Divine Golem (variative)

"The emissary of the Holy force, the Divine Guardian's stone fists smite all those who threaten the good and righteous."

Technical info:
  • Birth & Death animations are accompanied by appropriate sounds.
  • Contains various custom animations including portraits.
  • Minimized geosets and adjusted attachments.
  • Contains only in-game mesh and textures.
  • The size of the models is optimized.
Author's notes:

During creation, I tried to give the models a lore-friendly look to better fit the Warcraft universe.
I'm happy to share it with you guys! Feel free to use/edit the models but give credits.
These models were created for one of my favorite maps - Tree Tag.

Keywords:
Boss, Divine, Golem, Giant, Holy, Infernal, Light, Stone, Summon

Thank you! Yeah, now Pala can have it. I also wanted to put something like this in my map long time ago πŸ™‚

Glad you saw it πŸ˜€ The look of the model was partially inspired by Artanis from SC2 πŸ™‚ While creating, I wanted it to have a slightly 'alien' look, which hints at the origin of the unit that it comes from another realm πŸ‘Ύ That's why I also used that runic circle of light as a kind of portal.

Once again, man, this is really something else.

I can't think of a whole lot of other "holy golems/avatars" in the database (maybe a handful?), so this already goes down just fine as fleshing out a niche. Furthermore you didn't just 'holy-ize' the Infernal & call it a day; you really made serious structural changes, modified all the particles really well, added loads of useful animations (particularly love that evocative & awexome Birth, but also all the Spell anims like the praying one), added a really neat visual 'shimmer' to some of the anims, and just overall really knocked it outta the park.

I particularly love the way you incorporated the classic symbols of holiness, wings & a halo, without directly giving him just straight-up wings & a halo. Instead you went for sort of a thematic approach, with these cool wing-like pauldron-blades, and that sick face-halo thing. Very Protoss/Artanis (which I understand you were going for; totally succeeded there).

Man this thing is just kickin'. I don't have a single use for it but I love it.
