    Wow, just wow.

    While I can't legitimately comment Reforged assets anymore (Refunded), I have to say this is just wow.
    Many of your other models/skins are awesome, but this one is just breath taking. Just wow.
    Congrats and keep up the good work!

    Oh yes, should have showed it better in the video, cape and tabard is team-coloured... just picked violet in the showcase, since it's fitting for Dalaran.

    There you go, proper screenshot with team-colouring:

    Quite strange, I thought you would do exactly that, but then I saw the health bar was red-ish so I assumed there was not teamcolor.

    Glad there is! Even better!

    EDIT: And thanks for the TC showcase!

    Amazing work, if I am to properly reforge the game, I will for sure use this model.

    Awesome! You could make High Elf Aethas Sunreaver by changing his weapon to staff and making his head a High Elf

    Someone tried the head transplant operation in Reforged, it simply isn't possible, the animations are F-ed up, and portrait doesn't work.


    No longer own.. oh boy.

    Wee there will be a footman for sure. About other units I'm not sure about, just making the assets for campaign, so far the task is all human kingdom footmen and captains.

    Do you plan to do more Kirin Tor units and buildings?

    Just had to ask, they're my second favorite faction in WoW(after the Forsaken), loved your Emerald Nightmare btw, even though I no longer own Refunded :p

    hmm I guess I'll just use the High Elf Emissary as the base model and if you don't mind I'll use your assets here to insert them there... that is if I ever get a PC to run Reforged or Retera Studio
