Runestone_WCII

This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
I simply used a pre-existing Resurrection Stone SE and shaped it into WarCraft III's Runestone. I figured that someone out there would like to have it.
I've edited both skins for the reshaped model, as well as removed the surrounding grass from around the stone.
Credits to Blizzard for the original meshes and textures. To be honest, I've always wanted a Runestone for WarCraft III Classic, but I couldn't find one anywhere. It's why I made this.

For those who have other ideas for the Runestone model, tell me what I should do or you may freely edit this model, as you see fit. All I ask for is credit.

NOTE: The Death animation is just the Stand Work, but then Blizzard never intended to destroy the Resurrection Stones. No worries, updates will sure come.
I plan for another model that features a true Death animation.

Update:
1.) I removed both glyphs from behind the Elven Runestone, so you're left with just the other two at the front. Further Texturing will follow.
2.) I also moved a vertices behind the runestone to smooth out the edge, so it's conical.

Useful to some people, but quite too simple edit.

I like it, but I want to love this. Not only is the texture really stretched on the sides, but the proportions seem rather off. Just kinda misshapen? Ah dannae.

Is there something about the Monolith stones that doesn't serve your purpose? Do the ones from Wc2 actually look like that somehow (pics plox)?

The Monoliths were only used for two things: for Resurrection Stones for Rexxar and his fellow heroes to revive when they die, and for the map called "Monolith," where Creep units use "Monolith Buildings" for Town Halls and Farms.
As for the textures and proportions, I'll figure something out.
