Well the OP screenshot looks like we'd have bare bones data; just not the stats or spells hooked up. It's better than just assets, especially if they hook up all the relevant sound files at the very least.
This model doesn't include selection sphere and attach points.
doesnt make me happier. It still a bug. The models are ugly! Blizzard firstly made Orc Heroes, then Human Heroes, when they start running out of time they made night elf heroes and when there was a 27 minutes left before the deadline they made Undeads and everything else! screw this

They are not ugly, they are simply from another time. Warcraft 3 was the greatest game ever made, but it's past it's prime as you have mentioned.
He is actually talking about the few HD models in the patch.
ye the HD models suck except the human paladin, water elemental, phoenix and orcs (so the total of 7). I mean wtf look at this UglyKnight (that one uses *HD* variant of dk model) on screenshot, and the resolution of it's frostmourne textures and then compare to the high fidelity of Far Seer.... the UD was my fave race in WC :/
The farseer got remodeled wolf, shield, also improved attack animation. And DK just normal maps baked with some software for kids like this: http://www.crazybump.com/
Here is another bug with Archmage's tail particles: the huge square shadows, when archmage moves.
Is the patch on the PTR then? Because I can't wait to see these.
Yes, you can download the patch already. But the server is still offline.
Unfortunately, you might be asked to authenticate which obviously does not work with offline servers.
But we can just export the models and throw them into a sc2map-dependency-folder and watch them with the editor's "browse" (enter "browse" into editor's console) window. All wc3 assets start with the same prefix, so you can just filter for m3 and scroll down to the war3 assets.
We expected models of the same quality, i would be ok with copy Pasted textures for creeps, but for heroes is not acceptable, is even worse if the hero on question is Arthas, the most Famous Blizzard Character, my favourite one... And lazy ass Blizzard makes him a copy pasted model from wc3... U fking kidding me?
Exactly this. We cannot demand something, let it be 6-10 models but with the same high quality.
And there are a shitton of bugs with shadows, aura animation cycles (unholy aura and frost armor models jerk, skipping few miliseconds of animation), the potm/tyrande doesn't have arrow model on bow, whoever knows what else. Funny enough Traysent said something like : "I'm sure there is no bugs, whenever blizzard make something it's perfect" on the stream video :)))
Damn, i even dont mind to pay for wc hd assets like 30-40$,
for example make the Legacy of the Void Mapmaker Edition for an extra cost to buy
and after that they might use those assets themselfs to create warcraft 3 HD remake. I bet the pro players like Grubby, Fov, Lucifer, Moon, Ted, Tod, etc will play it 24/7 instead of SC2. Making shit happens at minimum expanses
Not trying to ruin the mood here, but I think it was fairly obvious from the beginning that the WC3 model pack was never a really high priority thing for Blizzard, but much rather a nice to have bonus.
I think we should try to be happy with what we've got rather than complain about what we don't have. Their modelers are probably fairly busy with HotS and LotV right now.
That said, its still only a PTR, so those bugs may get fixed before official release.
