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.

Awesome! Didn't think I'd see that, I was always interested in it's concept. But the arms, legs and tone seem odd.

should it a more menacing look?

MenteR Feb 9 2011, 5:28pm replied:

it's our own redesign of the synth, plus you'll meet many of them, so they have to look like common enemies, not bosses.

but they're already pretty damn menacing since they're like 2,7 meters tall.

So will there be these guys and the other combine soldiers you made (the ones w/ swordfish rifles), or did you cut these?

It won't look exactly as the original references, that's because we're doing some changes or redesigning it.

It happened to most models we "recreated"

the hands were re-made by the combine so they could handle human guns in extreme situations. it's a prototype soldier, after all. it ain't made to be fancy.

So is it a human Synth, or some sort of enslaved creature? The Combine Guard I remember had a creepy human face in the armor. Are you gonna do something similar?

I don't like the combine metal and it wouldn't really work well with the color scheme which was very well established anyways.

I think the armor pieces might look cool with the glossy combine gunmetal that all of their stuff is made out of. Give it a more threataning look, and make it look more like a combine creation.

Robotic arm looks kinda tooney. I suggest more organic compenents to compensate.
Maybe some crab looking armor hunks on it, but not as big as the other, of course.
Also, the armpit should have a visible joint because it otherwise implies its armor is a fleshy mass instead of synthetic chitinous armor.

The 'hips' bother me, but I think they could only be fixed by deleting and starting over so as to not make them look like a mass of magic spaghetti. Everything else is perfect.

Also, that comment about the geth, why even post if you're not going to say anything pertinent at all? How does that help this project, why does it matter in judging this creation?

Actually now that I noticed it, the hands are quite weird. Maybe add robotic claws instead?

A few bits of the blue Combine metal armor won't hurt on it's shoulders and other areas. Maybe those areas can deflect some damage if shot there?

I kinda put that the wrong way, I meant claws as in just elongated/sharpened fingers.

If you had elongated fingers you could still hold a gun.

Awesome to the max. The hands could use some more of a combine look, with some unnecessary joints and maybe some pointyness. They look more man-made now.
Maybe if you made em like skeletal hands? with just the palm "bones" reaching the fingers from the wrist. And the stronger hand's wrist seems a bit frail to handle heavy weaponry? Otherwise it looks like Valve made it.
