    Awesome! But if it won't mess up the model, could you add the red eyes? All orcs back then had red eyes Great work though!

    Yea, add some team color to it. Wait, what time period are you making this blackrock orc for? Is it for the orcs under Doomhammer in the 2nd war or the orcs in WOW under Rend Blackhand. If it's for Rend's warriors, than you should give the orc gray skin. Oh, and are you going to do grunts for all the orc clans? If you have the old Warcraft 2 manual you will find a picture of a Twilights Hammer Clan Orc in it, just to let you know if you decide to do one for that clan.

    Sure, I'm going to make red eyes for all of those who drank Mannoroth's blood.

    Also add the Flag from the Fel-Blademaster, since thats the
    Blackrock-banner. I dont mean he should wear the whole flag, just
    use that texture for a cape or maybe some sort of shield (shield
    just because "Blackrock" [i know that blackrock is a mountain]
    sounds pretty solid and it would show differences in every clans
    favored tactics)

    The models on the first post look great!

    I can't say the same for Kargath Bladefist... he's... forced, if you get what I mean. Few things about him: the beard is bad (low-res?), it would be best done like Thrall's. The glow makes it impossible for the model to be used as a unit (well, not really, but it always looks bad, doesn't it?). If you could remove it and add a decay animation, you would open a lot of other uses for the model. And what's that huge brown thing behind his head? A coat? If yes, then you should perhaps lower it's size, it looks kinda ridiculous.

    Good work on the Warsong Grunt. So you're really creating a grunt for EVERY clan?

    Hmm, I don't really understand why you would wanna remove the glow and add a decay animation, seeing as he's a hero unit?
    Yeah, the beard could be better. It was one of the first skins where I really tried to use freehand as much as possible, so the quality of the skin isn't the best.

    He might be a hero unit, but I could always pick it to make it a different character, or I could just want to use it as a unit... Removing the glow and adding a decay animation (the dissipate one can remain, by the way) opens up a few doors, that's all I'm saying. I understand the purpose of the model is to be used on a hero.

    Keep up the good work!

    No, what you should do is give him both Decay and Dissipate anims, but keep the Hero Glow.
    Why? Because it's much easier to remove hero glow then to add it correctly (I say "correctly" because it's pretty easy to add hero glow, but you can't get it on the weapons as easily, and it looks worse in-game then if it was originally put on the model.)

    Just put all the hero glow on one geoset and people can delete it at their leisure.

    Yay, Those grunts are fucking awesome, the Warsong Grunt is my favourite, but the ner'zhul model is by far one of the most outstanding orcs i've seen.

    Keep It up :thumbs_up:

    Also I'd like to see these orcs, don't know who they are, but they are pretty awesome.

    @Gyrosphinx, the first one is a random fel orc and the second is a raider, they aren't any special characters. At least that's not original artwork of any special character, rather.
