HALO: FAITH - Hunter by ApneicMonkey HALO: FAITH - Hunter by ApneicMonkey
I actually thought I had finished on HALO: FAITH but the team liked my work so much they asked me to continue and do some 'redesigns' of some of the Covenant aliens that will appear in the film.

The idea was to present a more realistic and frightening version of each of the enemy species while keeping them completely recognizable to the fans and also adhering to the canon of the HALO universe.

The Hunter (Mgalekgolo) was the most difficult for me as they are already pretty scary in the games and there is a specific canon that they wear armor provided by the Elite class (Sangheili). Because they are supposed to be a large tangle of worm-like creatures encased in this armor, I went with an idea that the exterior should look as if it were binding them much like the Kayan Lahwi or African neck rings.

Much more intimidating than they were before. Mgalekgolo (Hunter) 'Siege' class approved.
Scale: Same size as the forward half of a Scarab. Minimum.

Really like the armor texture, and the detail on the shield.
I don't see enough pictures of Hunters.

Good Hunter reference was definitely hard to find when I was painting this - I had to make screen caps from HALO: Reach myself to check all the details.

Yeah, I tried to draw one once but gave up because not enough reference...
Your efforts paid off here. :)

This is fantastic. Love fighting hunters, anything that's twice my size or bigger I find especially satisfying to defeat.

Especially on Legendary - Much more tactical. :)
