    This was requested by utro for his mod. I had a snow day today (even though it didn't snow) so I used the hours of boredom to finish this guy. He turned out pretty well, I think. Pretty generic, could be used for just about anyone. Enjoy!

    Looks pretty good, odin. i think the attack could use a bit more "oomph", but the rest are great :D

    btw, it looks more like a swordsman to me ;)

    Looks great!:) You're making a lot of improvement quickly (though your first unit was already nice). The animations are well done. Good job.:goodjob: :)

    Sorry, after hours of rendering and nitpicking you kind of go into a trance. Your eyelids stop working, your butt hurts and you lose basic consciousness. Name changed, :cringe: Thanks for the preview, Par!

    Nice job, I like that it is very generic looking and that gives it many more uses.

    Brilliant! Your talent for unit making more than out shines that glare off of your forehead mate!

    From here, life gets a little bit more interesting...the talent agents at Firaxis will surely be watching you now. . .If you suddenly disapear, who should we notify? Your next of kin? Your cat?

    This is a great unit, Odin. I really like the victory and the death is good to (I know those are hard). Two minor suggestions: rotate the hips, abs, and neck in the default to give a little movement (2 degrees should do it). Add 4 frames to the attack anim. Copy frame 10 to 14 and fill in the other new ones with the + in the key frame editor. This will slow down the backswing, making the thrust look faster. Also, increase the attack flic speed. I know this is minor, but there's not much I can say about such a well done unit.

    I must admit it's very good. You're showing much potential with your first two units. I'm confident you'll soon turn into an exceptional unit maker!

    Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone! I really didn't expect the unit to come out this well. When I was designing the victory and death, especially, I thought they were sub-par, and I would redo them. Even in all the animations, I had problems with the feet moving or levitating. But when everything came out rendered and finished, I looked at them and was stunned that they didn't come out looking like crap, :lol:
