King Varian Wrynn

Submitted by Stefan.K, ~Nightmare
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
As you all know I already uploaded some versions of Varian Wrynn model. I wasn't proud of any of them. I just didn't like them, both mesh and animations wise.

With more effort done I finally made another model of him, now based on the in game models to fit as much possible to in game models.

Without Direfury's help this model wouldn't exist. Give credits to him aswell if you use this model. I used bones and animations from his "Pale Emperor" model.

A bit late, but I'd suggest some icons that'll look handy with this model made by @Murlocologist :
Varian Varian
Another icon I'd suggest is BTNVarianWrynn by @Scias . Many thanks to him!

Update:
Added a custom textured variant of Varian model. Many thanks to @~Nightmare for the texture and give credits to him too if you use this model.

Review: Awesome looking model, very true to his wow appearance while really having that wc3 look. A few clipping issues here and there but nothing too major. Works ingame. Approved.

    The model is really good looking! However really as previously mentioned his skin tone should be lighter. Also his armor is very neon blue, why not make it darker? He would look more like in the trailer; more badass :p

    Really nice work man, I love his face especially.

    His legs is a bit short, but it's Warcraft and he has to fit in aswell.

    I am really happy to work with Stefan.K although I had trouble with time so it took so long for it to be released. Would be happy to have more collabs soon (not at this time XD)

    In the words of Death Knight Arthas, THIS IS MORE LIKE IT!

    The in-game texture version of this was already pretty good, don't get me wrong, but this custom texture variant really takes it over the top. Well done to the both of you!

    hmmm, a recomendation, make the swing of the blade faster, and add a tail particle to it, so it looks more smooth and warcraft-ish.
