I don't think anyone currently sells Torque3D ready characters, but you can use general 3D characters in Torque with a few minor modifications maybe.

There is software available that helps you greatly creating characters, but the good ones cost some money, like Mixamo for example.

If you don't want to bother with that, you could ask a professional artist how much he wants for exporting a character for you, but you usually have to ask them, they will not come to you.

Thanks for the reply. My artist decided to take a different job. Hard to find someone that can do this. I don't mind paying for a reskin of something just need to get in contact. I have sent some requests but no one has got back to me yet.

Looking at Mixamo, don't see a price on it. Have you used that for your games?

Any halfway skilled artist should be able to do that, all you need to do is have a character with animations, which then can be imported into Torque, the only conversions needed is the Torque specific node setup, so the engine knows how to handle, LOD levels and such, the animations will then be assigned in the engine through Torquescript. Once you have the character ready, you can even do the conversion yourself, it is not that hard.

Mixamo is a subscription model software, see their plans: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html
It is quite expensive and I have no idea how it works, since I prefer open source software, but I know this is something professionals use. You can also search the market for cheaper less complicated software, there may be a bunch of them out there.

Turbosquid has one.

and Arteria 3D has a bunch but I don't see the OBM Base or World at War one's, you could contact the owner.

The Arteria animations can only be used with their characters legally but the animations with the soldier from TurboSquid have no stipulation. It says there is no animations with her but there is.
