"I've got friends on the other side"

A troll spellcaster unit designed for my Troll Campaign.
Mesh is scratch-made, animations - a mix of in-game and scratch-made. Uses in-game textures.
Includes the main model, portrait, custom missile, and summonable totem.

This was a bottom-up design - I originally envisioned the unit's abilities and built the model accordingly.
When the Bonecaster dies, she leaves behind a Totem that attacks enemies for a certain duration.
The Totem's birth animation is slightly delayed so as to match the Bonecaster's death animation in a "whenever unit dies - create unit" trigger.

The Bonecaster channels a storm of vengeful spirits, dealing damage to enemies around her (an activated/triggered ability based on Phoenix Fire)

A very neatly made model with lots of detail and amazingly well made wrap and effects. Awesome job!

The massive nose is really weird - but I like literally everything else about this. Nice choice of animations, really cool totem too. :)

A little hard to tell that this is a female, too - hard to work with the masculine textures. I don't know though, I think maybe the face can be tinkered with a bit more to look more feminine.

like that, when I think it's a man, when I read and download it to see it, I know it is a woman and I have to zoom in on something that needs to be big to see it is too flat to see women))).

very cool model. animations and everything. A few minor possible improvements -

  • I like the idea of face variation (trying to make something that doesn't just look like the same exact troll model with extra doodads) but that weird snout/beak thing makes it look like a different race than warcraft trolls. looks like somekind of bird/lizard person.
  • I also think it is difficult to tell this is supposed to be a female. don't know why, it does seem to have breasts.
  • it looks a little unnatural to be swinging arms so far back and forth while running, while taking such small steps (being constrained by the skirt and all).

Great work!!! As Chucky said he doesn't resemble a troll (at least Warcraft's trolls) but it's a great work nonetheless. 20/10 great work!!!
