Cool. One day I would like to do a goblin campaign. But I don't think I will find the time.
It is ok to correct me if my English is too bad.

i don't think theres enough difference between the goblin skirmisher and orcish archer. they look exactly the same. also, most units that have a bow and a sword hold a sword as there main weapon, not a bow. nice conversion from saurian to goblin on the hunter line though.

There's already a new orcish archer. It doesn't look like that anymore. People should really read the closed development forums more.

I like the saurian conversions, but you should probably redo the arms on the hunter and champion. They look kinda like someone grafted alien arms on the goblins.

A Goblin Warlord and a Dark Apostle, from scratch other than eyes.

pretty neat, impressive even considering a work from scratch.
Not flawless of course - the fact that they're so much bent backwards (upper side leaning left lot) looks very unnatural. Well the apostle can get away with it if we consider balancing a heavy weapon but still the head looks too far shifted left
consider giving him an elbow to his left (our left actually) arm, would look better with that arm a little longer and bent

I see what you mean, I'll try to make fixes for the goblin at least.

Anyway, two upgrades for the apostle, a swordsman and his upgrade, and a crossbowman and his upgrade.

will you be very mad if i take matters into my own hands for a second? try this with the apostle: moved head one pixel right, twitched a few pix in the arm

cutthroat looks fun (don't mind a few people saying not mainline quality, i bet some would), the archer looks a tad bored doesnt he..i think it's the fault of the empty hand

Hmm, that does look better, would you mind applying the same fixes to his two upgrades ?

i don't think any of the arms are round enough, and the dark cut throat's arm are a bit too skinny. the dark apostles and dark scytheblades need better posture too: they are still leaning back.

Some good visually design ideas here, a 10 minute edit could do wonders.
This image still needs some improvement (border still need some alpha antialixing, wapone could be better) but I hope it could help you to improve all the other ones.

Your unit perspective was wrong, units look at the SE (the horns or your units show this clearly, both start at the same height.

Did you make him from scratch ? Either way, really nice. I'll try and fix the horns and weapons on all of them next then.

Aye, and you're still pillowing. It's a hard practice to get off of. You also seemed to have multiple lightsources.

In your desert unit line your level 1 mage looks almost exactly the same as your level one fighter. Same head and the exact same pose except he is holding a want instead of a sword.
