Night Elf Sentinel with triple-bladed glaives

Submitted by Cuore
This bundle is marked as awaiting update. A staff member has requested changes to it before it can be approved.
My envisionment of a lightly armored melee sentinel, along with the typical glaives. Originally thought for cinematics and campaign screens, here I tried to animate it as a unit.

The model uses mostly in-game textures but also requires a custom texture made by me to represent silvery armor decorations.
All animation sequences are free-hand except the Death animation, which was imported and adapted from the Lasher made by Tarrasque .
The portrait is an edited version of the basic Sylvanas's.

Credits to: Tarrasque

Special thanks to the many users who gave me precious feedback and very valuable counsel regarding animation: @Alethos, @Himperion , @FerSZ , @Tauer , and @Direfury in particular.
Thanks to Nightelfbuilder for making an icon!

Updates:
1. changed decorations layer from transparent to blend for better visibility. Thanks to Alethos!
2. due to the duplicated bundling of the custom texture for both unit and portrait models, which uselessly inflated the filesize, the portrait has been incorporated into the unit model. Moreover, the small clipping issue during Walk has been solved. In addition, the TC variant added in a post below among other comments has been updated (https://www.hiveworkshop.com/attachments/sentinellltc-mdx.292155/) (the TC version still needs the custom texture, that can be found in the main bundle, to be imported without "war3mapImported\" to work properly). Finally, optimization allowed for texture filesize reduction, but for those interested in the higher-filesize, older texture, it can be found in the comments below (https://www.hiveworkshop.com/attachments/decorationsa512x512-blp.291827/)
3. solved clipping issue in Stand - 1. Lightly tweaked Attack - 1. Updates extended to the TC version. Thanks @Pr0nogo !
4. reverting to the old, larger filesize texture for now.
5. february, 2019 - thanks to XGM user 8gabriel8 (Пользователь 8gabriel8 - XGM: eXtreme Gamedev & Modmaking) this model can now use a newly optimized decorations texture that spares over 75% of the filesize. Updating the model to use that texture.

Review: A very fine model with animations that would benefit from smoothing them out and generally improving them (although they are okay as they are - I suggest especially comparing the speed and timing with other models and to use that as guidance)....

Please find a way to add PROPER team colouring. Beside that, the model would be ready for approval.

    This one is gorgeous. Can be used as unit and even on the campaign glues too!

    The model is outright gorgeous. The animations are not perfect. At least not from Hive's model viewer.

    Review: A very fine model with animations that would benefit from smoothing them out and generally improving them (although they are okay as they are - I suggest especially comparing the speed and timing with other models and to use that as guidance). One small issue though: the model is really small. Use Matrix Eater to scale it to at least 1.5 of it's original size. It makes it very weird to scale in the editor. Do that and it's approved.

    Thanks for the review. Agreed on all fronts. Animations really could use less clunkiness -this model represents an attempt at learning animations rather than a purposefully complete piece- but unfortunately right now I don't really see myself being able to find the time to smooth them out.
    On the other hand scaling the model to a more reasonable size is very easy and it's been done with the latest update after the review - thank you for the suggestion :) .
