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

    It would be great if it had a decent birth animation.

    Any suggestions on how to improve the birth animation?

    The icon looks like it's taken directly from war of the ring. Not a bad idea but it's not very consistent with the other building icons which are more or less screenshots of the model on a black background featuring matching team color (blue for humans, red for orcs etc.)

    I suppose I could release two icons for it - a generic icon and the WotR version.

    The idea was to release the buildings and units as a set - hence the red backgrounds you'll find on my Man of Rhun and Haradrim Spearman icons

    Behold - the fruit of no small amount of my time.

    Most of these are rips that I've edited to fit in with the UI of Warcraft III

    - 145 of these are rips I've brushed up in Gimp
    - 6 of these I've made from scratch
    - ~10-14 of these I had to scrub and re-paint because the original icon was too muddy/grainy

    Whether or not I can upload these to the Hive, they'll be in my map - serving their intended function :\

    Would if I could, but that's a really complex animation to replicate

    That and I haven't found any way to copy any animations :C

    @HerrDave
    Any ideas for a Gondorian Knight or Rohirim Rider?

    Roherrim is already planned and sketched

    A gondorian knight-- I hadn't thought of that...

    It might end up being a mounted version of the Gondor Swordsman with a different helmet and a tabard - I'm not sure

    Nearly perfect for my map.

    I'd say the look and materials evoke Rohan more than Gondor (yeah, I read the tags, buuut...)

    5/5.

    Edit: Could work quite well as a stables too, with those archways on the right side. They look enough like stalls.

    In the game that the building is based on, the building makes both infantry and horsemen, so they're almost certainly stalls

    Ah, wonderful.

    Very versatile building, then.

    I should probably amend my earlier statement - you're right that the building could just as easily be a Northmen (thinking Eriador, as opposed to Arnorian) or a less urban Gondorian barracks.

    I do have a bad habit of thinking that Gondorian = Stone (which isn't all that true outside of Dol Amroth and Minas Tirith).

    I'm going to blame the movies for that. Also for giving the Gondorians full plate armour. It looks beautiful, sure, but Tolkien would want to brain them with the omnibus LOTR.

    I could easily change the name - the reason I gave it the "Gondor" Prefix is so I can see all of the human buildings in my map in a clump
