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

    The hand of WotR variation in the portrait animations needs a fix.
    Beard and eyebrows in portrait animations of BfME also need one too.

    Btw, great work, glad that all ended well)

    The tree design is a nice touch. I like the green on the BfME shield. However, I would've preferred something silvery and more aligned with its armor, like the WotR version.

    I agree with Mythic. Great models, counting your old ones Gondor has a sweet army.

    Oh dear, was scared you would just replace the old model for the new one, happy I was mistaken.

    - Beard and eyebrows?
    What do you m-- OH GOD

    - WotR variant hand
    That's actually deliberate - in the icon he has his sword tip up against his chest, which can't be replicated without doing horrible things to his arm off-camera @)u(@

    @Mythic I got the idea for the green shields from this wicked-old screenshot of a LotR project that (I think?) never came to the Hive

    As with the majority of your models the old one was better.

    Would you please tell me why the older one was better?

    It's not a huge encouragement to tell me that my work only gets worse the more time and effort I put into it.

    The wrap and shading of the texture on the body were better. The chestplate shading and the team color on this one are bit off I think. The arms and the legs particularly harshly stand out in the places where the naked arms merge with the armour and the sharp team colour suddenly shifts to the boots. Also the body proportions were more fitting the warcraft 3 style.

    The gondor soldier looks like golem/robot. The monotoned shiny steel just doesn't get interrupted anywhere with the exception of his shield which from some angles is hard to see. It would be better I think if there was more variety to his armour. More chainmail-y areas perhaps or different (none?) pauldrons revealing black areas (like with your tower guard model).

    The updated soldier looks much better. I am loving the ranger and the archer. Good work on the animations!

    Finally! Good Gondor Soldiers that are War3 styled!

    Also I assume there will be Cavalry?

    There will be cavalry :peasant-cool:

    It'll be added to this pack, since the Swan Knight / Vile Knight play off eachother well already

    Great update)
    However, there is one bug in Gondor Archer model: one edge is attached to "bone cape 2" instead chest or pelvis, and because of this, his butt looks dangerously edgy in walk animation

    (Also, IMHO, it was good to see a bit more leg movements in attack animation, or at least small fix of this clipping tasset on right leg.
    This is not very noticeable, but from a short distance it does not look very good.)

    Whoops, I'll fix that today

    *Edit 1
    That was a fearsomely edgy butt
    I'll be updating the pack with the fixed archer once I've finished the Knights of Minas Tirith (Based on Rohan Rider animation set)
