I gotta say, it's people like you that give (Troll) modders like me a hard time. I am bursting at the seams with all sorts of cool Troll models & skins that I simply don't have room to feature in the main race. At first I said "well then, they'll just be cool extras found in the campaign, among enemies", but I'm getting to the point where I'd need an entirely separate techtree for all the new stuff. :<
This skin is simply fantastic. Not only on a conceptual level (turning an Elven Spell Breaker into a Trollish High Priest-dude), but on an aesthetic level as well. And aesthetically, it's not just "good" but it really looks like it'd fit in-game; strong, contrasting colors, lots of good TC use, etc etc etc.
While I could gush about several parts of the model (especially those alpha'd out tusks drawn on both layers so they "stick" through, awfully creative), I must say the majority of the praise should go to the tower shield. See, the shield on this unit is it's most prominent & important feature; getting it drawn right is really important, as it's a big part of this unit's profile & silhouette. So with such a great, Trollish tower shield on; the great TC swatches & carvings, the jewel-things, the great big gold trims, the excellent planks of wood... He can't help but be awexome.
Again, super-excellent, and very deserving of the DC. My only qualms are basically things that can't be helped with a skin... But to be honest, as bad as I am at modeling, I feel the need to offer my help in making this guy seriously Trollish. I think that will take this model up to 11.
The tusks could be geomerged in, the hair could be messed around with, the face-plate, IMO, should definitely be changed somehow (the big swoopy 'wings' are just so Elvish); the arm's should be bare IMO (like, pauldrons & bracers, but no big flappy purple fabric), and... Yeah. Probably a bit of a Trollish hunch as well (I couldn't do that).
This needs to happen.
Anyway, sick texture man. Practice does indeed make perfect.
