The Sardaukar by jonbalaos The Sardaukar by jonbalaos
Fanatical soldiers of the Padishah Emperor in Frank Herbert's Dune novels. Here I present them in 3 different types, from left to right, pikeman, bladmaster and a lasketeer. (laser rifle or lasgun)

I'm also in the process of making a colored version. :)

Definitely waaay better than the design for that HBO Dune, those guys remind me the movie Baby's day out.

Roflmao!  Yeah, the TV series was said to be faithful to the novel. Production design however is a failure.

Like the hovercraft air vehicles. In the book, these vehicles are supposed to have flapping wings.

Speaking of production design just saw the old 80's Dune movie I loved the look of that film. I heard that HBO or SYFY made Children of Dune isn't that the third book?

Yup. They also did Dune Messiah before that. The second book is where Muadib went blind from a special bomb called a stoneburner. Then he saw visions of his future son who is one of the twins conceived by Chani. The third covers mostly about the twins, Duncan Idaho as a ghola and Leto Atreides becoming a sandworm.

Given that their version of Dune was such an eyesore, I'm not compelled to watch it.

Yeah, me too. Even the actress who played Chani doesn't look enticing, even if she did go "rated R" in one scene.

Yeah the women in that 80's Dune were much Hotter, the only saving grace for me in the HBO version was Councilor Troy had short hair Ahahahahahahahaha....

Sure! Coloring this will take a while though. But it will be finished.
