Goblin Assault Tank 'Gazlowe'

Submitted by General Frank
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The tank's manual:
"The heavy, medium-sized battle tank of the Goblins can easily take out weak units in one blow. Also, a heavy plating of a custom made alloy has been assigned to the tank design to insure the best protection against melee, ranged and magic. Two tanks with a multi-purpose fuel has been fitted to the end each thread. Additionally, the tank's turret can be upgraded with two rocket pods afterwards to make it also deadly against air units."

Features:
- Animated tracks and fitted foot print tracks
- Fitted effects and smoke
- Simple but effective design

The mesh of the tank has been made in Mildshape3D and has been assigned to the steamengine's bone structure, so it uses nearly the same animations as the steamengine (You'll be rather base the unit off the steamengine in Object editor.)

Don't distribute to other sites. Give credits if you use it in your map or campaign. Thanks.
Special thanks to frostwhisper for extensive testing and for making a propaganda picture for it.

Goblin Assault Tank 'Gazlowe' (Model)

11:22, 15th Jun 2008 Pyritie: The mesh and everything looks great. The unwrap on the sides looks a little stretched, and you have TONS of bones, making +200KB for a model with no custom textures quite gigantic. Plus, do you really need all of those...

    How did you rig this model to another's skeleton? By hand through oinker's? Or some other program?

    Great mesh, BTW. I think it would be nice if it had an "Upgrade First" animation set without the rider though.

    awesome, great for any goblin related thing. but the hull ( or is that only used in ships?) of the tank looks a bit strange, the greenish color, it doesnt match with the shiny plating on the treads
    great work anyways

    Great Model I must admit, however, the two missile pods cannot be used? Maybe that should be removed oof so the main battle cannon is the one that it can only be used.

    The rocket turrets only appear on the alternate animation, like the steam tank. So you're free to choose.
