    I really don't prefer the Reforged aesthetic & have no intention of modding HD so I'm not commenting on these models.

    Except that s h i e l d ... Woof!

    I for the most part really like what they done with the models and their textures.

    Obviously as with very many people who played WC3 back in the day, I got hooked on WoW later (not the last expansion, but most of them).
    So the theme they went for is pretty much WoW's, but slightly bulkier (it's an RTS after all, have to see differences better).
    Sure there were small things to nitpick on, like Naga human ears etc., but can honestly say that I don't get the aesthetics dislike that some people bring up (unless you also dislike WoW's).

    Cannot change anyone's tastes, but would love to see more Hive veterans participated in HD modding!

    EDIT:
    To elaborate more, I used existing meshed and custom textures.
    - So the helmet for example is made from edited pieces of: Bandit Spearthrower bandana, Captain's bevor, Dwarf hero's beard ring.. was not easy one to do.
    - Shoulders for example are made from elements of Antonidas' weapon heavily edited and some PopcornFX
    - Similar story with his weapon
    - The whole blinking Emissive (slowing stuff) and disappearing/appearing shield was done by Tamplier777 with his knowledge of .mdl edits, so technically that part wasn't done in Retera's

    Cherry on the cake would be that these purple parts get teamcolored as well. But I'm not sure that's even possible.

    would be possible, would also increase the filesize by a lot (ORM is big and cannot be compressed to work properly).
    But I think the colour of arcane is usually purple-to-blue, so I'll leave it for sure.

    Hey Moonman, many thanks for this model. Can you please give some tips on reducing the size of the model?
    • What tool would you recommend? Photoshop?
    • Which files can be reduced the most without losing quality?
    • etc?
