Halo 4 Sangheili Soldier WIP by Guyver89 Halo 4 Sangheili Soldier WIP by Guyver89
This piece isn't finished as I'll be adding armor on the only visible arm and also a helmet.

This is what I believe the Sangheili(elites) who are aligned with Thel Vadam (arbiter) would look like in Halo 4 and not the elites who follow Jul' Mdama.

A side note, I really really hope the armor that the sangheili in Mdama's faction isn't the "retconned" elite armor for the new trilogy. I really hope if we do see Vadam's forces that they look more like the elites we see in either Halo 3 or Reach armor wise.

When it comes to Halo 4 designs for the elites I give an A++ out of 10 for the actual sangheili physiology and reverting back to the Halo 3 form of the elites. But with the armor for them I give a 4 out of 10. Just doesn't fit them at all.

It is possible that the storm faction Elites are a different subspecies of Sangheili.

There wouldn't be a subspecies for sangheili like the kig-yar. There was no full blown isolation on Sangheilios. It would be different phenotypes. Some Sangheili more scaley like how some humans are hairier then others, or have curly hair.

And some Sangheili probably have their mandibles placed further back than others, such as the Storm Sangheili.

The Visual Guide says that the armor 'Mdama's faction wears is based off Hesduros native armor.  So Vadam's faction probably wears their traditional armor. Hopefully anyway.

That was only for the Zealot class warriors though. It doesn't explain the minor and officer armors.

Hmm. The Guide often repeats itself for the armors or adds in new bits. Perhaps the armors are all derived from Hesduros armor, but the guide only puts it for one. 

Hell. That was a horrible way of saying it.

Just wished they didn't use said armor for the flashbacks that the beginning intro had where the covenant are killing civilians.

Then theres also the Halo Forward unto Dawn movie that had hesduros zealot elite in it also but its based back 20 to 30 years before the end of the war.

Yeah, but 343 did say they were for aesthetic reasons. Connect the movie to the game.

Nice hope this one is a Major cause I don't like Zealots being maroon or that ugly Storm color they used. Zealots are always gold lets keep it that way! :D

Don't get confused my oc has black as secondary color. Raptor's is tan. I know its hard to tell on the colors on Reach that's not our fault it's the guy who did the colors for it. Plus I don't like being compared to Raptor I've already come across 3 people saying that to me. Plus if Alpha the creator of this finds out I'm sure he would be pissed.

not really, i had my dude look exactly the same as raptor and i was in a game with a couple of the arbiter's friends and one of them was the voice of raptor, i can't remember his gamertag but i remember that he wasn't pissed, he didn't really care

Ya idk who does the voice of Raptor you have to ask Alpha that cause he's the one that put this whole series together and got people in there. I never do machinimas cause I don't have the tools for it like voice acting.

good work

and on Mdama vs Vadam, throw 343i into the mix and don't expect the results we want.
