After a short break to get my ideas in order and re-evaluate the look and story of Gladius Dei, I came to a conclusion that it was a bit to tame. The characters were to “typical” and stereotyped for my taste. So I decided to go a bit more extreme on them. Using some of the inspirations and ideas I had when I was rethinking the Zorro story, I came to this concept, a stylized future based on the DieselPunk/SteamPunk stylings.
And so I give you the first of these new versions.
This is Deacon Cross in his Combat Suit.
Originally looking like this:[link]
I felt he look to standard, to “the token big black guy of the team”. Now he is going to be the team’s armourer. Stuck in a wheelchair, he goes to combat in this Deisel Powered combat suit.
