11:41, 19th Oct 2015 Misha: Give him proper portrait stand and portrait talk anim, give him a suitable death sound.. maybe lich? Also give his attacks the same attack effort sound like on a deathknight, to have that runeblade feel. then it'll be good...

    Your models looks really useful. Perfect if you want a Lich King that fits more with the overall Warcraft 3 look. I could think of a few uses of this in some campaigns...

    Awsome:D

    Looks pretty cool. Im not a big fan of the glow on the sword though... so much glow going on with the hero glow and that together xD

    I see your point, I'll knock off a few planes or maybe add a frost-trail when he swings the sword.

    As for the dissipate animation, I'm having a bad time with capes at the moment, in a spot of laziness I thought that it'd be strange to have an unholy hero "ascent" after he dies, I think I'll have him fade in black smoke or frosty wind.

    You can just do the Undead Dissapate where the skull (their spirit?) ascends to the sky!

    The Attack 1 looks wierd like I don't know. Maybe it's just me but the second attack anim is awesome, you did a great job with that. I think it needs a custom texture and not just DK's one. Maybe you could make a frostmourne with some more polies, but it's your choice. You always stick to lower the size as much as you can. Nice job you did with the animations. Attack 2 and Spell channel are my favorites.

    You could leave Attack - 1 just the same as the Paladin/Arthas' default one. It's a good animation and it would fit the model. His left hand looks weird and a bit unnatural when he uses Attack - 1 animation.

    Besides that, I'm not sure about the purple plate armor...I don't think the Lich King is too much of a purple fan.

    But I do love the fact that he is team-colored:D
    Maybe you could make his plate armor team-colored?

    Because there weren't enough Lich King models already. Rofl.

    Still, this does have the lowest file size of any lich king model I've seen before, and does look pretty good for its size.

    3/5.

    This is actually pretty good for multiplayer maps that can't take much space, the filesize is perfect.
    I would say though that a few tweaks in the animations and perhaps a more unique "death" and dissipate wouldn't go a miss either.
    Well done again, with simplicity you win the earth, and this is exactly it.

    Looks good!

    But what's this background? This Wrathgate-thing? :p

    Nice Lich King but the helm looks rather odd with the whole body itself.

    Yeah, I've been looking into ways to get it to look more like a WC3 model without compromising the portrait view.

    Any ideas on how to adjust it to look more suiting?

    This is actually pretty good, been wanting a warcraft 3-ish type of Lich King not those WoW kind. The eyes you can probably make them fit the eye holes a bit more and maybe make them glow(?) You could definitely improve the armour a little more to suit with the helm(which doesn't really fit)

    Yes, yes indeed quite an improvement this is, though I once again may suggest a more unique death? Perhaps him falling on his belly rather than back? As I think the Generic Paladin death doesn't fit for the Great Lich King eh?
