You hath read my mind good sir! I was about to make this same request. Im dying for a Spartan model. I dont care if its the 300 movie version, or an accurate history version. Spartans are awesome either way.

WTF, how did my post get above yours!?

Well, this is actually my 4th try at posting this topic. And there's no way in hell I'm rewriting it all yet again. The main idea is to adress the modding community in an effort to produce player and weapon models, more precisely Spartan soldiers/warriors ones. For instance, if you have seen the blockbuster movie 300, you'll have noticed that they used only thin layers of clothes for their mid body area, and a helmet. So the main issue here is to model the helmet unto an existing or new model. Several versions of the helmets could be presented (like the mohawk ones for high ranking soldiers), as well as actual weapons. Now, on the weapons side, this is particularily adressed to Inyri, which as I have seen, invests a lot of time into modding weapons. I saw your medieval weapons pack and it comes pretty close to using a spear and shield. Now, my memory is a little vague, but I think there is an animation in JKA that allows as a complete horizontal lunge forward, I guess that could become the spear + shield special attack, or normal one. Whichever the case, that's for wheover does it to decide. I had pictures for references but I lost them in the death of my previous topics =< Ideas, comments or questions are available. I would like to partake in this project obivously as I would probably be one of the most benefitted from this, but I'm a grotesque modeler. I tried and... no. I could help somewhat with skinning, but that's about it.

//Edit. Woot it posted.

Lol, post jumped. Good game, vBulletin. Anyways, nice post Pahricida. But what I meant was that there were Spartans with the actual Spartan helmets (and perhaps robes, if well done). Here's an impeccable reference: Spartan.PNG Also, the models in the pack you proposed are sloppy (no offence intended to the author). That's why I'm proposing to make a good, solid model. Kind of like, when everyone was making the Darth Maul with a Reborn skin, until someone made an actual model. Right now, we're looking someone to make the actual model. It's important also to try and figure out a way to implement a shield in all this. I don't really know if it would look ugly with the current JKA animations (single saber slash animations). But at that point, it would be a mod, not jsut a model. The real issue now is to make the model(s), imo.

//Edit. And that's a JK2 mod. :3

I'm more than willing to model weapons/shields. 300 was a very entertaining movie... plenty to look at... :p

Anyway... I have an old model of Gir's that I altered to be a Greek hoplite that never got finished. Could be a starting place.

Yar, sounds good. That looks like it needs more detail on the actual helmet. The mohawk needs to be much longer, going all across the skull (see the image I proposed). Think Gir would be interested in chipping in?

//Edit. Lol, just realised you mentionned "plenty to look at." Why you...

Post-Jump galore.

By the way, I've been thinking. The spears, how would it be possible to incorporate them? Using them as a saber staff would be horrible. It would look stupid, just like the other staff saber/models out there (except for actual sabers). A thing that came to mind is that there is a special JKA animation that was used in I-don't-remember-what saber, which was a direct horiztonal forward lunge. My guess would be to use that animation for the staff. Or maybe add an animation stance. But that would make it a mod. >=X

Man, this turns out to be much more creative than I thought it would.

*Burst of pride*
