Orc Slinger

Submitted by z00rtaz
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
More orcs! Not a request this time.

What happens to blademasters once they go senile and too old to chop enemies with a giant sword? The orcs give the poor sods a barrel of pebbles and an old sling to twirl and swing like there's no tomorrow.

Intended as a ranged unit.

(Also learned that if the blend between hair and face is super crap, you can hide it with a headband.)

Update 1: Swapped the bag out with an actual sling.

    Orc logic: this guy is no longer trust worthy with a sword, we will give him a long range weapon that has great potential for throwing rocks in random directions, #whatcouldgowrong?

    It looks nice, and it is a neat idea i don't recall seeing allot of

    Nice, I think it's the first WC3 slinger I see. Do I have permission to have someone edit him to a human for my Ancient Empires map?

    I could rig the human version myself, would you want me to. I've looked at your project, do you have a model that you wish to be edited into a slinger? PM me if such is the case. If you want Fingolfin to do it, he -absoulutely- has my permission, sort of an idol of mine.

    I forgot to mention, but if you're using this model, base it on the grunt and give him a long "attack 1-cooldown time" (2.1 seconds or so), makes the whole twirling animation look much better.

    There's also a projectile matching the slinger (since there's none matching in the game files) here.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for "missing links"; models that fill in a Theme or Role that Warcraft doesn't. And not only does this fill the "basic Orc ranged unit" box that Trolls try to fill in the in-game Horde, but it also fills the "unit with Sling" box that, so far, is completely nonexistent.

    Nice job. Very simple and a bit wonky, but nice job.

    A suggestion; an Attack 2 animation that swings from a different angle?

    Also the spell anim could be throwing something huge.
