I was kinda disappointed with the roachlings in heart of the swarm. Drew what I expected them to look like:
Idk, modeling challenge maybe. Might model it myself sometime later.
@phanalax128: Go The Roachling isn't supposed to be related to Zerglings, it is a smaller and faster Roach. But I agree it was cheap to simply resize the model.
Considering the mitoscarabs you got the tech from were just downsized chief roach models, I would not complain.
Contribute to the wiki (Wiki button at top of page) Considered easy altering of the unit textures?
Your idea of roachlings looks like it'd be a good ... hybridization ... of the two Zerg ground breeds. I like it!
Lacks the three eyes of the roach. The malformed wings is a good tough but I would add something to the tail and maybe extend the front part of the claws for a more scythe like look.
Yeah I did this one without any reference, I'll see if I can make some proper reference sketches
Looks cool. Doesn't look too roachlike though, more like a zergling with armour plates... which is roachlike. How many legs is it suppose to have? I'm counting 5 in the image. I'm guessing 6?
4 legs, your probably mistaking the claws for legs. I know there is a lack of contrast.
Really the only changes I atually made where to put a plate on its back, make its mouth more like the roaches, and change the claws slightly.
