Love Captain's Herdon shoulder pads with fur and Ferdal's wings on his helmet especially πŸ‘
Normally Attack animations inherit the movement from Stand Ready, but since Tormin doesn't have Stand Ready, his Attack starting position is the same as in the Stand sequence if you look closer. This means you have to put in the same opening frames in Attack 3 and 4 and change leg positioning, otherwise Tormin will freestyle with his feet like a disco dancer while changing his attack angles πŸ˜€

I'd also suggest changing Herdon's wolf badges on his shoulder pads to flat re-wrapped version of that wolf heads because the amount of polygons they're adding right now is really high and that resuls in the file size. In addition, you don't need those little things to be so detailed πŸ‘Œ
Again man you can try to animate this ponytail as it is quite noticable due to the size and team-color πŸ˜‰ Don't give up on animations friend, keep pushing the limits! Because, my son, the day you were born, the very forests of Lordaeron whispered the name, Johnwar...

Thank you, I have also noticed that but I don't really know to fix it. A tutorial about animations would really help but I haven't found any that I understand.:smile:

I think I'll do some easy tutorials that will cover the basics and explain the tricky little things that people often stumble over and thus give up animation.
I gave Tormin 2 custom Attack animations, Attack Slam and Spell Slam as a bonus πŸ‘ They are not that epic, but for a non-heroic footman, I guess they are fine:

Amazing job as always johnwar.
Was gonna be a prick about the meaning of triumvirate but that's just pedantic.
