Tidal Wyrm (Tidal Guardian)

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Model:
This is basically an edit of Onix by Zerox and Lord_T. I couldn't get their permission to edit it since both of them haven't been active for a long time. So, it is entirely within moderator's discretion whether this will be allowed.

The mesh is obviously the standard Tidal Guardian with a few minor modifications (tapering tail, eyelids).

Most of the animations were made by Lord_T and some of them were made or edited by me, but since I'm not much of an expert on animating a few turned out kinda derpy.

I made two new stand animations; made a corpse geoset for the decay animations; made a portrait animation and added a proper portrait backdrop; made a set of swim animations; made submerge animations out of the existing burrow animations; added attachment points, blood splats and a collision sphere.

I also made a new walk animation and made the old one into some kind of Easter egg by renaming it to 'Walk Ready'; now it is used instead of 'Walk' while the unit is chasing a fleeing target.

I wanted the Wyrm to match the Tidal Guardian building, so I made a new attack animation out of the original Stand 2 animation by making the movement a bit faster and more aggressive (showing teeth, distending neck). The original melee attack animation (in which the Wyrm attacks with its nasal horn) is still there ('Attack Two') in case anyone needs it.
