I... came

Nice work Wabbajack but once again I will like to ask you for some changes.

Axetrower: The armor is fantasic but could you give him a different hair style? Maybe the typical troll one and if possible the same color the savage has. Oh and I almost forgot no way he can hold two axes can't he?

Berseker: Awesome if you could give him a different hair color I would aprecciate it, but besides that is awesome.

Bat rider: Perfect but well, can you remove the mask? XD

The rest is perfect!

Wabbajack 02-27-2009 07:04 PM

I will make the changes tommorow, and i would appriciate all suggestions how i could improve them^^


Vindicator, Ranger, Hawkstrider Cavalry, Magister, Warmage, Unicorn Rider

Wulfang 02-27-2009 07:18 PM

All I have to say is:

Footman: Good
Archer: Good
Cavalry: Good, but could you give him a lance like in WC3?
Mage and Priest: Switch them - Mage should be the blue robed one but with shoulderpads, while Priest should be the white robed one without shoulderpads, but probably with something on her head, like those priest-like headbands or even a hood.

Mark_Romaneck 02-27-2009 10:36 PM

Footman: Nothing to complain, he looks like what I would expect from an angry peasant mob
Archer: Perhaps my favorite, He looks exactly like a peasant archer would look like
Merchant: A horsemen with a hammer is kinda... silly to me, The cavalry is composed of wealthy humans (or elves) that afforded their riders while the armor set is fitting, they need a ridiculous hat a la sally whitmane (to show that they are wealthy, but not warriors per se) and perhaps an axe or a spear instead of the hammer
Warlock: Good, but please make it a girl... theyre gona think were gay, make her slutish dark maybe XD
Kobold rabble: DURR I WANTZ PLATE AND THE ASHBRUNGER! (theyre ok)
Gnoll Bruisers: Aye they fit
Gnoll Poachers: I only would like to see them with their crossbow now

All of mine are awesome except that I'd like the Magi to be male so they can more easily be distinguished from the Hareveim. Hareveim, on the other hand, prefer blue and keep their bodies covered (I'd imagine they might even be celibate).

Here's one from Blood and Light: (The orb is just there for show but the knife is important, it's one of their tools to the trade)

You can have them wear the Dalaran tabard, but I'd prefer if the blue theme colouring of their goddess was present.

Wabbajack 02-28-2009 07:18 AM

Changes done^^

Kerrah 02-28-2009 07:19 AM

Yay. Mucho gracias.

Timolas 02-28-2009 07:28 AM

Wow Wabbajack. You are now one of my top favourite people on this board and I love you.

I agree Wabbajack, you understoond exactly what I wanted.

Xarthat 02-28-2009 09:47 AM

Mounts!!! :)

Everything's great now. Isn't there anything that could look like a sling in slinger's hand?

Ashenmoon 02-28-2009 10:36 AM

Impressive effort - but shouldn't the Cavalry-units be, uh, sitting on horses?

And to Timolas; you really plan on keeping all these different units around? It'll be quite a bit to juggle around, I'd think.

Most them are different just in name Ashen.

Wabbajack 02-28-2009 10:53 AM

You can't see the riders very good on the mounts, but i could make seperate pictures of them^^

Lon-ami 02-28-2009 10:53 AM

Good work here, man ;).

Some of the "custom units" are really cool.

This will be a good battle, I see :D.

Wabbajack 02-28-2009 04:19 PM

Anyone who wants a picture of his faction leader should post a raw description^^

Timolas 02-28-2009 04:31 PM

Well since I'm the metaphorical god of the risk I don't have a faction leader, but if you like you can create one or two faction leaders of the NPC factions I am instead controlling.

Druids of Caer Darrow - Fenthelan, Cloudcaller's Heir
The leader of the druids of Caer Darrow, and a former apprentice of the night elf druid Aeleas Cloudcaller, who founded the Druids after crossing over to the Eastern Kingdoms with Dath'Remar and his Highborne.
Garbed as a druid would be.

Rebel Council of Kirin Mora - Archmage Grigori Dosantos
Formerly a member of the Council of Six before it was dissolved by Javali. He disagreed with the change and used the Lightist fanatics to his own ends to attempt to reclaim his seat in Dalaran.
Wears the typical Dalaran wizard's robes, is middle-aged and likes to make himself stand out in a crowd due to his pride.

Azure Church of Zinine - General Mordred
The gruff and ambitious Mordred is the pagan general of Gilneas, a former veteran of conflicts out of the country and a firm believer in his faith. He hopes to ensure that Gilneas becomes fully pagan.
Black haired, mean and powerful. Give him some plate.


Admiral Janus
Competitor for the seat of Admiral of Kul Tiras. Former friend of the current lord of the country.
Although generally wearing green, green cape etc, make him distinguishable from normal Tirasian soldiers. He's a rebel after all. Give him his own tabard.

Wabbajack 02-28-2009 05:51 PM

Fenthelan, Dosantos, Mordred and Janus

Zula 02-28-2009 06:25 PM

Looking nice as always Wabbajack. I will post my description of my commander soon. Don't mind if I suggest some pieces of armor myseff? Don't you?

Wabbajack 02-28-2009 06:27 PM

Suggestions make it easier to make them how you want them^^

Zula 02-28-2009 07:24 PM

Warlord Jin'thek: Jin'thek is the current chief of the amani tribe, he has recently arised to power with the promises of glory and revenge.His father was former the former Chieftan until he was assassinated by a enemy tribe when he was quite young.

He was raised by his mother, a Zandalar emmisary to the tribe, so he was educated both as a Zandalar and a Amani giving him the best and the worse of both tribes.

Well I would like him to wear this things following things





The rest is up to you to decide, I mean legs, belt, hands. The only thing I will ask you is that what you choose somewhat fits with what I requested and don't put anything on his head.
Physically he should look like the savage but with a deep blue hair intsead of green.

PS: And finally just if you have time to do it or you are bored, could you give the bat riders this helm? Just if you feel like it eh don't take it like a compromise, you have done enough already.

Wabbajack 02-28-2009 07:47 PM

The boots don't show on troll feets at all. And I made two versions, one normal forest-troll and one version which reflects his zandalar blood^^

Here ya' go, Lord Admiral Thaumas Proudmoore. He uses his staff to shoot spells at enemies from the distance, while if enemy gets too close, he melees with his blade.

And you can make Phorcys (his divine father) look like a Sea Vrykul.

Perfect job I like what I see but just a simple request, didn't the player troll model had a skin that was green and resembled the forest troll skin? If so could you use that skin intsead please?
