14:58, 12th Aug 2014 MiniMage: It's a neat model. Just tweak the staff in the stand animations. It slides through the hand of the mage awkwardly. Fix this and I'll approve it. 14:05, 14th Aug 2014 MiniMage: Eh, it's not perfect, but what is?...

    looks frking good, and size is pretty low.

    Though we already had a bandit wizard on foot, I didn't remember any Archmages on foot

    Wow.

    I am totally making something that this almost literally fits to a 't'... I wouldn't mind a different face/beard than the Archmage's (perhaps more steely gray or salt-n-pepper, like Uther's beard), but hot dang.

    Thanks. : )

    (for the above, can I get Permission to Edit?)
    Saw your permissory-VM.

    Everyone needs to stop using the Necromancer for this. Looks too weird. Use Malfurion or something.

    I think Necromancer is 'ok'... But you're right, something like Malfurion would be great(er). Maybe even some Medivh; just looks more 'heroic' and also more fluid.

    Still using that Bold text are ya?

    And no offense, but that would literally be one of the worst decisions for this... It's pretty much a dismounted Archmage with a different staff. Re-mounting the intentionally dis-mounted Archmage?... For the staff.

    It's nice to have an on-foot Archmage model. It's also nice to have a mounted Jaina model.

    You know, I've been working on something for a while, for which this is almost literally perfect; Dismounting the Archmage & adding some nice robes & staff is a really nice touch.

    In fact, I'd say in general you have a real knack for creating really 'down-to-earth' models; especially your unit models are quite excellent for fitting into Warcraft, not being too flashy or detailed.

    This guy could perhaps use only 2 adjustments in my opinion... For one, I wouldn't mind seeing a different beard (a bit of steely gray or salt'n'pepper; perhaps Uther or one of the Paladins?) on him, to help differentiate him from the actual Archmage more, so they can be used together. Second... Well, as has been said the "Necromancer" anims are a little blasé for a Hero; feels like something more along the lines of Medivh or Furion would fit better. Just my two cents.

    Keep on keepin' on! : )
