Cavalry sword animation
« on: January 17, 2013, 07:44:18 am »
I made this animation a while ago but since I only register on FSE forum recently I decide to re upload it again. This animation change the way sword is held on horseback to look more authentic, here are some screenshots :

That position must be painful to hold that sword. Maybe make the sword be held further away from the shoulders

Does it? It's held with the blunt side against the shoulder, which is in no way dangerous.

It is the correct way to hold sword while mounted as seen in the pictures below :











I hope this is enough to show what I mean :D

It'd be cool if they held out erected upwards when they upstab/upslash and their normal sword stance would look like the normal downstab with a sword.

I can do this animation and I have done similar before :

But regarding whether it is 'parade stance' or not, yes it is how sword is held during parade but also in battle. When command sabre à la main is given the sword is taken out and held in this position shown in the screenshot.
