Stormwind Footman v2

This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
Footmen are warriors who serve as basic infantry in armies of the human nations. Comprising the bulk of the Alliance army, the footman is the heart of the war machine for elves, humans and dwarves. Fighting in close formation, they use proven tactical methods: Advance slowly with shields raised, then draw swords and close to melee range. The grim, mud-slogging soldier initially appears to be a grizzled veteran, until you get a glimpse of his young face. His weapons and armor look worn, like they were scavenged from a battlefield. Footmen like to travel in small groups and form ranks. They are attuned to formation fighting, and coordinate their attacks. They are capable of bringing down well-armored opponents.


This model is a much updated version of my Stormwind Footman from the Universal Footman Pack. Unlike previous versions it does not use the Captain's bone structure or animations. The design is based on the WoW Stormwind Guard. One of the main design differences from the original footman is the addition of chain mail instead of scale mail, which is justified by the WoW guard's textures clearly showing a full under-layer of chain mail. The pauldrons, helm, sword, and shield are ported from WoW. The rest of the model is from Reforged. The textures were painted in Adobe Substance Painter.



This model was created using the Retera Model Studio. All geosets are from Warcraft 3: Reforged and World of Warcraft. Textures were edited in GIMP and Adobe Substance Painter by Symphoneum. Animations are from the footman. Please credit Symphoneum if used in a project. Feel free to use the model as you see fit and have fun!

I prefer the silhouette of your footman compared to the base game model. Now that could just be the WoW player in me familiarizing with the items, but I just love it. IMO this looks more like the footman from the cinematic. You did a really good job with the placement of the TC, too. And the chain mail tops it all off.

Lol I agree, it is weird. I really had to do this one justice but I’ve got plans for an alternate shield as well.
