Halo 4 Helm Redesign Soldier by Guyver89 Halo 4 Helm Redesign Soldier by Guyver89
Original for Comparison --> [link]

So yeah the Soldier helmet is an odd one to me but my only big gripe with it was that the visor is too damn small. Open it up and the helmet would be fine. Perhaps make the forehead area bigger and slim down the jaw line. Plenty of Halo 4 helmets like to go for the large jaw line trying to imply a "manliness" to them.

My new redesign makes the Soldier Helmet formidable (More Scary then the Raider helmet.) as it gives a menacing glare with the visor. The rest of the soldier permutations is definitely questionable though especially the chest armor being way smaller then any other chest piece. Which many fans ask how the armor could contain the microfusion reactor inside it. Then the shoulder pieces not matching the design of the rest of the armor permutations.

In the end as I've stated several times now is that the original design was an okay helmet design and did look like it fit inside the Halo Universe it only had 2 things that I though were wrong in appearance.

Might be a while, the Macbook I had the file on is FUBAR and its only on a external hard drive right now which is only formatted for Macs so I cant see anyway to retrieve the files to my PC.

Yeah I was disappointed with the chest. I also don't like it how they have the names "Soldier", "Warrior", and "Warmaster". They are pretty ambiguous and redundant.

This is great looking, it'd be interesting to see redesigns of the Defender and the Ranger helmets too.

The Ranger helm will need a lot of work, god is that thing ugly!

Anyways, looks good, I like how it keeps the a lot of the original design features, while looking more like a proper Halo helmet!

Agreed the Ranger helmet is the abomination of abominations, nothing about it signifies that it is a Halo helmet let alone a protective helmet. The only thing about the Ranger permutations that was done right was the beautiful chest piece.

And even then, the chest piece could use a little work.

I haven't seen it used even once in Matchmaking, at least the Defender has a fast growing crowd of users (though I don't know why).

It does indeed.

I figure that Guyver probably has already planned on redesigning the two helmets I mentioned, but I might take a crack at them, though I don't know if I'll post them.

I like Halo 4, and I like the direction that 343 is taking the series (though the ending does make me wonder how Halo 5 and 6 are going to play out), I feel that they may have overdid the armor selection just a little bit since there are a lot of armors that are designed with the same function and basic look, and there are some permutations that make me wonder who approved of them.

I also think the FOTUS should have been called the Knight(after the Promethean unit it resembles) and be designed without the spike/horn/plume, instead of being made as a non-canon carry on of Bungie's unicorn gag. The Oceanic would be better without the old diver helmet bars over the visor, giving it a modern deep dive helmet appearance.

I've seen a couple of players use it, but only a few. Seriously, is it that hard to find someone who could design decent, Halo helmets and armor that resemble previous canon? The Defender isn't too bad, at least by Halo 4 standards. By Reach and Halo 3 standards, that armor is godawful though.

Anyways, I'd love to see your redesigns of the Defender and Ranger. Anyways, you are right on both counts about the armor, having a Promethean-esque helmet in MP would be baws. Anyways, I was thinking, maybe the guy who was making the Oceanic was a Bioshock fan? I mean, it does look a little like a Big Daddy helmet. Also, speaking of bad helmets, the Locus doesn't belong in Halo canon. That thing looks.....odd.
