A nice variation of the Naga Myrmidon/Royal Guard model. Cool mesh. Works in-game and performs well.

    groovy :3 i like it. this is definitely a unique naga

    although he could really use 'walk swim alternate' anim, just like i've done for a few of my submerging naga models

    Love everything about this. Really glad to see awexome Warcraft-style models from you again. :D

    I particularly love (though I ran out of time to say so in the WIP thread) that you opted to go back to the original "full hook" style. Not only is it a friggin gnarly, sea-style weapon, but it's much more unique than generic-stabbing-instrument-number-2. Love the hook, love the chains, LOVE the hook.

    Also a big fan of your attempts to differentiate the mesh itself; making a chubby tubbers of a Naga with a cool face was very neat. Love the new armor & sash; really helps set him apart.

    It's true you re-used Myrmidon anims, but there's not much else to do with a snake-man. Personally, I'm beginning to wonder if there isn't a way to use that to my advantage... Maybe make it so my Naga Myrmidons can be mutated into either green toxic royal-anchor-wielding guys (i.e. Royal Guards), or blue beefy hook-wielding guys (i.e. Whalers) (and maybe even red sinewy scimitar-wielding guys, i.e. Stealthviper)... That might be really cool.

    Hope I can find a use for this. Looking forward to more!

    I wonder does anyone want to make a harpoon-throwing Naga? I would kill for that model!

    About this one. He is pretty good. I am sad that Blizzard never bothered to make different types of Naga units in WoW, instead of reusing the same ones over and over again...
