Specialist Soldier by Shimmering-Sword Specialist Soldier by Shimmering-Sword
I have a few paper sketches and old designs lying around that I want to paint at some point, here's one of them :)
This soldier is primarily for coming up with more helmet designs, gotta have quite a few to go around for my universe. Had fun with triangles.
Full cover armored helmet with integrated optics sensors and communications. He has a light muscle suit under the BDUs and soft armor on his torso, neck, and one arm. A short barrel rifle with folding stock, helical mag and digital optic provide compact firepower. The muscle suit allows him to carry a much heavier loadout but I wanted to show something 'high speed low drag' :la:

"High Speed, Low drag." Grizzly Tank from Red Alert 2? XD
This is what we call a REAL flat-face my fellow Seekers fans.

That's fine, I don't think there's anything wrong with using "poses" :)

Very nice.

Have you ever considered the idea of creating one of your signature mech soldiers / warriors, albeit with a H.A.L.O. (not the game "HALO", but the "High Altitude - Low Opening" Special Ops definition) slant to it.

Would LOVE to see you fabricate something alongs the lines of the image located at the following link:

Thanks for your time.

Best wishes,

With invasion from orbit being the most common opener to battle, special forces that drop from orbit or extremely high atmospheric altitude will be there for sure. The Elementals come drop ready the way their shields function, maybe at some point I'll paint up some guys that use parachute.
