Overhead Attack Animation

Overhead Attack Animation -

The official Warhammer Online site has released some nice video footage showing their 3D models performing an "overhead attack" move.  It is accompanied by a nice write-up on animation in their fantasy MMORPG:

So, it's high time we focused on the movement of WO's characters, and what we have here are the player models from each of the five races, rendered with no textures so you can focus on their sweet looking movements as they perform their two handed overhead attack animations.

Before getting into discussing the animations, the first thing I'll mention is that you lot have now got a decent height comparison of all the playable races, which I know some people have been eager for. As you can see the Ogres are suitably large, the Halflings rather diddy, and the rest take their place in between (the Elves are actually taller than the humans but in this animation his pose is a little crouched). We're still undecided yet if the Ogres should occasionally forget to duck as they enter doorways causing them to bash their heads in a glorious and randomly slapstick way!
