the tau etheral, passive hero of the tau stands proud at only 364 polys! hes armed with the "symbols of office" but i not sure if i should arm him with an honor blade instead, maybe as an upgrade? i decided the 2 knife looking symbols because seems to be more common for etherals to have, I have started boning him, and i wouyld like to try animating him myself, if i fail ill pass it on to another
can sumone just giv me a brief explanation of how i animate him, also he needs to be in peices to animate but must be 1 peice to skin, so how do i skin and animate him?
right now hes unskinned
whoops didnt attach
Ah, yes, it's very good - But perhaps the legs can be altered a little, they seem abit quarter-circlish to me :S!
It may also be an idea to add an honorblade as an upgrade ;)!
i mainly based him off this, but parts of the therals clothing i took from other GW models
well, i think that you have to add a sleave to his left arm aswell. it might not be easy to spot, but i think its there...
Looks nice, But there are still a few places you could trim down polys.
For instance, the arms. I think in Generals, the arms are prisms, or oblongs at the most. Don't get me wrong, I really like what you've done with it, but a bit of effeciency with the polys wouldn't go amiss. How much of that wonderful detail are we really going to see anyway? The generals models werent exactly highly detailed were they.
nope the infintry models in generals trully suck ass, but with this model i not worried bout polys at all, he a hero unit so ull only have 1 of em, no big deal if he got alot of polys which he doent anyway he only 364, generals infintry around 200-300 so no worries
sorry about this pyro... but i still havent got him ingame. I had been ill for a few days before the weekend, then my pc went all weird so i had to system restore, and in the process have lost the ethereals. I checked my e-mail but it was gon, i think i had deleted it cos it was taking up to much space
