Model mirroring

Level 19
Nov 20, 2005
Hello. Is it possible to mirror a model in its entirety? And as "mirror" i mean making a footman swapping his shield to sword, hence attacking with right hand, his animations mirrored as well, etc. Can it be done?
I'm asking this because there is a hero model which is attacking with the sword in his right hand and i want to add the "defend" animation on him, but the shield is on the left hand instead.
