Shield and Sword: Sangheili Designs (1 of 2) by LeviWasTaken Shield and Sword: Sangheili Designs (1 of 2) by LeviWasTaken
"No longer are the Ghosts a bulbous pink things zinging around and blowing up seconds later, this is a craft that has been improved by the old Sangheili arts - the arts that have been slowly re-emerging since the Great Schism with the Covenant.

And these old traditions of craftsmanship are being applied to everything. The Sangheili have had to start re-learning all their old knowledge, since as a species, they now stand on their own, out from under the Prophet’s control (and also the services and resources that the Covenant provided)."

-------

This is a sketch from the latest Shield and Sword update that has been posted, imagining through art and text what Halo 4 might be like if I designed. See and read a bunch more about it here:

i personally think the sword should be normal, its a traditional sangheili made weapon.

The sword has gone through a few different versions in the games already, actually. But regardless, that sword up there isn't meant to replace the standard Plasma Sword - it's something like a "Plasma Dagger", another smaller variant like those seen in Reach assassinations. They would still have the normal plasma swords as well.

I really like this. I've also tried to imagine what Sangheili technology looked like before the Covenant.

I definitively love how ya designed the armor and the vehicles here really. Gives them a more unique personality in the Sangheili's culture without the use of the others...(Especially the Prophets 7_7;;)

I be surprised if ya do end up at 343 if ya keep up this awesomeness :3

I defenitley agree with what Gideon says down there.

Also, I think I'd put some sort of protective glass around the Spectre's driverseat.

That's a good idea. Maybe just a visible shield.

Probably not really the Sangheili's style.
Remember also that all Elites have personal energy shielding, so such a thing isn't so necessary for them.

About the main article, I am satisfied with the fact that the majority of the elites are allies unlike what some did...

I grew up with the original Halo Trilogy, and that makes me hope that the ghosts are still pink. It wouldn't be the same otherwise.

I too grew up with the original trilogy, but these aren't the same ghosts. In the next level, you'll actually see the remnants of the Covenant, who's equipment looks practically identical to what we are familiar with. :)

Well it's still a Ghost and not some ultra light tank or something.

I don't actually care how 'much' we see him - as long as he is used and portrayed well! (and is voiced by Keith David)

I like this design for elite armor, but the Arbiter was specifically ceremonial armor, so I'm not sure if it fits to base all future armor upon it. I do believe some of the halo 3 armors in multi-player were older models that had been out of production since the forming of the covenant. Assault armor was Pre-Covenant, as was the standard combat harness.

Arbiter's armor was definitely ceremonial armor, and that's why these base Elites are not quite there, but I think a return to their roots would see an increased pride in their own designs, and the elements that made that ceremonial armor would start showing up in more and more of their new crafts.

Gost? ;P

Liking the approach to Post-Halo 3 Sangheili armour. New, but subtly so and still properly recognisable, unlike Bungie's Halo 3 > Halo: Reach differences.

Ooops, fixed!

Yeah, I view Reach as a spinoff so I'm ok with a bit of an exaggerated style and some interesting armor variants presented in it, but the Halo 1-3 armors just seem more Sangheili, more fitting for their personality. Somewhere between 2 and 3's versions - that's my idea of an Elite.

Definitely very content with that approach and I agree.
