Is that a Daofei?

49 posts in this topic

Hi all,
in the most recent Infinity BoW video, there was this picture, on which we can see 2 Guijia, Tiger Soldiers... aaand a possible Daofei? Personally I think it looks very similar to the current design, but with updated shoulder pads and gauntlets. What do you people think?

I think that is a Hac Tao. No long braid.

Not that I wouldn't mind an update.

The braid wouldn't necessarily be visible from this angle, but yeah, except for being less bulky, the other thing kinda match with the concept... 

Would be nice tho, if the new Daofei would look similar in design to the current (old) ones, with some new armour elements (but with 'slim' braid).

He's got Hac Tao shoulders. Funny if so, he's more dangerous than those TAGs.

I hope it's a Hac Tao, and that this confirms Hac Tao for Invincible Army...

Pretty much that's a Hac tao. The characteristic forearm armor plates identify him as such. Other than Yan Huo, no other YuJing HI features so much protection on their forearms.

How does that confirm anything?

If it's a Hac Tao, then why is it visible? :P

I think it looks like a Daofei too. It's the helmet.

Could be the old hac Tao design, it was on the cover of N3 after all.

When I saw it I thought Hac Tao for the helmet and chestplate with the little lines coming out which is a detail on the Hac Tao, although I'll admit the backpack isn't as bulky but that could be the positioning.

Would be nice if we got a Daofei resculpt though. Awesome rules should get awesome models. I just use an out of print Invincible I find prettier to proxy.

I want a daofei redesign too, but it's a hac tao.

I was stretching, it really doesn't.

But in my head, Tigers we know are invincible army, and Guijia are pretty likely too as I recall, so a scene of a bunch of IA things alongside a Hac Tao... it kinda makes sense.

Daofei forehead plate does not encircle the eyes, ending around the cheekbones.

The forehead plate on the Hac Tao completely encircles around the eyes, contouring around the corners for both the new and old designs. It's just harder to see with the newer ones due to the pose of the HMG and visor on the hacker.

The image lines up with the Hac Tao dossier, though the pose and proportions seem a bit off. A 2D interpretation can get away with exaggerations as long as it is thematically appropriate. I for one, love Obari.

There seems to be am overall push to either maintain differences in helms (Hac Tao, domaru, and the 2nd Gen Hsien's dragon iconography) or add to them (wu ming).

I think it's Beba's TAG, it has the right Tattoo on the right thigh and the big bolts on the calves. I wonder what it is doing though.

Yeah it looks like it. Either that or another Anaconda based TAG.

As for what it's doing, either it's reporting for duty or about to exercise it's plot armor.

Or it is a spoiler for it to be straight up dying in the next panels.

I think it is strange that none of the Yu Jing troops are pointing their guns at it. Even though Carlos has said that some PanO are baddies, I just can't get my hopes up for Yu Jing being portrayed as goodies, especially since an Indigo, Emily (who looks heaps cool by the way) is a central character.

I colorized this image on photoshop that I recently acquired.

Pretty sure it's a Hac Tao, faceplate is distinctive.

 

And Beba's TAG had been kneecapped immediately before that panel, so was kneeling.
