    remove it's weapon, and if it doesn't, make it have a good attachment point.

    Want me to optimize this for you?

    optimize in any other way than automatic? cause ive done the regular one with mdlvis.

    i didnt want to remove any of the 2 weapons, cause then the attack animations would look weird, best thing i could do would be to replace the cleaver with a club for example, cause they could be of similar mass and length&volume, so the animation would be okay.

    I say get rid of the hook, it doesn't make any sense to have it there.

    The texture looks awesome, but you should get rid of the hook and get a club for him instead.

    for the reasons i mentioned before i couldnt do much more than replacing the cleaver with a club imo. but i really dont have any clever idea what to replace the meat hook with - something that in case of flinging around would act similarly.

    Wow very cool model. Looks very much with the real one.
    Suggestion: An armoured version of it[as seen in LOTR:The Return of the King] would be cool.

    Good work, both of you. I would add some extra detail though (mostly a texture-issue), because it still looks like the Abomination.

    Well done, nevertheless ;)

    Finally, the endless legion of drooling, mouth-breathing, window-licking, gelatinous-brained, lotr-map-making zombies will finally, finally... FINALLY stop requesting a fucking cave troll!

    Mega props to you!

    doesn't the troll in LOTR have some kind of chain?
    in this case the hook would be perfectly fine...
    great model anyway
