Default New Pics of Shadowsun with Helmet On

Just in case anyone hasn't seen these... Much better than the older pics, IMHO.

I think they are from the German WD.

I lie the helmet a lot. Very unorthodox but cool. I wonder what the new drone is?

The helmet completes the suit better. I like it, and the white on black sceme is very nice. Kinda reminds me of my silver on black sleath suits. I really like the sketches of the vespids weapons. I wonder if they are any different, since the pictures show one having a slightly larger canister on the bottom (more powerful?). I'll probably have the helmet on Shadowsun when I get her.

That would be Shadowsun's Command Link Drone.

The tiny munition had passed through the vehicle with such speed that everything within the hull not welded down had been sucked out through the exit hole. Including the crew. We never identified their bodies, for all that remained of them was a red stain upon the ground, extending some twenty metres from the wreck.”

i do agree. The body is all stream lined then the helmet looks just like a hood not a head protector. also i think the weapons are stronger. i think the basic weapon is str 3 ap 3 template.

I think the helmet looks awesome, I prefer it to the stupid hair thing.

When I saw that helmet, I kept thinking of the helmet Bleh had to wear in Drawn Together...

Is that a special character or a conversion?

Like Bleh, it's a 'Special' character...


(In other words, it's a new figure from the upcoming Codex, to which I have a similar level of disdain to the one I possess towards the other new metal minis shown so far - but much less than the utter distaste I reserve for Aun'va...)
