Looks good, and performs flawlessly. The missile is nice too. Only some textures seem a bit stretched, and some don't fit so well together. But certainly approved.

How was this not uploaded previously? Oh well.

I'll assume nothing has changed & just copy/pasta my critique from the Hero Contest #8 Poll

+Pretty cool; while I had some strange issue overall, each of the constituent elements was just great. A primitive truncheon, a shell-shield, a Gul'dan-inspired back-spine-rack (with non-human skulls, noice), a cool Lure and a giant toothy maw.
+The animations were where this guy really shined. The "vomit", the "lure", the epic Channeling, the expressive Death, the gaseous Dissipate; good stuff.
+The SFX were also very cool; I didn't notice til I opened them up in Magos but the Noxious Cloud & Conflagrate fireball both have creepy eyes/faces on them. The re-worked Incinerate was nice, and the Cloud was dense & seeming 'choking'. FelwoodRocks.blp for the meteor was neat. The 2nd best was the spinning souls on the Meteor-Channel.
+The style was pretty fitting to the game; in-game textures really helped that.
+The (in-game) icons chosen for this were PERFECT, all the more because they were (3/4) unused as ability icons. Loved it.
+WhirlpoolMissile.mdx was probably my favorite. Having him barf up a sea-ball was just great.

~I had some weird sort of issue with the model as a whole. Not sure what it was. Weird bipedal Mur'gul (except they're mutants anyway...)? Weird loping run? Stiff cape? Unsure.
~There was an awful lot of green on this guy's SFX, and not much else.

Good day... I am attempting to use the newer version, not the (Old) one... But... There seems to be a problem? In-game, he just looks like a magic carpet with my team color... v-v

I think I imported the things correctly and fixed the path, but it's not working! Right now only the old one works! v-v

What is wrong, please? Am I being a moron?

Thank you!

Any chance this still gets updated because it doesn't have a swim animation like it's other mur'gul kins, it was walking above water. Well great work of it anyway 👍.
