Hey... I'm promoting DUNG BEETLE artwork in one of my journals along with a stage play I wrote called THE DISAPPEARING DUNG BEETLE that is being released on DA weekly. I have your work linked into the piece! It'a great pic! Thanks!!!!!
I think the interesting difference between halo wars and the halo trilogy is the time lapse in technology. Halo wars occurs in 2531 when the remainder of the Halo games take place in 2552. Much of the covenants technology looks aged and bulkier then the streak streamlined versions seen in 2552. The Scarab for example has far more leg armor and fewer articulating points which would result in far reduced mobility. Additionally the head laser appears to be fixed in place as opposed to the newer model which has a neck of sorts. Again this would mean reduced mobility and an inability for the scarab to move its main cannon. Lastly I noticed that the deck is quite a bit more sloped and there is only one door from the interior to the deck. Which would mean that the covenant would be unable to station infantry on it. Although this also means that the MC would be unable to jump on and slay it with ease : p.
