think you can tell pretty clearly by looking at them.

    5/5.

    I decided to upgrade the model, because somebody is making new custom texture. So i will mote the wing s a bit to the back and will try to improve some things all of you suggested.

    InfernalTater: Thank you again. Will try to o my best. I thought too its time to make some better balrog... All versions of Balrog i found was only some strange moifications of ddoomguard with even stranger custom textures...andd well..they were even worse than the normal doom guard...Anyway, lets get back to modelling :D

    Hey, good changes, but I've noticed something else.

    During the spell animation, the whip doesn't lash properly at all. It's like a bar stuck in a bent shape. It should have a sort of "bump" that moves from the handle of the whip to the end as he lashes out, with the whip straightening behind the bump as the bump moves forward up the length of the whip, reaching the end just at the end of lash.

    This also definitely needs some variations to its animations so he isn't doing the exact same thing over and over again.

    Very useful model for all those Lord of the Rings maps.

    I played around with it in the World Editor. Some of the cloud models and other fire effects uploaded here at the Hive fits perfectly with this model when used as attachments to add more effects.

    Well, it definitely would have been even more amazing if you did that with actual ingame textures :p Regardless! It's still pretty damn awesome! Good job both of you! @GhostThruster @Sellenisko

    New animations you say? I'm intriqued! Seriously can't wait for it to be released. A year?! You should upload it now, and update it later! I need this in my life! At least with the new texture! :)

    And for a secret modding project *shush*...
