6th Hand by Zaeta-K 6th Hand by Zaeta-K
The United Planetary Defense's secret unit "The 6th Hand."

Other than the fact that they take their name from an old Tarian legend about a shadow that ate children, nothing else is known about them besides they exist.

Instead of the standard UPD colors of olive-drab and white eye lenses, members of the 6th Hand don white uniforms with red eye lenses. The top portion of the helmet is able to slide down in front of the mask for additional ballistic protection.

This is so awesome. I love how sinister and mysterious they are...kinda like ghosts, if you will. And I bet the legend they're named after is really cool, haha.

I'll have to think of the full legend instead of just throwing in some excuse to call them the 6th Hand haha.

Cool. It's refreshing to see you actually included pouches and places to attache various gear. So often when we see this type of armored combat suit, the designer forgets that a soldier actually has to carry things on his person and that it won't actually all fit into one pocket or on a utility belt. The classic Stromtroopers from Star Wars are a perfect example of this flawed idea, where all they have is just a small utility belt, but then are thrown into every kind of combat situation, though I guess if all they're going to carry is that one standard issue blaster then it might not matter as much.

Still, seeing something like this, with just the addition of the pouches and gear, automatically lends a bit more believability to the concept I think. Nice work.

Wow man, thanks haha :D

I agree; I always try and picture what my characters need in terms of pouches and all that depending on their role.

Being that these guys are just destroyers, I felt it necessary to deck them out in all sorts of pouches.

I suppose so haha

My favorite parts are the shin guards/greaves and the face armor. Almost seems Xandu-like with the glowing eyes and all, but also uniquely its own thing. Seems like a good snow assault trooper.

I really wouldn't be surprised. You gain some writing skills, unless you already have them, and parade it around with this, and you've got yourself a video game or movie or book or SOMETHING. Graphic novel? Perhaps I'm jumping to conclusions here, so no problemo.
