Uruk Hai Pikeman

Submitted by Fingolfin
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Time for some isengard can-openers!

Last but not least in the uruk series, the pikeman. There was some discussion when i released my sindar models about how long the pike could be without causing troubles with attack ranges in warcraft. With this model i made a kind of compromise, his pike is pretty long, but in the attack animation, he holds it on the middle (which is not really the proper way to hold a pike). In any case, it looks good and the uruk has nothing to overcompensate for.

Still, this is the model i am least pleased with, primarily because of how the animations look too bouncy when translated through that long weapon. I also did not bother to make a unique death animation for this one, and the "Stand Victory" animation will need some editing (no way he can wave that pike like that), but these are things i might come back to.

But for now, enjoy!


EDIT: Oh, and i forgot to mention, ofcourse all three uruk models use the same textures. Sweet, huh?

EDIT: Made all uruks wider of jaw and shoulders to make them look more manly. Not shown in the screenshot. Also fixed some triangulation to prevent his ass to clip through his loincloth.

    i suspect a berserker is in the works, but more than likely won't use the same textures as the other three :]
    i think these models cover 50% of the BFME Uruk-Hai race, anyway ^^

    Yeah, i want to make the berserker too, although that will take some further time. I hope people will find good use of these. :)

    This is really cool, but I would like to see a full-range attack animation as well, possibly for use with abilities.

    5/5.

    Wonder what's next after all the Uruk-Hai are done.....

    Morgul armies(maybe including The Witch King of Angmar?)? Gondor Armies(including possibly Denethor?)? Moria Armies? Mordor Armies? Haldir? Galadrial? Saruman!?!

    One thing i thought about was to try to complete each "race" as much as i could before moving on, so that they can actually stand by their own and not have to be mixed with wc3 units. The berserker is a given, and i also thought about maybe doing an uruk commander wearing the centurion-style helmet:

    Second, I thought it would be nice with some low-tier elves, so maybe the light sentinel troops which captured the fellowship in lorien? The one who Haldir led:

    i think that's about all there would be to do for uruk-hai, unless you include the multitudes of siege weapons they have in battle for middle earth (ladders? ladders)

    lol, a ladder would not be that hard!!! I could almost make one out of the textures i have. Although an Uruk carrying a ladder would perhaps be appropriate.

    And by the way, I just started working on the berserker, and I tell you, there is no word in elvish, entish or the tounges of men for how awesomely BEEFED he is looking!!! :ogre_datass:

    Don't forget to add your cart with those humongous ballista they used, I wonder why they only used it as a pulley instrument for larger ladders in the movie instead of breaking it through walls like from the game :p

    Give it some bad ass swing sword animation and we got ourselves a one man army :D

    Literally... I loved in BFME how he was his own squadron, while the other uruk hai were put into giant formations when you trained one unit. The berserker was actually equivalent to a whole squadron of troops.

    So I'd just fill up on berserkers until I actually DID have a full army of them, and watch them annihilate everything.

    Main units from each race would be fucking godly. Archers, infantry, pikemen, maybe cavalry. These for Gondor would complete any LOTR themed map. Keep up the amazing work.

    Your elves and uruks are very good stuff! I hope you will release other LOTR models! My next project would be a conversion of wc3 melee into LOTR melee! Good luck and congratulations for your excellent work!
