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.

    No, some sources say Thor needed special gauntlets to wield Mjolnir his hammer.

    Odin?

    Why don't you create Odin from the archmage or furion? :p Or maybe from Kael and change his balls of fire around him to the birds, hugin and munin =) Wouldn't be very much to change there either, atleast not as far as i can see :p
    And Thankyou for finally doing a real thor without the things on his helmet :D
    Also, the roman or greece gods is a great soure of inspiration for cool models =)

    P.S. I'm sooo glad you remembered the belt!

    Yes and a normal person trying to wield it without the gauntlets would die.

    I couldn't stop from commenting flaming troll's picture of a helmet a few pages ago... These are not horns, these are bananas! :) Don't show here reconstructors' stuff please :) We did better things.

    To Olof: great model, if I ever need a Thor for my map, I know where to take it :).
    5/5

    you should make more marvel characters like this. like i havent seen any models of the popular marvel characters like spiderman, venom, batman, superman (amazingly). so u should really make some more or atleast give me a tutorial of how to make skins and stuff cuz i still havent for that down. well nice model!

    and i im pretty sure it is a marvel character...

    Your ignorance amazes me... and please don't double post. Visit the tutorial forum if you want to learn how to skin and/or model.

    And I'm pretty sure Dionesiist is right, because Thor is originally from the Norse mythologies.
    Marvel just took the character's concept and made a superhero of him.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thor
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thor_(Marvel_Comics)

    In conclusion, the thundergod and the superhero are NOT the same person.
    Olof created a model of the thundergod, not the superhero.

    Yes, Marvel took and butchered the original Thor from Norse mythology.
