    For the Narnia mod, as requested by Spacer One. Thanks go to him for supplying me with the model, and to Vuldacon for help with the sounds.

    Beaver Worker





    Get him here.

    Beaver Warrior

    Why have they given him a mail shirt but no weapon? The Narnian quartermaster has some explaining to do.





    Get him here.

    The Beaver Worker won Unit Of The Month January 2007!

    Plotinus... Excelent animations and the movements are superb. Love the Road animation with the tail patting down the road and his little dance movement.

    The Beaver Warrior looks Great...you captured the "Beaver Movements" in your animations and that brings the units to life...I am quite certain it was a Chore. Very Well Done!

    Oh wow, (sound of a sig being changed). :) Is this going into the competition this month? Cos I dare say that you'll get plenty of votes. As well as plenty of Kudos from all. :goodjob:

    As usual the animations are very well done, all the movements are clearly inspired by beavers. I seem to remember reading somewhere that you found death animations difficult to do, but these look great. They recall to my mind that Panda worker that Kinboat made (and that is high praise). Any chance of a beaver settler? :mischief:

    Noooo! I never want to see another beaver again as long as I live. This thing took forever. I wish it were as good as Kinboat's Panda Worker, which I revisited while making this, and got a bit depressed as I can never hope to equal it! Kinboat is a true artist and his Panda Worker is one of the best units ever made. However, I am glad with the way these came out, especially as they are my first non-human units; I tried to give them as much character as possible through the animation. Like Vuldacon, I like the Road animation the best. If you have lots of them on screen doing this at the same time it looks like they're dancing.

    Anyway, I'm glad they're appreciated. I've bunged the Worker into the monthly competition but I don't know how he'll fare against Captain Jack Sparrow!

    Guess they figure the teeth are weapon enough. And from what I hear, they are.

    Wow, I can't believe it, somebody caved and made the Beaver Worker! :lol:

    Looks awesome, Plotinus, but I don't envy the job you had to do in order to make it that way.

    That is one nice looking unit, sounds like it took a lot of work too. And I'm loving the clear forest animation. Well done!
