Dies 5th gen Combat FOILs by VulnePro Dies 5th gen Combat FOILs by VulnePro
I've been wanting to do some Theos stuff in monochrome for awhile and these two sleek new FOILs are the first of more to come.

Dies Deca-Daemos CAV FOIL & Dies Herzin-Flüg CAV FOIL

These are both 5th generation FOILs in the design evolution of these creatures. This will be the final generation of FOILs produced before Polemos is thrown into chaos due to the Siege of the Black Son event.

Both of these Dies (pronounced deese) machines are sporting covered armor on the legs and bicep/shoulders which give the machines a more slimmed look. This pair were designed for speed and dueling and thus are light CAV (cavalry) models. The Herzin-Flüg (the machine on the right) has multiple optics in it's forward faceplate and the head, though appearing to be a fixed model, actually pops out and forward for some side to side movement. Again FOILs don't require head movement due to multiple optics on the machines but often they do anyway, a vestige of their human designers anthropomorphism.

Initially done in grayscale from two blown up rough concept thumbs-

-and converted to RGB. I might end up doing some full color variants of these two in the future but for now they're getting the sepia treatment. There are some more FOILs pending so stay tuned. Oh, also should note, there is new stuff in scraps too and more pending.

Thanks, glad you dig em overall.

Aye, the feet are much an aesthetic choice as I view this project with a dash of fantasy. Giant mecha push the limits of believability regardless of how you approach them so it's best to keep that in mind. Still I try to create rules in the story and setting that allow me to get a little wilder with the look of the designs and keep them interesting.
