Thread: DaC Unit Models Rework

  1. #1

    Default DaC Unit Models Rework

    After already proposing my reworked unit models for some units in the suggestion forum, I will now open up this thread to gather all my work and hopefully discuss with you about my creations.

    My intend in the first place is to give proud and elite armies from elves, dwarves and men a more uniform and professional look. I always was a bit sceptical seeing elite units with different weapon choices, differing armour details and so on. Sure this is my personal opinion but in my world elves form up in small, elite and evenly equipped battalions, dwarves also are proud of their finaly crafted armour and axes and the high tier units of men would love to be compared with the glory and uniformity of these two powerful races. Just imagine how dishonoured the legion units of Khazad Dűm would feel even considering grabbing different shields without the dwarven runes showing of their ranks.
    On the other side I completely understand a unit of militia, farmhand and especially orcs to grab everything they can to outfit themselves for battle leading to different weapons and shields.
    So far to my reasoning.

    I already implemented the models in my game and they work perfectly fine. You can also see proposed name changes for some units. Currently I create new UI for the units and plan to expand my work on other factions.
    Following is a detailed list of all the changes I made to the units. Some units got absolut minor changes which are barely noticeable (listed as cleaning the model) but make the units look so much more clean.
    My models are intended to be used as the last available armour upgrade.

    If you are interested in using some models in your own game feel free to contact me.
    I am trying to release my models as a submod for DaC if there is enough interest.

    Looking forward to hear what you guys think and suggest.
    Thank you!

    They all look pretty nice.
    But , even though I like Imladris in Silver armour, I doubt the DaC team will accept the change.
    The Elder Palace Guard seems like a good adittion , considering how small the Woodland Realm roster is, but the Elder King's Guard looks similar as well ...so , another possible addition that the DaC team may reject.
    I do like the new look of the Dunedain blademasters, It looks far more professional for that kind of unit. The Dunedain Trollsayers are a good addition Lore wise since the Dunedain would be prepared to face the Trolls from the Ettenmoors and the Trollshaws (remember that Aragorn's grandfather was killed by trolls). But the Dunedain roster is quite big. Even with the new mix of Cardolan swordmen/sentinels.
    Overall , they look very good and I honestly Hope the DaC team could change the models this way. Cheers !

    Thanks for your feedback.

    You are right: for now it seems that DaC is not going to include the silver Imladris armour in the game to have the uber elite units stand out more. So they have to stay in my own game for now^^
    Concerning the Woodland Realm I think that the Palace Guard (who are kind of the melee version of the standard faction bodyguard and are my suggestion for Thranduils personal bodyguard) would give them something to stand out from the other elven factions.
    The Blademasters would go perfectly as Aragorns Bodyguard: I was never a fan of giving Aragorn a sword and bord unit...
    The Troll Slayers would fit perfectly concerning the lore: and they would loose their bow giving the Wardens of the North (my faction bodyguard suggestion) with their Steelbows something more to stand out.

    This is very good work. I myself was working on this type of thing because Reforged is a treasure trove of units that I feel should be in DAC.
