HaradrimRider

Submitted by Uncle Fester
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is the third Haradrim model from Lord of the Rings, which i made for the Hive. This was the first Haradrim model i tried to make, i still got the pics of the first attempt(s) in my Albums. Anyways, i decided to make him different then the first versions. This Haradrim is also wearing a facemask, in order to keep a little variation among them, which also makes it easier to distinguish them. As in the previous Haradrim models, the turban is directly exported from WoW, but it uses an ingame skin. I suppose he can be used as any other human rider either. Feel free to use it in any way!

EDIT 1: my thanks to Frankster's good first moderation of this model. Thanks to his nice suggestions of what to change, this model could receive an update of (so far) unique features, which aren't present at the other Haradrim models. He suggested to add a few Haradrim-esque things like towels and such, which brought me to the idea of adding this banner-like thing to the rider's back and some light armor to the horse! Thank you Frank, your suggestions helped me a lot! The icon also got updated, so it's much easier now to tell the rider apart from the infantry models. The filesize went a bit upward, but i think it's worth it.

EDIT 2: Sorry, forgot to put the skin for the wood-part of the lance to twosided, so the bottom of the spear wasn't visible. Anyways, it wasn't realy noticeable ingames, but i thought it would be better to fix it, nevertheless.

EDIT 3: Changed the pants into black cloth ones. I watched once again the movie (it was running yesterday on TV), so i noticed that most of the Haradrim had dark pants (either purple, black or red), so i came to the conclusion that it would fit more to make them black cloth pants rather than the so-far brown leather pants.

EDIT 4: just applied the "new optimization method" at all Haradrim models i made. Filesize has been reduced and quality slightly more increased. :wink:

Frankster [img]: Model works in-game and performs well in-game. Well executed concept and good use of in-game textures. Good job.

    thanks. I just hope the mod likes it as much as you guys do. :wink:

    yeah, i initially planned to equip him with a sword (skeleton warrior's scimitar), but i changed my mind during making. I thought it would be more fitting for a cavalry guy to simply have a lance + 1 more custom attack anim :wink:

    Btw, what do you think? Should i remove attack 1 anim or leave it? Attack 2 is custom made and IMO better fitting.

    Attack animation 1, fix it, and this model should be approved.

    no, i discussed that with Frank already, I'll simply remove the Attack - 1 anim, and leave the Attack - 2 as the only one. I'll also add some Haradrim-armor to the horse. Frank was right, it should be a bit more Haradrim-styled :goblin_sleep: otherwise it's going to be a bandit-lancer with turban IMO :eekani:

    thanks, dear neffew. :wink: Yeah, it has some unique features, which make it differ from those so far. I'll try to make the swordman version too, after i'm done with the next university exams. :vw_sad: When the swordsman & watchtower are finito, i'll start making the mumakil (oliphant, Haradrim battle elephant @ the siege of Minas Tirith in the movies).

    you'll see some more from the Haradrim collection. Soon enough. :wink:


    lol, hopefully you mean patiently. :wink:

    @ both of you: just wait for the Finale.....the Mumakil is still in progress and I'll try to make it a special piece. It will be the last model that fills my Haradrim Collection. The other models before it are:
    1. Haradrim Swordsman
    2. Haradrim Watchtower
    3. eventually mounted Haradrim Archer
    4. maybe a Camel Rider
    5. definitly a Commander
    6. certainly a Haradrim Assassin/Slayer as Hero

    If the Mumakil is accepted, I'll try to make a Haradrim King on a throne ontop of a Mumakil maybe. :wink: Now i got warmed-up by making those Haradrim models. I guess it could be a good idea to continue making them, so that they can be used as Saracenians or Arabians either. The more models, the better for the Hive, afterall. :wink:

    oh, forgot to mention, that i appologize for the old screenie, i added a new one while updating it, but unfortunately it didn't change, yet. :vw_sad:

    Nice model, seems to be useful if someone wants to make a lotr maps, but still its useful on any other types of map.
