    It looks more like a heavy cavalry with that armor, it also makes him more humanish that elven (whatever that means). Otherwise looks good to me.

    Solid unit overall. I like the horse armor and the weapon's handle is pretty.

    With all the black armor he looks rather an outcast one and spiked shoulderpads whilst fulfilling the rule of cool arent exactly highelven either, alongside that shield.

    Ok, Sunday Blinkboy send me a model with the animations reworked to look less robotic, i need to give him proper thanks for that ;_;, and Mystic give me the go to use his Halberd. So i need to change the rotation of the spear in some animations to upload the new version.

    About the shield texture i'm working in an alternative even if a like the actual look xD, and i want to point at the dragonhawk and the big cat face shield...

    The second screen is ingame to compare it with the vainilla knight.

    It's a lot better now. But it's weird how now that you gave him lunging attack animations you also gave him halberd-type weapon... oh well I guess you can blame it on elven incompetence in battle. Those long-eared human wannabes should stick to bows and spells!

    Oh my... Two months and no mood here ;_;

    Well thanks to Idaero Ace for his work doing the sun logo from scratch.

    I was thinking for a solution for the shield that don't requiere a custom texture, the tabbards from paladinjs were the inspiration from this.

    Don't known if left the sun in white like the unicorn simbol, or made it golden.

    That's a cool symbol, but texturally it'll need some work before it fits in with the rest of the wrap.

    nice design and good looking, but animation attack - 3 and victory stand are a bit strange, when you look closely.

    Nice additions to the horse, and the headband seems like a nice idea, but it looks awfully odd. Also the shield could be angled a little less, he seems to be holding it perpendicular to the horse, while i feel it should be somewhat parallel.
    Aside from that I think this is a 3/5 for now.

    is it "light"? It's more likely a heavy cavalry than a light cavalry : it's very well armored.
