Dwarven Runecaster

Submitted by GreyArchon
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A Female Dwarf, the Runecaster. A versatile spellcaster here to defend Ironforge.
Updated 13 November 2009: Much better portrait, new less messy texture (less green, more leathery), minor graphical updates and fixes.

Features modified spell animations, and attack animation. If you use this in your map, please give credit. You may edit this model if you ask permission first; though its unlikely I'll say no.


Suggested missile model: Avatar of Vengeance missile.
Suggested scale: 0.9
Suggested voice: Jaina, for lack of a female dwarf voice. Her death animation uses Jaina's death cry.
Suggested run/walk speed: 200

Her staff as an item attachment can be found here: [​IMG]
Her staff as an ability icon, and more importantly, as her Caster Upgrade art, can be found here: [​IMG]

    The portrait face is totally mangled and awkward.
    I suggest you use another portrait model (preferably a female portrait) as a base and geomerge the upper body clothes and hair to that model (though you'd probably need to remove the base model's body first).

    Nice model :D
    + First female dwarf on THW, I assume? (Cba to do any research wether it is or not though :p)

    Although I'm normally not too keen on female dwarves, this one is rather cool. Besides, we could use some female dwarves and some dwarf casters in the WE, so this is a great addition to THW's models. +Rep
    But yeah, fix the portrait please ;)

    Portrait is fixed in the most recent release, see the screenshot for a still of it. :)
    And yeah, to my experience, this is the first female dwarf for WC3 ever. :D

    Hmmmm... I like the model, but it still has a few mesh and skeletal issues. If they prove to keep it from being accepted, or if you just want them fixed, I'm more than willing to help out.

    This is so cool! I always imagined runecasters as males, but this is awesome!
    I guess you saved Hive from lack of dwarf models.

    Does it really? I've tested the model extensivly in a testing map. She moves, casts, dies and decays properly every time.

    True, I havent edited the bones themselves in that manner. If you're offering to work on that and really feel it'd add something to the model's usefulness, please PM me. :)

    But the model is cool. The bones are strange but we never see a female dwarf in war 3, so... 4.5/5 :cgrin:

    How would you improve them? You can say they're bad, but that gives someone very little to work with if he'd want to make them better, no?

    Unless you're one of those people that feels every icon needs to be a hand-drawn miniature piece of art while completely forgetting that icons serve a practical purpose other than looking pretty.
