Reikland Halberdier

Submitted by HerrDave
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Leaning against the wall, one soldier broke the silence with a question. "Sir, are Skaven real?"
Came the reply, "Don't be an idiot. Sigmar's own truth they're just spooks in a story."

Changes
-Updated stand animations
-Changed leg texture
-New Pauldron
- Shrunk portrait, recalculated extents, hopefully fixed the orbital health-bar

    Probably not, I can't think of how a halberd would be used defensively

    If I remember what I read correctly, a halberd's axe blade is angled downwards slightly.

    I can't quite recall at the moment the source, but I do remember the criteria more or less, of what defines the difference between a poleaxe and a halberd.

    I think it was something like:

    • A shaft at least 10 feet in length.
    • A spike at least 1 cubit in length.
    • A spike or hook at the back.
    • An axe blade that is either straight or concave and is angled downwards toward the user.
    I think it also said something about it being a formation weapon being used by heavy troops in tight formation, being used more so as a pike rather than an axe.
    Which kinda makes sense, if you take a good long look at one. If you swung it like an axe, you'd hit the guys either behind you or beside you, which would probably make them not like you very much.
    I figure, how they fought with them is you'd try to pull the other guys out of their formation and pin their halberd with your own so your buddies can stab at their less armoured bits.

    Wonderful!
    The only thing that confused me a bit is that he has armor on his right arm, not on his left - should not it be the other way around?
    Left arm is pushed forward and it would be more logical if it had armor on it because he don't wear a shield.

    You've got me there, I left the pauldron there as a remnant of the greatsword model - I could remove it entirely as a halberdier with heavy armour does seem somewhat out of place.

    What do you think?

    I agree. They should be as flamboyant, but less armoured.

    I agree it wold be better to remove them, or make it smaller. Maybe something like this? Empire Halberdier - Google Search:

    The conversation wasn't about hats, it was about the shoulder armor so I'm pretty sure everyone would prefer the decorated hat instead of helm.

    I think that two small pauldrons is better.
    Or something like this on left arm, maybe: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/4e/00/74/4e0074376924acc9fc4f0099daaa7af8.jpg

    Good job, I like it. Everything looks good, only textures on his legs looks a little strange for me.
