    It's damn good this one. I just don't like the stand ready anim, it looks strange on him.

    Why does he have wings on his head? Is this inspired by Asterix and Obelix?

    Oh, thought the model was inspired by this
    http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2013/150/c/2/warriors_of_viking_by_ya_yun-d64zoba.jpg

    The guy in the middle has a similar build and his axe looks similar too. ;D

    Although, in norse mythology, Thor were depicted without a helmet nine out of ten times.
    When he had a helmet, he looked more like this. http://mikkeller.dk/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/viking.jpg.

    But he also didn't have a normal hammer. http://www.thorbyg.dk/billede/thorshammer.png
    (That's the metal part of the hammer, before it being attached to a staff. )

    He also had two goats and a chariot and two servants to steer the thing while he K.Oed giants in the sky with his hammer.
    I never did get why Americans kept adding wings to the viking helmets when depicting gods. XD

    Here we go! These are the models that I like! This is really nice.
    Could be used for vikings maybe, or dwarves.

    Ooh... Another good one from -Grendel. Good to see you trying something new rather than another skeleton (though those are admittedly awexome). : )

    Excellent mesh, great wrapping (even better for use of in-game's only), and while the Beastmaster-animations are, I'll admit, beginning to feel like a bit overused (at least from you)... It's still not as bad as Demon Hunter/Blademaster anims. xD

    I really like the overall feel of power & towering stormy manhood this guy exudes, accentuated by the little touches on his clothes, the wings on his head, his stormy SFX eyes... Neat hammer (THAT'S AN AXE, good job Kyrbi0...) Axe with cool runic-swirlies, good spell SFX.

    I know you were practicing human proportions & trying to avoid clipping & such, and I believe you succeeded just fine in that department... But I'm a little concerned if you intended for it to be a Dwarf. As a bulky barbarian-y Human(oid), definitely (in fact, a name like "Storm Thrasher" and those cool eyes really make me think "Mountain/Storm/Cloud Giant"; consider a texture swap with the Avatar-ed Mountain King or something else blue/stony for that effect.). But as a Dwarf?... I'm afraid the proportions are just a bit off for that, in my opinion (need to see it in-game, though...). Much shorter & stockier, though, is the idea.

    Aside from that, though, it's another great model. : )

    I don't know too much about models, except using them, but that design is wickedly beautiful! *SCN throws a 5/5 at you*
