    "Gul'dan can be seen in Warcraft II leading an expedition to uncover the Tomb of Sargeras, though not much detail is provided. The player is asked in an orc campaign level to destroy Gul'dan's clan waiting outside the cave. Gul'dan is shown with the appearance of a *Death Knight*."

    HE HAD A FRIGGIN SKELETAL HORSE MOUNT IN WC2!

    @Crusadious, know your lore and your games. If you continue to bitch about models with biased reasons,historical or lore aspects then GO AWAY or hold you tongue.

    @Richardwarrior2, stop it, if you continue to flame and troll this model I WILL punish you.

    so high and mighty for just a simple WC3 modding site moderator,and my knowledge of lore is greater then yours ever will be Werewulf. Let me ask you something,was there ever a summary of Gul'dan with the words saying "he rode a skeletal horse"? No,and Gul'dan is not a Death Knight,he's a warlock that created Death Knights from the slain paladins of Stormwind. And finally,Blizzard only made his model a Death Knight in WC2 because they're too lazy to make warlocks

    1. I never said he was a friggin deathknight.

    2. Warlocks ride skeletal/demonic horses if you didn't even know the lore on that or did research. So whats stopping him hmmm?

    http://www.wowwiki.com/Image:Dread.jpg

    3. They were not lazy as it was default for all hero units to use common unit sprites and was accepted. oh and just to state, its SPRITE, not model.

    4. Also Guldan didn't create DK's from slain palidans, he made them mainly from the knights of Azeroth.

    5. Editing your posts eh lol? Funny...and its funny how you see me as so "high and mighty" just because I have facts and i am a moderator. Your throwing fiction at the author's face and I'm just defending him with evidence.

    and i quote:"@Crusadious, know your lore and your games. If you continue to bitch about models with biased reasons,historical or lore aspects then GO AWAY or hold you tongue."

    You wish to spam here and bitch about the lore of a model? Do this again and i'll be forced to take staff action for your total disregard to the author of this model, the site and your horrible manners and sense of respect.

    That goes for everyone else, ignore Crusadious, if he doesn't ignore then punishment will be taken on him.

    By this point, who cares? The model looks nice, and you people are really spending too much time arguing about the lore behind it. If he called it HeroOrcGuyOnSkeletalHorse, you wouldn't complain.

    Try to appreciate it as art, not finding what you see as a "flaw due to lore"

    Finally, let's face it. The description said "This is a model of Gul'Dan the warlock from the game Warcraft II". You said yourself that he had a Death Knight sprite in Warcraft II. There seems to be a general consensus that Warcraft II Death Knights all rode skeletal horses. Thus, he rides a skeletal horse in this model, because the sprite he was represented by in Warcraft II had a skeletal horse as the mount.

    And if blizzard used a death knight sprite, maybe they intended him to look like a death knight. Just the slightest possibility, yes?

    Crusadious, ANYONE can ride a skeletal horse

    Gul'Dan just has taste. The orc ones rode skeleton horses all through WC2, or didn't you notice those horned demonic things they rode around on

    THE KEYBOARD. STOP TYPING ON IT

    Mecheon,not everything can ride on Skeletal Horses,much the same as they cant on Mechanistriders.They didnt ride horned demonic things (Daemons) becus they kill every fucking thing they see. You know jack-shit about lore,and if u do ur research you'll learn a damn thing or 2. YOUR LIFE. STOP WASTING IT.

    Oh my god, someone's thinking they're a TOUGH BOY. Well kiddo, now lets play

    I'm not sure which WC2 you played you little cretin, but in the one I played the Death Knights clearly rode upon skeletal horses. Horned, demonic skeletal horses, but skeletal horses all the same

    What's that? Not believing me? Well then, how's about the official WC2 concept art for the Death Knight?

    http://www.sonsofthestorm.com/viewer_metzen.php?cat=warcraft&art=57&sub=31

    Now how's about you go do some research and apply lore to the situation. Other races could ride mechastriders if they were made larger, but gnomes designed them specifically for themselves. Skeletal horses are ridable by Trolls, who look ridiculous, Orcs, who look meh, and Undead, who look natural

    OPPS, DIDN'T NOTICE THAT, DID YOU?

    Shut the fuck up and learn some lore noob

    Oh, and I'm not wasting my life. I just know a lot of useless stuff like that

    OMG GUYZ! THIS MODEL PWNS EVEN IF HE RIDES OR NOT A SKELETON HORSE IN WC2. He made this model over the unit from wc2. Doesnt mean he HAD to be the same (although he did ride a skeleton horse).

    10/10 for the model.

    You all cannot even near match me in lore,for I know all you could know of the Horde, and too end this, Gul'dan wasn't a Deayj Knight,he made them from SW soldier bodies and Orc souls (Read Tides of Darkness) and they apparently did something of the same sort to the horses. Gul'dan didn't ride anything, read the fucking book, he walked around like most Orcs. Ok? Basically this concept is like the Green Dragon model in WC2 insted of the Red one which it is supposed to be since it was of Alexstrasza's kin, model-making laziness. And concept art doesnt matter, it is basically fan-made art or art that can mean anything relating to lore or not, so Mecheon don't try to best me, I can beat you at every corner. Have a nice day :)

    I really seem to wonder why this guy goes on and on about a model just because it wasnt just like the one ingame... plus its been 2 MONTHS.. mustve not been paying attention at all to the sargeras tomb issue.

    Crusadious, you are a conceited, self righteous moron. You clearly don't know what evidence means. If you say Gul'dan doesn't ride shit like that, then SHOW us the quote that says he never rode on the skeletal horse. SHOW us the little morsel of lore that contradicts with Metzen's official concept art. All you do is run your mouth. If you have time to point faults at someone else's evidence, then PRODUCE YOUR OWN. "LOL IF YOU LOOK AT WOW, U CN CLERLY C THRAL DOSNT RIDE A WULF, THER4 WC3 IS WRONG"
