NightelfOwlRanger

Submitted by Uncle Fester
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
Just figuered out that i've no good Night Elf model so far, so i decided to make a new airborne one. I've made already a medium air units for Blood Elves and Undead, so i thought i should make one for Night Elves as well. This is the result: the Nightelf Owl Ranger!

Owl Rangers are medium, fast moving air units, mainly used for escorting heavier assault airbornes like Chimeras and for recognaissance, scouting and spying. Unlike the previously mentioned airbones, the Owl Rangers can perfectly hide themselves, sneak up unaware targets and put them down, as long as they aren't to strong. The major weakness of these aerial flight artists is that they're not armored. This fact makes them easy pray to huge creatures like Frost Wyrms and Dragons, except if they come in huge numbers. The main use is scouting and patrolling the own territory and fly back to the base for giving alert if something's wrong. They're also wonderfull messengers, due to their stealthy abilities and fast movement. Their damage is rather average, not realy something to get excited about.

I've also made a custom missile for it, as the original ballista missile from Reing of Chaos differs a bit.

Feel free to use it in any way you want! Have fun with it! :wink:

EDIT 1: changed the sitting style and fixed a little odd movement issue on the mount's head. :wink:

EDIT 2: fixed some minor flaws and removed the unnecessary helper objects. :wink:

    okay her crotch/hip area looks deformed, you already made the legs too long, and that owl.. i dunno, you should probably try this anew.. did you try combining that upper part with an actual owl? combining animations with this http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/modeling-animation-276/modeling-resource-customized-vertex-editor-220240/ might have a learning curve of a few trials and errors

    Interesting. The rider & mount seem a tad incongruous (giant, low-poly/texture owl, reasonably-higher-poly/texture rider), but it reminds me of the old Beta "flying Priestess of the Moon", so that's cool.

    Does she throw it, like the Wyvern Rider?

    Well, there's nothing stopping you, but if these all get rejected.. it would have been a waste of time. D:

    Not that you really have to worry tho, these shouldn't be rejected:)

    that's true, but it's better to have many models around. Even if most of them are for rejection, the one or other will still pass. :wink:

    I'm more concerned with the illogical rigging you did on the legs Oo they're solid limbs, not bendy krakens like it shows in attack and spell anims

    wonder if you should shift them forward to sit as a person usually would
