Kul Tiras Footman by Footman16
From Wowpedia said:
During the reign of Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore
, the Boralus Guard became a highly disciplined and formidable force, an achievement that Daelin took great pride in.
After making my Admiral's Elite Guard
model I felt it wouldn't be fair to leave the forces of Kul Tiras without their standard frontline soldier the Footman. Therefore I decided to make a Footman skin based on the look of the forces of Kul Tiras from Battle for Azeroth. For this I chose the Kul Tiras Quest Plate (Waycrest recolour) as inspiration in terms of design and colours since I felt it fit the best (in terms of silvers, golds and dark greens).
Anyone on the Hive's discord might have seen the various WiPs I posted and so can attest to it being all completely freehand!
The picture I used for inspiration was this one:
Again whilst the edits to the model itself are very small I believe they are necessary for the intended look. However if one does not wish to import the separate model and simply wants to replace the original Footman they simply need to import the texture and set the path to Textures\Footman.blp
however the texture will not look as good due to some wrapping issues on the original Footman model. Hence why if you have the file space available you should use the edited model alongside the skin.
Import the .mdx model file:
War3MapImported\Kul Tiras Footman.mdx
Import the Texture and remove War3mapImported\
So it look as follows:

Also big thanks to Frank for helping out with an issue with the extents of the model.
Update 10/07/2021: Added an alternate version of the Footman model with the kettle helmet which is more similar to the reference image.
Update 13/05/2022: Added Alternate Helmet icon provided by Dito
was kind enough to fix the bug in decay bone animation where a floating helmet would remain also thanks to Dito for pointing that out.
