We currently have the forums up, and a sizeable team, but are still looking for more Skinners, Modelers, Voice Actors, and someone to do music.

The Troll Wars mod covers what is called the Great Troll War, which took place 50 years before WarCraft I (there used to be an obscure portion of the Blizzard site that had some info on this, but shortly after the announcement of the WoW expansion it disappeared... dunno y).  The war began in Azeroth, where Trolls had managed to be enough of an annoyance that the Azerothien King created the Troll Containment Act.  This act allowed humans to return Troll heads for a gold reward provided by local lords.  Within two weeks of the announcement, the disperate Troll clans united to face the human threat.  That is how the story begins.

The mod is set to have two campaigns, as well as regular single-player mode, a modified World Editor, and possibly multiplayer.

The forums will provide some more information if you desire it.

If you're interested in joining the mod team, either reply here or post in the appropriate section of our forums.  We'll have the main site up soon.

I have reviewed this project, but do not feel comfortable giving it official approval at this current point as the project is very early in its development phase.

That said, composers may feel free to work on it as they wish, but I simply do not wish to give my seal of approval just yet.

Of course, when this project is further along in the development process it may receive approval. Until then, however, it remains unapproved, but as with all unapproved projects, this thread is still allowed to exist and function as an advertisement for the project.

Just a quick note that we will be changing the url of the forums to be http://www.polarmaps.net/trollwars/forum/

That change has not yet taken effect, but will probably by the end of this week.

New domain.  We're also using Invision on the new one, which will be better for our purposes.  We're also making them look better, and adding a lot of features.

Posted below are numerous pictures showing the completed Azerothien Guard, Azerothien Archer Guard, and Sergeant Maffrin models.  The weapons are subject to change though (T.bo is currently modeling a new sword for the Azerothien Guard).  Expect more screenshots soon.  We expect to release some in-game screenshots (these are not really in-game, they are basically just model shots) and a video soon!

Here's the link to the topic on our forums, which has a poll and a lively discussion (feel free to edit this out if you want Melda)- http://www.k2o-gk.com/TrollWarsModWebsite/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=244

Hmm . . . for some reason I cannot view the entire images -- only the top few rows of pixels appear of each image . . . weird.

Give it time to load.  They are .png and not .jpg b/c .jpg loses too much quality and the higher poly count is barely noticeable with .jpg, but with .png/.bmp it really stands-out and looks more like it actually does.

EDIT: If waiting doesn't help, try taking the link over to our forums, perhaps you will be able to better view them there.

The images actually stop loading after a few lines of pixels of each image.

There is a large gap between images, too, which is where I expect the rest of the image should be, but the images seem to believe they are completely downloaded. D'oh!

Not sure what I can do to see them.
