    Shadow Fiend: Tichondrius? Firelord, recolored black

    nope there are 3 fields in the world editor for the 3 main colors

    red, blue and green which have a maximum number of 225... i think when they are at max the unit has a normal texture but if they are to 0 the units texture becomes black

    slardar's texture is too blue because the red field is lowered

    Shadow Fiend is totally a customization of the Firelord model though:


    (and the arcana uses this concept)

    Possible solution to foreigners issue
    In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

    Wow, it really HAS been a while since I played WC3. I don't even remember there BEING Night Elf dragon units.

    I should probably do something about that.
