Kul Tiras Forces (CSW)

We are proud to present you the forces of Kul Tiras, the mighty seafaring kingdom.

This human kingdom will get the most unique units besides Lordaeron.
There are more units that are planned, those will be added to the pack in the future.

Because many models share textures, the true filesize of all models combined is about: 47MB

Special thanks to Asssssvi and his collection of Kul Tiras Forces for WC3 Classic, that inspired me to create my first HD models and got me a spot on CSW team.

Mr Ogre man
Awesome pack, quite different from their counterparts and very useful overall. It's great that you've reused textures, as well, to reduce filesize.

This is the best gift ever! I hope we see more of Kul'tiras in the Future like:

Units: Worker, Cannon, Tidesage, Thornspeaker, Tide Priest, Kul'tiran Cannoneer Gunsman, and of course even the Ships too.

Buildings as well. But over all nice job.

Canon you already have the one Tamplier has published !
This is one hell of a gift to the community.

It's like I've been blessed with a gift whereas it's not even my birthday!

EDIT: I have a question if I may: what happened to that guy? :D

I hope this one will be published, I particulary like him. The 2 others are cool too.

You see, this is one of the first models I did, ever (except skins), the file size was abysmal, some armor choices kind of meh imo. Besides reskin he's just a footman with captain's helm, didn't even try to make the kettle helmet like Kul Tirans have, so he got a better treatment (first screenshot). Too many footmen had that helmet, it's not the best I can do, hence the change.

Oh really. Because I was thinking of something like this for example.
The canon and the man behind are not the same unit, the one behind is the peasant.

Awesome and excellent now having Kul Tiras Soldiers in the game now...

My god, these are absolutely lovely. :smile:

I especially adore the Marine, though I don't understand its purpose as an in-game unit (and what separates it from the Footman).

The Crossbowman is another exceptionally well done unit. Everything from your team is just pure gold, I can't wait to see more.
could still be useful as another variation; in the Rexxar campaign there's already like 4 Kul Tiran footman variants on just one map/zone

Oh yea. Through it would be pretty awesome if we see the rest of the Units like the Kul'tiran Cannon from Kul'tiras, Kul'tiran Worker, Tide Priest, Tidesaga which is like a mix between Mage and Shaman Users, Kul'tiran Pikeman the Guards in the City of Boralus, Kul'tiran Gryphon Riders, The Buildings, and of course even the Ships since you can do so much with the Unit Ships from Kul'tiras.

Oh forgot to mention that it would be cool to see Thornspeakers as a Mythic Unit as well as the Heroes like Jaina's Brother Tandred Proudmoore would be like a Rogue Captain, and of course even some of the Heroes like Brother Pike as a Tide High Priest Hero or the Tide Priest name Lord Stormsong.

Hey i have a question, where is the Kul Tiras Paladin, I was assuming that each Nation would have their own type.
Kul'Tirans are a bit specific nation due to their isolation. They indeed have light-worshippers but also they have tidesages who worship Deep Mother and thornspeakers who are related to druidism. So a Paladin as a Kul'Tiran Hero is a very rare person, I guess.

I was just asking because in the old game it didn't matter, there were still paladins in each kingdom. I'm not doubt you i was just curious about this as a whole
 
Man, what renderer did you use to create such high quality icons?
Non at all, it's actually not even an ingame screenshot that I used, but a lower quality World Editor one (because I'm lazy). Quenching wasn't used either, it's 100% vanilla Reforged.

I learned a little from @Mr.Goblin and @Trolldaeron in particular, when it comes to making icons look more than just screenshots. Since I don't have a drawing pad, I do everything with a mouse, so easiest and most visible edits, are shadows and highlights (where it makes sense). Another small trick I used is cutting the screenshot into material layers (metal, skin, etc.) and overlay them with texture images of .. well, skin and metal. And finally a little bit of mouse drawn hair, to add more detail.

Large pauldrons and a heater shield next to a kettle helmet look a little silly to me, but I like the kettle helmet on the militia crossbowman.

Also, I'm curious if a human Kul Tiran rifleman would be in the works for the second war?

We decided not to have human army riflemen in this era. Dwarves just decided to share their downgraded cannons and maybe a custom pistol or two to nobility, but not their state of the art tech right away.

If you ever wish to make separate "peasants" for the Kul Tirans, they could look like deckhands to keep the marine theme.
