The second thing we will do is change the models of your hero, so open malvack.ini (or however the ini of your hero is named) and delete everything between "SelectPortrait/ButtonImage" and "#include ..\..\..\includes\StunDrawModuleSmall.inc" /"; ***DESIGN parameters *** "/"Side = Angmar".

The last 2 modules can be uncommented to have an extra effect.

Notice that in the code appears a lot the phrase #(MODEL), we will need to change this in order to make it work. Remember the createaheromodels.inc file? Well, in it every CaH type has this part that reads "ModelAnimationPrefix" we need to copy the prefix of the CaH hero that we want and use it to overwrite #(MODEL) in the above code.

If you run the game now, you'll find out that your hero is equipped with everything, and I do mean everything. He will have all the shoulder protections, all the swords, shields, boots, and so on. All of these things are known as Subobjects; in order to choose what subobjects we want to see, we have to know which ones we don't want to see. To do this, we need the following line of code:

              
Code

Behavior = SubObjectsUpgrade ModuleTag_ShowTheHero
    TriggeredBy        = Upgrade_ObjectLevel1
     HideSubObjects =
End


With this we tell the game what SubObjects to hide when our hero reaches the Upgrade_ObjectLevel1 (spoiler alert: he will achieve it as soon as he is recruited thanks to the experiecelevel.ini entry that we added a few steps ago). Now we need a list of subobjects, to know the names we will put in the HideSubObjects part. From createaheroweaponupgrades.inc I made the following list:

Dwarves:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Based on that list, I created these entries in malvack.ini in order to hide everything but the things that I actually want to show up.

              
Code

Behavior = SubObjectsUpgrade ModuleTag_ShowTheHero
    TriggeredBy        = Upgrade_ObjectLevel1
     HideSubObjects = AXE_01
     HideSubObjects = SWRD_05
     HideSubObjects = FireBrand
     HideSubObjects = FireBrand_FX01
     HideSubObjects = SLDR_01
     HideSubObjects = SLDR_02
     HideSubObjects = SLDR_04
     HideSubObjects = SLDR_05
     HideSubObjects = HAIR_00
     HideSubObjects = HLMT_01
     HideSubObjects = HLMT_02
     HideSubObjects = HLMT_05
     HideSubObjects = HLMT_06
     HideSubObjects = Shld_01
;     HideSubObjects = Shld_02
     HideSubObjects = Shld_03
     HideSubObjects = Shld_04
     HideSubObjects = BOOT_00
     HideSubObjects = BOOT_01
     HideSubObjects = BOOT_02
     HideSubObjects = BOOT_04
     HideSubObjects = BOOT_05
     HideSubObjects = GNLT_00
     HideSubObjects = GNLT_01
     HideSubObjects = GNLT_02
     HideSubObjects = GNLT_04
     HideSubObjects = GNLT_05
     HideSubObjects = Belthronding
     HideSubObjects = Gurthang
;     HideSubObjects = WestronSword
     HideSubObjects = TrollBane
End


Notice how I commented a couple of entries, that is because I want my hero to show up with both the WestronSword and Shld_02. If this list isn't enough (a.k.a. your hero still shows up with unwanted subobjects) here's a huge list of CaH subobjects taken from some LUA script. Read it carefully:
