Hi all.

I was watching some WoW cutscenes and got inspired to make this model, originally it was just a fanart and was just for show but then i was like "Why dont i make one for the Hive, it'd be really cool". So here i am c:

I tried my best to optimize the mesh esp his armor but still the file size is still quite big (near 500kb) and heavily compressed the textures so the filesize wont be a killer.

I made a set of animations not too many, because 1 animation adds up alot of filesize to the model :c (Still practicing, shout out to Blinkboy for a very helpful animation guide). If you think the model could use some extra more animations feel free to let me know c:

Been forever since i last made a model for War3 so let me know if the model is lacking/missing anything, i had alot of fun making him and turning him into a War3 model was just as fun because Neodex is just so nice. So yeah, i hope you enjoy c:

Updates:
1. Inflated the weapon, Stand - 2 animation added.
2. Further improved the major scratches on the armor, improved the contrast between the bigshapes of the armor to make them stand out more from each other, fixed some skinning issues.
3. Added hair, footprints.
4. Remade the weapon.

A very nice custom model. Works in-game and performs well.

    This is probably the best Draenei model on this site.
