Trond in Battle Suit by hauke3000 Trond in Battle Suit by hauke3000
UPDATE: Added some details to the feet and leg joints.
This is another concept of a character for my Whalewars project. It is a battle suit for the evil Trond aliens. I like it except for the feet. I might redo them. However I will work on some other units of the Trond army first.

Trond Battle Suits: The battle suits were created especially to combat the thread of the Whale-Human Alliance. A Trond in a battle suit reaches the about the same height as an infantry whale allowing the Tronds to fight on equal ground. Powerful force fields offer protection against most weapons but even more importantly protect the pilot from the psychic assault of a whale on the pilots mind. This means a Trond pilot can always split different tasks of operating the suit between his two brains. This gives the suits an extremely high reaction time in combat and also allows them to fire at multiple targets in different locations at the same time.
However the shields offer no protection from the powerful telekinetic blasts some whales can produce. The suit has a variety of energy weapons and missiles against both human infantry and whales in exo suits. A powerful jump pack lets it jump up to 150 meters.

Trond huh? I like your vision man. Mech/Mecha 's are pretty darn popular now days but you make it look original and unique. What tools do you use? I ask this question to everyone whom art/style I like because I want to know what tool does it take to achieve a master piece like this one... or what skill for that matter. 10q in advance! ;)

Very interesting! I like the torso and up from the design but I'll agree with you there on the feet .. they seem too sleek but another thing is the leg joints, they seem non functional if you know what I mean, it does not look like they could bend or distribute weight at all.

Imagine yourself this: what would happen if your exosuit fired its guns? from what I can make out of it it would probably topple over. But other then this the details are nice and I like the overall design. Well done! :)

Thanks. Yes the upper part is definitely nicer then the lower part. I like chicken walkers though. But yes the joints in both the feet and the legs still need some work. Right now I am more interested in getting the general design of these guys right though. I will get back on the functionality later.

chicken walkers are something of a favourite subject for me :) Functionality usually takes a back seat when it comes to fantasy design but if it looks like it would work then it's good enough for me! :)

Always enjoy your updates on this. The Trond exosuit looks really nice. I actually don't think the feet are that bad in design at least. Overall, and as ever with your works, I think this is looking excellent. Keep it up! :)

Thanks for following my updates. I think the overal shape of the feet is o.k. but they need to be a little bit more segmented to allow realistic movement.
