    I think the "headband" looks weird and the shield being a Lion is a bit out of place but overall looks great and pretty useful :p

    The meshes look really good, too bad the animations are really poor. They look very robotic and sometimes snappy. Also i dislike the grey back of the shield. Please fix this, because it could be a very useful model.

    The animations are those of the Orc Warchief in the actual game so I'd recommend he make new ones as well.

    Working on the back of the shield, the animations are from the ROC ChaosWarlord model.

    About the issue with the texture not elvish enough, the point of this is make a knight unit for the high elven techtree with the vainilla knight textures, the shield works with the knight texture, for me more than the spellbreaker or the lieutenant.

    Or, i'm missing something about the Lion?

    -Edit-

    Garithos :D

    This is okay-ish I guess.

    Although the file-size could be lower given the model's rather simplistic look.

    Ah dannae; simple but useful. The lion shield & black armor is kinda off-putting, though.

    Man, this is such a very nice model. I feel sorry for you, some of THW users are having a real trouble in giving objective ratings. This is just /absolutely/ better than some of 5/5-user-rated crap models lately.

    Personally, I will give you 4/5 but I will help the rating so I will give 5/5 instead.

    For quality, it's looking really good.
    I don't know about modeling shits, but I assume the meshes are indeed good, but I didn't notice any problem with the animation. My suggestion is just to lower the left hand a bit (hand with shield).

    Anyway, good job there! :thumbs_up:

    Nice one, and very useful for me. But I think, that you should replace the lion shield. To me, the image of elves has no connetion to lions. Eagle will fit this rider better. I know I'ts a stereotype but still.

    Awesome model! ...

    However... The way he holds the shield is awkward and his attack animations are really odd. The guys looks like he has either a glaive or spear with a really big spear and he uses it to bash enemies as if it's a club... I though he would use it more like a spear with a lunging action.
