Petard

Submitted by The_Silent
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
"Hoisted by his own petard!"

You roll this thing up to a gate, and detonate the charge placed in the bell shaped "muzzle" and blow the gate and the petard up.

Added an attack animation for "usefulness", even though a petard is pretty much a "one-shot" melee cannon. But who knows, maybe someone wants a weird bell shaped cannon.

Hand-made animations for once, but the particle emitters is shamefully stolen from the WarWagon (wc3 vanilla version).

Edit: Added some sound effects to death and attack

A wonderfully simple and well made model. Works in-game and performs well.

    hmm.. ya know what would be interesting? if you can make a few anims that have the back facing to front, so horses or vehicles can tow the cannon along. i think 'alternate' stand, walk, death.. and maybe alternate decay

    It looks like a medieval bombard. I like it :)

    It is not a cannon :p

    A petard is a explosive device you roll up to a gate, and then blow up. Kinda like the orcs in lords of the rings. Except on wheels in this case.

    I'm sure the Cannon Ball missile already in game will suffice
