    War, Horseman of the Apocalypse[/align]

    Just, y'know. A heads up that I haven't been doing nothing. Learning the editor and the previewer and working on boss patterns (Tartarus is getting some new stuff so he's not completely fucking boring) and rewriting Survival and making Apollo useful. The pretty individual up there is War, the second Horseman fight. The Horsemen will be replacing the last four waves of Survival (or at least, the last five, with the final "wave" being GOTB if there's a strong enough showing for his continued presence).

    The Horsemen of the Apocalypse, as of now, are elite Black Ops Operatives, and will consist of themed bossfights. They're based on being "super" variants of the player classes:
    • Conquest, the Marksman
    • Pestilence, the Chemical Expert
    • War, the Technician
    • Famine, the Medic
    • The Headless Horseman, the Infested Colonist Yes, this is Bob.
    • Death, the Commando

    As for the rest of the bosses, I'm aiming to make them much more like Cronus, where there's an actual attack pattern and involves a lot more than just "run for your life and shoot it when you can".

    So, yeah. That's what I've been doing. Inquiries and comments welcome.

    I've also been very quiet. That's the reason for this preview - to show that I have indeed been spending my time wisely.

    Good. I was aiming for "a really suped up viking", but ended up not using the Viking base model because it looked too cramped/similar. Spartan Company works because, hey, flamethrower arms.

    BADUMP!

    Please approve of said models great creator.

    Implementing the medic's specifically should help fix its model glitch right now and get the new model in (2 birds with 1 stone). Ty

    Uh... hate to break it to you, but the whole "four horsemen" thing was dropped and will be held over for NOTD2 and its Survival mode.

    Sorry, Dogg. Survival's got its own shindig right now, it doesn't need to be remade into something else. Best to just leave the Four Horsemen and their shit to NOTD2 so it's got notable differences.

    Could just make a "Boss Bash" mode, in which you end up fighting boss after boss after boss in a confined space starting from Easy Co to Alpha Co to Apollo Sec to Survival, then the four horsemen, and then the this-isn't-even-my-final-form-boss becoming a large Dr. Freeman with a laser rifle.

    Because, you know. Some people remember getting chased out of the lab by a laser rifle wielding doctor.

    If anything, that could be a 5th game mode with its own exclusive character.

    The last four to five waves of survival? Will the order they appear be random so it adds an element of surprise?

    They might've. But they're not happening, so.

    In NOTD 2 my plan is to have them show up every 10 waves and be Survival-specific bosses.
