Please an official Redesign of the Coatl

Ge32Ge32 Registered Users Posts: 110


I request please an official re-design for the Coatl. It really is embarrassing to carry a bird-like figure among a regiment of dinosaurs and lizards, taking the Lore of the Lizardmen into the trash.

The Coatl must be a serpent with wings, nothing more.

Please an official in-game redesign.

    You proceed to show a model that isn't even a GW official one while the Coatl in game is based on an actual official model.

    Besides, this conversation took place when the DLC came out and it's not going to change now.

    After zero changes to the despicable Stone Trolls, yeah, would not expect they roll the red carpet out for a Coatl change.

    I'm fine with its head. Its animations are in a dire need of a rework though.

    I really liked the artwork from more recent armybooks, it was also interesting that the wings were actually a old one artifact.

    Yeah i´d like that, not to mention it would be a great opportunity to fix the jankiness of the unit as well.

    More like an official kitbash. The GW model is crap and doesn't even look like the official artwork.

    The Coatl doesn’t have an official model, it was literally something they threw together in WD to show what people can do with their spare parts.

    The Coatl design is literally based on spare parts

    Don't mind the look

    Do mind the animation; it's awful in combat
  • GreenColouredGreenColoured Registered Users Posts: 6,927
    I'm not too bothered by the bird head since Lizardmen always had birds in their roster, it's their ugly AF attack animations that needs fixing

    ^ This, nothing was done for a unit that had a model and fans asking for redesign. Won’t happen here either.
    We want all the factions Dogs of War, Araby, Ind, Kuresh, Nippon, Hobgoblin Khanate. Milk us CA.
  • BeargodBeargod Registered Users Posts: 452
    I like the bird head, otherwise it would look too similar to a dragon only withouth legs.

    yes but now we are stuck with it . they made it official, the best hope one can do with it
    1. give it more ornaments and Mask as @Maedrethnir suggested
    2. hopefully improve its animations god they suck and by extension cathayan dragon sibilings dragon form have the same issues for lesser degree so may be CA will be willing to add more animations that both can use in future

    Just install the head mod and call it a day. They ain't going back to it. Should've raged as hard like with the Woodcutters the Vampire Coast was supposed to get for Aranessa.

    well, it isn't a great model, but I mean, it's a feathered serpent, like Quetzalcoatl.

    Yeah but you love things that suck and everyone else hates, you make that clear in every single thread. And that’s totally cool, but this topic is for people who don’t so yeah of course you don’t understand.

    I want a redesign, but, yes, at the very least they should give it more ornaments and mask to cover all the horror. Plus, of course, fixed animations.

    the quality of this meme is surprisingly high. im not too fussed either way on a rework tbh

    As often, mods came in to save the day. Hopefully the following mod will get ported over to WH3 when IE arrives. Unfortunately vanilla Coatl is just bad.
    Here's what the mod does:

    It's interesting that the bird head look clearly derives from the kitbashed model from White Dwarf magazine, yet the head utilized was taken from a dragon kit. So logically the head should look more draconic, which while not necessarily serpentine, is still at least reptilian. Why they went with the bird head is beyond me.
  • DavidTWWH#4143DavidTWWH#4143 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 1,326
    Yeah honestly it's by far the worst looking model in the game, looks like it's from a different game altogether.
