Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section. Excellent work!

    Note - The model viewer doesn't display the colour changing robe correctly.

    In-game and in the editor, the team-coloured parts of the robe retain their normal colour.

    Gotta love your models, they fit ingame so nicely, no matter the history and franchise. You can go and throw all the models into a map and maybe with an exception here and there they all doesnt feel disconnected.

    The only thng that I dislike about it is the walking animation- I know Saruman isnt made to run around, but in a map it might happen, and that very standard walking circle might turn quite funny. Maybe adding also a faster jogging or some more movement to the hands would help it?

    All of your War of the Ring models are perfect! They are just as good as those in WotR.

    I hope that you will made all the models from that game, because with wc3 you or anyone else can make right everything that is wrong in WotR and make a great RTS game just like WotR only better.

    I like this so much, I would gladly help you with it. I don't know a lot but I'm open for learning.

    You have my support! :D

    Looks great ingame, and the fading chromatic effect is cool. 5/5.

    Excellent work, the model looks very similar to the concept.
    Also, nice effects, you might want to update the description and remove (coming soon) after prison of ice since you added it.
    Edit: Nevermind, description updated.

    The voice of saruman effect is very nice, and you did it only with ingame textures!

    I really have no words how awesome this model is and also the spells effects! It's just like it's totally ripped from the original WOTR game. I love you! You really have a talent for modeling :eek: Keep up the good work! 5/5 Maybe give him Necromancer death sound? It suits more for Saruman and the Druid of the Talon death sound suits better for Gandalf in my opinion.

    I wish people would stop saying that, actually

    I'm in hot water right now because someone legitimately accused me of ripping models

    Eh, we know they arent rips. Many have ingame textures and you can see them slowly updating, the dude who said that just couldnt see the difference.

    At this point he could start ripping models and no one would know the difference.

    Ripping models is not allowed here isn't it?
