    This took too long to do... partly because I was putting it off for other projects and partly because of the difficulty but here it is.

    The great Dwarven war machine the Goblin Hewer. I had to make a few sacrifices to animate this thing but I hope it still works (one of those sacrifices is the AttackA animation... there isn't actually any attack it's just setting up the machine, I did an in game test and it seems to look fine).

    Preview of Attack B: (This preview was made before I worked out the civ-color situation so it may not look like it but there are civ-colors in the final unit.)

    You've got to be kidding me! No wonder it took a long time to do--look at it. Wow, that's an awesome unit, Kinboat. Nice work.

    Holy sh!t! This makes me glad my skin isn't green. Well, that, and green skin might mean I have gangrene. But the Goblin Hewer is right up there on a list of reasons I'm glad I don't have green skin. :)

    Excellent job, Kinboat!

    I was wondering when we'll see the finished thing. This is a perfect 12 :thumbsup:

    [Edit]: But I assume, that the animations don't work well, if this unit is a bombarding unit (doesn't the bombarding-animation play only the attackA-animation?)

    Who cares! I'm happy to use this as an ultimate killing machine :D

    :thumbsup: Great post there, Bungus.

    Hey, Kinboat - I found a mistake in your unit :p :
    The crew of the goblin hewer should consist of three slayers (orange beard and mohawk), and not of three regular dwarfs :joke:

    But still I can't find my jaw from the floor (now where did it go?). The death is just as chaotic as one would assume for a contaption of this magnitude :lol: .

    This definately makes the cut :lol: . Pun certainly intended.

    And if you don't mind me asking, kinboat, whatever happened to the pegasus unit you were making?

    Keep up the brilliant work!

    Crap. No not the unit, it's wonderful, I meant crap for now having to go back and reorganize my dwarves. This has to go in my mod, or there would be a tragedy. Awesome work Kinboat! Man I never dreamed of something like that. That is just too cool.

    Awesome unit, Kinboat! :) It should, like aaglo said, have a Slayer crew, though...
