Cadian H.E. Trooper by SpOoKy777 Cadian H.E. Trooper by SpOoKy777
Cadian equipped with hostile environment gear

"Many worlds in the vast Imperium of Man boast conditions inimical to human survival,
yet are critically important due to the mineral wealth they contain or their strategic worth. Imperial forces fighting in these deadly warzones rely on hostile environment equipment to enhance their body armour to enable them to survive."

Is it me or it is a slight hommage-parody of Canada, this Cadia world?

The climate kinda canada-like as the flora, and some vague inspirations in the armies's clothes and all from canadian army, along industries.. its vague, but oddly faintly familiar to me as a 'quebie'

You know what I like most? How you just put this guy on a base, like one of the actual models. Brilliant.
Everything else is just good work all around too. The design is spot-on, and the shading is perfect.
Only thing I'd like to say is that the visor looks a bit dull, but that might just be personal preference. I think it'd look better if it'd have a glow to it. Think Fallout New Veagas NCR Rangers in black armor.

thx...I added the base at last minute, thought thats a nice touch :) Maybe iŽll rework the base rim, seems that i messed up the angle on the right side...and the black is overall a bit intense...

The visor is intentionally dull, from a realistic standpoint its just weird that a visor is glowing, despite the obvious cool look ;)

Yes, the angle is a bit off. I only notice it when I stare at it though, but, if you want to be a perfectionist about it you could rework that.

:XD: and yes, like I said, it's just personal preference. A non-glowing visor is realistic, but, we all know glowy things look awesome, especially if they're eyes of some kind.

Looks really great! The boots look a little flat, and he's a bit clean for me, but overall this is a wonderful job depicting the Emperor's Hammer! =)

thx :thumbsup:

I used normal human proportions, I believe thats why the boots look a bit odd, I noticed that also during the process...but its nearly the same size a standard army boot would look like...

That is fantastic! :wow:

I really like the texture and work you did on the armor. And a clever idea to keep a base in there. :)
