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 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.

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"

This is amazing guys, I'm really liking your work! I'd like to see some kind of remainder of the Combine Guard in this mod, but this comes very close!

MenteR Feb 9 2011 replied:

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.

Velancious Feb 9 2011 replied:

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.

PeacefulPatriot Feb 9 2011 says:

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.

and that big arm has a shield/bayonet to melee the player when they get too close?

Sadly, since the Geth of Mass Effect, I am kind of unconcerned regarding synthetic bipedal human-like designs. Those blew hard.

Jeffman12 Feb 10 2011 says:

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?

Velancious Feb 11 2011 says:

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?

Claws? The robot is going to use weapons, not melee/fighting.

Velancious Feb 12 2011 replied:

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.

That's epic! You could make one of its legs normal or with growing organic material instead of 2 metal legs, just to look a bit different...

ha superb you should equipt them with arm cannons that fire plasma rounds and can switch to a missle launcher that would be epic but i cant wait to see these"guns"

Duke_Nathaniel Feb 19 2011 says:

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.
