I'll consider the Elven blonde hair for the Swordsmen... and the hair of Glorfindel (but I kinda like his white hair). Also I will probably make the hair of Dain somewhat brown though since Gloin's is white now, and from what I can see on pics of Dain, it should be brown (was he in the movie at Rivendell too?).

Anyway... in the mean time I finally got the new skin for SMAUG ready - yes that vicious thing from Erebor :p He's described as red & "goldish" and of all the art I could find of him, I kinda liked this one best...

So this is the former "Dragon Strike" of the retail game, now made into "Summon Smaug - the Dragon of Erebor". Hope you like the new look... I do! :grin:

Burn suckers... BURN! :crazed:

And then some...

And some over here too...

Oups, someone got pissed... ^_^
Posted Image

That'll do it for today... I'll fly home to Erebor *lol* :p

it's a masterpiece.... only I'd see him on another model, but that's out of your league :crazed:

nd from what I can see on pics of Dain, it should be brown (was he in the movie at Rivendell too?).

yeah sure, Dain's dead at the time :p I think... :grin:

edit: or wait, was he just dead when the WotR was over? cause I know he dies in Dale\Erebor, but not if it's before or after the founding of the FotR... ^_^

Hehe thanks Sûl! :crazed:

Another model Lauri? Hehe well, since he's not in the movie tha interpretations of his look vary, and I like that painting very much since it's pretty much the same style I paint myself (yes I'm an artist too) ^_^ And the model of the dragon strike just happens to be VERY similar to that piece of art, so I'm happy. Might make him bigger though, since he's the seconds largest dragon to have ever existed in Middle Earth, as far as I know :grin:

And about Dain... this is the only "real" pic I have of him, but it's not from the movie right?

Posted Image

I forgot one screen for Smaug, but I added it now... :p



And here's the new and needed reskin for the Ithilien Rangers... Higher res (like the Dunedain Rangers), more natural colors, and masks to cover their faces...

Yeah, I want that too, cause I want help with modding this to perfection... :crazed: Hurry up and fix it! :p

BTW: Smaug is now TWICE the size! hehehe... which makes him THE biggest flying unit in the game - as it should be! Hmmm... i Think I would like him to STAY for a while when summoned too (like 60 seconds), and be able to attack a couple of more times (he has the red attack icon, but he wont go anywhere else but "home" when he's attacked once. Any ideas how to do that, plz share them ^_^

Next item down is slightly polished skins for Haradrims and Easterlings...
Posted Image

And for Haldir and Legolas... and King Dain! :grin:

...

Smaug was one of the few characters actually drawn by Tolkien himself, so I sure as hell hope his looks don't vary :grin:

Posted Image

He should look like that, no arguing.

I think you could do with altering the skin to make him look more scaly.

The Dain pic was done by Decipher, a type of card game like Magic cards and Pokemon. They had help from WETA I believe, who designed the film stuff which is why they are useful references.

Thanks man! S.E.E. is sure as hell a 3rdAge-mod.

Nazgûl, when next updating the 10mb-picturebook-pdf, there should be a 3rdAge-Banner on the credits page.
While you are at it, i'd love to see the 4-frames 'Smaug loves a good burn' picture story in it! :xcahik_:

OT: I had an answer for everybody here with quotes, but the F-ING Party Poker CRAP, poped up in this window cause I opened up another window to look for a thread to link to... and upon going back from that f-cker, all written here was gone. Thanks to Party Poker for that... PARTYYYYYY! Asswhipes!!! ;) :xcahik_: :sad:

I understand that sites need to have sponsors like them assholes, but I HATE their god damn f-ing scripts that HIGHJACK your browser window! F-UCK I could kill someone for simple things like this *annoyed* ;) ;) :mad2:

Well, I'.. be back with more screens in a bit... Thanks for all replys and especially to 2Play for your offer ;)

YEY!!! Next reskin done! The Lórien Warriors (aka "Elven Guard") that I added from the start to this mod, has always bugged me in the way that they are 94x94 skins... All other elven units are maximum; 512 x 512. So after having reskinned the worst elven heroes, Haldir and Legolas, and polisehd the HA of the other units, I figures I needed to have a go at these... So by using Haldir as a base and then using bits and pieces from almost all other elven units I was able to map together a almost identical skin to the 94x94, but in TRUE 512x512 (no scaling). It turned out great I think! ;)

Lörien Warriors - S.E.E. exclusive - light armor! :xcahik_:
Posted Image

And in Heavy Armor!... I really spent a long time with coloring in Photoshop to try and get that feeling of the "super special elven armor in goldish look", that I imagine it. The goal is to only have elves using "golden" look, so I will adjust the other elven skins again, to match this perfectly (in my taste) darker saturated look ;)
Posted Image

And finally, lets see them together, and also the details of their hair, helmets and wepons and so on... ;)
Posted Image


Next up, are the Noldor Warriors, for the same reason... but this one is gonna be even harder... :sad:

Phfeeew... I think I did it... same procedure. A high res model to pick details from and lots of photographs from the net to cut up in pieces, scale and mount above the original skin. So here we go - the noble Noldor Warriors in 512x512 high res skins! :xcahik_:

Those skins look amazing :) You really have managed to bring realisism to BFME2 imo.

And if PartyPoker bothers you, get a PKR :D Much better and realistic that PartyPoker :p

Did you get rid of the Spider Riders? Those were in fact NOT original. It's another idea stolen from Warhammer by EA :) (there probabably IS a fan among them :p )
