Still better than Scylla.

No chance.

I think Scylla is pretty cool. She looks like she is peeking around the corner while hacking to see if anything is going to go boom.

 

I think the glasses would look better painted as a visor but that's my one nitpick. She instantly reminded of a post-human Liz Lemon

Honestly, it would not be that huge a challenge to mod the glasses to make them either round, or more Librarian-esque.

Oddly appropriate....

Honestly I do think that a lot of the problems people have with Scylla come from those rotating, squashed photos

 

A non-rotated, non-squashed version will look fine I think.

 

And even if I disliked it (which I don't) then I'd just the Chandra spec-ops in place of Scylla.

 

Wonder if the Argyraspides are going to be a new troop type, though. "Double-A" suggests that they might be some kind of Rasail style guys who have a G-sync'd Devabot and various profiles including specialists and SWC loadouts. That'd be very cool, and introduce some flexibility to SP that they lack while still retaining their direct approach to tactical problems.

Funny thing is, that's actually an amazingly good way to demonstrate what's so horrible about the glasses.

 

Imagine if this woman's glasses were extruded from her face and you were trying to make the horrid choice between "paint the extrusion so that it looks good from the side" and "paint the extrusion so that it looks good from the front".  And then look at the glasses from an angle so that you see both sides at their weakest.  :confident:

You end up with the model looking like it's wearing these

instead of glasses.

 

It's one of those mistakes on par with putting the Combined Army drone's back panels on backwards.  :blush: You can imagine how it was done on schedule, but it's just not the right thing to do.

Scylla box looks good to me. I don't play Aleph, though.

So Scylla either has severe scoliosis or is half-centaur half-snake, and Drakios suffers from priapism (Which has to be an absolute bitch in combat).

 

They are ASS's affirmative action hires?

 

 

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

 

That brought a smile to my face.

After 1000+ Hours in MS Paint, I think the reason the pose appears awkward is because she is in what seems to be a pretty serious lean which would cause her body to tighten, but the hacking arm looks weak the way it is brought in towards the body. Simply extending the arm a little ought to go a long way into improving her look.

Actually, I think the legs are the most awkward looking. Both feet are flat on the ground and legs are locked. It makes the lean look forced/uncomfortable. I think a mid stride pose would've looked better with the leaning like the old female interventor.

But even still, I like her model including the glasses.

Anyway I will be buying them, I think overall they are a win and I like the character Scylla has even if the glasses seem big

 

You always have to be contrary to popular opinion, don't you?

 

I'll be doing a head swap for sure, there's no way I can work with those hideous things on her face. I've got some awesome female heads from Statuesque put away for Infinity conversions, I think one of the pony-tail ones will suit her perfectly :_aww__rvmp_by_bad_blood:

If so its certainly not intentional. I'm honest and I dont care what others think. If that happens to be contrary so be it.

I have some statuesque heads as well bit they feelslightly to big to me.

Scylla doesn't ARO she just gets triggered. Look at the those Tumblr glasses.

Maybe she'd look better with a different paint scheme.... I think I've seen glasses like that before...

Now that the shock for how ugly Scylla is I must say ... aren't Drakios legs bending unnaturally or is just me? If this are the future 3D dolls for Aleph mala tempora currunt ...

Maybe an idea for a Scylla conversion? Would be pretty funny in-game - I can see it now -

So... when can we see the profiles ?

And why they are a box set ?
