    What WC3 model do you think would make the best Mephisto after some texture changes? Based on Mephisto from Diablo 2.

    I think the lich would be most like Mephisto if you changed the textures. But the problem is i dont think it would look very good. since Mephisto have big arms and flooting around and wip you with them (sort of). But if you would have to take any model in WC3 i would be the Lich!

    I want Mephisto to be a caster archetype in this map, so he would probably have a projectile attack anyway. I know everyone in D2 loved to exploit his melee attack range by standing across the moat, but you can't do it in my map! Right now his placeholder model is just a color-adjusted Firelord (ala Nevermore from DotA).

    Firelord cos of the big arms but why just stop at reskining? If you got rid of some of the particle effects and changed his walk he might make a good meth but you'd need to do more than just reskin.

    I have never textured or modeled any units before, the only modeler I'm any good at is a surface modeler called Form-Z, no experience with 3DSMax.

    Reskinning seems very easy, maybe I will model a unit when I am better at the 2D stuff.

    Says Void.

    Firelord all the way, the animations are way too similar.

    Yea, I agree with Carty. Firelord is the best unit to fit the Memphisto of Diablo 2.

    I think you should reskin it and add some particle/textures to make it more looks like memphisto when using firelord model. Lich and void are not suitable because of their armor, faces and etc.
