Anasterian by Vaanel Anasterian by Vaanel
Justttttt finished my rendition of the High King of Quel'Thalas, Anasterian Sunstrider (from World of Warcraft).

I added his sword Quel'Delar, which was given to him by the Life-Binder.

Anasterian is a descendant of Dath'remar Sunstrider and the father of Keal'thas Sunstrider.

I really hope you like what I did! Enjoy!

All hail the king, baby!

This perfectly encapsulates Anasterian, you've truly done some remarkable work here.

The look of stern determination without becoming cruel is so perfect and canon. Meanwhile, he has Quel'Delar. I'd love to see a back view, given how long his hair was supposed to be, but this remains very well done.

Hey there,

Thanks a lot :)
Am happy you like that. 
Here is a video from my channel that shows the model from all sides and in animation:

Enjoy :)

Ahh, that was awesome, thank you.

It's definitely an awesome model. Blizzard could take some tips from you on how to conceptualise big name characters we only see in flashbacks! Right now the only Anasterian model we see is a plain Blood Elf with the Golden S4 armour on.

And how Felo'Melorn? Cool of course, but without the sword that legend would love to see it in your performance ..

Anasterian looks almost identical to what I would expect him to look like, very nicely done!
He strikes me as a person full of wisdom in this picture, you impress me with your detailed models Vaanel. :)

Wonderful job, Anasterian should have been designed better when he made his slight Cameo on thee Quel'delar questline
