Halo 4 Sangheili Officer by Guyver89 Halo 4 Sangheili Officer by Guyver89
A Sangheili Officer who fights for the Thel 'Vadam (Arbiter). This is what I picture Arbiter's forces to appear as if they were to ever to walk through the new "Halo 4 Aesthetic retcon." I'm pretty happy with the results, I can also change the color so the Officer could become a Minor (blue)

I seriously hope the elites we saw in Halo 4 aren't just the "status quo" appearance of the elites in the new trilogy. I'd like to think that Jul 'Mdama's forces were given hand me down armor that didn't need Huragok keep up to work. While Thel's forces kept their armor from the previous Trilogy because the UNSC gave them Huragoks in good faith of their peace treaty.

I might just work on grunts, jackals, Hunters, and other previous covenant forces appearances of those aligned with Vadam.

the armor is well detailed, everything is perfect, but his legs are too short

The elites in halo 4 should of looked something like this.

I was a little disappointed with the Elite's redesign in Halo 4, effectively due to the bulk of their new design which just doesn't lend itself to the nimble and impossible agility they demonstrated in Reach. Not to mention how intimidating they were. It was also the first game to make elites not only seem totally alien, but provide such a strong sense of malevolence behind it.

I see here that you maintained that motif, and I like it!

Yeah its a mix of Halo Reach's height and slender legs with Halo 4's head structure. After playing Reach and 4 back to back the AI of Halo Reach's elites are far more intelligent to Halo 4's but I guess a logical explanation is that Halo 4 only has religiously fanatical members in the faction we face so they are more gungho then tactical and smart. The only one who is opposite of the ground troops is Jul 'Mdama and he actually isn't religious at all he is only using that "mask persay to use the fanatics as a tool for his conquest of revenge against what humanity did to his family.

So the true sangheili in Halo 4 is really Jul 'Mdama.

Tell me, how does it feel if your god was killed by "an aging Spartan and his malfunktioning AI"?

Cool, a warrior for Thel. This is great, by the way. He has detailed armor, an awesome energy sword, and a perfect expression.

I have good news for you! The elites of halo 4 are basically like Islam's Al Queda and Christianity's west baptist church; they're extremist who think the arbiter is a dishonorable liar.

And they account for about 2% of the elites!
