Hey fellas, today is a big day! While work continues on the mechanics and everything else, speeding towards our Alpha Demo, today we officially open the Lords of Nether Vault!
Here you will be able to first hand view our ingame 3D models at your leisure! We will be doing this for the next 5 weeks every Saturday, with the creatures and heroes we currently have, then we might show off some of the props and tilesets!

Enjoy the Vault Lord, with this first look at the fully modelled and textured Skeleton!

Don't know how I missed this but wow, this upcoming game look incredible promising. Keep up the good work!

Thanks man, we'll keep doing our best! :D

This is freaking cool.

:)

We think so too!
We know you guys are itching for a demo so this is the next best thing so that you guys can get a preview of what the assets look like in 3D.

This way you guys can also see that there is no "Photoshop trickery" and stuff for screenshots and such - The models uploaded here are all 100% in-game models (minus the podium base of course, which is not in the game).
Lords of Nether is our passion and we're giving the models all the love they deserve. (And I hope you agree! haha)

Stay tuned guys, there will be new models dropped here for everyone to check out, on a weekly basis. :melee:

(minus the podium base of course, which is not in the game).

Damn, that was my favorite part of the model. I was really looking forward to seeing minions running around on podiums and smashing into each other in combat.

Wouldnt that be something :D Minion chess, haha

YourMaster

That's a stretch-goal for the kickstarter. Remember battle-chess?

DBlac
January 21st, 2018, 08:57
You joke but we've actually considered the possibility of making chess sets out of models :D that said a digital chess game like battle chess only with our units wooould be interesting :D

As a big fan of the game of chess I highly approve of this idea. What I wouldn't give for a DK chess set...

YourMaster
January 21st, 2018, 13:44
For DK it's the Reaper that would be the king of course, but so many choices for the other pieces. I think DK2 players would take the Mistress as the Queen, but I'd think I'd like to see a very tall Vampire as the queen with perhaps the Mistress as a Bishop, the Bile Demon as the knight and the Dragon as the Rook. Pawns could be Orcs or Imps.
And I prefer a chess set with the same pieces on both sites of the board, but there are even enough heroes to do as the other color.

DBlac
January 21st, 2018, 16:29
Lots of possibilities indeed!

Endrix
January 21st, 2018, 21:42
I think Bile Demon as the Rook and Dragon as the Knight fits better.

It's Saturday again, my Lords! And you know what that means? Another Nether Vault entry! Have a look at the goblin in Full 3D in the link bellow, but also enjoy this handy dandy video preview :D

Another one on the way next Saturday fellas! :D

YourMaster

Looks good again.
And you still have time to add the missing fingers, toes and penis. This is not the Simpsons of course.

DBlac
January 27th, 2018, 12:24
Or is it! Theres a theory out there im sure :P

damedog
January 27th, 2018, 13:14
For the record, i'm okay with no goblin penises in my life.

YourMaster
January 27th, 2018, 14:01
That's what the loincloth is for.

DBlac
January 27th, 2018, 14:20
How astute! But i think i agree with DD, all our lives are ok without goblin penises in them :D

YourMaster
January 27th, 2018, 14:28
Yeah, but I assume as a modeler you want some satisfaction for at least completing your model. I think Ancel is still kicking himself for forgetting the arms and legs on Rayman. Blutonium will regret it the rest of his life if he releases a game with incomplete goblins.

Besides, the Orcs in DK1 had their penises out as well. Ask Woudo, he made close-ups.

DBlac
January 27th, 2018, 14:42
Actually wasnt it orcs, trolls and barbarians? I thought that at first but then i saw in the cinematics they had banana hammocks and i assumed the pixels just made it looks funny :P That said i will get Blut on penis modelling duty post haste! Even for fully clothed characters. Gotta have that realism! :D

YourMaster
January 27th, 2018, 16:02
Exactly. Good.

Preparing for your own hot-coffee mod.

DBlac
January 27th, 2018, 22:13
Okay ive literally no idea what that is haha

EDIT: Alright.. i googled that... lol.

Physics limitations. I tried it but his bits kept interfering with the in-game cloth simulation.

So I had to resort to amputation unfortunately. Thanks to the Zbrush slicing tool there were no complications.

YourMaster

Perhaps the goblin should have went into battle with less floppy bits?

And what about the fingers and toes? Why are they gone?

Because he was designed that way.

DBlac
January 28th, 2018, 07:52
He needed to suffer so i cut those off. No one gets truly evil without some petty asshole causing you to suffer :P

I disagree, if you're a Goblin then you're probably pretty unhappy with missing a penis.

DBlac
January 29th, 2018, 08:49
Oh i apologize! I didn't want to be insensitive to any of the goblins on this forum! :P

Aaaand another Saturday comes to bear with it another Vault entry!

This time you witness the Man-at-Arms! One of the first soldiers of Man you will face and the first of which you will crush under your mighty heel!

Hey fellas, one more entry to the vault today, we've got Amaranth's archers! These guys are going to be a considerable threat in the backlines so make sure they dont get to ply their trade!

As always, take a look at the LIVE version - http://monsta.graphics/lordsofnether/archer.html

YourMaster
February 17th, 2018, 12:24
Nice. Not to be nitpicky, but his bracer is on the wrong side. Archers have them on the inside of their lower arm to protect their wrist from the bow.

DBlac
February 17th, 2018, 12:43
True, but thats why he has the leather gloves under the bracers as well. Mind you the straps of the bracers could potentially be an issue for the string, but theres a lot of other things that are sacrifces for the sake of style such as the cowl which would actually be terribly impractical for an archer both in obscuring vision and in being loose clothing thats in the way. Sometimes you have to make compromises, but i'll think about doing something extra on the left hand bracer when we're remastering the models post Kickstarter, thanks for that!

YourMaster
February 17th, 2018, 13:54
Great. So, this is the post-kickstarter deluxe edition list so far:

1) Goblin penis
2) Man at Arms buckler
3) Grindylow claspers
4) Archers bracers

hahah, that will be 19,99 launch day dlc :P

the man at arms buckler would kinda suit him but we already have several other characters centered around blocking and it would make things a bit too samey, plus hes basically a trumped up guard, not all that fancy.

what do you mean with grindy claspers?

YourMaster
February 17th, 2018, 14:06
ok

This. (https://www.google.com/search?dcr=0&source=hp&ei=50SIWsS8Bc_WkwWC44rYBw&q=claspers&oq=claspers&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l10.1227.2314.0.2520.8.8.0.0.0.0.115.624.5j 2.7.0....0...1c..64.psy-ab..1.7.621...46j0i46k1j0i10k1.0.vDpjIIDtvpY)

YourMaster

You can't deny those would look as good on the Grindylow as a buckler or a wooden roundshield on the man at arms.

Hello again everyone! This Saturday is a special Saturday, as it marks the end of the first batch of Vault entries! We have the big bad himself for you this time, Lord Mordred!

Now, many of you have likely seen Mordred before, but what do we know about him? Mordred is first and foremost, a Warlord,
leading his forces fearlessly into combat, cleaving enemies apart with the crushing weight of his blade and massive strength!
Most of his siblings favor melee combat, but Mordred truly excels at it, and to see his towering form moving through the battlefield is to witness
one's end in motion, more often than not. Donning the horns of the Dragon, an ancient symbol of war and strife among the people of Antioch,
Lord Mordred makes his intentions clear - to drive the world into a state of perpetual war, where strife rules all, as he sees it to be the natural
order of things.
Despite his ferocity and warlike mindset, Mordred is not easily angered or prone to rage unlike his brother - Belial. Instead, he is more often a calm
and collected commander, which makes the moments he unleashes his fury on the battlefield all the more imposing. Mordred's knowledge of war and battle
lends itself greatly to the benefit of Warrior type creatures, who will often find marked improvements in combat under his command!

As usual, make sure to check out the LIVE model! - http://monsta.graphics/lordsofnether/mordred.html

Now that we have finished with the Vault for the time being, we will make a sort of "State of Development" post in the coming week, to catch you guys
up to speed on what we've been doing, where we're at and how we're planning to proceed forward!

We look forward to speaking to you about it all and we hope you've enjoyed our little previews here! Thank you again for your continued support and appreciation, it really means a lot to us!
