Out with the Old
As part of an ongoing process of improving the game, several models are getting an overhaul. There are a few sculpts and concepts that I am not ecstatic over and if I don't love it, how can I expect you to? The first revision is for the Thonian Strike Guardian. The old concept was nice but a little too bulky for a faction and a unit that is built on mobility. The nice thing about working digitally is that no work is ever really lost or wasted. The old version of the Guardian will show up at some point, but not in the current slot.
The new Guardian is sleeker and more badass overall. Defending Thon and her sister-Starlight is a demanding gig. The poses are similar with a few corrections prepping him for prototyping.

They look great.

It looks great, my only thought is why such a bulky backpack? It seems like those top pieces jutting out would cause not only mobility and sight issues, but kinda adds bulk to a unit that is otherwise sleek.

The backpack is a Jet Pack that grants them the Airborne Skill. They can move twice as far as normal. It also houses a Recall Marker so they can be teleported to and from the battlefield.
