This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Texture for custom model (attached here, please read the post for details on how to use this texture) by Norinrad. Originally made for the Great Troll Wars mod that cancelled several years ago. I was part of the team, and worked with Kimberly, Norinrad and Pins to create this unit - the Axewielder. I was requested to remake him, as a Darkspear Tribe troll, by Teuncreemers for The Oakwood Forest ORPG recently. This version is slightly tweaked and of reduced size (the original is 512x512).

I am making a series of Chaos Trolls and Frost Trolls. If you have suggestions to more trolls within that theme (or want to see them all), have a look in this thread. This texture is not part of the series.

This is a Darkspear Juggernaught. Feedback highly appreciated!

Texture: Pins and shiiK
Model: Norinrad

PLEASE CREDIT ALL OF US IF YOU USE THIS TEXTURE, THANKS!

    67chrome: Looks pretty cool, and well made.

    The metal bands on the shield look a little weird. With the combination of intense shading around the plank joints and the shading underneath them it looks like each plank has a thick, metal ring around it. Which sort of raises a few questions; such as why aren't their spaces between the planks of the shield? And what purpose do the metal rings serve? If the metal was just a flat band with rivets it would look more structurally sound.

    With the supper-clean shading around the hairline the hair looks sort of artificial, it would be nice if there was a hint of a transitional spot between the scalp and Mohawk.

    Anyways, the above mentioned points are pretty minor and this is overall pretty good.
     
  2. HOW DO I USE THIS SKIN?
    This is a skin for a custom model, and you will therefore need to download the model as well. The model is attached to this post.
    The alternate model is used when the troll holds the shield in his hands rather than have it on his back. There's a morphing animation to use between the stages.

    Here's how you want it to look in your imports:
    Axewielder.blp (uploaded skin)
    AxeWielder.mdx (attached model)
    AxeWielder_portrait.mdx (attached model)

    (Optional)
    AxeWielderAlternate.mdx (attached model)
    AxeWielderAlternate_portrait.mdx (attached model)

    Thanks to Debode for making the portrait.
    Thanks to DonDustin for making the shield-less portrait (for Alternate model).


    DON'T FORGET TO CREDIT NORINRAD IF YOU USE THIS MODEL!

    Really nice skin, but I think I see something glitched with the foot.
     
  4. If you're referring to the two toes on the main preview, it's because I forgot to remove another troll in a layer behind it, they're not part of the model. Either way, any glitches with the toes are most likely caused by the model. Feel free to explain though. I might be able to tweak the skin enough to fix it.

    The original model was much better imo but its nice to see some people have gained interest in classic legendary resources.
