Thor the Thundergod

Submitted by olofmoleman
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Yes people, I'm back at Wc3 modding. At least for a while, I have some old projects I want to finish. I still not doing requests though.

Anyway, here's a model I've been wanting to make for ages, but never got around actually making it, Thor, the Thundergod.

Also, incase someone wonders why there aren't any wings or horns on his helmet, this is not the stupid version like the Marvel hero, this is a more accurate Thor how he should look, like any other viking, without shit on his helmet.

Made by Olof Moleman, based on the Paladin model.

Updated:
Made the belt and gauntlets more accurate, made the face and hair completely freehand, changed the colour of the bear skin and fixed some UV issues.

    I agree with Veljkom, it looks more like an unarmored paladin than a god. Add some particles or stuff to make him look more divine...

    Thor... With his trusted goats!

    Which reminds me you should make another model with him on his goats :thumbs_up:

    Oh all things though... why goats?? :confused:

    Hm, seems I forgot about his special belt. That's about the only thing I suppose I could have put more nifty detail on. otherwize it's just a matter of opinion how people think Thor should look.

    Anyway, in my opinion he doesn't need much armour, he's a fucking god. not some puny mortal. And besides basicly the only thing to add to the armour would be chainmail, vikings didn't have plate armour or pouldrons.

    Only foolish people think they know everything, wize know themselves to be ignorant on the whole.

    Also people, stop saying, "make this..." or "you should make this...". I do not do requests!

    Well, what is there to say, simply put: amazingly done, olofmoleman. Could be used as Thor but also as probably any random viking as well, since he does not look to "godlike."

    No, Santa Claus has nothing to do with Thor. It does however have to do with the pagan celebration of midwinter, which was later stolen and warped by the christians.
    today's Santa Claus' influences are mostly from Coca Cola and the Dutch and German celebration Sinter Klaas.

    Pfff, massive filesize and such a small change...
    No offense, but I would never use this in any of my maps, though others might depending on the circumstances.
    2.5/5

    Wow, wereguy, did you even take to time to try and compress it?
    Without any loss of quality, I reduced it to 137kb.

    The blue pants seem odd too. 4/5 from me, Olof.

    Dear olof, I just wanted to tell you that the model itself it very good :D

    But a thing I noticed was his hammer (Mjolnir) is to long, Mjolnir is a short little hammer
    So, just have that in mind and before you do models like this, and please study some norse mythology...

    It's actually not that small of a change, the Paladin UV mapping is horrible took ages to fix it all. If you'd use this skin on the original model it would look ghastly.

    Vikings had bright coloured clothes, so bright blue pants is very logical, vikings also used a lot of green and maroon. Of course they also had uncoloured clothing, like I did on Thor's shirt.

    That is a viking helmet.

    I know, I've done loads of research. Mjölnir is a one handed throwing hammer that always hits it's target and magically flies back to the owner like a boomerang. But the paladin overall shape fitted Thor the most, I can't animate and all the really good animators I trust have either stopped animating or are busy. Thus I decided to simply make Thor's hammer a two handed warhammer, it's not that illogical actually. The only hammers that were actaully used for battle were two handed warhammers aswell, though the vikings did not use these types of weapons. Thor's the only viking I know of who uses a hammer in battle.

    One-handed hammers was used as well, but mostly by Men-At-Arms who took whatever they could find :wink:

    Couldn't you try animation swapping? I believe some of the Mountain Kings animations would look great, especially his Spell Throw animation, and they would work with a onehanded hammer.

    I like that you made the hammer look like the "real" Thor's hammer instead of going for the Marvel Comics Thor's mjollnir.

    But Thors hammer mjölner is a small hammer on all pictures and stuff and he also missed the belt that thor use to become stronger but the helm is good it shall be as it is.
