    Fartuess mean the UT3 Skaarj Character Mod created by EvilEngine. A wicked sick and fantastic model for the details.

      Or maybe the inofficial UT2007/UT3 concept art from the original post.

      Since I was no Unreal player, only had a UT99 childhood and later a UT3 maturity, I don't have any affections to Skaarjs, so I don't really care to be heard on this matter.
      Just from a personal design taste point of view, I like those guys from Blackcracks post. But they're also supposed to be Kralls, not Skaarjs.




      Those faces have a menacing and yet harmonical familiar expression to me. A great feeling for such a real Alien species. Maybe 'toad' would come closest but I like it very much that I can't clearly attribute an animal we know to them (no exagerated "hollywoodification" if that word exists or can be understood anyway, like what Jurassic Park did to dinosaurs). They also remind me of the strong and massive yet somewhat neutral or calm impressions the big "moai" stone statues on the Easter Islands give me. Very interesting design direction imo!

        The Sunkralls model created by MacTom27. It not a bad idea if may return in the new UT as custom character.

          in any case better as an Krall, as an monster and something who not recalls on the Original..

          maybe can anyone ask MacTom27 if he make some Krall's for ue4 ?
          because it can later use for the Unreal1 Revival . He have certainly yet the original Modell's

          You mus see they are if they have no helm's on the head, really nice and fit's really on the Original Krall's
          but only more "real" or like i can say .. more alive and less comic ..
          and the officially UT3 Krall-Monsters be totally **** and totally
          unreasonably/inflated and have really nothing to do with krall's *imho..*

            Another take on my skaarj guy:

            UT4: CTF-Defiance, CTF-Melt.

              Looks pretty good! reminds me some a mix from the Skarrj model of Unreal(1998) and Unreal II

                No i meant this:

                Which, from what i remember epic saying, was created while developing UT3, but was never implemented into the final game.

                  this fit's easy .. also for an Unreal Planet also, let view how looks on 3D
                  it look's to be in direction the real original

                    But the cybernetic left arm i don't like so much in my opinion, i prefer the classic claw on hands.

                      do you know what's classic, then look the original on, normally should be something like biologic extendable,
                      stretchable something like fish fins, but more stable .. like an fish fin thorn.. because,
                      the Skaarj's comes from an wet planet or something.. in any case an invasion liveform ..
                      how ever, up to now have i not see an really well orginal Skaarj, every an really well try's
                      but not an really well one .. from Unreal1 or Unreal99 . you know ..

                      and well Krall's we need also.. but need therefore an own tread ..
                      but in any case not something like in 2007 .. this was not krall's, this was an something monster but not an krall
                      an krall it's for me something like in unreal1 and ut99 . and the Sunkrall's

                      best regards

                        I tried keep an open mind to all the new concepts, but I just can't do it anymore! The original Skaarj to me clearly were inspired by the Alien vs Predator comics, combining elements from both the Yautja and the Xenomorphs. The blades, humanoid shape, technology and warrior culture of the yautja, the tail, caste system, ruthlesness and geiger-like architecture of the Xenomotphs (or rather, the Space Jockeys). Of course epic added a lot of things to make them stand on their own, but the roots are hard to deny. I feel we need to be careful to move too far away from that. As to the predatorial nature of the Skaarj, think more space ninja and less velociraptor.

                            I totally agree that this Alien/Predator connection still should be there.
