07:59, 2nd Aug 2009 zombie2279: Weird. The outlines are awkwardly overtoned, the shading is linear and therefore weird, it somehow lacks a realistic 3D perspecite and looks rather flat. 8:29, 5th Aug 2009 zombie2279: No changes made, 3,5.

    Hmm, for me it looks more like "sword of laugh" ^^
    Needs a lot of shading, the color is eye-cutting, and more little improvements. The background looks the best so far.

    You think its good enough to become approved?

    And btw, who cares about the name anyway? I rename every icon on my map at import,
    like BTNHEROES_NEUTRAL_Heroname.blp.
