They are not grayscale, and not just (though they are based on the current gryph)- i've tampered with quite several pixels there. Maybe i did desaturate them too much though.

I'll try to get the rest of the animations then sooner or later.

1. Complete set of attack animations, each 6-10 frames long, in each direction.
2. Complete defence animation, possibly in all directions.
3. If it flies - uhum - a full standing animation is needed.

And by the way, isn't that head and those legs just grayscales of the current Gryphon?
I lol'd.

WC variations only have:
1 Attack frame in all directions: North, South, Northeast, Southeast
2 defence frames
4 death frames in the style of the current WC's.
A standing anim in NE and SE direction.

Yeah, there's a significantly lower requirement for WCs, because there are simply SO MANY of them. Note, you only need standing anims/frames for NE and SE, not all four directions.

frankly a gryphon rider zombie would be more useful than just a lone gryphie (since those are used probably only in some campaigns, while riders are default mp units), think you could have a go at that?

Actually, I think the lone gryphon WC is more useful because you could simply say the rider fell off and use this WC for two different unit lines as opposed to one. But, really it is not our place to be saying what should and should not be made, as we are not regular contributors and have practically no say in the development of the game.

Both would be best. But I'm not sure that this base frame is up to scratch yet.

Tried tinkering with the base frame before going over to animations. This better?

Also yes, i thought the riderless gryph would be better to make, since 1) it can be said that the rider fell off 2) if it didn't, it would be easier to add on an already extant gryph corpse.
