Can we please redo Castle head?

AbmongAbmong Registered Users Posts: 1,345
Henri le Massif just looks generic. Please EA (*cough*) I mean CA. All you need to do is model a new helm crest for him. You can do it with existing assets. Grails and Lion crests models are already in game. All Henri's crest is is a grail flanked by four lions rampant... Shouldn't be too hard to resize an existing grail mesh and dup four lions around it.

Also can you also maybe add her shield to Repanse's back? She needs some colour on her model, the blue shield would help cut the all metallic look which is more associated with Empire Knights. Bretonnians have a softer, more colourful embroided look in general.

    doesn't he need his sword first as a quest item

    His sword doesn't look that unique to me, aesthetically I don't think it really need redoing.

    sure.
    I'm personally more concerned with the looks of things. Visual stuff looking wrong really bug me.

    grew up very old computers, visual things bug me the least.

    I'll redo him a little next week after release, when I update Bretonnia with new faction before releasing the next version of my mod.
    Mostly to make him bigger so he really is "le massif". For the record, I have reduced the size of lord and heros a little
    (like they are 1.1 instead of 1.15), but for him I'll try 1.2.

    I wonder if it's possible to also give Repanse a sword + shield... But even if you could, it might look wierd having a 2-handed sword in one hand and shield in the other. Unless you swap the new sword out for a generic 1-handed one.

    Bretonnians already have units that have a 2h sword with a shield (and typically a spare 1h sword) strapped onto their backs or on their saddles, Abmong.

    Although tbh... with a decent ricasso you could have your shield and use that big ol' two hander as a shortspear just fine.

    The first mod I'll be doing is probably change Repanse's faction icon. It should be white with either gold or blue fleur de lys.

    also, her sword should have been a 1 handed sword from the start... and a banner in her other
    Every wrong is recorded. Every slight against us, page after page, ETCHED IN BLOOD! Clan Gunnisson! Karak Eight Peaks! JOSEF BUGMAN!"

    CA hates the Empire confirmed. The FLC LL for the new Lord Pack is Gor-Rok. Meaning the Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. And no, moving Balthasar Gelt from Reikland, where he should be, DOES NOT COUNT. If they wanted a LL in the Southern Empire: Marius Leitdorf of Averland or maybe Elspeth von Draken in Nuln...

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    GHAL MARAZ IS THE WEAPON OF THE SETTING! YET SOME BRETONNIAN SWORD IS MORE POTENT?! BUFF GHAL MARAZ IN SIGMAR'S NAME!

    Strapped to her back or in her off hand, I just want the shield in to contrast the all metal look.

    Surely her faction icon should be like her officially paint banner:
    Per pale Azure and Gules, a fleur-de-lys Or within an Orle counterflory Or overall.
    (Translation: verically divided background of blue (left) and red (right) with gold fleur-de-lys in the center and flowery gold inset trim)

    or like her personal armiger (coat of arms/heraldry):
    Azure, two Lions passant guardant Or
    (Translation: Blue background with two gold Lions in profile walking pose with head facing the viewer)

    Yeah yeah I can read/write Blazon I'm a sad geek...

    Yeah I was disappointed it wasn't the 1-handed sword like on the TT model. We'll have to see how odd it looks if/when a modder tries to give her a sword+shield animation with the 2-handed sword. Main problem being CA modelled it as a 2-handed sword, not even a hand-and-a-half sword that you could get away with using one handed... Asking for the banner is like banging our heads against the wall at this stage, CA can't/won't do them for some reason and they're not telling us why...

    Longswords are mostly used 2h thou. The hilt is not really good for using it in one hand, your hand will get tired very quickly.
