TrollBoarRiderVI

Submitted by Uncle Fester
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is another ill-reputed, quite feared Troll unit. A brutal, infamous Troll Warrior Mounting a fiercy boar. The Boar Riders, or nicknamed ''Hoggers'' are the most feared Troll cavalry after the Shark Riders and battle turtles. Unlike the raptor rider or orcish wolf riders, the ''Hoggers'' don't only raid and feast on cattle. They also let their ever-hungry mounts feast and ruin crops and fields as well, which makes them to terrible raiders. Unlike shark or raptor riders, boar riders occur at almost any continent of Azeroth without having trouble with cold weather or icy waters. The cold-blooded raptors can't operate that well in cold places, unlike the well-fitted boars. Troll Boar Riders are wandering & raiding at many places. Another difference is their lack of belonging to a tribe or following certain cults. They're just live like free maurodeurs in almost any place. They're commonly used as mercenaries, whereas they've been seen in Outland as well.
This is the standard boar rider, a slightly armored Troll with a halberd and a war-painted boar. It's a pretty fast moving, medium armored cavalry unit, that is best used for pillaging villages, raiding unguarded bases and for destroying enemy concentrations in forests, where huge formations are next to impossible. Boars are also considerably heavier-built than wolves, which makes them more resistant and allows stampeding enemy infantry, even pikemen with lower risks than usual cavalry. Only a handfull of ground units can take them down.

Feel free to use it in any way you want! Have fun with it! :wink:

EDIT 1: my thanks to Misha's good moderation, which made me aware of a few minor flaws that somehow escaped me when uploading this model first. Now the problems have been solved: the rider's legs don't clip into the boar's legs now. They look like moving behind the boar's front legs now. Also fixed the wrong assigned vertices on the first pair of the boar's tusks. :wink:

    Well, the weapon is only handed in attack 1 as one handed, in attack 2 the rider uses both hands to strike with it. Why to HQ? :goblin_jawdrop: The rider has enough armor stuff added to look better :vw_unimpressed:

    Nop, it's the QuillBeast from Warcraft 3 TFT (the summon of the beast master). :wink: Even if it would be from WoW, it contains enough changes to be ''legal''. :wink:

    I love it! Great job on this, Fester. I'm glad you didn't just stick the unit on the boar in normal standing animation like many people do, with its legs inside.

    5/5.

    The screenshot doesn't do this model justice! It looks amazing in the editor, and the use of wolf rider animations is splendid. Also, the warpaint gives a really cool impression when seen from a bird's-eye view (usually the most important perspective).

    5/5 :thumbs_up:

    I thought you wasn't allowed to use WoW models, but otherwise great job.

    thx :ogre_hurrhurr:

    Actually, that rule changed. You are allowed to use WoW models now, but they have to be modified (i.e. contain enough changes and not simply be converted into WC3 models). That aside, what made you say that? :vw_wtf: This model is made out of WC 3 ingame stuff only. If you mean the boar, it's the Beastmaster's (Rexxar's) summoned minion. :wink:
