Quick update time. The Templar armor was easy enough to model but I had to figure out how I would approach it’s body. The gods can grant power to those they deem worthy, and the Templar is an example of too much power given to a vessel that could not contain it. There are other enemy design that show this at various stages, but the Templar body is completely gone and only light magic remains.
Originally I was going to just have the armor pieces floating for the model (sort of Ray Man like) but it got a little confusing when it came time for paint overs and you could see armor parts in the back through the spaces where the body should be. I made plain white geometry for the representation of his bodies silhouette to clear up the confusion and help make the paint over more consistent.
