Hellstone Golem

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Drawing strength from the fires of hell, Hellstone Golem wreaks fiery havoc on his enemies.

Miscelaneous:
  • Contains additional animations for instant and channeling spells, stuns, bashes and stomps.
  • Contains reworked in-game mesh to support the character of the model.
Technical:
  • Attachment points, collision spheres and so on, are properly adjusted.
  • Minimized geosets; animations have been made smoother.
  • Contains the appropriate Death animation sounds.
UPDATED:
  • The omnilight color changed from greenish to bright yellow.
  • Fixed the Decay animation issue.
Author's notes:

During creation, I tried to give the model a lore-friendly look to better fit the Warcraft universe.
I'm happy to share it with Hivers: feel free to use/edit the model but give credits.
The model was created for one of my favorite maps - Tree Tag.

The model did not disappear on the end of Decay animation. Please fix it. The light node is also emitting a greenish light, a yellow/orange could fit better.

A very good model edit and excellent use of in-game textures. Works in-game and performs well. Amazing job. Idea for the future: Add an animated layer of molten lava over the firelord fire texture. :)

Well you've successfully combined two of the coolest models in the entire game (& two of my personal favorites, natch) into one excellent combo, so I'm not sure what else to say but

I mean seriously, this is epic. Granted the custom animations you did are ever-so-slightly worse than the standard ones, they are still quite good (especially the "clap" anim, love that one).

BTW, I also combined Lich 😀
But that applause claps are still for his dad ❤️🔥

What do you mean? Should all geosets become invisible on the last Decay animation frame? 😳 Doesn't the game remove the unit's remains after the Decay animation is finished?

Thank you!
I'm planning to release some additional versions of that golem creatures in the future when I have enough of them and I will surely take your idea into consideration :smile:
