TrollSharkRiderChampion

Submitted by Uncle Fester
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Due to the increasing popularity of my shark rider models, i decided to make Hero of them as well. This is the leader of each shark rider group, the Shark Rider Champion! He wields a terrible trident, and can inflict both physical and magical damage. His attacks deal physical damage, but he can also cast mighty spells. This combination makes him way more dangerous than his war party companions. Sailors and even captains of larger ships are well advised to avoid him as good as possible, coz what makes him more terrible is the combination mentioned above and the fact that he is usually acompanied from other shark riders! He truly is an outspoken nightmare of the seas! I hope you like this model as much as you like the previous ones! Feel free to use it in any way you want (incl. editing it)! Have fun with it!

    Is it possible to make a model, but no mounted? There is a possibility to make just troll shark without a rider? Can it be, Fester?

    you mean a green troll? You must only change the skin for that to the forest Troll's. No need to make a seperate model out of it. :wink:

    Yes, exactly. THat's their war party's leader :wink:

    I thought of that while making it, but i came to the conclusion that the shark can be left unarmored. It's underwater so it's not the primary target anyway. That aside, the shark already has to carry a heavy rider, so adding armor to it would make it look unnaturally strong :vw_sad:

    The idea is pure win but I'd love to see more changes on the rider. Other face, armor etc.

    Could make a troll shark rider chieftain, and he'd get that massive strong ass shark with armor plates on its back, head, and tail (no armor on underbelly of course). Would make the shark a kind of monster, heck, could even put some spikes on it or something.

    They don't really look like your typical shark. Pretty damn creepy-looking if you ask me, they look like something you'd expect to see as a locust underwater monster in Gears of War or something.

    Hello, I like this model and there's already an ''only shark model''.
    Could you make another ''only shark model'' with animations so it goes both under and over the water so you can actually see the model from time to time (animations)

    his idea of the wobbegong shark is pretty good. i think it'll turn out good. and perhaps you can whip out a unit that uses the myrmidon anims?

    I would look a separate model of the shark, but regardless I do like this idea for the troll shark rider.

    unfortunately, there aren't so many troll skins ingames, which makes a variety more difficult. I'm thinking about adding some kind of armor.....you're not the first one who asks me to do so :wink:

    yeah, but i haven't tested the existing one ingames yet. In Magos it's more average, from my point of view. I don't want to put the work and efforts of the other modeler down, but i guess it could be made better.


    lol, i want it to look like a shark, not an insect. But well, armoring the shark a little bit sounds pretty nice, if i find a fitting texture coz i think a thick metal armor won't realy fit with the rest of the model.


    lol. It sounds nice to me, though i must say it won't be that easy. First of all i haven't found any 100% fitting skin yet. Naga myrmidon would rather be my choice for small sharks and eventually fish like tuna. I considered using it as well instead of the Naga Sorceress, but i foud out that it suffered from certain drawbacks. The main drawback is that the tail is way to short compared to the rest of the body, which would mean i'd have a huge troll mounting a baby shark the size of a salmon. That's why i didn't use the myrmidon :wink: if you wish to see more models like this, i'm already working on my next Troll model. It will be an amphibic unit this time. :wink: But rest assured that the other creature will have a different body, so that it will look quite different from the trolls i made so far. :wink:


    yeah, maybe later. :wink:
