King of the Dead

Submitted by Stefan.K
This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
A Skeleton model for the Modeling contest #33.

It's a hero model, but deleting the hero glow can also be used as a unit.
It can be both ranged and melee hero.

The file size is big because of duplicated mesh for the death animation. Just for clarification, before anyone mention it.

Give credits if you use it and enjoy!

PS: Sorry about the crappy in game screenshot, I'm having a lot of problems lately with all of my warcraft 3 versions and I am not in a mood to tinker with those anymore.

    Love seeing you make War3 models again, and this is a great comeback! He looks like a classical fantasy villain.

    I never stopped making them. I have a lot of unfinished models. Only some minor things remain and they can be uploaded.

    Great model!
    Have you considered making a version with beret? 'Cos then it would be the wine-throwing skeleton from Darkest Dungeon.

    Not really. The inspiration for this model came from the Undead Altar(reforged).

    Always glad to see people still modding Classic. Also Undead! Some serious scoliosis, tho. ; )

    Love me a good skelly boi, and especially maintaining the fun Birth & Death anims. Dissipate is borked (at least in the Hive Viewer). Also it's cool that you got inspiration from Reforged; didn't even notice the new Altar looked like that. : )

    I kinda feel like the bloody-cup & associated animations sorta pigeonhole this guy out of a number of uses, but then again this is a Contest entry so it has to follow the theme.

    I like the model. but its not very immposing as a King, reminds of maybe a lesser king, mage or noblemen. This would suit more in an RPG then a regular melee map, even murlocs look more tanky then this. I aggree with Grendel the lower legs look abit off too.
