As a follow-up to this thread (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=86238) ...

Thanks to sci-fi2 on GTF for the heads-up (http://ina-community.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=144270) that there is some Unreal Warfare material on the website of James Green (http://mrgreen.com/), who left Epic in June (http://www.voodooextreme.com/comments.taf?postID=16771). I hope James didn't violate an NDA by "leaking" this.

In the "3D" section of the site you find quite a few images of the UW soldiers and even motion capture animated videos!

Here are some to water your mouth (click for full size):

A Soldier: http://mrgreen.com/images/models/cog_soldier_render_sm.jpg (http://mrgreen.com/images/models/cog_soldier_render.jpg)

An Officer: http://mrgreen.com/images/renders/cog_officer_sm.jpg (http://mrgreen.com/images/renders/cog_officer.jpg)

A General: http://mrgreen.com/images/models/cog_general_render_sm.jpg (http://mrgreen.com/images/models/cog_general_render.jpg)

A Turret: http://mrgreen.com/images/renders/turret_sm.jpg (http://mrgreen.com/images/renders/turret.jpg)

There's some more stuff, browse around yourself a bit:

Those look like just about the kind of stuff you see in UT unless they're talking individual finger modelling.
Thse must be too old. Even the shots of the model from the Unreal engine press (like almost a year back) release look way better than this.

Technically the models are far from final. If you look for example at this image (http://mrgreen.com/images/general1.jpg) you see that the polycount is actually pretty low; lower than what you'll see on the Atlantis crew in U2. By the time UW will be released (2003) the standard polycount will be a lot higher. These models will get some serious polishing til the game is out. Higher polycount, mo-cap animation, fancy material and particle effects, ...

However, the point is, that I bet dollars to donuts that concept-wise these figures are more than just a tech demo. I think they are actual Unreal Warfare figures. We'll see these soldiers, officers and generals appear in UW. And we'll see manned turrets. Looks pretty cool to me. :)

Akuma, wanna bet against it? ;)

Actually I'm not much interested in UW since I'm essentially an SP lover. I wonder if they can try to have a story-type campaign in such a game (MMP)

Those graphics look like something from an improved UT game engine. Im sure those are unfinished models.

Note that all of the thumbnails have been blurred and now link to this page: http://mrgreen.com/removed.htm

Thanks for the confirmation that these ARE indeed UW characters, Epic. :p :D ;)

It's nothing to do with 'fun', it's about people judging the hypothetical game from old renders of early models with old skins holding old guns.

They were for a tech demo, so don't base your speculation on game content on those images :)

Besides, the entire fun of buying and playing a game i in discovering the new stuff for yourself. A few publicity pics n' flics here and there to tantalize are good, but not if damn pirates are going to rip chunks from various builds and put them up on show.

Hehe ... if this was only for a tech demo, then why the big deal? Nowhere on Green's site did it say that these are UW models. :D ;)

I didn't hear any negative comments about the models, except people pointing out that they are rather low poly. But everybody is aware that these are very early state. I looked at them as concept art, rather than actual in-game content. And I liked them a lot. *shrug*
