Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section. Excellent work!

LOTR inspired map makers are gonna jizz all over this. Well done! A welcome addtion to Hive's resource horde. Nice model and animations. I like that you gave him a thrust attack animation.

    Hi! Nice model Dave, but after dl-ing the file, I got only one mdx file, with 1 model in it. And that models cape has no team color. Only the shoulder pad has TC.
    Can you please re-check it?

    I'll check it out right now, just a sec

    *Edit, okay, I've just completely removed and re-uploaded the models directly from the folder I use for my own map resources, try it now :)

    I've been looking for a Fountain Guard model for a long time... a long time.*

    Worth the wait.

    Great stuff, HerrDave.

    5/5

    *Yes, I know there's a WoW-rip version of one out there and no, it doesn't count. They just look... weird.
     
  6. The arm of the icewolf variant is visible through the shield in the model viewer.

    Yep, that's because without Icewolf's skin - the outer part of the shield is invisible due to it's UV map

    You're seeing the inside of the shield through a layer that is solid when the skin is put on

    To not step on Icewolf's toes, I've not uploaded the skin here, only a model variant that has been adjusted for it's use for any people who were already using his skin for their project.

    The HP bar is a bit too high above the unit. Please fix that.
