    My first unit in quite a while. For the upcoming fantasy mods.... It has a couple tiny flaws that I'm sure some of you will find. But, enjoy.

    BTW if there are any Pallette Masters out there feel free to create White wizards/black wizards from this.

    Meh
    First to reply.

    My first reaction was "Saruman King Unit", but I'm not a LOTR freak, so I can't be 100% sure.

    Thank you Kindred.
    Glad to see your making units again. Your Scottish Warrior was especially fantastic.

    Sorry to reply to myself, but I saw that there where transparency issues with the pcxs.
    Kindred, it's easy to learn how to do it. If you use photoshop I can give you a "course". :)
    Anyway, here they are:

    Yeah, I did it all in poser. However, If I were to do it again, I'd make the light stream in the victory animation a little thicker, it's a little too hard to see in the game.

    edit: Also, I wish I would have made the square wider so that the ball would fly a little farther.

    :goodjob: Thank you for this beautiful unit Kindred72.
    We have now an Istari (like Gandafl, Saruman, Radagast, ....).

    :groucho: What do you think about a Nazgûl unit? :worship:

    Well, I know how picky you guys are.:p ;)

    The attack and victory took me a long time to do with the lighting animations, so I kinda just sped through the other animations.

    I have discovered it is always best to animate a 239x239 animation, it doesn't make the file size much larger, but allows you flexibility if you ever want to add to it, and 239 means you can use a a 10 wide pixel grid easily in a paint program. (there is an extra pixel in between animation cells that would throw off and make the grid useless)

    Oh yeah, and this unit looks cool too. :goodjob:
