    UPDATE: pencilgod has created a fantastic new skin for Hitler. You can find his download here.



    Previous Version:
    Spoiler :
    Yes, it's another Hitler. The first skin was great, but Napoleon's uniform didn't look that great. :sad: The second skin used FDR's face, which didn't go down so well...

    So here's my version! Complete with suit, hat and Iron Cross.



    Download Here

    Now includes a no-hat version (as per requests):


    Bear in mind, this is a work in progress, mainly due to the skin quality, so I might be coming back to it in future. If someone more skilled than I wants to make a skin, please, go ahead, and I'll probably replace mine with yours.

    I also want to add an insignia to the cap, to round it off nicely.


    Please keep comments to the leaderhead, and not the leader. Ta. ;)

    Credits:
    Dutchking - originally used the hat from his Rommel
    KrugerPritz - now using his modified hat
    kodzi, Hadrean and Elohim - I used their Napoleon skin as my base, and I've used their background
    pencilgod - creator of the new skin (it rocks!)

    This looks promising... but...

    I HATE THE SOVIET HAT! Absolutely must go IMHO. The hat looks bad, the hat looks Russian... He'd look better without the hat, plain and simple... his hair should be fine for the top of his head.

    The triple-swastika cuff thingie... looks bad... Just go with the armband and leave the cufs plain (even if the armband is on both sleeves, but one sleeve if that's workable would be the best thing to do).

    Okay, Wolfie. The hat has been changed slightly since I took those screens, but not much. And it's perfectly acceptable to use here. If you don't like it, you can delete it in NifSkope ;)

    On the cuff thing, I agree. I'll do that for the next version.

    Say, could you help with the skin?

    Maybe... say... can you offer TWO Nifs... one with and one without the hat... I really hate the hat (and Hitler didn't wear them inside anyways).

    Since Wolf has said all that might be criticized, I think he looks OK - just wondering about the Iron Cross: is it Rommel's or Hitler's? :confused:

    I'm not sure on the cross. I just googled for it :lol:

    And, Wolf, again, you can delete the hat in NifSkope. Can you use NifSkope? ;)

    Nope... can't figure it out. I'm old and fear change. I just learned of the internet a few weeks ago.

    If it's so easy, can you just offer two seperate NIFs? With and without hat?

    Jeez, if more people want a no-hat version, I'll offer one. For now, being an experienced modder yourself, you can edit it at your end to suit your own needs.

    Now, anyone else have anything to say?

    I'm not an experienced modder for models, I'm a somewhat proficient skinner... there is a difference. If I knew how to do it myself, why do you think I asked?

    Don't worry about it... I'll stick with my current Hitler... don't know why everyone has a fetish with freakin' hats anyways... most of them look horrible anyways.

    Good job niks, and I'd say just leave it as it is and if wolf wants to change it he can.

    Hey this looks very nice, I take it that this is a non-shader version?

    @Wolfshanze...stop being so picky, he said it was a work in project. Removing the hat will be a very quick fix in nifskope (if you don't want him with the hat).

    Thanks again NikNaks! :goodjob:

    You manage to put heads on units, so you should be able to take hats off LHs :rolleyes:

    And thanks for the, er, support, DK.

    EDIT: Yep, this is without shaders right now. DK promised he'd write his tutorial at some point.

    I did? Funny, I don't remember ever changing one model.

    Why do you keep assuming I know how to work with Nifscope when I keep saying I don't and can't figure it out?

    If I knew how to do it myself, I'd say the hell with you guys and change it myself. Or do you think I wouldn't change something to fit my own needs even if I knew how?

    If I say I can't figure out Nifscope in public, it's probably because I can't figure out Nifscope... and not some devious plan to get someone else to do something I already know how to do just fine.

    I was thinking about some units like your Austro-German Warlords, where you claim to have "a new head" and "a new crown", but obviously that's a ruse.

    He doesn't want to remove the hat. You can do it yourself by downloading nifskope, right clicking on the hat and clicking "remove" and save it. Its not rocket science.

    These things you speak of sound easy... I have Nifskope, it just scares the beejebies out of me everytime I look at it... which right now is about all I know how to do... view an object with it.

    Maybe I'll try looking again.

    yikes...calm down Wolfshanze, take it easy. Like dutchking said, you can remove the hat on nifskope by right clicking on the hat,

    then go to block > remove branch and that's it.

    Now for some constructive criticism :goodjob:

    NikNaks, you should give your "Hitler" the angry look Elhoim had on his. You know, when you met Hitler for the first time he had the annoyed look already.

    Me not knowing much about LH making, wouldn't it be easier to just give Elhoim's Hitler a new uniform reskin?

    Smooth work ignoring the point about you knowing how to use it :rolleyes:

    Which angry look is this, DWOLF? I've got the same base he did.
