    Very nice model!
    Makes more sense that knights use a shield instead of a lance.

    Great model. It adds a unique addition to the various Knight models on the workshop. While not far removed from the original concept, it has good changes. The replacement of lance with the shield is a good touch and makes the knight seem complete with the original attack animations. (Never understood why the original knight had a lance but no lance attack animation). The addition of the helm allows the knight to seem more competent and prepared when compared to the flashy paladin-ish original.

    In my opinion, the only downsides I see is the stiffness of the shield during attack animations and the oddness of the legs. However, those are minor as those really can’t be helped with the way the original models were made.

    If I may, I would like to give a suggestion and idea. A suggestion I would add a skin with the stylized L or blue twin-headed eagle of Lordaeron to the face of the shield or the front of armor (as you had done to the Captain) for when multiple factions/nations that use similar color schemes or symbols (such as Stormwinds Lion symbol and blue color or the scarlet crusade’s stylized L symbol and white color) are used in maps and campaign.

    My idea I would like to provide is to create either a separate model or add alternate animations. These would have the knight armed with a lance in the place of the sword and have the shield replaced with a Lordaeron banner with the addition of lance attack animations. ( Most medieval armies had two types of Calvary the heavy spear/lance shock Calvary used to smash formations and the sword/mace wielding Calvary used for prolonged melee engagements.)

    Over I like the direction and look of the model I give 5/5. Keep up the Great work, Lordaeron deserves some love.

    A bit simple, but useful as an alternate Knight.

    Kind of a lot of TC on the front of the horse, though, IMO.

    Thank you RyanHayes ! I will definitely add a version with the symbolism of Lordaeron. As soon as I gain enough experience in creating animations, I will definitely bring your idea to life)

    May I suggest a different more direct angle to the portrait?

    TC is made so because to highlight the rider (with a large distance of the camera) if you have any ideas, share with me. I know how to listen)

    Good model, and different to other knights.

    But the red clothes of the head looks a bit weird, maybe make it plate armour or copy the golden pattern u have in the butt of the horse.
    Also the model is a bit too heavy, it should be around 250kb (other knights in the hive that i use in my map has around that file size), yours is the double, try to reduce it.

    At the expense of the size, I'll think about how to do it with the horse's armor too.

    Reduced the weight of the file due to the linearity of animations.

    295kb is really much more usable, good job. 4/5

    Why do u keep the unoptimized models uploaded?

    When I saw the third shield model I got excited...but why can't I ever seam to find a knight with the defend ability? You could even make the horse put his head down like a mad bull. #need

    Good model but you can lessen down the TC parts a bit. :)

    I will not redo this model anymore, this version suits me.

    At this stage, I am engaged in changing the appearance of the standard models of the Alliance. When I finish what I started then I’ll do the revision of different variations of animations, weapons, etc.

    Apart from the shield and some minor eye-catching flaws, this looks like an amazing model. Keep it up!
