High Elf Cavalry

Submitted by Fingolfin
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A knight of the ancient noldorian lineage.
Complete with footprints, blood emitters, and all the standard attachment points.

Red parts are team colored. Textures, mesh and animations were all made from scratch.
Note that all elf models share the same body texture. If you use them all, texture size will be much smaller than if they were to be used individually.

14:04, 5th Sep 2012 HappyTauren: I don't know what you've done but he looks terribly awkward in the walk animation, very unstable and wonky. Perhaps you'd like to make him 'jump' in a different way or more stationary, any way you can fix this?...

    You could give it a bit of white steel, if you intend to preserve the contrast. Doesn't have to be heavy armor, either; you could just give the horse armor on its neck, nose, and chest.

    Yeah, i checked that out, but if i were to have the same color as the soldiers armor, which would make sense... it just doesn't look good. Sorry.

    By the way, just thinking. Would be neat to see these models with everything the same except with steel armor rather than gold/bronze. If I were to make a simple saturation/contrast change to your textures for use in my own maps, would you mind?

    That's a sweet horseman just as the others, I like that there is no armor on the horse, I feel it would not fit the feeling of the lightweight soldier who is riding it...

    Rhun eh? Sweet, I can tell were you got the cataphract idea from (pretty sure it's not canon) ;) Are they going to have pike units too? Or have you not decided yet?

    Well, as of rhûn i have not made much plans, i just thought it was something that might be fun doing.. I do think i read somewhere in the books that the horses would be armored like cataphracts, if not at least the picture came naturally to me as they wore scale mail for armorjust like the persian cataphracts did. ;)

    Ya i do agree though that as Easterlings I do think they represent the more "Persian" and less "Arabic" parts of middle earth and that cataphracts would make sense for such a people. I think it would be really cool to see that in Warcraft, as there aren't any cataphract models I know of.

    I already made a riderless horse model for this by request of someone else.
    Attaching it to this post. It might ofcourse be useful for any kind of horse unit and can be retextured to be a critter.

    Wow! Great model, like always. This model has done much to boost my elf-esteem. Is there any way you can make a Sindar variation of this, though?

    Here you go. Note that you need the textures from the sindar spearman as well as the Horse_White.blp texture from the high elf cavalry.

    The Horse is fabulous, it deserves it's own separate rating.
