In Native shots, now more suggestions on how to make them better! Also, anyone up for texturing?  :lol:

The last one is there just for fun...
Btw, won't be hear for the next few days.

The top one looks good. The helmet part can be mapped onto any of the Native helmet textures. They have very similar structure.

Yeah, the top isnt bad. You might shorten the shovels but its unique.  I dont know what Id use it for but Im sure it could fit somewhere with minor adjustments. The bottom one looks like he was captured by harkonens and fitted with a shovel mask to scrap up his food. He spends all day shovelling up low-nutrient rancid food just to stay alive.


For the budding helm makers here are some concepts. Just lay claim to one and give it a shot. We'll see what we get. Some of these will require custom textures to look really nice, others could get away with recycled vanilla or other tld textures.  As Triglav noted, we should really start being a little more careful with adding new textures. Still, some fancier ones could use them and we can shrink the sheet down if needed.

Merlkir tracked most of this stuff down:

This one below might be good with a brassy/bronze finish. You might be able to use the brassy corsair shell helm texture sheet (especially for the wavy trim).









This helm below could probably get mapped to the existing rohan helm sheet (mabye helmets_rohan.dds,  not the _b one)



Been looking for a new tower guard helm for a bit. One of these variants would be nice. Both with and w/o wings.











I believe this one below is being worked on already








Not sure about the wings but the crest is nice for a corsair helm maybe.  Might try to put it on the bronze/brassy corsair shell helmet sheet.












Not sure where any of them will go eventually but they are for various men. Ursca is working on the dwarf helms.  Ill go through merlkirs helm concept sketches tommorrow and put some of them up here as well.

Oh and sorry dablade, Ill post full sized next time if I can figure that out.

When we submit these (I know we're not yet), how are they submitted? Are the meshes sent as .OBJs? What about textures?

Yeah, models in .obj is best. Textures should be in .dds format. There is a plug-in for photoshop for .dds but if you cant do that I can just convert it myself.

I'll claim this one! Although I won't be able to work on it for next few days as I'm going away.

:lol: I cracked up big time!

Since we're putting some helm stuff together, I suggest we make the uruk-hai use helmets designed by J.Howe. (of course with all the other ones we have already too.)
Like the dude to the left. The skull face shaped one.

yeah, I suggested it for the corsairs, it has a nice numenorean feel to me, almost gondorian with those wings. Would be a nice bond to the numenorian heritage of both..

I'll claim one once I'm done working on the one I'm currently on. Maybe the tower guard one.

Stupid question #1:
Still in need of voice acting?  :)

Stupid question #2:

dude, polish is not bad ;) try the dwarves, they don't really have any sounds done as far as I know. If you need to know something about the pronounciation, just read my posts here some pages ago..

Great :)

Just a thought - How about adding "Theoden Nictu Hal" (Or similar, can't remember now) to the list-o'-quotes?
