    Pretty cool, Id prefer a dog head but it works well

  • blkdymnd

    yeah, the head doesn’t totally work for me, seems a bit off from the rest of the model. The rest of it looks fantastic though

  • supervike

    Interesting. I agree the head doesn’t work for me either.

  • Bombuli80

    I like the model but I don’t understand the third leg moved by the tail. I think a longer weapon would be better for a sniper

  • Morf

    I think the tail support is a brilliant idea for more stability and precision. I like the model a lot.

  • Bobaxur

    This is the first sculpt I did for Sapphire Wars.
    At this point, I can see why the helmet may look a bit odd on the prototype, but it makes more sense when related to Noh theatre traditions, more specifically Kitsune masks.
    Trust me on this 🙂

    • Veritas

      It’s not a mask. There’s an actual fox piloting that suit.

  • Yup, fox wearing fox mask. Shape of the helmet closely follows the skull of the creature inside, the same way a Predator’s does.

  • rogue

    Exactly! This is kitsune mask. It looks quite simple, but it should be. It will be great area for painters.
