    For so long the hive needed a proper gandalf model, good job, the only problem i see in the texture is that the sword is quite blurry, the rest is great.

    The model of Gandalf the Gray is nice but his stand animation is terrible. You should definitely change it.It makes many ppl not liking model at frist look. Also his swords cuts thriught his hat while hes standing. I think he should stand more like Tolkien Elves (War of the Ring) he should keep his Staff and swords in different hands. I didnt even realise he had a sword untill i checked him in gamę.he also should be more straight. He looks like a old man, Who barley stands and Has to use his Staff to stand else he falls down xd. Lemme know if u gonna update him then i will gladly use him on my fellowship map.

    Oh hey Emil!
    It's been like-- 1000 years since I last saw a post from you, welcome back :D

    This model is meant to be an HD version of this guy.

    While I am looking for ways to improve him, I probably won't concede to upright animations out-of-combat.
    Sorry man :(

    Super awesome! Love it, great work :) I really can't see anything wrong with the stand animation at all... It's like it should be!

    If im not wrong i have noticed that Gandalfs the Gray stand reday animation is same as Gandalf the white normal stand? Will it look good if i rename Gandalfs the Gray reday stand animation to stand? I just dont rly like Gandalf the Gray normal stand animation and ppl in my map dont like it too.

    Are you going to make his spells effects too? Also I noticed both these Gandalf models got no death sound.

    - Yes, I just need to level him up in-game to see the spells before I can start working on them
    - Wait, WHAT? *incomprehensible foaming* my bad :x


    The model I uploaded is based on the model from the original game, but isn't the original (I'm sad to say :C)
    If it is possible to extract the models and animations from the original game, that's a trick I've yet to learn x_x

    His sheath is on the wrong side... good luck drawing your sword into your left hand when it is sheathed on your left side. ;)

    Seriosly though, great job! Animations look great, and i too like the stand animation, very much in character.

    Alright, so i looked on the animations again, and i figure there might be problems:
    In stand and walk, he carries the staff only, but the sword isn't in the sheath, though when attacking, the sword magically appears out of nowhere.
    i think the sword should be sheathed in stand and walk animations, and for extra realism, the attack animation should have him draw his sword and attack, though i cant imagine how that would be possible as he would also draw his sword even in stand ready (where he wields the sword already).
    Also, the sword clips with the hat in spell animation.

    Ah! How few "wizened old men crouching over staffs" we have! It's an animation set I think we need some more of.

    Personally, I almost just want that Portrait as a separate model for some cool generic Warcraft wizard. Maybe the Wc1 remake of the Conjurer. Just seems perfect.
