Hoofa Moo'Taur

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Space Tauren - Trooper of the Moo

First off, most of the credits should go to Blizzard for giving me the idea and the base to make this model. But if you're in mood you can give me credits in your map or campaign. Do NOT edit this model without my permission.

Facts on the model:
Model is based on the standard marine model so it should have all the animation prefferences and setting from the marine. I added a attack slam animation (basic the attack of the Dwarven rifleman) where he shoots all three barrels of his gun, also I added proper decay stuff and a dissipate animation to use on heroes (Hero glow can be downloaded on THW too.).
The Tauren wears a combat suit Mk. Soya, some energy totems on his back and the mighty tripple-barreled Doom bolter, which used 88 mm inferno rounds. ammo belt is animated in attack animation and frontal gun barrels rotate. Also, a energy axe blade is attached to the lower front of the gun to maintain excellent melee capabilities.

    So, you degrade someones status on a hobby you know jackshit about becuase it doesnt suit YOUR opinion rather than the general audience? You my sir fail at respect, dignity and knowing when to keep your mouth shut.

    Interesting trivia #3521:
    The Tauren Marine artwork by Samwise was originally done as promotional artwork for BlizzCon 07 (specifically for the performance of Level 70 Elite Tauren chieftain, Blizzard's in house band) and likely inspired the later April Fools day joke.
