(Hero) Boom Squad

Submitted by PROXY
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Entry for the 29th modelling contest. A pair of goblins ready to blow stuff up. Earlier was supposed to consist of two mounts but that was scrapped during the process of development.

Enjoy.

Updated: Added a few minor things and/or fixed some stuff.

Moderation Approved Works and performs well ingame. Good use of mesh and rifleman/footman animations. Has all the necessary animations and attachment points. Good addition to the goblin race.

    So I'm not really familiar with this new system. Where do I update my model, where do I upload the portrait? ;_;

    Nice, I like this. But for what did you needed more than 2000 polygons? Or is just site's bug as I saw several times it shows polies wrong.

    Well there are many polygon-heavy meshparts on both of them. The weapons being duplicated and small etails just add up.

    A good squad. I just don't get the "Boom"...I was expecting a Goblin Sapper from WC2 but these're better! Nice Job! :)

    Dang, son.

    My only surprise/regret is that more people didn't do Goblins (or even Gnomes); the Little People are prime candidates for this whole "Squad" concept that you have aced.

    As a Goblin fan & a Squad fan, I'm in love. As a word-lover, "Boom Squad" has me quite pleased (even though you didn't capitalize on it with any explodey-goodness!? Even a Death-Explode would've been neat. :<...). The duo are not detailed enough to be separate units (well, at least not Heroes), but together they are just right. (I particularly love the gun-guy; he has a whole tech-backpack with a robo-armature ending in... A targeting-reticule monocle. Lol).

    In terms of animations, it was quite resourceful of you to simply combine the Footman & the Rifleman; works really well (even for those who want this model to attack ground w/ sword & air w/ gun, all it takes is a little custom OE trickery & you're set). You even included a Portrait model (where's its a shame the gun-guy doesn't talk, but then again maybe he's the strong, silent type (or more likely, you just ran out of time :p)).

    It's a shame the new Hive/model viewer doesn't let us look at textures; I'd be interested to know where you found some of yours (especially that TC bomb?? How is that in-game?)

    Good luck in the Contest!

    Please tell me they got an animation where the guy with the shield goes infront of the other guy with the human footman ''defend'' stance.

    edit: Ah alas I saw it in the 3d viewer that they don't. A shame. ;)

    The goblin with the gun only shoots during the spell animations while the one with the sword only swings during the attack animations.
    4.25/5.
