    Neat, looks like there's a shitload of clipping in the animations though.

    they're minimal as long as you're in in-game view. also, this mother effer needs an icon.

    too much clipping, and one of his back legs is not rigged right >_> I'd say it needs a lot of adjusting

    the only clipping i see is the leg armor clipping which is not noticeable unless you zoom in on his crotch in-game. and i'll fix that mis-rigged vertex on his leg right away.

    There is no arbalest involved yet the scything melee attack is nice.
    Hard to use without replacing Crypt Lord since many parts have same textures and are re-shaped from the original as is.
    SC2 zerg queen lookalike unit, if retextured hard enough can pass as an qiraji unit/hero.

    I must say, you've done a spectacular job with the model!

    Splendid work indeed!

    The clipping is minor and barely noticeable, unless you specifically look for it. So I must request that those seeking to pounce on his plums so hard they burst out of his ears tone it back a bit.

    Its not remotely as bad as other models I've seen get through with far more glaring errors.

    As I can't give a 4.8/5, I'll settle for giving you a 5/5

    Loving the model, but I have to agree on the clipping issue. It's not really noticeable from above, but it can be pretty jarring considering the size of both the arms and forelegs.

    Maybe making the legs a bit shorter and stockier would do? It could also make the unit look more, shall we say, stable.

    Well, an arbalest is basically a heavy crossbow. I think it would make more sense if the Nerubian fired some sort of a bolt-like projectile. But, I suppose it's your model so you can name it whatever you want. That having been said, I'd like to hear a little bit of lore if you don't mind me putting it out there. What exactly is an "Arbalest" and what is their role in Nerubian society/warfare? :)
