Hi, as you know, my current project is the dale infantry. And I'm glad to annouce you that the normal texture and model are done (for swordmen).
Some details:

- Model by EA (ruyeobnr_skn) edited by me
- Skin by me, from sratch and totaly hand drawned, except the face.
- Shield by me totaly from scratch (model and texture). (I apologize to RA to have borrowed their idea, if there is a problem, tell me it.) ( 08/07/06 it's just a wip, the new is coming ;) )
- Unwrap UVW largely edited by me.
- My first model made with 3dsmax :p
- Binding by me.......

Ok some pictures:

You appear to be improving rapidly, good work.

I suggest coming up with your own shield design though.

Wow! That's amazing! That owns my Men of Dale anyday! (Which I will put up soonish...maybe...possibly) I really like how it's done, the color scheme and design of the armor is sooooo cool! Way better than EA's "Men of Dale" (cough cough Yeomen with badass arrows) Nice Job

I'm not smoking anything, I'm just Japanese.

You guys better hope I don't get hired by EA one day, sorry, I meant interned for very low wages

That's a very nice skin TheDeadPlayer.

As for shield symbols, maybe something to do with a raven? Cause they were helped out quite a bit by the ravens (I think it was a raven anyway).

Yeah, they were ravens. Otherwise you could try to combine a mounttain or some kind of a tower in front of a mountain...

First, thanks for all your comments! That I will retake one by one:

lol is that using nerteas leather tutorial?

~ The Doctor

No, I haven't taken the time to read them yet :)

~ LadyRhiea

I'm glad that you like the armor kind that I put to them :) and I'm sure that your owns Men of Dale are good too :cool:

maybe something to do with a raven

~ Zimoo

Yeah I like this idea! Great idea, I will use it! thanks!

a tower in front of a mountain

~ Dark Lord of the Sith

It's a good idea too, because it gives a good representation of men of dale, but it's maybe too landscape to put it on a shield
Anyway thank you very much!

Thats really great work, you're improving very fast. I dont think you have to change the shield, as you only took the concept from RA, and you made your own model and skin of the shield. As long as you constantly give credit, then its OK. But I do recommend making your own shield design, because after seeing your concept art I'm sure you'll find a good design.

Hi evryone, (ladies first :mellow:)
I come with the new shield (with the new symbol precisely). I hadn't change the design, because it's a shield that exists, it wasn't invented by RA (even if they (RA members) use this shield for men of dale too).
So now there is the new shield based on a raven (Thanks zimoo :p )

Posted Image

I hope that you like it as much as the remainder!
There will be another symbole for the heavy shield!

It looks very good, but you need to work on the gold a bit. Change the hue a bit towards orange and use metallic-type highlights on it... and darken a bit perhaps?

I like it the way it is. And is it really ment to be gold on top of the wooden shied or rather painted? Gold would be kinda expensive for normal soldiers...

The gold is far too bright, needs some desaturating.

Indeed the raven was too bright, I gave it an effect more gilded, like if the symbole was a painting

like if the symbol was a metal plate (thanks Dark Lord of the Sith)

I think that it's fixed, but your comments are always welcome :blink:

Well if this thing is made of metal (gold), it's probably one piece, not? Apart from that, it really looks better.
