So I've been working for the past week or so on a new hero for the evil side, nothing is certain yet as to whether it is going in game for definite yet, awaiting the RJ seal of approval first but I put this model out there. I want to know what kind of ideas you would have for this character if he were placed ingame... The name is not set in stone yet but a couple have been tossed around so don't take the caption "Suladan" to be anything other than a want of calling it something. there are currently two versions, although a 3rd version has been proposed but we may not go with that for the simple reason that it may be a bit similar to another hero.... here are the current two. Basically we need to know which would people rather, the hero in a chariot or on horse and what kinda powers you would like him to have.

Let me know your thoughts/ suggestions, thanks Ed

He looks like a king :p Don't mess with Suladan, but shouldn't he have a sword?

oh I love that Mounted version of his... that's so nice. Seems befitting of a king not to lumber around on a chariot, unless he's an archer, but to have his own steed :dry: IMHO

Finally! Someone who doesn't use Suladan! He reminded me too much of Saladin, who he was likely named and based off of. Except for the fact that the Haradrim aren't going on a religious crusade to whipe out the opposite worshipers. They just want land.
I'm creeping, not gone.

well we were thinking something along the same lines as The Witchking in that, this guy was something so terrible it and renowned that he didn't have a name, simply known as force of evil with the title "..........?" It would also add mystery to the character. This also leave it open to interpretation for the player and how they connect the character/title with events in the campaign etc.

Actually, he has a bow in his hand on the chariot.

That's some very detailed work there. Perfect! Who did you base him on (I know you posted the pic, but where's it from)?

:) thanks I came across the pic a long long time ago when just randomly searching on the internet and found it referenced as something "a harad king may look like" - the picture itself is by Geistig or at least that is what it written on the JPG I downloaded... when I saw that pic, I knew I wanted to make it.... but for a long time I wasn't too sure of myself as regards, skinning, mapping and animating etc but I finally got it together and decided to give it a try, alot of it is recycled material built upon by new material.
