Since back at the ages of the great inquisition and crusades Stormcrows have been the empires assault teams. Their necrophagous appeareance goes along with their infamity for being conscienceless slaughterers, however, in the Empire they are seen as the embodiment of true honorable and righteous warriors – and nobody would dare to dispute their position.

Their equipment has changed during the times, but they always kept their faces hidden behind the crow shaped mask.
The northern divisions equipment has been specialized to survive multiple days outside in harsh environmental conditions, keeping the best possible balance between mobility and firepower.
Thick fur coats serve as main protection against the cold. More ingenious however is the beak, mounted on the gorget it contains an air heater and filter, additionally protecting from cold air, and, of course, from airborne biological and chemical agents.
Alongside protection of pivotal parts, the cuirass is designed to support the spine and take the massive recoil of the Leopold-Friedrich Revolverbeil - A devastating multifunction weapon, which unifies the advantages of halberds and cannons.
Once brought in position, the gunner can fire up to 8 times in a row, either with armor breaking or explosive 14.5x114mm rounds. But even with their ammunition depleated, a good positioned slash with the blade still is a considerable threat to any charging enemy.
In times of need, for „difficult work“ or as lifesaver during the reload periods, each unit is additionally equipped with two incendary grenades.

Awesome series, I especially like how the fur is executed.

sakhart (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/15/2015 02:15

Textures are amazing, the details are incredible... but to my eye the face looks a bit supressed around the beak so started wandering what kind of a face can be inside that helmet...

MrSkeleton (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/22/2014 12:02

god damn this is ridiculous

Rainpowtato (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/20/2014 00:36

Wow. That's epic

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/16/2014 01:49

Sigh! Lovely metal work!

rhlstudios (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/15/2014 12:52

This is unbelievable O___O My goodness!!

Nevercreature (Level 9 Whale Shark) @ 9/15/2014 09:24

Terrific. Simply terrific.

Pixelart_kid (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/15/2014 07:02

Is pretty good!!

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 9/15/2014 02:52

As I said the other day on twitter, the design is too cool and the whole sprite is very well done. I think it deserves to be one of the top 10 of this month so far.

EvilEagles (Level 5 Detective) @ 9/14/2014 22:51

Lots to be learned from the way you handled metal and fur textures there. Absolutely gorgeous!

andrae (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/14/2014 21:28

Your pieces are always amazing. Those metal and and fur looks very good.

|||| (Level 9 Orchid) @ 9/14/2014 15:21

That's my favorite piece of yours I think (besides the complete older mock-up; look forward to the possible new complete mock-up).

Really like the description too. Interesting how the beak functions.

You should just change the word movability into mobility.

FishyMint (Level 2 Pufferfish) @ 9/14/2014 14:48

High quality stuff!

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 9/14/2014 14:31

Really cool stuff!

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 9/14/2014 13:56

I don't even know what to say.... This is pure pixel greatness!

Dokitsu (Level 9 PS1) @ 9/14/2014 13:40

that's rarely amazing (in a good way).
this reminds me the rare characters of the final fantasy sagas.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 9/14/2014 13:26

textures.. there are so many and they are all well done! Great colors and value as well.

Luneder (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/14/2014 12:55

This is pretty good I might have to try doing a figure this size and detail.

Arkan85 (Level 9 Rear Admiral) @ 9/14/2014 12:38


CobaltHex (Level 3 Chupacabra) @ 9/14/2014 12:23

this looks absolutely amazing 

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 9/14/2014 11:54

The knees are really outstanding. 

Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/14/2014 11:37

The fur and metal textures are amazing! I like how you did the shading on the knee armor.

Mr Special (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/14/2014 11:28

This just outdoes everything I've seen in a long time. Fantastic work.

Bark Snarly (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 9/14/2014 09:46

Well this is just awesome, really REALLY love the shading on both the fur and the metal. Great colour choice and concept too.

Only thing I could possibly crit is the metal flap that extends down over his thigh on his right leg looks like it's part of the coat rather than sitting on top of it. Everything else is flawless as far as I'm concerned!
EDIT: Actually the green highlight on his left shoulder seems to stand out a bit too much too just because it's quite a lot brighter than the nearest blue colour and the highlight is quite small.

CraftyPixeI (Level 1 Intern) @ 9/14/2014 09:45

- Amazing details : O -

Chuchuchuso (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/14/2014 09:36

This is amazing.

jtfjtfjtf (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/14/2014 09:29

Very thorough concept and nice execution! Is the face mask independent from the gorget in the pixel version?

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 9/14/2014 09:04

Great work!
Though I thought of plague doctor, when saw the preview.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/14/2014 09:02

The right leg looks superb when compared to the older version. Really juicy metal texture too.
