Dwarf Dreadnaught

Submitted by Em!
This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
I was aiming at a Steam Golem and I used a reference image I found online to some degree then it dawned on me that this was basically a warhammer40k dreadnaught for dwarfs so I went in that direction and even added a flamethrower, neato.

Edit: Added another version of the chaos dreadnaught that hopefully managed to distinct itself even further from the lighter one.

    Same? If your question is lore related then that´s up to you. I created the darker one for my project for more evil sub-race of the dwarfs.

    Edit: Oh Hell, I see what you mean, I must have added the same one twice. Fixed

    By the way, took me sometime to realize you are showing 2 models, one with only darker skin other with lighter, because the lighter one that has its back facing to the viewer, at first glance it looked like a differently designed version of this Dreadnaught.

    I really like these. They look very cool.
    Would it be cool to have a different texture on the stone parts of the Chaos version to make it even more different?

    I experimented a bit, nothing that made it look anything but darker or more metallic which in my opinion just made it unappealing. Threw golden beard on the "lighter" one and it was hideous. I am open to suggestions if you have a specific texture in mind.

    Edit: Looks like I have to fix some texture stretch/wrap issues thingies anyway.

    well, thats awefully nice, it's such a beautiful model...
    but i wished it had some ambient effects too...
    and the fact that it is all with in-game textures makes it so satisfying to watch...
    bloody brilliant model... <3 <3 <3

    Okay, I try to look for something.

    EDIT: Check out the undead building textures. They might be something for you.

    Yeah undead was my first try as well, thought I had it when I stumbled on the ancient ziggurat texture but then I started looking for bronze material and ended up with the human tower.

    Try the console textures. Human ones, they look pretty metalic. But with a little experiment the footman texture can be used for the metalic parts too.

    I have managed to find a good texture for the chaos one, finally. Took some work to mix and match. I wont be releasing that just yet as I want to replace the chaos version weapon with an axe, I also want to touch up on the textures on the lighter one and finally I have been looking at the warhammer dreadnaught to see what else I can do and I am gonna make a variant with a rockets for an arm instead of a flamethrower. I hope I will be finished before next week at least.
