The game takes place in the Seven Hours War aftermath. Fighting against blood shedding synths and frightening aliens, Adrian Shephard has to struggle his way with his fellow comrades from the Phoenix Command, with the main objective of stopping the construction of a Combine Citadel. In his journey he will find what has happened to the world, six months after the Seven Hour War.

First version of the transhuman soldiers, or is this one fully alien?

Wow, this is awesome. Was there ever any official concept art of these, because I don't remember seeing any.

nope, it's based off our own concepts, strider concepts and some concept helmets.

I've liked you guy's work, and I know the people here don't like criticism and I will get voted down for anything, but I'm going to just throw it out there that I don't really like this model.

The design of it is original, and I like the head of it based off of that beta design, but he looks like a crab/lobster man or something. Maybe you guys should change up the design a bit, but the body looks kinda goofy. Head is fine.

Its the legs, arms, and lower torso that need some work on

As always, keep up the good work, hope everyone doesn't just vote this down because they'll vote down anything that isn't totally positive.

This is just IMHO

I'm not fan of this model as well. It just doesn't fit to the HL universe... The model itself is awesome, but it's definitely a bit out of place as for HL story.

We'll have to see it textured, but it looks similar enough in design to the other Combine Synths

Though it may, a texture can only go so far in aiding something that doesn't look right. I don't particularly like this either, but it's an interesting idea.

here's a message i have for the sugar dude and other ones:

i find it really stupid how you guys think this doesn't fit the HL universe. what makes a strider fit in? what makes a hunter fit in? what makes a dropship fit in? a mortar synth? a gunship? a crab synth? an advisor fit in? the combine have a HUGE variety of colors and shapes in their own army because they take creature from other planets and genetically enhance them. not a single creature they have looks the same, and some don't even look like combine at all. (see the hunter for instance).

just because we're a non canon mod we can't make our own twists of the combine? we need to stay strict to what valve has shown us on raising the bar and can't come up with our own stuff? before you answer this one, i'd like to remind you that this is even based on (various) concept arts by valve: old striders, old helmets, unused synth and so on.

our team has always worked hard on pleasing all the fans and listening carefully to criticism. remember when we posted our phoenix soldier and everyone hated it, so we remade it at least twice and showed you guys work in progress? remember when we posted a bunch of concept arts for the combine guns and we let you guys choose which one would be in the game? remember all the maps that have been reposted because they were re-worked based on YOUR criticism?

we CAN'T do this for everything. and we are not going to do this for this one. it has a cool design, it has a synth feel to it. what we're going to do right now is polish it a bit, detail it more and texture it. if you liked it, that's great! if you didn't, you better get used to it, because you'll see it a bunch of times in the game.

please avoid replying to this post, it will only clog up the comments section.

I really like this concept but I find it odd how it lacks any operable fingers aside from its thumbs :/ Least that's what it looks like to me. Ill be assuming that the fingers are flat against the armor plate over the hand / wrist area for now.

MenteR Aug 4 2011, 11:44pm replied:

i can see where you're coming from but how they can operate tools quite easily with their actual "hands". and those things in their hands aren't armor plates. they're flexible. sorta hard to know that when it's untextured though.

Awesome work.. But I always imaginated combine different just by thinking on Advisors... So I expected them to look more Alien... None the less awesome work... This model looks very great. I can't wait to see a fully textured version of it.
