    I'll be releasing the newer DoC models one at a time as I finish them.

    As a teaser, here's the new Azeroth Footman, the most likely candidate for first release.

    So wait a sec, John_Drake, I'm just curious. Since you're releasing your models like this, does that mean that DoC is dead? You're not going to continue working on it?

    Ah, great! That's good to hear. ^^

    I assume any significant updates will be over at the DoC hosted project forums in WC3C?

    Yeah, though we'll probably start a thread over here as well once we get things rolling again. I'll be visiting Skullpitter (the other project leader) in about a week, so hopefully that will get us back to work.

    Part of the reason I want to release models one by one as I make them is to help re-motivate me to get things done. I've got a lot of half-finished models, and if I work on making them all release worthy they'll eventually get done, heh.

    Wow. This is something that, as a self-ascribed Archivist of old mods and their ideas, I can really respect.

    However (and I hate to even bring it up like this, as it makes me look rather prideful), I would appreciate at least *some* recognition in regards to Ominous Horizons. I spent many long hours painstakingly copy-pasting almost the entirety of their forum-based discussions, e-mailed everyone I could get a hold of, finally managed to contact the two co-creators, grab the vital stuff (MPQ) & get permission to use, upload & modify it, and wrote up the entire "submission" (took forever to break it up into Zip-pable chunks x/...). Only at the end did they change the submitter to "TiJiL", which I was ok with because it was his work. :p

    I even wrote that juicy little history paragraph about OH that you used, & arranged those guys to take that screenshot. Just sayin'. : ) Again, props for organizing this all for the people & making them aware. Just saying 'credit where credit is due', please. :p Again, kudos & thanks.

    As far as I know, once there was a project on motive Warhammer 40k. The project for a long time is deserted (correct if I am mistaken), and the most part of its models now is in the general(common) access on this site. However some models have not received a wide circulation. Such as: Kasrkin, Vox - Radio(I am sorry if was mistaken in a spelling),Fling'boyz and Flamethrower . If it is possible, I would like to ask to lay out you them in the common access within the framework of this project.

    Thank for given links, however I have already had time to see both this site and this subject. There only images this models, but I has already found where it is possible to receive them (all but Kasrkin). It is all that Chinese site bbs.islra.org about which I mentioned in a subject of project Warhammer Reign of Terror. If it is necessary (and it is possible) I could give the direct link to these resources.

    The link would be fine, however I still need to contact the author for permission.

    As on models bbs.islra.org mentioned by me go as one pack with what already are on hiveworkshop, I have decided to collect models missing here in one archive and upload them is direct in this subject.

    Couple thoughts I just had:

    1) I was just perusing the topic, and you realized your missing at least 2 major projects & hallmarks of Wc3 Modding... Heart of Storms and The Great Troll War Mod (headed by Dmitry Rommel and TerranUp16, respectively). HoS is 'technically' still in development (*cough* after nearly a half-decade or more?... *cough*), but see #2 below. GTW, on the other hand, is long dead, and had tons of interesting resources & such... I should know. :p

    Anyway, if you wanna format that and insert it into your Compendium, I fully approve. Just make sure to throw my name somewhere; many hours of work & a lot of contacting to get all that stuff. :p Hope people here can enjoy it.


    2) The title of the topic is "projects of old", yet you have some 'current/finished' (Retera's) and 'still in progress' (Dawn of Chaos) stuff. If that's the case:

    2a) Heart of Storms (HoS) is still in production, but it's really, really awexome. I happen to have a lot of documentation (forum archives in Word documents, picture archives, any available models (<- which is almost none; Rommel is infamously tight-gripped and wants things fresh for the mod)), if you'd be interested.

    2b) Can I put my modding stuff up on this topic? I mean, the more people know, the better. And, (haha), my project is so slow as to be dead. :p I totally am & plan on continuing it, but for the purposes of your thread, it won't change much anytime in the immediate future. :p Let me know.

    Anyone is welcome to post their own material in this thread, if it's comprehensive enough I will add it to the front page.

    I take it you are a steward of the GTW materials. Would you believe the original members would be ok with it being added?

    I have not attempted to obtain anything for HoS, however if you would like to post promotional material as you have described I have no issue with that. You do need his permission to post models, textures, icons, sound files, etc.

    I'll keep at this. I appreciate the effort on your part.

    Hum, really? I'll have to think about that; I don't know if it's good/complete enough.

    As much a 'steward' as is possible, I suppose (same with OH). And yes, I believe I have permission to have that posted (I should think so, given it's all up on Wc3C).

    Not a problem. To be honest, this is what I should've done long ago; I've made it my self-ascribed mission (at least in the past) to be the Unofficial Archivist, but mainly for my own purposes. This is good.
