    kinda hard. SC2 models use a different model format. First, there needs to be a converter.

    Sorry its impossible, the copywrite on the model prevents it from being ported and used outside of the game Starcraft II. As such doing so would violate many international and local laws.

    Probably the same reason so many people wanted WoW models in Wc3 maps, they look "badass" even though they don't match the rest of the game.

    They do not look that badass on low, which is what a WC3 version would have to be due to the lack of features like only 1 texture map supported.

    However the reason they can not be exported is not because it is impossible to do, it is just impossible due to legality reasons. Giving WC3 people free axcess to models that SC2 players had to pay to have axcess to is piracy, which is illegal.

    Its just like why WC3 models can not be used in SC2.

    Ofcourse if blizzard says we can do it, it is no longer illegal (some WoW icons in WC3) however I highly doubt they will do that for ported SC2 models to wc3, afterall they did not even do it for WoW models to WC3.
