Stromgarde Units

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
So I got possessed by the weird skinning demon that occasionally makes me just make do some texturing out of the blue. So for once I actually did enough of it to warrant an upload and contain enough free hand. The majority of the Spear Thrower and Knight are free hand other than the tabards which are CnP.

Also Stromgarde is one of the coolest Human Kingdoms so I thought I'd contribute by giving them unit skins which contain Team Colour.

Also if you want separate models for them then just download the models in these links:
Stromgarde Spear Thrower Separate Model
Stromgarde Knight Separate Model
Stromgarde Priest Separate Model
Stromgarde Paladin Separate Model
Stromgarde Hydromancer Separate Model

The texture paths for the models are just: "StromgardeKnight.blp", "StromgardePriest.blp", "StromgardeSpearThrower.blp", "StromgardeHydro.blp" and "StromgardePaladin.blp".

Update 1: Darkened the gloves of the Spear Thrower.

Update 2: Added Stromgarde Priest

Update 3: Re-drawn the Knight skin to make it fit in better with Cloud Wolf's Galen Trollbane skin and Ujimasa Hojo's re-wraps using said skin. To be clear it's still my free-hand just re-drawn using his colour pallet for inspiration.

Update 4: Re-drawn the Spearman to fit in better with CW's textures.

Update 5: Added Paladin and Hydromancer Skin and Icons.

Knight looks cool, but that "units"... that white glows look weird. And do you will make Footman too?
You mean the White Gloves? Yeah I might change them.

Also I don't need to make a Footman, Ujimasa Hojo has already made one and Paladinjst also made another Footman skin from WoW textures:

nice next skins, but i think, that paladin and archamge toge should maybe be lighter to be close to that stormgarde colors, in case of tabard of spearthrower it should be lighter definitely... And btw, about your priest - looks cool, but I think that golden do not look good on stromgarde. I think that you should turn it to light grey gold, or silver or grey. Just my oponion
And btw again

All the skins use the same colour pallet other than the Spearman for the tabard, however I think it's nice to have a bit of variation otherwise they all look too samey and indistinguishable :)

I also used gold since it's the main colour of the League of Arathor so thought it was fitting and pretty distinct from the usual reds, oranges and pinks of the other skins.

I'm not making my own Footman skin because it would look virtually the same as the Ujimasa Hojo one. I used CloudWolf's colour pallet as inspiration for my skins therefore my own Footman skin would look more or less too similar to something that already exists. So why make two of the same thing? I'd rather make skins for units that don't have one at all like the ones above which I have done :)
 
Is it me or it feels somewhat Scarlet Crusade?
Well red is the colour of both the scarlet Crusade and Stromgarde so there's bound to be some similarities :) however the main difference is in iconography and symbols used by the factions and on their tabards.
 
Where is that captain model/skin?
The Captain skin is by Paladinjst and is a CnP of the Wow texture with a free hand re-drawn shield therefore it doesn't fulfil the Hives Approval rules. If you want I can send you it tho just remember to credit me and Paladinjst :)

This looks awesome, I don't know how I missed this!

I love the tabards on each of the units, they really sell the consistency in style across each of the units which helps a viewer understand what faction the unit belongs to. The priest skin looks pretty neat as well, I love a good golden sheen on armor and it reminds me alot of some of the armor you can find in classic WoW!

Amazing work as always, I've got to find a way to use these in my project!
