Author's Notes and Trivia:
  • If you want to use Mag'har units alongside the regular Orc and Fel Orc units in-game, just download FrIkY's Mag'har textures and follow the instructions here.
  • Optimized models have built-in portrait animations, fixed bugs (if there were any), additional animation (if applicable). These can be used to serve as a template for alternative skins if you want to keep the original skin and model.
  • Check out Ujimasa Hojo's Maps and Resources Discussions, and Tutorials. Please reply in these threads instead.
  • Check out the map and the model previews at my Youtube, BitChute, DailyMotion, and Rumble Channels as well and hopefully subscribe. Follow me on Twitter.
  • While I do these stuff as a hobby, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to accept donations from our more fortunate Hivers I suppose :p.

Well, Ujimasa. I successfully applied the Grunt Model of a Mag'har.

When I try for a Raider, Shaman, and Far Seer. They always turn brown. Yes, I double checked for every single ultimatum. Do tell me if you will ever design Mag'har. Their model variations are low on the Hive.

I can't PM you or write on your wall. So I chose to do it here.

Thank you and as always, awesome work and will always leave feedback.

Nice models, and thank you for making an exact looking version of the orc grunt, because for some reason the mag'har orc grunt skin wont wrap around the original one, but it will affect all of these orc models. So yeah now I have a mag'har grunt for the blackrock clan, frostwolf clan and general mag'har orcs. I suppose im just waiting for more orcs to change. So thank you
