    A few criticisms first:
    1. I don't like the blade texture, never have. But that's just personal preference :p
    2. For a basic unit model, this packs a lot of polys. And not in the mesh, but remember every particle is 2 polys.
    Now for the positive sides:
    Looks like you baked it with pure concentrated badassness. I don't think I've seen a cooler model on the site.. Well, maybe a few that meet this, but this definitely ranks up there. The mesh, especially the spikes, are really cool, and the staff looks awesome.

    The body looks a bit boring. The shape, rather.. Not the skin. Try adding in details like little pouches or something along his waste or one of those weird chestplates Mannaroth has. =P

    It is supposed to be a skeleton. Too much armour would make people wonder if HappyTauren is off his mind. I liked the little pouches part but can one really see them through all that fire?
    BTW, I repeat what I said, add fire to the weapons.

    Jesus Holy Fuck HT. This is liquid awesome. Only recommendation, as said above, make the weapons on fire too.

    How the hell did you optimize it that much? It can't just be geoset merges is it?

    You just have to know LOTS about .mdl code to do this, what you can edit without losing quality, then using squisher. Anyway, The mesh is 100% scratch made, however, I DID use wc3 skeleton head as reference. I didnt want to set weapons on fire, because they are not part of his body, and it is his body that is supposed to flame. I know it makes very little sense, but that is just the way I wanted to do it xP
