New Dar-Koldor Wolf Soldier by LordFenrir New Dar-Koldor Wolf Soldier by LordFenrir
Doodled this little sketch yesterday during the game of Exalted.

I've been having a difficult time recently making the wolf armies of Fenrir's Dar-Koldor have a unique and strong iconographic look to their armour. While I liked the designs I did last summer, they seemed too similar to designs from Lord of the Rings, so I've been trying to come up with new designs. So the first thing I've done is think "how can I symbolise what Dar-Koldor and Fenrir represents in a unique way that looks both practical, arrogant, and frightening?" Easier said than done, but I doodled designs incorporating their dragon heraldry an their vulture heraldry, but nothing seemed to work for me. So after thinking long and hard about what would strike the most fear in the hearts of the Free Canids, the only thing that struck me as terrifying was...Fenrir himself.

So after working on sketches for his Secret Police, I decided to give Fenrir's infantry similar masks. While the Secret Police have steel and bronze versions of the masks, the infantry have dyed and boiled leather versions. I further made the mask into a full helmet, but the leather on the back is carved to resemble the hair on the back of Fenrir's head (though its a lot shorter than his really is).

Under the side view of the mask are several shield shapes. I'm not sure which ones work with these chaps, so that requires work.

Let me know how much they sare you/what ya think.

Cheers,
LordFenrir

Nice. He reminds me the characters from "Chronos Twin DX" ( Wiiware ).

It's really nice picture. And those shades. Woah. I see that I have a strong confidence. You are really good artist.

Whoa, I just love this one! The mask is really neat, and a neat idea. When I first saw this, I thought you'd redone the secret police at first, but I guess I was wrong, eh? I really think this is a neat idea, for his armies. It gives that "Evil" and "Sinister feel" since their faces cannot be seen.. He looks very fierce too. The mask design itself is really cool too, you did a good job on that. The rest of the armor looks quite nice as well, I especially like the bracers. As for the shields.. I like two and three the most. I've noticed a lot of Rhombus shapes in the armor, and I think one of those two would go best with it.

Thankies very much. I was leaning to the rhombus shaped shields meself, since I repeat the iconography a lot in the armour.

You're quite welcome~ And the rhombus would look best because it matches, yes.
