Is this just a 'sparetime' project? Your work is really top-notch.

Hey, thanks man. That means a lot.

I suppose practice time is over now and this one was more fun to do as well which helps.

Want to see a couple of these dudes armed and lit in a scene now.

Cheers

Hey sunny10471,

thanks for the compliment.

As for the novel...

It's called 'The Talos Project' and will be a science-fiction webcomic to begin with. Not sure of the launch date although prob something like april next year. Was gonna be sooner but I want to make it better and let take as long as it needs to be the way I want it.

A little more has been mentioned earlier in the thread about the story, but all I can say beyond that is the soldier I'm building now is just a general security dude, and I will be making another elite team based on the design but a little improved whom are referred to as 'the hounds'
This name is a reference to 'The Hounds of Hades' and they form a special team which act as a contingency plan in case of a problem with Talos. Talos is the codename for a soldier who the product of a special program called 'The Talos Project'. The project was initiated to create a superior soldier involving genetic selection and manipulation along with a regulated up-bringing.
That's prob all I can say so far but I will let you all know when the official site is up which will give you more info and the actual webcomic itself.

Cheers

Gio

Things will only get better, as there are much cooler things to build coming up, and I haven't even built any guns yet, but all in good time,
