Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II boasts a unique three-team symmetry and a myriad of colorful characters to promote exciting, strategic, and fun gameplay. It features several game modes, each requiring its own special brand of cunning to master. Do battle on a tropical island for control of bountiful treasure. Appease your gods by spilling the blood of your enemies deep within a Mayan temple. Conquer your foes by taking control of precious badlands territory. But most importantly, have FUN!

Welcome newly promoted PVKII Authorized Creator Pixenal! He's already put together some great progress on assets and brought them into Source. Take a look below, and be sure to leave a comment below and in the Official PVKII Forum Dev Journal.

I'm currently remaking the Heavy Knights secondary sword, here are some work in progress shots of its development so far:
(I'm currently in the texturing stage)

Highpoly stage:

Here was Pixenal's applicant challenge! A pirate themed prop that could be placed in tw_temple, act as a territory, or work as cover from range attacks.

Early project wip, in the highpoly stage at the moment, also I plan on adding a Calico Jack style lock on the front:

What would make this article infinitely better is a before + after of the old models beside the new. I love PVK2 but I haven't played in a while. I don't remember what these models look like, and I suspect even active players aren't looking carefully at the sword or gold chest.
