Dune - Fedaykin Death Commandos by Gorrem Dune - Fedaykin Death Commandos by Gorrem
Finished this while waiting for Simcity to download, but of course Origin refuses to give me my product 2 hours after midnight... THANKS, OBAMA.

Anyway, these guys are sort of like sand ninjas that have been training in the harshest environment in the known universe, making them the most deadly warriors on Arrakis. In the first three books, these guys wreck everything. Their Krys knives can't be sheathed once drawn unless they are coated with blood, and they don't leave their dead behind in order to preserve the water of their bodies. unadulterated bad-asses.

I figured that they would need protective sleeves for their arms and legs more than regular stillsuits- not for fight protection, but just from regular climbing and stumbling over rocks and sand and riding sandworms in their spare time since Fedaykin are so active. They wear inscribed clothing since they are raised in a very religious culture (much like muslim and christian warriors used to) as protection or blessing, and the round water counter-like jewelry. Fremen gotta 'frem yo.

I'm on my 3rd re-read of the 1st three Dune books and then I stumbled upon this beautiful piece. I've loved Dune and the idea of the Fedaykin desert warrior has always been facinating to me. This is an excellent piece of work, I love it!

Finally someone who managed to get Fremen right!! You've captured the utilitarian aspect of the book, and the personalities perfectly. This is beyond amazing, it is exactly how I pictured them.

I really liked it ! It remembers the first books of Herbert... *sigh*
It's very impressive, the muslim / zensunni religious part is well rendered in your art. Maybe the krys is not like I imagined it.

Dude, very unique work, I think you found a niche, and it's fab.
They look like they have water built in their suits so they have a supply of it in hot desert environments.
