This is an older piece, from a series of units based on the painting 'Coil' by Brom for Dark Age. My techniques will seem a little rougher than my more recent works, but this unit does have the advantage of being public, sculpted, and painted by the incomparable Jennifer Haley, and demonstrates how my work is being realized in three dimensions.
A little background: The Coil troops are one of the few ranged combat units in the army of the Forsaken, a pseudo-religious sect of humans abandoned on a colony world. The main weapon fires sawblades, and every trooper carries a spiked truncheon for back-up.
Armor components for the upper body were pretty much set in stone as they are derivative of the original work. For this particular unit (one of four), alterations or improvisations lie in the male sex of the character, the pose, lower body equipment, and primary weapon.
