WiPs for Legion mod

Just thought I’d make a thread for all the mod stuff I’m making, it’s a mod set around the first century AD with battles between heavily armoured, defending Romans and stealthy, attacking Barbarian Hordes

anyway, on to some art, crit away if you please :slight_smile:

this is the creation of the Imperial Aquila which is basically the flag that needs to be possessed in-game. I’ll go over basemeshes, sculpting, UVing and Baking as well as texturing.
Part 1, 2, 3 and 4 (more coming soon)

More to come soon :slight_smile: if anyone has any suggestions, thoughts, ideas, etc. I’d love to hear them

First thing that came to mind was “Ave, true to Caesar.”

I fucking approve. Nice job.

[editline]18th March 2011[/editline]

actually I have one little gripe: the scratches on the gladus are too uniform.

that is all

thanks :slight_smile: yeah I’ll make the scratches more random instead of uniform, onto the shield next

worked on the shield, few artifacts to fix, could probably put some nice details on the back, may even sculpt it :o who knows

The straps seem the wrong way. How’re you meant to hold it with the straps like that?

Don’t they put their arm through the two straps? I thought that’s what it was at least. I don’t think you really hold it, it’s just strapped onto your forearm.

Sexy models.

bit of a poor image but you can just about see the orientation in this picture :slight_smile:,1190019901,3.jpg

Made the bow, contemplating having leather or some other material on the tips for variation…

Will there be a version of the bow also draw as well?

the bow will be rigged up so it’ll stretch and change shape when drawn back :slight_smile:

Damn, these look great. Are you texturing them as well as modelling them?

yeah all of the stuff you see here so far is mine, I’m just baking the normals and AO for the auxiliary shield now. We’re planning on have two squads to the Romans, one as legionaire’s, with heavy armour and shields, the other being auxiliaries, with bows/spears and light armour, the major differences being in speed of the two

edit: here’s the shield

Double posting makes me sad q.q

anyways, working on some tutorials, tell me if they’re useful or not, or if more depth is needed

Nifty looking equipment there. When you say “barbarian” do you mean something generic or are you shooting for a specific tribe?

Slightly generic, however using bodygroups that means I can have them looking similar but vary it from map to map. So say on a map of Britain there are more exposed barbarians with blue tribal paintings on them, whereas in Germania the barbarians have blonder hair and wear helmets, those sorts of differences :slight_smile:

Nice. I’ll certainly be looking forward to your releases.

Thanks :slight_smile: I’ve done the Aquila which is essentially the Flag in-game, I might start on a character next

Can’t wait for these models to get released.
