I prefer the way the Sci-Fi channel (now SyFy) portrayed them as well. Fighting was done with swords and tech shields. They did not need to be armored in your way. He should look more the swordsman and less the riot cop.

Just one man's opinion

For some reason, I'm reminded of Halo more than anything.

Probably the helmet, I think.

How come I haven't seen this one till now? Wasn't it made way back when during the Dune Redesign phase on RN?

The song piece you linked was touched up for Dune 2000, calling it rise of the Harkonen [link]

Yeah, it was the last picture post in this thread as far as I know.
I like the music of all Dune games, so nostalgic :)

Pretty Awesome, like the empty feeling. Almost feels like a first few patrols on a new Colony or something.
I could also see this being like a news reel or something, that's maybe just me though

Wow. Random guy on the internet made a better uniform than the costume designers of a feature film and mini-series.

THIS is fucking awesome. It's not just the suit, the helmet and the gun. The pose, the feeling of emptiness in the desert, the strong colours. Actually, that's my only gripe with this thing: I just re-read the novel and I'm pretty sure the sky is mentioned as being black even in the middle of the day. Then again, a black sky would have looked much more boring that the strongly blue one here, and people have deviated much more from Frank's original work, so that's forgivable. Read that? There is now literaly nothing bad about this piece. It is a work of art, one of the best dedicated to Dune and certainly the best dedicated to the Sardaukar.

You just earned yourself another watcher, and I would love to see you do more work on Dune!

Gosh I wanna get better at speedpainting. I wanna be able to paint things digitally like this without worrying too much about the detail. I always get too caught up in details.

There is a great sense of heat here, if you will. It just looks hot an uncomfortable.
