So heres the Soldier character model for my mod based on Fenomena's awesome art [link]
First of all, sorry for taking so long with this one guys, its a bit difficult to find time to work on it atm
The spade-for-a-hand thing, i thought and thought about this over and over again. Yes, it would be cool to implement it, but in the end, it would probably cause way more problems with animations than what its worth. Plus i would hate to model it now and have to remove it at a later stage.
I added the leg irons to add a bit of detail to his feet.
Im tempted to give him a bit of chest hair. But his textures are already quite heavily painted and i dont want to deviate from the TF2 style too much
