Elite Footman

This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
These are the Elite of Lordaeron's Footmen and tend to be the side of royals & nobles alike.

This is my first ever model I made for public use. I welcome all criticism and feel free to use it just I ask you credit me for use of them.

Hope you enjoy :)


Edit: I changed their shields and pauldrens while removing the fur

Edit: Fixed up the helmet in the Portrait

Edit: Added more flair to the model

This is a Reforged model as despite I agree that Reforged was a disappoint I actually liked the look of the Reforged modle, sorry if it isn't your kind of thing as this my first time uploading something onto Hive and was proud of this look I made so thought I should have it as my first ever model for public use

I didn't find leather of fur around the neck too convenient, personally I don't think it matches a type of character that has too much predominance of metals and heavy armor, despite being just a variant proposal for Footman.
The new sword was very good, I also found the modification for this style of helmet very interesting, leaving it almost completely closed, it differed a lot from the Captain, but already the shoulder pads, remember it too much ... besides there are minimal changes that make still very clear, the same traditional pieces of the primitive model, the work of the new ties is very well done and there is a good framing of the pieces, you have quality to make edits, I think I could only try to invest in more sudden changes between the details of each accessory of the available Reforged models.
Example:
- Maybe try a proposal from Footman with another shield, maybe the traditional one from BlizzCon, the one from the first version Footman 2018, until then nobody proposed to insert it here at Hive ...
- Trying to use the paladins' shoulder pads, can help differentiate more from the Captain and the Footman, it will give an even more differentiated identity, I hardly see proposals here at Hive, from Footmans using elements from the paladins.

PS. As for the designer Reforged, I think it's fair that we consider it to be one of the only few things that are good and truly innovative, besides the graphics engine. Many criticize the lack of proximity to the tratitional style of the models, but a more humanized proposal for the scale of the models, precisely helps to attract new generations of players... who are unaware or do not adapt to the "flattended" designers and so rustic of the old models!

Thank you for the review and suggestions as this is my very first model I am releasing for public use and I appreciate all and any feedback I can get to improve myself

Yeah the models is one of the only good things about Reforged

Well ... it's improved a lot, it's a good start. Congrats!

EDIT : By the way ... the right hand is a little bit in front of the shield in most anim's, this is just a preciosity that can upset a few people, it’s not too much, but calibrating this adjustment a little bit, will make it more perfection... good job!!!

Very useful addition, even if we already have plenty. I think there's never enough footman variation for any medieval/fantasy based maps!
 
Nice to hear :)

I got ideas for the other races ;)
Oho can't wait to see them :D
Btw just a small, very minor issue that I found while using the models it seem's that the armband is missing from the models. I checked it both for the footman and captain

Also it seems that the shields have 2 holes in them when you are looking from the inside of the shield (outside is ok)

I know in the original model there was the issue with the armband going in the glove instead of around it

Actually that was purposed because of the clipping issues also Ohayo he shield is the way most times so you won’t noticed unless the camera was angled in a way
 
Yeap...only reason I saw it was when I started look real deep into all units that have shields.
I saw that the original models do have the armband going though the armor of the glove and only the elfs who have skinny hands and less armor or Lord Nicolas Buzan who does not have any are on his glove have good armbands
Your model has a special minor issue that others did not except for the armband of course :D
Still loving it and will use it!
