Err... no? As I said, I like it. I don't create models a certain way because I couldn't have done it differently; I make conscious design choices based on what I think looks nice. If RoR wants to change it, he's free to do so. 

 

Also if you change your mind so thoroughly within a day, you are either too easily influenced by other people's opinions, or too quick to shower compliments.

The Mirkwood Heroes Thranduil and Legolas have received reskins, both by Mathijs.

Except Legolas face, which looks square, looks nice. I've seen that Thranduil before... Also on what skl have you bound it to?

I've been doing some fixes of the Legolas model, his head is less square now. Thranduil is bounded to The Witch King's Skl from Rotwk.

Legolas also needs better hands and feet.

Yep, such a seemingly simple change makes for a MUCH more appealing unit. Nowadays it's pretty safe to take a bit of liberty with at least heroes, and not have to worry about lag. So higher standards all around! 

 

Which reminds me.. I still have units of my own to "upgrade".

Thye are both awesome!Really epic work by Math and RoR!I loved Legolas and Thranduil Amors from DoS and BoFA and finally someone is doing them justice by using them! :)

IF onle Legis Shoulder oculd become less "edgy" it wil lbe perfect! :)

Well, to be very honest I would have loved to see some more attention and changes to the model and mapping, maybe this is just my issue but we must not be afraid to heavily change the original model or remake it entierly. At least thats what I expect from RoR, specially when he has help from Math (whom is some sort of a conservative one).

Wait, I'm a conservative one? :p

 

The base model was something I threw together rather quickly 3 years ago based on 1 reference of Legolas armor, coming from a toy preview, haha. Of course I could now look at the concept art and make a nicer base model... but it's RoR's now!

That was my point, RoR must update his stuff. He cheats by using 3 year-old models. :flameblast:

Out of context, that last line is fantastic.

I am sure that when he has mroe time he will do some re-work!But it is hard for him since only him and Thrnaduil are working on that and I have almost no skill in modeling :(

I doubt RoR will rework the Legolas model just because Valaquenta's made a comment on it. :p

True, usually my comments are ignored. Only if I blackmail RoR.
