The Lich King

Submitted by Kwaliti
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
There he is, the Lich King himself.

Give credit where credit is due. I'd like to thank everybody for their input and help during the making this model.

P.S. Don't even think about complaining about the poly count -- you're basically supposed to have only one Lich King in your map. The same goes for file size -- If you want a crap texture, feel free to drop the quality.

P.P.S. If you play the Walk animation in Magos, it will glitch near the right shoulder. Ignore it. In-game there's no glitch.

THIS IS FOR ALL THOSE NAY-SAYERS: THIS IS NOT A WOW MODEL. NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY, YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROVE YOUR STATEMENT. I CAN PROVIDE ~10 WIP FILES AND WILL ENJOY CRUSHING YOUR CLAIMS TO DUST.

Just saving myself time to reply to all those worthless posts.

    Wow models is not allowed on hive, and i think that still stay the same even if it is modified or not. The rule about wow models is very strict..
    hive does not allow wow models, and probably never will.

    Exported meshes are not allowed. Neither is exported or copy pasta textures but you can make a model look exactly how much as you want like a wow model as long as it is custom made.

    That rule does not count with wow models if im not wrong.
    Becouse hive is very, VERY strict about wow models around here, you could get banned easily if you upload many of them. Not even maps containing wow models is allowed here, so why would a few edits on a wow model be allowed?
    In you example, you said that it would get accepted even if the helmet was from wow, but i dont think thats right, becouse that would be like taking any other entire helmet models from the game, and that is not allowed.
    So if im not wrong, that would be rejected becouse it is still a part of a wow model.

    But in this case it is not a wow model we are talking about, this lich king model is created by a member here on the site, and im pretty sure he does not want us to ruin this place with off-topics, so yeah, im done with this for now.

    Really?
    I was told that your not allowed to take models out from wow, at all.
    I mean, if you just take a helmet out of wow it would be rejected, right?
    So if you just take lich kings helm from him, wouldent that be the same thing? or does it magically allow you to use it here?
    Its like, your not allowed to take a weapon from wow, but your allowed to take a weapon that is attached to a unit... To me all this makes no sense at all...

    As far as I know, we are allowed to use specific parts of those (though I'm not 100% sure). On one of these nerub models, Jigrael states that the leg mesh etc was taken from the WoW Tarantula.

    You can have WoW models in your map. Pyrite's adventure has a Bronze dragon from wow. Molten Core has WoW models in it, and there is a few other smaller maps that have wow models in it.

    An update:

    -Changed Frostmourne
    -Size unfortunately raised by ~50kb. You can go ahead and drop the quality on the textures if you really need to squish the model.

    If you can't see the new preview picture, clear your browser cache.

    This is a WOW model. I am informing the authorities.

    Just kidding. Very good work. Someone on your other thread suggested you make a version with a helmet. Go post him this link and say you made it just for him lol.

    guys, please drop the wow model talk . It does not belong under this thread :>

    oh and I'm happy that you created your own texture for frostmourne now since the old one did not matched your style :)

    You have already made 2 textures for this model you could include a custom drawn frostmourne along with the helmet texture :p as it is already above multiplayer map space it doesn't matter much how much space it takes up. I would not use such a huge file for anything but a campaign.

    Perhpas you fucks should stop hounding the guy?

    This is a work of art born from a hobby, if he wants more critisism then he can ask for it.

    It is a great piece, and i look foward to any changes or new projects you may bring to the hive. Or even starcraft 2.
