    Well, here are my first humanoid units. They are a Gondorian swordsman and spearman unit, made specifically for LOTM. Major kudos to Curious Labs for offering Poser5 for free, Utahjazz7 for his amazing tutorial, and Plotinus for uploading some basic sword-swinging animations (without which the swordsman may not have been done).

    Gondor Spearman:



    Download Here

    Gondor Swordsman:



    Download Here

    Dunedain Swordsman: - this is a recolor of Kinboat's Woodsman. I just colored the cloak gray to give him a Dunedainic feel. However, this unit could serve in any number of ways. Updated 5-23-2007 with a new civilopedia image



    Download Here

    Knight of Dol Amroth: Updated: 9 July 2007 - This unit comes both with and without civ colors. We needed a non-civ-specific version for LotM.



    Download the civ-specific version

    Download the no-civ-color version

    That's cool. I really like the lighting effect you did on the shield.

    Wooo.. those are cool! Thanks!

    For future reference, the death of the spearman is kinda weird, like someone pulled a carpet from beneth him. Other than that, its all cool :cool:

    Olorin0222... Congratulations on your 1st Humanoid Units. Very Good Work. I especially like the Shield movement in the Spearman Victory and you also made both Death animations look good with how they fall and their feet actions. :goodjob:

    These are da-bomb... but not literally. They're still awesome. Something that might be different in gameplay, but I think the unit itself looks a tad to dark.

    Cool!
    (not to sound gimmie-like, but could you make an archer to go with these?)

    :D

    Pretty good work, Stormy's right about the spearmen death, the swordsman death is good, what it is with the spearman is that the lower legs slip forward, as Stormy said, as if a carpet was being pulled out from under them. But still very useable, and those attacks do look fun.

    I certainly wouldn't mind a matching archer ;)
    I might have to use that one sometime! :whipped: :evil:

    Great first units Olorin.

    Why not use Kinboat's Warder unit graphics for the Dunedain's pcx's? The legs may not be civcolor, but at least the cloak's not green. It seems to be a better trade off.



    I second that. The armor looks really good, but I always think of Gondor soldiers as 'gleaming'

    Definately. What ever you do next, I look forward to it.

    Rifleman - Good call on the Civilopedia image. I have updated the download per your suggestion.

    It would be nice...now if someone would post a basic archer animation in the Poser Animation Library in my sig (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, R8XFT, Plotinus) :evil:

    I have to say I like the spearman death - it's better to have his feet move up and forwards like that rather than remain rooted to the spot. The swordsman death is mine, of course!

    Excellent work for your first human units. No need to fix anything (have I said that before, I don't recall :p )
