    Well I talked with Bjorn and he thought it looked pretty good, and you know how he has high standards. Your talented Shiro.

    What I said was that it was 'ok'. It has the same flaws as the Troll attack that I previewed. For me, the troll attack wasn't good enough.
    But, while this one isn't perfect, I think it is a huge step in the right direction, and taken together with the much improved skin tone, good enough.
    The thrust as a slight wobble to it. The tip moves a little bit too much right after being extracted from his "new special friend". But, I think it works.
    I am assuming those minor flaws are what you are complaining about Shiro?
    Really so much better than the old "bad doggy" slap-attack that there is almost no comparison.
    SOG, this should be your quality bar. Do this well or better on your next series of animations too, eh?
    :hatsoff:
    Thanks for taking the time and effort to get it right.

    With that hat, he's perfect for a gnomes vs smurfs scenario. We already have smurf cities, too!

    Thank you Swoggy! This has all the flaws fixed, :). Now, here's a tip, post a preview of the unit before you post it, that way if anyone (*cough*Bjorn*cough*;)) sees something weird in it, you can fix it, :).

    Once upon a time, he asked me to comment on his units so he could get better... I'm thinking he regrets that stray comment now, eh?
    It's ok. It's all friendly and all in the spirit of helping a fella out.
    Besides, I really like SoGs passion for the game. I figure if I can talk him into slowing down just a tiny bit, I will benifit myself by all the cool stuff I can DL.

    I just noticed this...you are getting WAY better SoG...2 issues...

    1 wouldnt that hat fall off during heavy activity?....doesnt seem very streamlined...

    2 is he wearing tennis shoes??

    otherwwise sweet unit...the spear could be more "solid" in the attack, but all in all very nice
