Dreadlord (Pre-Beta Look-A-Like)

Submitted by Kuhneghetz
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Drealord (Pre-Beta Look-A-Like)

Model by: Dan van Ohllus (aka Kuhneghetz)

Descriptions:
I've got inspired by the Dreadlords from the alpha and pre-beta versions of Warcraft III, so I've made a little remake from it to make this model look similar.
Based on the Dreadlord model with a new walk animation, because skirt looked a bit awkward when the old walk animation was played.
And all textures are ingame, so don't worry about special paths.

No custom icons are needed since the ingame Dreadlord icon fits very well.


YOU MUST GIVE ME CREDITS IF YOU USE THIS MODEL IN YOUR MAP!!!

Feel free to edit this model for your projects as long as you credit me for the model you based it from.

Enjoy! ;)



Also, I'd like thank Dionesiist for his hint on how to attach the skirt part to the leg part of the rig.

    Please don't tell that both the skirt and the wings are un-animated.
    EDIT: Not the case :p

    Dan, you should use "Abilities\Spells\Undead\CarrionSwarm\HeroDreadlord.blp" texture, it doesn't have that horn-shading on the head.

    Holy shit! Never thought there is an unused Dreadlord skin in the mpq. I shall take a look and use it. Thanks, Alastor.

    EDIT:

    UPDATE!
    Model is using the new texture now.

    If you still see the old screenshot, press F5 to refresh the page.

    Note that this model is NOT the official pre-beta model though.
    It's just my own remake from the beta dreadlord.

    No, this model will not be given further updates if that's what you mean. It's the "pre-beta" Warcraft III version of the Dreadlord.

    Wow... I like the original dread lord so much more than what thy put in game. Same with what looks to be the necromancer. Yours is a piece of work too. Didn't download it. I'd need reason. And it would just end up for personal use. Someone said the wings are unedited?

    The wings on this model uses the doomguard texture (but still has the dreadlord wing mesh with some edits), and I added a color tint effect on the wing.
